Qatar vs Senegal Betting Preview – 25.11

Qatar vs Senegal Betting

Very different football was shown in the first round by the teams of Qatar and Senegal. The hosts disappointed their fans, but Senegal looked convincing until the mistake from Edouard Mendy. The match between the national teams of Qatar and Senegal will be held on November 25, and get ready to discover our tips for the upcoming match!

Match Overview

Qatar, in the opening match, looked like a team that could not create a single moment. Not always the hosts of the World Cup are the favourites in the opening match, but still, the Qatari footballers won the Asian Cup relatively recently. They had twelve years of preparation for the World Cup.

Though they could not show anything on the field and emphatically lost to Ecuador 0:2. Even more confusing was the behaviour of the spectators, who left the stands without waiting for the final whistle, and the stadium was half empty.

Now they have to play with one of the strongest teams on the African continent, and with such an attitude, Qatar will not have anything in the second round. There was no single moment where they actually came close to scoring a goal. Against Senegal, it will be even more difficult.

Senegal was really on point in the first match against the Netherlands team. Had it not been a grave mistake from Edouard Mendy, Senegal could grab a point. But eventually, they lost 0:2 from the goals by Cody Gakpo and Davy Klaasen.

While Both teams lost with the same score, the difference is huge in quality. First of all, the Senegal national team looked solid. This is a fixed idea for the head coach of the team, Aliou Cisse, both on and off the field. Secondly, excellent interaction, pressure and sharpness at the opponent’s goal are noteworthy. However, at the same time, the ridiculous mistakes of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy were decisive.

Senegal have a weak bench. That is, the players are of high quality, but two players from the main squad were injured, and Senegal conceded two goals. They already lack Sadio Mane – undoubtedly the leader of the team. They are required to take three points in the match with Qatar, and then the decisive match with Ecuador will determine everything.

Expert Betting Tips for Qatar vs Senegal

This is a match that is pivotal for both national teams. Therefore a lot could happen, and here are the betting tips for punters:

Senegal to Win – 1.65

The Senegal national team surpass the hosts of the World Cup both in terms of individual performance and teamwork. The Senegalese have a large number of players from the Premier League, as well as players from La Liga, the Ligue 1, Serie A and the Belgian championship, while almost the entire Qatari team plays in the domestic championship.

Both teams lost with the same score of 0:2 at the start of the tournament, but if Qatar lost to Ecuador, then Senegal lost in a rather tough match to the more eminent team of the Netherlands. Senegal, in our opinion, has a much better chance of success in this meeting, and the opinion of the bookmakers completely coincides with ours. We suggest taking Senegal to win.

Both teams play pragmatic football. This year, the Qatar national team has played eight matches, seven of which were friendly. In seven out of eight games, no more than two goals were scored (88%).

Under 2.5 Goals – 1.65

Senegal, in this sense, is absolutely suitable as a rival to Qatar because in the matches of the Senegalese for this calendar year, under 2.5 goals were scored in ten out of 12 matches (83%). We believe that you should not count on a high-scoring game in this match, so we propose to bet on under 2.5 goals.

Under 9.5 Corners – 1.60

This year, in Qatar games, on average, 7.83 corners are taken. As for Senegal matches – 8.92. It should be noted that in each match of the Qatar national team, more than ten corners were not taken, and in the matches of Senegal, the bet on under 10.5 corners went in eight out of 12 cases (67%). We suggest choosing an outcome of nuder 9.5 corner kicks.

Total Under 4 Yellow Cards – 1.55

In Qatar matches this year, on average, 3.6 yellow cards are shown; in Senegal games – 3.5 yellow cards. Match referee Antonio Miguel Mateu Lahoz is famous for his loyalty. He rarely shows more than four cards in a match. We suggest taking under four yellow cards in this match.

Conclusion about Qatar vs Senegal

Based on the first matches of these teams, Senegal look clear favourites. Qatar did not even manage to record a shot on goal in 90 minutes. They looked lacklustre, and Ecuador won without too many problems. Senegal lost as well, but they put in a lot of resistance without Sadio Mane against the Netherlands. We think that Senegal will be able to win this match and try to fight against Ecuador in the third round.
