Qatar World Cup 2022 Preview

Before the tournament, most fans did not know much about the Qatar team. The only World Cup debutant in 2022, they qualified for the tournament as hosts, played numerous test matches, but remained untested at tournament level.

In the first match of the World Cup, however, in which Qatar met Ecuador, one could already guess what one can expect from Qatar in the further course of the tournament. And for the hosts, this tournament course will not last much longer, because of all the teams, Qatar has presented itself the weakest so far.

Insecurities in the defense, a bad goalkeeper, but also a lack of ideas and courage in the attack characterize the game of the Qataris.

Overlyzer Live Trends Qatar vs. Ecuador
Qatar were unable to make an impact against Ecuador and remained harmless for the full duration of the match….

The team of the Spanish coach Félix Sánchez Bas looked extremely insecure and, with the exception of the attacker Akram Afif, hardly any player had the confidence to try to find a moment of surprise in the game. The midfield transition game was also weak, which is why they were practically never able to create any coherent attacking actions even against Ecuador, who the bookmakers rate as the second-weakest team in Group A.

Senegal World Cup 2022 Preview

The Senegalese have already received their worst news shortly before the tournament: Superstar Sadio Mané is absent due to injury and so coach Aliou Cissé had to change his successful team at the most crucial point. In a 4-2-3-1, Senegal will now use Boulaye Dia as a solo striker and a three-man line with Diatta, Gueye and Sarr behind him. Ismaila Sarr was particularly convincing on the first matchday against the Netherlands and was one of the strongest players in his team.

As expected, Senegal impressed with a high level of physicality that almost took the Netherlands down to their knees. The defensive midfield with Kouyaté and Mendy held up very well and the defenders were also largely convincing. Only in the last breaths of the game did the Senegalese concede two goals.

But even without Sadio Mané, Senegal showed that they are a force to be reckoned with. While there’s not a lot they can add from the bench, Senegal’s first eleven could definitely work. However, many injuries must not happen again and here we come to a likely concern: With Cheikhou Kouyaté and Abdou Diallo, two players had to be substituted against the Netherlands due to injury. Whether they will be fit for the match against Qatar is questionable for the time being.

Against the Netherlands, Senegal managed to keep the game completely open!

Regardless of who plays for Senegal, if they can bring their high level of physicality back onto the pitch and stay focused in attack, Qatar should not be a hindrance. So, nothing should stand in the way of the first three points for the African Cup winners.

+ Qatar were not at all convincing in their first match against Ecuador

The last duel

The duel between Qatar and Senegal has no history. The clash between the two nations at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is the first ever in football history.

Qatar – Senegal Over Under Tip

Both teams are without goals and points after the first match. If you take a closer look at the performances of the two teams, you can see that Senegal nevertheless have a good chance of qualifying for the last 16. However, a win over Qatar, who have no chance of advancing, is a must for this to happen.

We expect Senegal to dominate the game and have the possession of the ball most of the time. Possession statistics of at least 60% for the Senegalese do not look unlikely in this match.

With Qatar entrenched deep in their own half, the encounter could become a game of patience for Senegal, but with Qatar weak in transition play and hardly finishing counter-attacking chances, the first goal for Senegal will still only be a matter of time.

With the first goal, the Senegalese should finally be able to break the deadlock and it is quite conceivable that the currently best African team will then score one or two more goals – even without superstar Sadio Mané. That is why we are betting on an “over 2.5”, i.e. at least three goals in the match.

Qatar – Senegal Prediction

Qatar are a hot contender to end the tournament after just three games without any points. The performance against Ecuador was bloodless and lacking in courage, basic technical things are missing and the physical component is also lacking for the Qataris.

Senegal, on the other hand, suffered the expected defeat against the Netherlands, but showed stability and kept the game open for a long time. After this disappointing defeat, Aliou Cissé’s team will now be on the attack, and the weak hosts from Qatar are just what they need.

We are betting on a win for Senegal, for which Bet365 currently offers attractive odds of @1.61. However, you can also consider placing a handicap bet on Senegal, because the Africans should be able to score more than one goal against the inexperienced Qataris.

Qatar – Senegal Correct Score Bet

Senegal will comfortably win the match against Qatar. It is to be expected that Qatar will not create many scoring opportunities against the physically strong Senegalese either.

If the hosts play as badly as they did in their opening match against Ecuador, it will even be difficult to create a single scoring chance. Moreover, Qatar failed to create any dangerous set-pieces against Ecuador, which made scoring goals even more difficult.

Senegal, on the other hand, will attack against Qatar and not back down. After the 2-0 loss against the Netherlands, they also want to do to improve their goal difference and the attacking power of the Senegalese should be sufficient to score several goals. That is why we are betting here on an outright 3-0 victory for Senegal.
