Qatar vs Senegal Prediction & Pick

The final score was not indicative to how Senegal played against the Netherlands. The Africans stayed in the mix until the very end and even had a few chances to take the lead. The same thing cannot be said about Qatar. They were down early in the first half and never had a shot to come back.

Both of these teams desperately need a win to stay in contention for a Round of 16 spot and I give the edge to Senegal. Senegal tallied 4 shots on target and earned 6 corners in its opening match. Qatar didn't notch a single shot on target and earned only 1 corner. The host team is struggling.

Final Score Prediction: Qatar: 1 | Senegal: 2

Qatar vs Senegal Best Bet

Three or more goals had been scored in each of Senegal's last five matches and in two of Qatar's last three matches prior to the World Cup. Each defense gave up 2 goals in the opening round of play, too. The rust has been shaken off, so expect both teams to find the back of the net in a high-scoring match.

Bet: Over 2.5 Goals (+136)
