Senegal vs Netherlands Match Info

2022 FIFA World Cup — Group Stage
Senegal (0-0-0) vs. Netherlands (0-0-0)
Date: Monday, Nov. 21, 2022

The 2022 FIFA World Cup begins in less than a week. One of the first matches of the tournament takes place on Monday, Nov. 21 between Senegal and Netherlands. The 2018 World Cup didn't go too well for Senegal, failing to make it beyond the group stage. Meanwhile, the Netherlands weren't even good enough to qualify for the last edition of the tournament.

Can Senegal kickstart their third World Cup appearance with a victory? Or will Netherlands be victorious in their first tournament appearance since 2014?

Senegal vs Netherlands Prediction & Pick

Senegal's game plan is usually to try and score one goal before relying on defense to win the game. That's going to be easier said than done against a Netherlands team that's scored at least two goals in each of their last five games.

While I believe that the Sengalese defense is legit, Netherlands has much more international experience on their side. Being a three-time World Cup runner-up and placing third back in 2014, Netherlands has the tools to begin the latest tournament with a victory.

Final Score Prediction: Netherlands: 2 | Senegal: 1
