We have prepared for you a prediction for the match England – Senegal in the 1/8 finals of the playoffs of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. England were the strongest in Group B, while Senegal finished second in Group A.
England are a stable team that should easily get past Senegal
England is ranked 5th in the FIFA rankings and 1st in the UEFA rankings. The British defeated Iran (6:2), a draw with the USA (0:0) and a victory over Wales (3:0). The team is stable and shows good results. They stumbled only with the United States, when they failed to score.
Top scorer is Marcus Rashford, followed by Bukayo Saka, Jack Grealish, Philip Foden, Sterling, Jude Bellingham and Eric Dyer. Of the assistants, I would mention Harry Kane, Sterling, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Callum Wilson and Calvin Phillips.
England continues to move boldly through the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. She looks like a potential finalist for this tournament and should go through Senegal.
Senegal national team – reaching the playoffs is already a significant achievement for this team
Senegal is ranked 18th in the FIFA rankings. In this tournament, Bamba Dieng, Famara Diediou, Boulae Dia, Sarr and Kalidou Koulibaly scored for Senegal. Of the assistants, I would mention Ndiaye and Ismail Jacobs.
According to Senegal’s statistics, the national team has 1.4 goals per match. In this tournament, the Senegalese conceded in every match, scored two or more goals against Ecuador and Qatar. Senegal has scored five goals and four conceded goals in the tournament.
Senegal is unlikely to be able to impose a worthy competition on England, the team has already gone far, it will be difficult against the British.
England v Senegal: betting on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar
England shows a stable game, they have stable and stellar players in the squad. The Senegalese did not defeat strong opponents, they lost 0:2 against the Netherlands. The main star of the Senegalese – Mane dropped out, and even without him they were able to leave the group.
For Senegal, the quarter-final is a significant achievement, but for England it is only an easy stepping stone to the semi-finals.
Of the interesting markets for the match England – Senegal, I would note the following outcomes:
- England win at 1.55 (minimum risk)
- England to win by 2 goals at 2.65
- England individual total over 1.5 for 1.89
- Senegal not to score at 1.84
