Poland vs Senegal Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Poland and Senegal are set to face each other at Otkrytiye Arena in Moscow in what is expected to be a very entertaining clash full of chances, goals, and betting opportunities for all the football lovers.
Poland, alongside Columbia, is a nation that is seen as a contender for the top place in Group H. Their squad is balanced but at the same time relays on their star striker Robert Lewandowski. If Senegal’s defensive line focuses or Robert someone else will likely have to step up. They were dominant in the qualifying process topping their group with eight wins in ten matches.
Lewandowski showed why he is considered to be one of the best strikes in the world with sixteen goals in the qualifying campaign. In 2018, they played four friendly matches. After the loss to Nigeria, they went on to get two wins and a draw. They drew to Chile by the score of 2-2 and defeated South Korea and Latvia. In the most recent clash, with Latvia, they showed how dominant they can be, winning the encounter by the score of 4-0. Lewandowski scored two goals in the first half, and in the second, Kownacki and Blaszczykowski added a goal each to set the final result. They are a slight favorite in this one, but if Senegal’s defense manages to block their lone striker, it will be a lot harder.
Senegal is bound to play with all that they have and give the European side a run for their money. Senegal has a number of quality players but without any doubt most of the pressure will be on Liverpool’s winger Sadio Mane who has had a great season with the club, having reached the finals of the UEFA Champions League. As part of their preparations for the competition, they played five games in 2018. Of those five, three ended as a draw, one as a defeat, and the most recent one against South Korea ended as a 0-2 win. Kim Young-Gwon gave Senegal the lead from an own goal and Konate secured the win in the second half stoppage time from the penalty spot.
Coach Aliou Cisse is likely to play in their old formation with four defenders after being heavily criticized for switching to a three-man defense. It is worth noting that The Lions of Teranga conceded on only one occasion in the last four friendlies. The importance of this game is enormous and it could heavily impact how the rest of the tournament goes for them. They have the misfortune to play one of the best teams in their group first as it could be a sword with two edges. In case of a win, their morale will skyrocket and in the case of a heavy loss, reach an all-time low.
The two teams will be playing their first match ever. We will have to wait and see how this exciting game ends and how it shapes the look of his group. This outing is a must see.
