Qatar and Senegal will both be searching for their first points of the 2022 World Cup when they meet on Friday afternoon.


The hosts produced a limp display in Sunday's tournament opener and slumped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Ecuador while two late Netherlands goals sunk the African side the following day.

The Qataris have been preparing for this tournament for a decade and are running out of time to make their mark on the pitch – particularly as it's the Dutch that await them in their final group game next week.

Even with Abdou Diallo and Cheikhou Kouyaté joining Sadio Mané on Senegal's injury list after being forced off against the Netherlands, the Lions of Teranga will be the favourites on Friday and know that a victory against Qatar should set up a winner takes all shoot-out against Ecuador for a place in the last 16.

Qatar v Senegal prediction

Whether it was Qatar buckling under the pressure of a decade of preparation or just a reflection of their level, Felix Sanchez's team were really poor in their opener and will have to be far, far better to take anything from this game.

Senegal saw all their hard work undone by two late goals against the Dutch but we can expect them to be in the ascendancy when they take on the hosts on Friday.

They may be without the talismanic Mané but there is more than enough attacking quality in Aliou Cissé's squad to pull apart a defence that looked all at sea against Ecuador.

Our prediction: Qatar 0-2 Senegal (6/1 at bet365)
