Poland vs Senegal
FIFA World Cup Group H
Date: Tuesday, 19 June 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 GMT +2
Venue: Otkrytiye Arena, Moscow.
Poland and Senegal take on each other in a highly important clash especially for the African continent. Senegal is the only African team still to play with other four participants having lost their opening matches. Spartak’s home Otkrytiye Arena is the venue.
Senegal at their lone previous appearance at the biggest stage event saw the team go as far as reaching the quarter-final 16 years ago in Korea/Japan.
The Lions of Teranga possess a great talent like the 2002 side with the like of Sadio Mane leading the line in a manner El Hadji Diouf did back then. The current head coach Cisse was an important part of that squad in the center of the park and his experience at the 2002 tournament could be of a huge help now that he leads the team from the bench.
Nevertheless, Senegal will have anything but an easy task to go past the likes of Poland in their opener. Adam Nawalka’s side travelled to Russia with high expectations following the impressive run the team had two years ago at EURO in France where they were unlucky to suffer a quarter-final elimination to the latter champions Portugal on penalties.
This will only be the first ever head to head encounter between Poland and Senegal.
Both sides were dominant in their respective qualifying groups.
Both teams will come into the game in high spirits after winning their final warm-ups before the competition.
Senegal to win: 2.36
Poland to win: 3.62
Senegal and Poland to draw: 5.5
