Our prediction for this World Cup 2018 match:
Thanks to a 2-0 win over South Africa at Peter Mokaba Stadium Senegal booked their place at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals. The likes of Sadio Mane, DIafra Sakho and Kalidou Koulibaly will represent the Lions of Teranga at the showpiece tournament in Russia and they will be looking to put icing on the cake on a very successful qualifying campaign with a win over Bafana Bafana at their Stade Leopold Sedar Senghor. Senegal fans will surely pack the stadium and we predict that Aliou Cisse are going to give them yet another reason for celebration. South Africa have nothing to play for in Tuesday’s football match against the Lions of Teranga and we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. A man to watch in the home team will be aforementioned attacker Sadio Mane, who has recently overcome his injury.
Highlighted Player (Opa Nguette):
After spending his youth career at Mantes and Valenciennes, Opa Nguette made his senior debut for Mantes in 2011. In 2012 he returned to his boyhood club Valenciennes and it has to be noted that the attacker scored 8 goals in 60 appearances for the club from 2012 to 2016. Opa Nguette is currently playing for Metz in Ligue 1 and his contract with the club expires on June 30, 2019. The pacey footballer who is capable of playing as both left and right winger has three caps for France U20 team, but he made his senior debut with Senegal. Opa Nguette played 65 minutes in a 1-1 draw with Nigeria on his debut for the Senegal national team. The Caen attacker, who was born in Mantes-la-Jolie on July 8, 1994, scored four goals for Metz in the 2016/2017 Ligue 1 campaign. He made three assists for his teammates as well during the season and you should bear in mind that he played 33 games in the league for les Grenats.
Highlighted Team (Senegal):
The Senegaesel national football team made their first appearance at Africa Cup of Nations back in 1965, with the team finishing the tournament in fourth place. The Lions of Teranga booked their place at the FIFA World Cup finals in 2002 (for the first time) and they did remarkably well to make it to the quarter-finals of the showpiece tournament in South Korea and Japan. Senegal defeated Sweden in the last 16, with Henri Camara scoring the winner for the African team in the extra time. The Lions of Teranga have yet to win the Africa Cup of Nations, but they made it to the final of the tournament in 2002. Senegal faced Cameroon in the title game and they were more than unfortunate to lose the Africa Cup of Nations final on penalties. Former Liverpool ace El Hadji Diouf is probably the most famous footballer who played for the Senegalese national team. Senegal play their home games at Stade Leopold Sedar Senghor and the capacity of the venue is 60,000.
