Senegal vs Netherlands Betting Preview and Prediction

Senegal vs Netherlands Betting Prediction

Senegal won the African Cup of Nations for the first time last January and had high hopes for this World Cup. Hopes that were (at least mildly) put to sleep after their star man, Sadio Mane, suffered an injury. The Netherlands, on the other hand, have a young and upcoming squad, but they want to prove they are more than that. They don’t want to be the team of the future. They want to be the team of the present. They face each other in this Senegal vs Netherlands World Cup tie.

Senegal team news

Losing Sadio Mane is a major blow for Senegal. The Bayern forward is one of the best players the country has ever produced and one of the top in the world right now. Manager Aliou Cisse, an emblematic figure in African football, has stated that he believes Mane will be ready to go from the second group stage match, but the consensus idea is that he will miss the whole tournament.

That being said, Senegal is a great team, filled with talent. Cisse’s men play at some of the top European leagues and they know the name of the game.

The plan is simple. Try to keep things tight against the Netherlands, one of the fastest-paced international teams in world football. A draw here will be nothing to be scoff about.

Netherlands team news

If Cisse is an emblematic figure, what can you say about Louis van Gaal? He led his talented but inexperienced squad to the Nations League finals and it is sure that this Oranje side has plenty of potential.

The Netherlands’ defence is filled with world-class players. The likes of van Dijk, Ake, de Ligt, Dumphries, and Blind (who is probably your favourite footballer’s favourite footballer, a deeply underrated wing-back) offer security, unlike the 39-year-old goalkeeper Remco Pasveer. Van Gaal’s midfield has talent in the form of Berghuis, de Jong and de Roon, while offensively you could just shut your eyes and point at someone to get the job done. Memphis Depay will likely sit out for this opener, as he picked up a minor injury, but there are so many solutions for van Gaal, that this should bother him all that much.

Predicted Lineups

Senegal (4-5-1): E. Mendy; F. Mendy, Cisse, Koulibaly, Ballo-Toure; Diatta, I. Sarr, Kouyate, I.Gueye, N. Mendy; Dia
Netherlands (3-4-3): Pasveer; Timber, van Dijk, Ake; Dumphries, Berghuis, F. de Jong, Blind; Klaasen, Gakpo, Bergwijn

Senegal vs Netherlands Betting Tip

Before we move on to our actual Senegal vs Netherlands betting tip, note you can wager on the game risk free with an online bookmakers welcome bonus. Senegal are a tough team to beat, but this Netherlands side has what it takes to get out of the group stage with three wins. I expect a fast-pace style of play from the Dutch and a physical approach by Senegal. I like the odds for Senegal getting over 2.5 bookings.
