🆚 Senegal vs Netherlands | FIFA World Cup 2022
🗓 Date: Monday, 21 November 2022
🕗 Start Time: 4:00 pm Senegal Time | 5:00 pm Dutch Time
🏟 Venue: Al Thumama Stadium
Senegal suffered a huge setback even before their opening game in the World Cup, with their talisman Bayern Munich forward Sadio Mane ruled out of the tournament due to injury.
The Lions of Teranga are the reigning African Cup of Nations champions. They took down Egypt in the playoffs on penalties to book their ticket for Qatar.
Without Sadio Mane, Aliou Cisse’s men have got a huge shoe to fill. They need to start positively to reach their second-ever knockouts.
On the other hand, the Netherlands head to the World Cup in excellent form. They won five, drew one in the Nations League in June and September, and topped their group, consisting of Belgium, Wales, and Poland.
It’s the first World Cup for the Oranje since their semi-finals finish in 2014. With the same boss Louis van Gaal at the helm, the dutchmen will hope to go deeper this time.
Though Barcelona forward Memphis Depay will be unavailable due to injury for this match, van Gaal has enough firepower up front to start their campaign on the right foot.
We waited long for this one. 🇳🇱

It will be the first-ever head-to-head meeting between the two sides.
Senegal vs Netherlands Prediction
Missing Sadio Mane is a huge setback for Senegal. The Bayern Munich forward either scored or assisted 9 of the team’s last 14 goals.
Senegal’s defense is generally solid. Kalidou Koulibaly and co kept six clean sheets in their last 8 competitive matches. However, they would have a tough night against the likes of Steven Bergwijn, Cody Gakpo, and Frenkie De Jong.
The Oranje are unbeaten in their last 15 games under Louis Van Gaal. They will be keen to secure a win tonight and keep the momentum flowing. Senegal 0-2 Netherlands.
