Senegal vs Colombia | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Senegal and Colombia meet in the final round of matches in Group H on Thursday afternoon, with both sides still in with a chance of reaching the knockout phase of the World Cup in Russia. Just a single point separates the duo in the standings, meaning that three points for either nation will confirm their place in the Round of 16.
There is still all to play for in Group H as we head into the final round of games on Thursday afternoon. Japan currently lead the way on four points, whilst Senegal will face off against Colombia in Samara with both sides currently sitting on three points. That means that Colombia must win this game to progress or draw the game and hope that Poland beat Japan, whilst a draw would be enough to see Senegal go through to the last 16. Both of these sides are filled with exciting attacking players including the likes of Sadio Mane, Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez and so we could be in for a thrilling encounter on Thursday afternoon.
Senegal News & Form
Senegal will have been disappointed not to have beaten Japan in their last game after twice taking the lead in the match before being pegged back. Liverpool forward, Sadio Mane, gave Senegal an 11th minute lead and when Moussa Wague restored Senegal’s lead in the 71st minute it looked as though they would win the game. Keisuke Honda had other ideas though as Japan levelled things up in the 78th minute to take control of Group H. It was a game which Senegal really needed to win and even though they only need a draw against Colombia in this final game, it is not going to be easy.
Colombia News & Form
Colombia recovered from their shock 2-1 defeat to Japan by turning in a dominating display during a 3-0 victory over Poland. Goals from Yerry Mina, Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado gave them a convincing victory over a strong Polish side and they should be able to carry that momentum over into this game. Abel Aguilar will miss the game through injury, but Carlos Sanchez will return from the suspension he picked up for his red card in the first group game. This Colombian side is packed with quality and it would be a real loss to the tournament if they don’t make it through, in my opinion.
Senegal vs Colombia Head to Head
The two nations have met just once in the past, coming in a friendly encounter back in May 2014, when an entertaining 2-2 draw was played out. Senegal came from two goals down to claim a point that day, however with no matches having taken place between the duo in over four years, few conclusions can be made from the head-to-head record between the two nations.
Senegal vs Colombia Odds and Predictions
Group H has been one of the most exciting groups so far, with every game containing more than 2.5 goals. Both teams could make it through with a draw in this one, but that would leave Colombia relying on Poland beating Japan, so I think Colombia have got to go for the win. I’m backing the Colombians to win this game and in James Rodriguez, Juan Cuadrado and Radamel Falcao, they have enough quality players in attack to hurt anyone.
The bookies have priced this game up very closely, with Japan starting the match as slight favourites at odds of 8/5, whilst a win for Poland is priced up at 7/4, with the draw available at 11/5. I’m backing Poland to upset the odds and win this game on Thursday and so the 7/4 odds on that look very tempting to me. There has been over 2.5 goals in every group game so far in Group H and therefore, Poland to win and over 1.5 goals at 27/10 looks like a superb bet to me. Lewandowski has failed to find the net so far in the tournament, but after scoring 16 goals in qualifying I’m backing him to score at anytime in this game at odds of 5/4.
Our Top Betting Tip: “BTTS”
Colombia start this game as favourites at odds of 17/20, whilst a win for Senegal is priced up at 17/5, with the draw available at 5/2. Whilst the draw could potentially suit both teams, I don’t think Colombia can really play for one in this game and they will have to go for the win. I do think that both teams will score in this game though and the 20/23 available on that looks like pretty good value. Taking that one step further, Colombia to win and BTTS (YES) is priced up at 3/1 and that would be my pick. Colombia captain, Radamel Falcao is available at 7/2 to open the scoring and after scoring in the last game I’m backing him to do the same again.
