Senegal vs. Qatar picks:
Why you should give your support to Senegal
Despite Mane’s absence, the team that will win the 2022 African Cup of Nations can still have a starting eleven that is packed with players who are now employed by some of the most prestigious clubs in the history of football. Idrissa Gueye, a former mainstay for Paris Saint-Germain who currently plays for Everton, is a former top option for Chelsea in the Premier League. Edouard Mendy, a goalkeeper, and Kalidou Koulibaly, a defender, are both both top choices for Chelsea.
Both teams are coming off of opening games in which they were defeated by scores of 2-0; however, Qatar was the first host nation to lose its opening match, which was a game against Ecuador in which they were only slight underdogs, whereas Senegal was defeated by a Netherlands team that is considered to be a contender for the World Cup. In addition, despite their defeat, Senegal held 46% of the possession of the ball and led the Dutch in both shots taken (15-10) and shots on target .
Why you should provide your support to Qatar
Almoez Ali, who plays for Qatar, is a prolific goalscorer for his team. Ali, a striker who is 26 years old, has scored 41 goals for his country. At both the 2019 Asian Cup and the 2021 Gold Cup, he finished as the tournament’s leading scorer for the team. On Sunday, Ali created the best scoring opportunities for the squad, despite the fact that they were not successful.
