Senegal vs Netherlands: Team News, Injury Update And Predicted Lineup.

On Monday, Senegal will face the Netherlands in Group A of the ongoing World Cup. This will be the third match of the FIFA World Cup 2022. This will be the first time that either side has played the other; they have never met before.

The match will kick off at 4 pm GMT in Al Thumama, Qatar, exactly 24 hours after the hosts’ opening match begins against Ecuador on Sunday.

On Monday at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha, the current winners of the Africa Cup of Nations, Senegal, will play host to the Netherlands in the third game of the FIFA World Cup 2022.

Senegal has a solid defensive unit, but Sadio Mane, is their finest attacking player, is sidelined due to injury. Despite their own fitness issues, the Netherlands enter their first World Cup since 2014 in terrific shape. Since Louis van Gaal was hired as manager for the third time last year, the Dutch have gone unbeaten in 15 games.

  • Injury and team news:

Although Memphis Depay leads the Netherlands‘ international scoring charts, he has been dealing with a hamstring problem ever since making his Oranje debut in September. The forward would not start their World Cup debut, according to Van Gaal, as he continues to heal. Marten de Roon and Denzel Dumfries are still questionable starters for this game.

Mane has been formally disqualified from the tournament despite attempts to repair the fibula fracture he incurred on November 8—including using a witch doctor. Abdou Diallo also has knee issues, which is a concern.

  • Possible Lineup:

Senegal’s possible starting lineup:
E. Mendy; Sabaly, Cisse, Koulibaly, Ballo-Toure; Kouyate, N. Mendy, I. Gueye; I. Sarr, Dia, Diatta

Netherlands possible starting lineup:
Pasveer; Timber, Van Dijk, Ake; Frimpong, F. De Jong, Koopmeiners, Blind; Klaassen; Gakpo, Bergwijn.

  • Senegal vs Netherlands: Scores Prediction:

Nine of Senegal’s past 14 goals in competitive games have either been scored by Mane or created by him. The Senegal front line has suffered a tremendous loss without the Bayern Munich star. The Netherlands will also feel Memphis’ absence very strongly, but Van Gaal likely has more choices for a striker than his rival. Even though the Netherlands’ defence is far from perfect, Van Gaal’s team should be able to defeat a Senegal team without its top player.

Prediction: Senegal 1 – 2 Netherlands
