England – Senegal betting tip & odds comparison 04.12.2022
Having successfully scaled the Group Stage hurdle, England and Senegal will lock horns for. Palace in the last of the FIFA World Cup.
England’s performance have surprised many so far especially those who hinged their analysis on the Three Lions’ poor run before the tournament. Here, they will look to consolidate on their Group stage showing and get a place in the next stage of the tournament.
For Senegal, it’s a first last 16 appearance in 20 years and a second one in their entire history. They will be hoping to put Africa on the map once again and shock Southgate’s men.
The World Cup is about to get intriguing as teams jostle for survival. For this tie, we will be taking odds from Cyberbet and Frapapa.
They head into this phase as Group B winners having earned 2 wins and 1 draw. Their first win, a 6-2 thumping of Iran, came after a dismal run of no wins in 6 games and relegation from Nations League A. Despite their pre-tournament poor form, England were able to steady the ship, building on that Iranian win to earn a draw against USA and a emphatic 3-0 victory over Wales.
In this tie, they will be hoping to scale another hurdle as they look to replicate or better their 2018 Semi Final and remain in contention for a first major tournament since 1966.
Having started off with a 2-0 loss to Netherlands, the Teranga Lions reignited their fortune with a 3-1 win over hosts Qatar and a 2-1 over Ecuador. With this, they garnered 6 points on the board, earning them second place in Group A and a tie against the 3 Lions.
As the second African side to take on England in the knockout phase of the World Cup in 32 years, Aliou Cisse’s men will have their eyes set on doing better than Cameroon whose fairytale run came to an end in the hands of England at Italia 90.
If they are successful here, Senegal will be replicating the heroics of Korea/ Japan 2002 when they earned their first Qaurter Final ticket at the World Cup. For a team that has been missing their main man Mane, Senegal have done well so far in the tournament.
