Senegal stunned Poland in their opener winning 2-1 but they then relinquished the lead twice against Japan eventually drawing 2-2.  Senegal will need to avoid defeat here to guarantee progression to the last 16.

Colombia got off to a rocky start losing 2-1 to Japan but they were far better in their second game, beating Poland 3-0.  They will need to beat Senegal to guarantee qualification.

These sides met in a friendly International in 2014 and drew 2-2.



Senegal 34/10

Draw 5/2

Colombia 17/20


Suggested bet:  Handicap, Senegal (+1) at 9/10.

I have been very impressed by the Senegal team and while Colombia certainly showed improved form in their second outing, I think that the African nation have what it takes to get something out of this game and in so doing book their spot in the next round.
