Senegal v Colombia Prediction & Betting Tips – World Cup 201828th June 2018 / lee
Senegal v Colombia World Cup 2018, 28th June – 3.00 p.m
This is going to be some duel between these two. Basically, Senegal just to have to avoid defeat in this one to guarantee themselves a place in the next round. So that will be their target but it is going to be a thin line for them because a loss will send them home. Colombia have to come out and shoot for the victory in this one. A draw will only work for them if Japan loses against Poland and so they have to take matters into their own hands. Read our Senegal v Colombia predictions for more insights.

Senegal v Colombia Betting Tips
Senegal still have some work to do and that will simply be trying to avoid defeat against Colombia. That is the result which will get them across the line and into the round of sixteen. Senegal opened their account with a 2-1 win over Poland despite being second best for most of that match. Then they twice took the lead against Japan but were pegged back on both occasions and had to settle for a 2-2 draw. All four matches so far in Group H at the World cup have seen at least three goals and we are are backing over 2.5 goals at bet365 for 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.). Senegal have not looked all that convincing at the back at any point but they have taken their chances pretty well going forward. No player for Senegal has managed more than one goal at Russia 2018 so far and they have Sadio Mane as a 2/1 anytime goalscorer* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.).
Senegal though have scored exactly two goals in each of their last three games played (W2 D1). Senegal have posted a W2 D1 L3 record in their last six games and they do only have to dig in for a draw here. So they are probably going to go out and focus on their defence and not push forward too much unless they have to. The concern for them will be that they have only taken the one clean sheet in their last four games. In the bet365 Asian Handicap a Senegal +0.5 is at 26/25 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.) and that means that if they get a draw or a win out of the game then you will be paid out as a winner.
Colombia knows what they have to do and that is win this game as no other result gets them through to the next round under their own terms. Their World Cup campaign opened in a disappointing fashion, going down to ten men within five minutes of their opener against Japan and ending up losing 2-1. So their backs were against the wall and that meant that they had to go out and perform when they met Poland in their second fixture in Group H. They did just that as they produced one of the best performances of any team at this tournament so far, running out 3-0 winners and suddenly looking like a bit of a force to be reckoned with. Both teams to score at bet365 is at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.).
Radamel Falcao was on target in their big win over Poland and he is the 15/4 first goalscorer favourite at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 25th, 2018 at 11:43 p.m.). It is not as if Colombia put together a great qualification campaign to reach Russia Ro208 but they have lost just one of their last six now in a W3 D2 L1 record and overall have suffered just the two defeats in their last eight. So they are hard to knock over and they should be competitive in this one. Their situation against Poland brought the best out of them and the scenario is just the same for them here, they have to win and there is going to be no sitting back from them.
Senegal v Colombia Head to Head
Senegal have met Colombia twice before and both of those were international friendly games. The first meeting ended in a 2-0 win for the South Americans while they played out a draw in their most recent meeting in 2011.
Who will win – Senegal v Colombia Predictions
We were impressed by Colombia in their second match, a vast difference in performance level from that of their opener. If that is the kind of performance they can produce against Senegal then they are going to be alright and we can see them taking the win by a one-goal margin.
