The points on offer in his Group H contest is going to be important in terms of qualification. That is because things are expected to be tight between these two and Colombia in the group. The big asset that Poland have to take into this match is a superior goal scoring threat to that of the Africans, so will that be the difference at the end of the day? The loser of this match will have an uphill struggle to fight their way back into qualification. In our Poland v Senegal predictions, it is the Europeans who look the stronger option.

Poland News and Form

There was no drama for Poland in getting to the World Cup 2018 finals as they easily won their group ahead of Denmark. They weren’t troubled along the way and that was largely because of the goals from Robert Lewandowski who was the joint top scorer in World Cup qualification. Backing Lewandowski in the first goalscorer market is a good place to start for Poland v Senegal predictions and that is an 11/4 odds option* (betting odds taken on June 15, 2018, at 9:04 PM). Poland have great support for Lewandowski through the more understated Arkadiusz Milik but between them, they will pose a big threat to Senegal defence. Poland will head to the World Cup on a three-match undefeated streak (W2 D1) and they scored a total of nine goals in those games (at least two in each).

The main Poland v Senegal prediction for this game is for it to make it above the 2.5 goals line which is a 5/4 odds at bet365* (betting odds taken on June 15, 2018 at 9:04 PM). Poland have a powerful enough attack to get that done, and they are not the greatest of defensive sides really. There is a trend for a high scoring game as seven of Poland’s last ten games have gone above the goal line. Poland showed their tournament worth at Euro 20126 where they were unluckily stopped in the quarter finals by Portugal on a penalty shootout. They look the more threatening of the two sides here and this would be a huge three points in the race to top Group H at Russia 2018 if they can deliver. Can their scoring power get them the points?

Senegal News and Form

Senegal had little trouble in their final World Cup qualification group, posting a W4 D2 record in their six matches. They are not running in bad form with just the one defeat suffered in their last thirteen played. That lone defeat was against European side Croatia in a recent friendly. But while they have not been beaten much, they haven’t won a lot as they have gone W1 D3 L1 in their last five. They have only produced four goals in their last five games as well so they don’t appear to be a major threat at the moment. There was a notable 0-0 draw against Luxembourg that they played out in their friendly internationals this year. Liverpool’s Sadio Mane is their star man but he hasn’t scored for them since early September last year, so there are other value options in the anytime goalscorer market for Senegal like Moussa Konate or Diafra Sakho to consider instead. They don’t look a big threat and both teams not to score is at 10/11 odds at bet365* (betting odds taken on June 15, 2018 at 9:04 PM).
