FIFA WC 2018 | SENEGAL vs COLOMBIA | FANTASY FOOTBALL | FANFIGHT

SENEGAL vs COLOMBIA: The FIFA World Cup 2018 has been an absolute roller-coaster. How much more drama has it got? The defending champions, Germany were ousted in an intense battle against South Korea letting Mexico through by the skin of its teeth. 12 teams have already made it to the round of 16. Which teams are going to complete the elite list? Senegal vs Colombia, fantasy football tips, match preview and insights are drafted here. Let’s take a look.

The story so far..

Group G has by far been the easiest groups as far as stern competition is concerned. Group H however, has been as unpredictable as the other groups have been. Senegal vs Colombia, both teams can make it through but we’ll have a look at the permutations a little later. Japan beat Colombia in the group’s opener while Senegal beat Poland 2-1. Colombia in their second fixture came out all guns blazing and registered a comfortable 3-0 victory against the Polish lads. Senegal, on the other hand, could have sealed a next round participation but were contained to a nicety by Japan. The game ended 2-2.

WHEN: 28th JUNE, 7:30 PM IST

WHERE: SAMARA ARENA, SAMARA

GROUP H PERMUTATIONS

Japan, Senegal & Colombia are all in contention to advance through to the next round but how must the results pan out? Here’s how

If Senegal & Japan win their fixtures, both teams will be tied at the top with 7 points. Goal difference has to be considered to evaluate who finishes first.

If Colombia & Poland win, Colombia will top the group with 6 points. The next place will be decided via goal difference and henceforth.

In case of a draw(both fixtures), Japan and Senegal go through where discipline(number of yellow cards) will decide the group toppers.

PLAYERS TO WATCH OUT FOR

SADIO MANE(SENEGAL) & JAMES RODRIGUEZ(COLOMBIA)

Sadio Mane since his arrival at Liverpool has been exceptional. In the 2017/18 league, Mane scored 10 and made 7 goals. His work rate has been top notch this world cup and for Senegal, he’ll be the key man. Electrifying pace, a thunderous right foot define Sane precisely and if he plays anywhere close to his best, the Colombian defence will have their work cut out.

In the World Cup – Minutes played: 180, Goals: 1, Key Passes: 4

James Rodriguez wasn’t a part of the playing 11 in Colombia’s first fixture and the lack of creativity was clearly evident. Against Poland though, James proved yet again why he’s one of the most celebrated midfielders in the world. If the Senegalese defence allows James to look up and create a pass, it’ll eventually lead to a goal. At Bayern, James created 54 goalscoring chances in 21 games, scored 6 and made 10 goals. Colombia need to win this fixture and with him in the midfield opportunities will come.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

Colombia and Senegal have faced each other only once in May 2014. The game finished in a 2-2 draw.

STAT ATTACK

James Rodriguez has been involved in 10 goals in 7 World Cup appearances for Colombia. He scored 6 in the previous World Cup and has 4 assists.

Moussa Wagué, the Senegalese defender became the first African teenager to score a World Cup goal in Senegal’s 2-2 draw against Japan. He was 19 years & 263 days old when he scored.

PREDICTION

Colombia after their victory against Poland will be looking to confirm a round of 16 berth with a victory over Senegal. The African nation beat Poland 2-1 but in Colombia, they have a much stronger unit to tackle. Colombia look more organised in both defence and attack & are the favourites to win this fixture. 2-1 Colombia my prediction for today’s game.
