Senegal, the African Giants, will compete in this tournament with the intention of bringing home the trophy and claiming victory in their second big competition of the year. The African Cup of Nations was played in February and concluded with the Lions of Teranga beating Egypt on penalties to claim victory. After claiming their first-ever regional title in February, the team led by Aliou Cisse went on to win their playoff match against Egypt and clinch their spot in the World Cup. In spite of this, Sadio Mane, the pivotal talisman who was responsible for scoring the winning penalty kick in each of those victories, will not be participating because he has been ruled out due to an injury. Senegal ought to have a positive attitude heading into this competition despite the fact that Aliou Cisse will be missing his best player for this tournament. Therefore, it is anticipated that he will field his strongest team for this particular game. Edouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly, Abdou Diallo, and Ismaila Sarr are the big-name players that are expected to be in the starting lineup for Senegal in this match.
In spite of the fact that they did not qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Netherlands, under the direction of Louis van Gaal, have qualified for the 2022 World Cup thanks to their strong winning performances. In their previous two World Cup competitions, the Oranje finished in third place and second place, respectively. The Netherlands are coming into this competition undefeated since the beginning of this year, having won six matches and drawn two in their previous competitions. The squad from the Netherlands has been tabbed as the favorite to win Group A, and as a result, they will be required to start off this competition with a victory. While they have big-name players like Virgil van Dijk, Matthijs de Ligt, Frenkie de Jong, Davy Klaassen, and Cody Gakpo who are expected to take the Oranje to their first ever World Cup win.

History of Head-to-Heads
We think that both teams will try to defend in this game. On both sides, there are great players from big European teams, and we can expect them to bring their considerable skills to this contest. Senegal won't have their best attacker, so we don't think Senegal will be much of an offensive threat. As a result, the Oranje should have no trouble defeating them. On 1xbet, bet that the Netherlands will win and that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, for which you will get the odds of 3.26.
