Senegal vs Togo Prediction: World Cup Qualifier Match on 01.09.2021
Senegal look to be the outstanding chance of reaching the World Cup finals in Group H. They have previously reached the World Cup on two occasions, and a win on the opening day of qualification would give them the best possible chance of achieving that goal.
World Cup Qualifiers Preview
Senegal are one of the form sides on the continent coming into the qualification campaign for the Qatar World Cup. Their only defeat in their last five games came in the final of the COSAFA Cup, as they were beaten on penalties by South Africa. Senegal won three of the games that they played in that competition, with all victories in normal time coming in the group stages. They drew against Eswatini after regulation time, but eventually claimed victory on penalties. Senegal’s wins in the group stages of the COSAFA Cup came against Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, where they scored five goals in the three games. They were also beaten in one of the group stage games that they played, as Namibia won on the opening matchday 2-1. However, their form is strong coming into the qualification campaign for the World Cup.
Togo will need to put recent disappointing performances behind them as the World Cup qualification campaign gets underway. They have been beaten in two of their last three games, with those defeats coming against Kenya and Gambia. Togo’s only win during that run of games came in the form of a 2-0 success against Guinea at the beginning of June. There will still be good confidence in the group ahead of the start of the qualifiers, as they will give themselves a good chance of reaching the World Cup. However, since only the top-placed team qualifiers, they will need to avoid defeat at the very least to stand a good chance of reaching Qatar.
Senegal vs Togo Head to Head
Senegal and Togo have faced off against each other on 23 previous occasions, with Togo holding the narrow advantage having won on nine occasions. They have also won two of the previous three fixtures against Senegal, and haven’t been beaten by their rivals since April 1995.
Senegal vs Togo Prediction
Senegal have the better form coming into this fixture, but Togo’s record in recent meetings needs to be respected. Therefore, the most likely outcome in the opening group game could be a draw.
