Senegal’s job is already complete in African World Cup qualification, as their place at the top of the group has been assured. However, they will be looking to maintain their strong momentum with two final wins to round off Group H.
World Cup Qualifier Preview
Senegal have been the standout team in World Cup qualification to this point, and are likely a nation that many will be hopeful of avoiding in the playoffs. They have dominated in Group H, as they have a 100% record from the four games that they have played.
Senegal have been dominant at both ends of the field in the group, as they have scored 12 times and have allowed just three. They have rarely looked under pressure in the group to this point, and have assured top-spot with two gams left to play. Senegal confirmed their spot in the next round of qualification with a 3-1 victory on the road against Namibia. Famara Diedhiou was the star in that game in the previous international break, as he scored a stunning hat-trick to claim victory for his national team.
Togo would have been slightly disappointed in qualification that they haven’t pushed Senegal to the final rounds of fixtures. They have managed just four points from the games that they have played, and could yet finish bottom of the group depending on how they get on in the final couple of games that they have to play.

They should at least have a bit of confidence coming into this game, as they have taken all four points from their last two games in the previous international break. A first win finally arrived in their last outing, as they beat Congo 2-1. Ahoueke Steeve Kevin Denkey scored the late winner to claim the three points. Euloge Piacca had put Togo ahead in the first half.
Togo vs Senegal Head to Head
Togo have failed to win their last two against Senegal, with their last victory in this fixture coming in 2004. The previous meeting came earlier in the qualification campaign, with Senegal winning 2-0. However, that was their first win against Togo since 1995.
Togo vs Senegal Prediction
Senegal have been excellent throughout qualification to this point, and it’s hard to see them dropping points in their last two games. Therefore, we expect the travelling side to pick up the win this week.
