Qatar and Senegal will both be looking for their first points at the 2022 World Cup when they meet on Friday afternoon.
The hosts underperformed in Sunday’s tournament opener, suffering a 2-0 defeat by Ecuador, while two late Dutch goals brought the African side down the following day.
The Qataris have been preparing for this tournament for a decade and have run out of time to make their mark on the pitch – especially with the Dutch awaiting them in their final group game next week.

Qatar vs Senegal Prediction
Whether Qatar buckled under the pressure of a decade of preparation or just reflected their level, Felix Sanchez’s side were really weak in their opener and need to be much, much better to take something from that game.
Senegal saw all their hard work undone by two late goals against the Dutch, but we can expect them to be in the lead against the hosts on Friday.
They may be without the talismanic Mané, but Aliou Cissé’s squad has more than enough offensive qualities to smash a defense that seemed totally at sea against Ecuador.
Our prediction: Qatar – Senegal 0:2 (6/1 at bet365)
