Senegal – Colombia World Cup Prediction
Senegal and Colombia meet at the Samara Arena in Samara in Russia for the 3rd round of Group H of the World Cup. The Group’s leaders are Japan and Senegal, both with 4 points, followed by Colombia with 3 points, and Poland with no points won and already eliminated. Senegal are motivated by their two good starts so far, but they will have to add at least one point to ensure the next round. Coach Aliou Cissé bets on his main player, striker Sadio Mané, who scored 1 goal in the competition. Gueye and Niang are other highlights of the African team. Colombia are very motivated by their 3-0 win over Poland in their last match. Coach José Pekerman bets on the speed of half-time striker Cuadrado, to win and get the classification for the next phase. James Rodriguez, Falcao Garcia and Quintero are other highlights of the South American team. The Carlos Sanchez midfielder returns after meeting suspension.

Prediction Senegal – Colombia
Senegal have a good campaign in the World Cup, but they are showing fragility in the defensive sector. Colombia made their debut when they were sent off early in the game, but soon recovered to show a great football against Poland. The game promises to be highly disputed, since a defeat, on either side, may represent an early elimination in the competition. We believe that by having a more qualified and more structured team, Colombia will win the victory and the classification for the knockout phase. Colombia wins!
