Qatar vs Senegal FIFA LIVE Football Score 25/11/2022

Qatar and Senegal have not played against each other before. Qatar suffered their first defeat in four games with their loss to Ecuador. In its last two games, Senegal has not succeeded to win either. Chelsea goalkeeper Édouard Mendy will be a key player for Senegal as the African nation would have to defend well to have a chance to get ahead. Qatar forward Hassan Al-Haydos will have to make a difference for his team.

After losing 2-0 the opening match against Ecuador, Qatar will face Senegal on Friday in the teams second match of Group A at the Al-Thumama Stadium in Doha . The African side lost as well, falling 2-0 against a strong Netherlands side but proved the be a resilient team and until Cody Gakpo’s opener they actually looked likely to be competitive in this competition. However, this match will tell us if Senegal can cope the absence of key striker Sadio Mane, who’s out injured and will miss the World Cup.

Qatar: The hosts of the competition, endured a difficult start by losing 2-0 to Ecuador. They’re rooted to the bottom of Group A ahead of Matchday 2, although joined at the hip with Senegal, who also lost 2-0 to the Netherlands. A victory against Senegal would significantly boost their chances of qualification, though the door would not be completely closed with a draw. They will be eliminated with a defeat.

Senegal: Senegal opened Qatar 2022 with a disappointing 2-0 defeat at the hands of the Netherlands. They entered the competition with high hopes, having lifted the African Cup of Nations earlier in the year. They’re missing their star player Sadio Mane but even so can boast a strong enough squad to progress to the Round of 16. Senegal are in a similar position to Qatar: they need to win their final two games to be sure of progressing to the next phase, while a draw would make qualification a challenge. If the Netherlands are able to win that match then Senegal could beat Ecuador in their final fixture and progress, even if they only pick up a point against Qatar.

Qatar, the first host nation in World Cup history to lose their opening fixture, will be keen to prevent another loss and consequently, an early exit from the competition by getting a good result against Senegal, who also lost their first game. To keep hopes of staying in the tournament alive, both sides must avoid a loss at the 40,000-capacity Al Thumama Stadium, ahead of the last Group A matches on November 29. There is a gulf between both sides on the FIFA rankings, with Senegal in 18th place, far above Qatar in 50th.

The Senegalese will look to translate this to on-the-pitch success and take advantage of the weaknesses the Ecuador team exploited in the opening game. On their part, the Teranga Lions who conceded two late goals to the Oranje due to a goalkeeping error and defensive frailty will have to step up their game.

Qatari goalkeeper Saad Al Sheeb who had a worse time in the first game than Senegal’s Edouard Mendy had in his, will have to stop an expected barrage of attempts from Senegalese attackers. Left winger Ismaila Sarr who relentlessly troubled the Dutch defence with his mazy runs, dribbling, and shooting, may particularly fancy his chances in a bid to cushion the loss of injured talisman Sadio Mane.

Mane, a two-time African Footballer of the Year, was injured while playing for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, after being expected to shoulder the expectations of the West African nation. Coach Aliou Cisse will be hoping his forwards who are present in Doha are less profligate on Friday against the Qataris who succumbed easily to Ecuador.

Ecuador and Netherlands, who both racked up convincing wins in their first game of the 2022 World Cup against Qatar and Senegal respectively, will each be hoping to pick another three points from this game. Both sides go into the game knowing that a win for either will send that team into the Round of 16, likely as top of the group. Qatar will hope to bounce back to winning ways when they host Senegal in the FIFA World Cup at the Al Thumama Stadium on Friday.

After a lacklustre show against Ecuador in the opening game, Felix Sanchez Bas will hope that his side will at least put up some resistance against the AFCON champions. With that loss, they also became the first host nation in World Cup history to lose their opening fixture. They were outplayed in every department and the reigning Asian champions did not even have a shot on target.

Meanwhile, Senegal also have a lot of catching up to do after going down against the Netherlands in their opener. Edouard Mendy had a bad day at the office which allowed the Dutch to race away with a 2-0 win. It was evident that they were missing their talisman Sadio Mane and Aliou Cisse would hope that Ismaila Sarr will start producing the goods.

On November 25, Qatar and Senegal will face each other in a Group A match. Both teams are in an identical position as they lost their first matches with an identical score (0-2). The host nation lost to Ecuador in the FIFA World Cup 2022 opening match while Senegal lost to the Netherlands.

Nobody expects Qatar and Senegal to qualify for the knockout stages. Their fans, however, will want to see their team qualify from a group that has Ecuador and the Netherlands as the favourites to move on to the next round. A victory in this match will keep the dream alive for Qatar and Senegal. Neither of the teams, however, would qualify if the Ecuador vs Netherlands match ends in a draw.

Going into this crucial encounter, Senegal appear to be in considerably better form than their Asian opponents. Even if the African team ultimately lost 2-0, they made things difficult for the Netherlands. They must, however, be worried since Abdou Diallo and Cheikhou Kouyate left that game with injuries and might not make this encounter.

Nobody expects Qatar and Senegal to qualify for the knockout stages. Their fans, however, will want to see their team qualify from a group that has Ecuador and the Netherlands as the favourites to move on to the next round. A victory in this match will keep the dream alive for Qatar and Senegal. Neither of the teams, however, would qualify if the Ecuador vs Netherlands match ends in a draw.
