Double chance: Cape Verde or draw

Senegal might be the highest ranked African side in the FIFA rankings but they won't have it all their own way against Cape Verde that are unbeaten in four. Within that four game stretch is a win over Cameroon whilst they've avoided defeat against Ivory Coast not so long ago too. That's the strengths Cape Verde can bring to a game of football. The strength of Senegal, who are unbeaten in five with three wins and two draws, needs to be considered as well. They are a decent outfit but the two draws we mentioned came against sides that you'd classify as weaker than Cape Verde. You can place this bet knowing it carries some value.

Both teams to score: No

If the first prediction is a slightly longer shot then this one is more of a safe wager. In three of Senegal's last five games at least one side has failed to score with the The Lions keeping a clean sheet in each of the three. Cape Verde have also seen three of five end with a nil in the final result; again, they have recorded a shutout in each of the three matches albeit failing to score in two as well. Finally, you have the head to head record, which shows that the last three meetings between Senegal and Cape Verde have only seen one team amongst the goals.

Over/under goals: Over 2.5

Our previous prediction has detailed why we think someone will fail to score and now we look at why the match will likely come up short of the 2.5 mark. In Senegal's last five home matches only one of them has seen three goals whilst Cape Verde's away from throws up the same stat. The goal averages in those periods are clear cut too; Senegal's matches served up a total of 10 goals I.e. an average of 2.0 per match. Cape Verde's is even lower at 1.2 per game based on a total of six goals. Their last two meetings in Senegal have been under 2.5 as well.

Senegal vs Cape Verde: Previewing the teams

Senegal

Senegal are unbeaten in five and, on paper, boast the better quality players so it is little surprise that they are the bookmakers favourite. They still need to turn up with the right mentality though; players like Sadio Mane and highly rated Watford man Ismaila Sarr will be important. They have pace that would terrify any defence in the world.

Cape Verde

It's not just Senegal who are in good form. Cape Verde are unbeaten in four having won their last two and have lost just one of their last nine games. Even with that, they'll need a huge performance to stop Senegal. As you'll have seen from our predictions though it is doable. If it happens then you can bet that Stopira and Diney Borges will have good games at the back. In an attacking sense, the Cape Verde threat will come from Ryan Mendes, Lisandro Semedo and Patrick Andrade.
