Interestingly enough, the World Cup odds aren’t favoring Poland all that heavily. This is surprising, since most World Cup bettors are anticipating a Polish triumph in this matchup. There’s no surprises as how Poland will be trying to win this game, judging by their current roster. Ultimately bettors can expect the Polish to place an emphasis on their offense, with the likes of Lewandowski leading the charge. The below listed betting trends make it clear that Senegal has a dominant defense. We’ll have to see how effectively Poland is at cracking that African defense.
Players to Watch: Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich), Wojciech Szczesny (Juventus), and Arkadiusz Milik (Napoli).
Back in 2002, Bruno Metsu managed to lead Senegal to a quarterfinals appearance. This time around, Senegal will turn to Aliou Cisse to lead them into battle. As a matter of fact, Cisse is the only African manager entering this year’s World Cup. This opens the door for other African trainers to find success on such a platform. Granted, that hinges on Cisse’s ability to led Senegal out of the group stage. All in all Senegal enters with a talented team that sports the likes of Sadio Mane. However, they’ll need some good coaching if they are to usurp Poland’s own talent.
Players to Watch: Sadio Mane (Liverpool), Kalidou Koulibaly (Napoli), and Keita Balde Diao (Monaco).
