World Cup 2018 | Colombia v Senegal Tips | 28th June 2018
THE World Cup continues on Thursday with action from the final group – Group H – as Colombia face Senegal. Our man Ross Casey offers his betting preview and tips.
Colombia are favourites to win here with a price of 5/6. They actually played fairly well in their opening game despite being down to 10 men after just two minutes thanks to Carlos Sanchez’s handball. However, Los Cafeteros still went on to lose that game 2-1 and the pressure was on them in their second game against Poland – but they smashed them 3-0.
Senegal have been made the underdogs here at 7/2, which is fairly big when you consider that they have lost just just two of their last 20 matches heading into this game against Colombia.
Both sides are in danger of being eliminated from the competition in a wide open group.
Senegal Double Chance
I think Colombia at 5/6 is too short a price when you consider that they were 6/5 to beat Poland last week. For that reason I think I will oppose them here and back Senegal double chance at 20/21.
Both sides are under pressure to win here, but Colombia more than Senegal and with the counter attack such a huge play for them, I fancy them to get something from this game and potentially knock Colombia out of the competition. We need them to either win or draw here for our bet to come in – something they have managed in 18 of their last 20 games!
This Colombia side have won just four of their last 13 games so I am happy to oppose them and back Senegal at 20/21 to either win or draw here.
