Senegal vs Togo Predictions


Togo face an uphill task as they are in poor form and have a terrible record in recent World Cup qualification matches. Senegal are formidable at home and have a superb defence led by European-based players. I am tipping a home win to nil.

Head to Head


Togo hold a 1-0 advantage against Senegal across their two previous meetings with one draw.

The sides last met in a World Cup qualifier in 2005 as the match finished 2-2.

Senegal Form


Senegal qualified for the 2021 AFCON by topping their group with four wins and two draws in six matches. The Lions of Teranga beat Zambia 3-1 and Cape Verde 2-1 in two friendly matches in June.

They finished as runners up in the COSAFA Cup help in South Africa. After losing 2-1 to Namibia, they won three consecutive matches to reach the semi-finals.

A win on penalties after a 2-2 draw against Eswatini saw them qualify to face the hosts in the final. The match ended 0-0 with Senegal losing on penalties.

Senegal Injuries & Team News


Goalkeepers: Alfred Gomis, Edouard Mendy, Seny Dieng
Defenders: Kalidou Koulibaly, Pape Abou Cisse, Abdoulaye Seck, Fode Ballo Toure, Abdou Diallo, Saliou Cisse, Ibrahima Mbaye, Cheikhou Kouyate
Midfielders: Idrissa Gueye, Pape Matar Sarr, Namphalys Mendy, Mamadou Loum Ndiaye, Moustapha Name
Attackers: Sadio Mane, Ismaila Sarr, Abdallah Sima, Boulaye Dia, Famara Diedhiou, Habib Diallo, Krepin Diatta, Sada Thioub

Senegal have their full squad available as they are not a red-listed country, meaning all UK-based players can feature. New Tottenham signing Pape Matar Sarr could start in midfield.

Coach Aliou Cisse will lean on his vastly experienced spine of Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, PSG midfielder Idrissa Gueye and Liverpool winger Sadio Mane.

Togo Form


Togo failed to qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations as they finished bottom of their group. They lost four and drew two of their six matches.

A 0-0 draw in Comoros was followed by a poor 2-1 home defeat to Kenya.

Togo played two friendlies in June as they beat Guinea 2-0 before losing 1-0 to Gambia.

Togo Injuries & Team News


Goalkeepers: Abdul Aigba, Malcolm Barkola, Wassiou Ouro Gneni
Defenders: Abdoul Halimou-Sama, Adewale Olufade, Dakonam Djene, Gustave Akueson, Kangninvi Amatchoutchoui, Klousseh Agbozo, Moussa Bilal, Youssifou Atté, Fréderic Ananou
Midfielders: Bilali Akoro, Floyd Ayite, Kossivi Amedjisso, Henritse Eninful, Mani Ougadja, Marouf Tchakei 
Forwards:  David Henen, Gilles Sunu, Ihlas Bebou, Kevin Denkey, Kodjo Laba, Serge Nyuiadzi, Placca - Fessou, Richard Nane

Teenage attacker Josué Doke scored in AFCON qualifying but has not made the squad this time around.

New coach Paulo Duarte will rely on Henritse Eninful for goalscoring threat from midfield. Kodjo Laba is the side’s key attacker with 12 goals for his country.

Verdict

Senegal are undefeated in 16 of their last 17 World Cup qualifiers and have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six matches. I am backing them to win to nil.
