Qatar vs. Senegal World Cup line-up, seed 11 for Group A match at Qatar 2022

Without Sadio Mane and beaten by the Netherlands in their opening game, Senegal could use a helping of World Cup celebrations.

Fortunately, they meet hosts Qatar in the next Group A game, who looked disorganized en route to losing to Ecuador on the opening day of the tournament.

Another loss for both teams here and it would be difficult to see them through to the knockout stages.

Below are the predicted lineups for both teams ahead of this Group A game.

Qatar vs. Senegal line-up

After being wiped out by poor goalkeeping in their opening games, both teams are considering the unusual move of replacing their goalkeepers for this game.

Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy, who missed both of the Netherlands’ goals, would be the man to pay the price for Senegal. And there’s fierce competition between Alfred Gomis and Seny Dieng to be the man to replace him when that happens.

As for Qatar, they are weighing whether to drop Saad Al-Sheeb with 80 caps for Meshaal Barsham, who has a comparatively paltry 15 caps for the national team.

Qatar forecast from 11

Qatar (5-3-2, right to left): 22nd Barsham (GK) – 2nd Pedro Miguel, 16th Khoukhi, 3rd Hassan, 15th Al Rawi, 14th Ahmed – 12th Boudiaf, 6th Hatim, 10th Al-Haydos – 11th Afif, 19th Ali

  • Hurt: none
  • suspended: none

Qatar have no new injury worries going into the second group game and could therefore field a similar starting XI barring a possible goal change.

Senegal forecast from May 11

(4-3-3, from right to left): 23 S Dieng (GK) — 21 Sabaly, 12 P Cisse, 3 Koulibaly, 4 A Diallo — 13 P Gueye, 6 N Mendy, 5 I Gueye — 15 Diatta , 21. Dia, 18. I. Sarr

  • Hurt: Ballo tours (thigh)
  • suspended: none

With Fode Ballo Tours not yet resume full education, Abdou Diallo will likely continue to represent left-back for Senegal.

Cheick Kouyate needs to be replaced in midfield after being substituted against the Netherlands, and Pape Gueye could be the man who gets the nod.
