England v Senegal World Cup Betting Tips 04/12/2022
England and Senegal progressed from their respective World Cup groups to reach the round of 16, so it’s time for our England v Senegal World Cup Betting Tips 04/12/2022. The Three Lions came top of Group B after an unbeaten run in the initial World Cup stages. In group A, Senegal were also in decent form and finished second by just one point. The two sides now face off in the knockout stages in a tough encounter. This match kicks off at 7 p.m on Sunday. It will be shown live on ITV.
Form and Team News
England came through Group B without defeat. The Three Lions thrashed Iran 6-2 in their World Cup opener before a cagey 0-0 draw with the USA. But Gareth Southgate’s side confirmed their place in the knockout stages with a 3-0 win over Wales. Marcus Rashford scored twice and Phil Foden also netted in the second half. Senegal recovered from a 2-0 opening match loss against the Netherlands to qualify. The Lions of Teranga beat Qatar (3-1) and Ecuador 2-1 to progress. Ismaïla Sarr and Kalidou Koulibaly were on the scoresheet.
Regarding the team news, England defender Ben White withdrew from the squad for personal reasons. For Senegal, midfield pair Cheikhou Kouyate and Idrissa Gana Gueye are out.
Match Winner Betting Tips
Looking at the current match winner odds, there is one clear favourite in the England vs Senegal match. First, a Senegal win appears to be a long shot. The Lions of Teranga have lost two of their last four World Cup matches and VBet has the best odds for a Senegal win at 69/10. However, there is good value in a potential draw in this fixture. Senegal is unbeaten in six of their last seven in all competitions. Also, England has drawn two of their last four matches. Therefore, there is decent value on backing a draw at 3/1 offered by Betfred. But in the England vs Senegal match, we are following the bookies and backing a Three Lions win. England eventually showed their quality to defeat Iran and Wales in the group stages and they can progress with victory. SBK have the best odds for an England win at 5/9.
Under 2.5 Betting
Often, the knockout matches in any major tournament are cagey. We expect this trend to continue in the England vs Senegal match on Sunday. First, England has seen under 2.5 goals in five of their last eight World Cup matches. Senegal has also seen a lot of low scorers recently, with under 2.5 goals in five of their last seven. Due to this, we are backing an under 2.5 goals score. BetVictor has the best odds at 8/13.
Anytime Goal Scorer Bets
Although goals could be rare in the England vs Senegal clash, both sides have in-form players who can hit the net. For Senegal, Sarr got off the mark last time out and the attacker has been ever-present for his side. The winger has started every match for Senegal and scored seven goals for club and country this season. At 13/2, offered by Bet365, Sarr could be a good outside option. But following his brace in the 3-0 win over Wales, our goalscorer pick this weekend is England’s Marcus Rashford. The Man United striker has three goals from just one start in the World Cup. As a result, we are backing another Rashford goal against Senegal. At 12/5, Bet365 has decent odds for the forward to hit the net again.
After huge improvements in a strong second-half display against Wales, England will set their sights on reaching a World Cup quarter-final. However, Senegal has shown quality to get past some tough opponents in their campaign. The Three Lions face a tough test, but will Southgate’s side have enough class to progress?
