Any interesting facts I should know?
Colombia has kept a clean sheet in 4 of their last 6 games.
What should I be betting on?
Colombia to win well.
Colombia’s red card in their opening group game has completely changed the dynamic of this group. They are the two best teams in Group H but one of them will likely miss out. A point will be enough to get Senegal through with both teams a change of progressing if they share the points and Japan lose to Poland. We saw Colombia’s true colours in the win over Poland and the Senegalese midfield will have to be clinical if they are to avoid defeat. The Wolf believes that we will see Kouyate join Gueye in holding midfield leaving Mane and Niang to lead the counter. the impact of James Rodriguez was instant with the Bayern Munich star grabbing two assists. Falcao, Cuadrado and Quintero form a very dangerous quartet and with this much attacking talent on display, The Wolf is predicting goals aplenty. There have been 3 or more goals in 6 of Colombia’s last 7 World Cup matches while Senegal are part of a select group to have score multiple goals in each of their matches at Russia 2018. The Wolf cannot wait for this one!
