The Qatar national team hopes to achieve a positive result in its second match in the World Cup, in order to compete for one of the two qualifying cards from Group A, after its defeat in the first round match against Ecuador with a clean double, which is the same result that the Teranga Lions received in front of the Dutch mills.

On the other hand, the Senegal national team enters the match, hoping to achieve victory, despite the absence of its most important element, Sadio Mane, who was excluded from the tournament, due to the injury he suffered with his team, Bayern Munich, and resulted in him undergoing surgery, after which he will be absent for about 4 months, in addition to the midfielder. Sheikho Kouyate.
The Senegalese national team excels in marketing value by a wide margin from its Qatari counterpart, as the value of the Teranga Lions battalion amounts to 229.5 million euros, compared to 14.90 million euros for Al-Annabi.
The two teams meet today for the first time in history, while the Senegalese team faced a single Asian team in the World Cup in the 2018 World Cup against Japan, and the tie settled with a score of 2-2.
