Qatar vs Senegal in the second round of Group A fixtures at the 2022 World Cup is a must-win game for both teams.
Host nation Qatar will look for a more positive performance to give the home fans something to cheer for as they take on Senegal in their second World Cup group match.
Qatar fell to a 2-0 defeat to Ecuador in the tournament opener, well beaten by an Enner Valencia brace. They move on to face another similar team in Senegal, one that also fell 2-0 to the Netherlands in their first World Cup match.
Those opening matches were somewhat different, despite the identical scorelines. Without Sadio Mane, Senegal were unable to breach a Netherlands defense that stood tall and wore the African nation down across the 90 minutes. Meanwhile, Ecuador hit Qatar with the opposite, punching the hosts in the mouth early with Valencia's two first-half goals before exiting injured.
Now, it will be up to manager Felix Sanchez to engineer a turnaround and see Qatar push Senegal to the brink.
