In our last two picks, we are 2-0! Now we will make it 3-0 with another fantastic pick as we focus on the final match in this tight group as with a win Colombia may finish in first (same for Senegal, but I bet on Colombia to finish top, so I care more about that). We will break down everything to get your ready for this match at 10 AM Eastern Standard Time! Enjoy!
Colombia @ Senegal
Going into some of the third games, motivation is usually a worry for many gamblers, as some teams have qualified, some teams want to finish second for matchup reasons (this is why you don't bet on England vs. Belgium today), and just teams usually rotate. This is not going to be the case with this match for both teams. Columbia and Senegal both need a result to make sure they go through, and especially Colombia as they were shocked by Japan in their first game. Luckily for both teams, with Japan facing a dead Poland team (who can still be dangerous), it's not shocking to think both of these teams can go through in the group. Just thinking about this game though its hard to overlook this Colombia team, they are strong defensively, in the middle and going forward, they truly are one of the teams that can shock major teams in the knockout stages. I just think going down their attack they are too strong for a Senegal defense which usually goes too offensive, and even with Mane for Senegal I think the likes of Arias, Sanches, and Ospina can help stop a lot of their goal opportunities, this will be a great game for the neutral but Colombia will win.
Prediction 2-0 Colombia.
