On Tuesday evening, Togo and Senegal go head-to-head in Group B of African qualifying for World Cup 2026.Togo form guide
The home team are unbeaten in five international matches after a 1-1 draw with Sudan in their opening game in qualifying. The game ended a relatively prolific run for Togo, as they had scored at least two goals in their previous three matches.
The draw in Sudan also means that Togo are unbeaten in their last five World Cup qualifiers. Their recent qualifiers have been tight and low-scoring affairs, with under 2.5 goals scored in seven of their previous eight games in qualifying.
Togo has been unable to find any consistency on home soil in recent qualifiers, as they have won just once in their previous five games on home soil. Like their general qualifying games, their recent home qualifiers have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last five outings.Senegal form guide
The Lions of Teranga have been tough to beat lately, as they have lost just one of the previous 12 matches. They opened their Group B campaign with a comfortable 4-0 win over South Sudan.
The game was a rare high-scoring one for Senegal, as five of their previous seven matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
The visitors have a relatively inconsistent recent record in World Cup qualifiers, although they have lost just once in their last 18 games in qualifying.
Senegal has lost just one of their previous eight away games in qualifying, too, as a 1-0 defeat in Egypt in their last away qualifier ended a seven-game unbeaten run on their travels.What am I backing?
I can see this being a tight and relatively even game. I am not expecting an avalanche of goals, the bet I am backing is under 2.5 goals.
