Likely lineups

The second day of the World Cup in Qatar will open at 2 p.m. Italian time for the national teams in Group A: the match between hosts Qatar and Senegal will be played at Thumama Stadium in Doha.

Both sides emerged defeated from their debut match, with Felix Sanchez Bas’s men being outplayed 2-0 by Ecuador and the Lions of the Teranga succumbing to the Netherlands by the same score.

Qatar’s technical commissioner could change something from the match they lost to the South Americans: a switch to a four-man defensive line is likely. The African team, on the other hand, will take the field according to the standard formation, already seen in the defeat against Van Gaal’s men.

Probable formations

QATAR (4-4-2): Al Sheeb; Pedro, Bassam, Khoukhi, A. Hassan; A. Aziz, Alhaydos, Karim, Homam; Afif, Asad. Ct. Sanchez Bas

SENEGAL (4-3-3): E. Mendy; Sabaly, Koulibaly, Cissé, Jakobs; P. Sarr, N. Mendy, I. Gueye; I. Sarr, Dia, Diatta. Ct. Cissé.
