Qatar face off against Senegal at Al Thumama Stadium in round two of the World Cup. The exciting encounter kicks off on Friday.

Qatar sit as number four with zero points following their opening group match, with Senegal having zero points as number three. According to Fifa Qatar look into their fixture with Senegal as number 50 in the world ranking. The visitors sit as number 18.

Seeing Qatar last beyond the group stage at the World Cup would probably be a surprise to even themselves. It looks like even a point in the three group matches would be an achievement.

It has the look of a close battle to get through the group but with their qualifying campaign in mind Senegal could pose a threat to most opponents.
