It's clear from these Mauritania vs Senegal odds that the guests are the expected winners in this game, although we probably expected that to be more pronounced.

After all, Senegal are in great form with just one loss in their last 10 games, which came after penalties against Ivory Coast at AFCON. Meanwhile, Mauritania are without a win in their last four matches and are generally not close to Senegal's quality.

Mauritania preview: Can they put up a fight?

With two losses and one draw in the first three matches in the WC qualifiers, Mauritania are currently in the last place in the group standings. Their chances to reach the next stage were always slim, but after this poor start, it seems that Mauritania's hopes are already over. Of course, any good result they can get, their fans will take with joy.

Predicted lineup: Niasse (GK), Abd, Yali, Ba, Diaw, Mouhsine, Fofana, Mahmoud, Kamara, Amar, Koita

Senegal preview: Can they push forward without Mane?

After a draw with DR Congo in the last round, Saido Mane's absence was clearly felt. However, Senegal are a good team even without him and Mauritania are far from the quality of DR Congo, so Senegal should be able to pull off a win on Sunday to stay in the race for the top spot in the group. Currently, Senegal are second in the standings, two points behind Sudan.

Predicted lineup: Mendy (GK), Seck, Koulibaly, Niakhate, I. Sarr, Gueye, P. Sarr, Diarra, Diallo, Jackson, Ndiaye

Player to watch: Nicolas Jackson

With 14 goals in his first season in the Premier League, the young forward met the expectations, especially since he needed a bit of time to adjust to his new life at Chelsea.

Jackson hoping to help Senegal to the top of the group

While Jackson' s international career is still at the beginning since he only appeared in 14 games for Senegal so far, he is still without a goal in Senegal's jersey. Will we see him score his first international goal against Mauritania?
