The home team are without a win in their last four matches.

Mauritania currently find themselves at the bottom of the table in the 2026 FIFA World Cup African Qualifiers. In the three matches they have played so far in Group B, the Lions of Chinguetti have collected just one draw, which came against South Sudan in the second match. In the last match, they lost to Sudan marking their second loss in three games.

Senegal are currently unbeaten in their group after three matches, collecting five points. They started the qualifying campaign with a dominant 4-0 win over South Sudan followed by a goalless draw against Togo. In the last match, they were moments away from clinching a victory. Ismaila Sarr gave them the lead, but they were denied after DR Congo equalized in the 85th minute.

Player to Watch

Sidi Amar (Mauritania)

Amar currently plays his club football in Morocco for Wydad Casablanca, where he has netted three goals in 10 appearances. Now, he has the responsibility to lead his nation at these World Cup Qualifiers

Nicolas Jackson (Senegal) 

Nicolas Jackson will be the main man for Senegal in this match after enjoying a good season with Chelsea. With Sadio Mane missing the match due to injury, Jackson will be given the responsibility to score the goals.
