AS Douanes Dakar vs ASC Linguere: Preview and Prediction

ASC Linguere have taken just one point from their last three Senegal. Premier League matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. ASC Linguere are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions AS Douanes Dakar should prove no easy feat either – ASC Linguere haven’t won against any Senegal. Premier League leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

AS Douanes Dakar have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. AS Douanes Dakar dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Senegal. Premier League’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

AS Douanes Dakar are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about AS Douanes Dakar and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in AS Douanes Dakar’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, ASC Linguere are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when ASC Linguere took a point away from AS Douanes Dakar (1-1 draw).

Notably, AS Douanes Dakar’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. AS Douanes Dakar have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Senegal. Premier League away matches, including against some much weaker teams than ASC Linguere, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to ASC Linguere getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though ASC Linguere are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), AS Douanes Dakar hold the best away record in the Senegal. Premier League (W8 D2 L1). ASC Linguere’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with AS Douanes Dakar’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the AS Douanes Dakarns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 AS Douanes Dakar win at 15/2 with bet365.
