Not only messes up Liverpools's season but a clear advantage for South Africa to advance to the World Cup. Just how influential is Mane to Senegal and does this derail their Russia 2018 hopes?

Senegal without Mane is still better than SA.

They pretty much only need 1 point from 2 matches while SA needs to win 2 in a row.

Advantage Senegal.

Senegal get to replace Sadio Mane with Diafra Sakho, Cheikh Ndoye, Mbaye Niang or Moussa Konate. And they still have Keita Balde on the other side. Not to mention Pape Souare is finally back, so they have an elite left back, which is more than Nigeria can say.

Overall Senegal is top quality (even elite) from the back to the front apart from three positions:
Forward - Moussa Sow scored 18 goals for Fenerbahce last season
Right back - Moussa Wague is 19 and is a starting right back for Eupen in Belgium
Goalkeeper - Khadim N'diaye plays in Senegal.

There is a reason Senegal is worth some 10x more on Transfermarkt than South Africa.

Everything just favours Senegal.

Even if they get just 1 point, Burkina Faso would need to trounce Cape Verde to qualify.

Based on what we know, the likelihood of SA getting two wins is very low, or the chance of SA getting 1 win and a draw, AND Burkina Faso trouncing Cape Verde.

Senegal are through.

Are you serious? Bros, you will hardly notice whether Mane is there or not. Senegal has several other stars and will do well regardless. Perhaps you are depending on EPL with little knowledge of Senegal.
