Ecuador vs Senegal Betting Preview and Prediction

Angelos Anastassopoulos November 28, 2022

It all comes down to this one. This Ecuador vs Senegal match will determine who gets through to the knockout stage of the World Cup. There is a scenario where they both qualify, but it involves the Netherlands losing to Qatar, which seems unlikely, to say the least. Ecuador has the luxury of playing for two results, as a draw will see them through.

Ecuador World Cup

The World Cup started with an Ecuador win over Qatar, thanks to two goals by Enner Valencia. The dream continued as the team’s skipper scored another goal, this time against the Netherlands, to earn Ecuador a draw. Unfortunately, the Fenerbahce striker was substituted after picking up a knock for the second match in a row. This time it seems more serious. It is extremely doubtful that he will be ready for the crucial Ecuador vs Senegal tie but if his team does move on to the knockouts, then he might be able to help.

In his absence, Jeremy Sarmiento will most probably be introduced in the starting XI as a winger, while Michael Estrada will take the centre-forward spot.

The rest of the lineup will most likely remain the same. After all we are talking about the team that managed to get an incredible result versus a Netherlands squad that was (and still is) among the favourites to win the World Cup.

Senegal team news

Senegal knows that only a win will see them through to the next round of the World Cup. There is a scenario where a draw might be enough, but it is more of a science fiction script than an actual possibility. For Senegal to qualify with a draw, eliminated Qatar must beat the Netherlands by two goals or more.

Aliou Cisse’s men started off the tournament will a loss to the Netherlands. To be fair, the Senegalese played better than their opponents, but couldn’t put the ball in the net, which they paid late in the game. Against a weak Qatar team, Senegal’s offensive weapons worked and they got the 3-1 win.

Talking of offensive weapons, we cannot emphasise enough how important Sadio Mane’s absence is for the African Champions. The team’s top scorer and most charismatic player travelled to Qatar but it is highly unlikely that he will be able to play, no matter how far Senegal gets.
