FIFA World Cup 2022: Ecuador vs Senegal prediction, time, live-streaming details

On November 29, Ecuador and Senegal will play their third match of the tournament. In Group A, Ecuador leads with four points while Senegal has three points and is in third place.

Overview

Ecuador played in the first match of FIFA World Cup 2022 and won comfortably 2-0. They also managed to settle for a draw in their next match against the Netherlands. While Senegal lost their first match 0-2 against the Dutch, they dominated host nation Qatar 3-1 in their second. At this point, it is a must-win match for both teams as a win would be enough for either of them to qualify for the next round.

Teams

Ecuador

Ecuador sit comfortably on top in Group A and look set to qualify for the next round. Even a draw in this match is enough for them. But, that doesn’t mean the South American team will have it easy. If they lose, they may have to play against England in the next round. Manager Gustavo Alfaro’s team prefers the likes of Iran or the USA. Alfaro received praise for his tactical skills, which allowed his team to be balanced enough to attack well and defend effectively when necessary.

Senegal

A draw might be enough for Ecuador but it might not work for Senegal as they have to rely on the result of the Netherlands vs Qatar match. In such a case, Qatar would have to beat the Netherlands with a minimum margin of three goals, which seems unlikely at the moment. The Lions of Teranga are still riding on their great form against Qatar. They want to play with the same ferocity in this match.

Head to head

Senegal have history on their side as they won the only match played between the two, an international friendly, in May 2002. Notably, Senegal lost both of their matches against South American teams in FIFA world cups while Ecuador has never faced an African country in world cups.

Key Players

Senegal’s midfield is strong, thanks to Nampalys Mendy and Idrissa Gueye. Winger Ismaila Sarr will also have a critical role to play. But, the most important player of this match is Ecuador’s Enner Valencia, who has already scored three goals in FIFA World Cup 2022.

Date, Time and Place

The Ecuador vs Senegal match will be played on November 29 at 8:30 PM (Indian time) at the Khalifa International Stadium, Al Rayyan.

Live-streaming Details

The Ecuador vs Senegal match will be telecast live on Sports18 and Sports18 HD TV channels in India and both the Jio Cinema app and website offer free live streaming of the event.

Prediction

Ecuador would win the match 3-2 and advance to the next round. This will be the end of the road for Senegal.
