The Dutch are also expected to defeat the previously eliminated Qatar. So… What you need to know about this one is stated below. The current form of Ecuador Ecuador may advance to the World Cup knockout rounds with just a draw against Senegal, but they’d advance in style if they win. ‘La Tri’ can benefit from their opponents needing a win to progress because they have played well in their first two games. Enner Valencia scored both goals as Ecuador easily defeated hosts Qatar 2-0 in the tournament opener. They were anticipating considerably tougher competition from the Netherlands and were behind after just six minutes thanks to a brilliant strike from Cody Gakpo. However, early in the second half, captain Valencia capitalized on a rebound to score his third goal of the competition and give ‘La Tri’ a 1-1 draw. Ecuador did, in fact, put in a barnstorming performance, and they were unfortunate to leave with just a point. On the stroke of halftime, the South Americans had a goal ruled out, and just before the hour mark, they also hit the crossbar. Valencia’s ongoing recovery from the injury he sustained against Qatar on the first night of the tournament took a bad turn when he was taken off the field for the Netherlands game on a stretcher, only to be spotted wandering around after the game was over. Valencia is reportedly fine to play against Senegal, and with so much at stake, don’t be surprised if the seasoned striker forces himself onto the field. The current form of Senegal After falling to the Dutch 2-0, Senegal defeated Qatar 3-1 in their subsequent match. The ‘Lions of Teranga’ took the lead at the break thanks to a goal from Boulaye Dia in the 41st minute, and an insurance goal from former Bristol City striker, Famara Diédhiou, shortly after. In a belated display of spirit, Mohammed Muntari’s thunderous header gave the home crowd some hope, but Bamba Dieng stroked home Senegal’s game-winning third goal in the waning moments. Ismaïla Sarr of Watford and Idrissa Gueye of Everton were both also close for Senegal. The team of Aliou Cissé has demonstrated its ability to remain composed in key contests by overcoming Egypt on penalties to earn a qualification, a rematch of the Africa Cup of Nations final. Édouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly of Chelsea are also important players. We remind you that Sadio Mané, their all-time leading scorer, is out injured all this time. And yes, Senegal, is also bolstered by the return of defender Abdou Diallo, and their fans have no worries going into this crucial match. Head-to-head encounters Ecuador and Senegal squared off only once throughout history. It was exactly 20 years ago when Africans triumphed 1-0 in a friendly.
Senegal must pursue this. The African champions will be eliminated if the Netherlands beats Qatar (and they’ll undoubtedly get three points). When playing against Ecuador, a team that has also tried its best to play positively this winter, that gung-ho attitude ought to produce an entertaining performance. The South Americans should strive to exert pressure on their opponents as well since standing still and allowing Senegal to press may be disastrous. Even though there may not be much in it, Senegal’s all-out assault might end up costing them. Hence, both teams to score at odds of 1.95 on bwin is something to wager on if you ask us.
