Ecuador face Senegal on Tuesday in what is likely to be a winner takes all match to progress to the second round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

With Netherlands widely-expected to beat the Netherlands and progress to the knockout stages, and Qatar already eliminated, this match is expected to produce the runner-up in Group A.

The South Americans hold a one-point advantage over their opposition going into the game, meaning a draw will be good enough for them.

Enner Valencia has been the star with all three of Ecuador’s goals so far but remains a doubt for their final group game with a knee injury picked up in the 1-1 draw with the Netherlands on Friday.

Senegal were only beaten very late by the Netherlands in their opener before picking up three points fairly comfortably against the hosts. I actually have them favourites going into this encounter in this must win match.

Watford’s Ismaila Sarr is a tricky forward with an eye for goal, whilst Boulaye Dia has been the central striker for the Lions of Teranga. Although Ecuador have only conceded once in their opening two matches I do favour the Senegalese attack in this one. And they are great value for money to pick up the three points.
