The first group in the Qatar 2022 World Cup is Group A. It features Qatar, Ecuador, the Netherlands and Senegal. In the final fixture of the group, South American side Ecuador face the Afcon winners, Senegal. In this Ecuador v Senegal betting preview, we look at the betting lines and chances that both teams have of winning.

Ecuador Aiming to Qualify for the Knockout Stages

In the first fixture of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, Ecuador beat the host nation 2-0 courtesy of two Enner Valencia goals. The Ecuadorian skipper is looking to finish Group A with a win against Senegal, all-but insuring qualification for the South American side. Ecuador qualified for the World Cup in fourth place. Can they beat Senegal in the final fixture of Group A?

Afcon Winners Senegal Without Mané

Senegal are one of the favourites to qualify for the knockout stages of the World Cup. They are without their star player, Bayern Munich’s Sadio Mané. The ‘Lions of Teranga’ had lost their first match of the World Cup, 2-0 to the Netherlands.

The Senegal national football team will count their stars lucky to qualify for the event. They will have to get a result in their fixture against Ecuador. The team still feature a variety of superstars such as Édouard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly and Idrissa Gueye. However, they will have a tough time qualifying as Ecuador are a force to be reckoned with.

Ecuador v Senegal Betting Preview: All Betting Lines

According to online sportsbook sites in Qatar, Senegal are slight favourites to win the fixture with odds 2.61. However, it would be unwise to write Ecuador off, as their odds are only slightly higher at 2.78. A likely result of a draw would pay 3.2 times your stake. All of these odds are provided by 22Bet.

The two nations have never faced each other before. The 2022 Qatar World Cup will be a first for both sides. If you are predicting both teams to score, the odds are 1.95. However, a bet on both teams not to score is quite close at 1.81. Thus, if you believe the bookies, it is more likely that both teams will not score, rather than score.

One of the safer bets would be to wager on the number of goals scored. That way, you do not have to guess which national side would come out on top. One wager that could end up paying out is for over 1.5 goals in the match. That pays 1.41 times your money. Furthermore, the odds of over 2.5 goals in the match are 2.3 whilst the odds of under 2.5 are 1.61.

The Bottom Line

To conclude this Ecuador v Senegal betting preview, we would rather back the South American side to win or come out with a draw. The odds of Ecuador to win or the match to end in a draw are 1.49. This pays rather decently and could end up paying out. After all, the South American side will likely only need a draw to qualify and Senegal look depleted without Sadio Mané.
