Ecuador vs Senegal: an Even Matchup on Paper
The road to World Cup 2022 was far from easy for Ecuador. They lost 6 games out of 18 played, while winning 7 and drawing a total of 5 times. Their top performers were Michael Estrada (6 conversions) and Moises Caicedo (4 assists). Senegal did lead their qualifying group with 6 wins and 1 draw. Famara Diedhiou and Bayern Munich superstar, Sadio Mane, were their top scorers.
Ecuador vs Senegal Final Score Prediction
Most bookmakers see this as an even matchup that could end up in a draw. At CXSports, we agree with that assessment although we do believe that Senegal has more offensive firepower at its disposal, with several potential tie-breakers on Aliou Cissé‘s side, including African wunderkind, Sadio Mane. Considering that this group also includes the Netherlands, both sides will need a win in this game in the hopes of moving forward in the tournament.
Our Ecuador vs Senegal score prediction is a repeat of the 2005 friendly game between the two teams: 1-2 in favor of Senegal, with Mane to score.
