Netherlands vs Ecuador: preview
After thoroughly pooping Qatar’s party in the World Cup’s opening game, Ecuador meet the Netherlands on matchday two of Group A, with the Dutch also heading to the Khalifa International Stadium with three points to their name.
While Enner Valencia’s double gave the Ecuadorians a 2-0 win over the Qataris on Sunday, late goals by Cody Gakpo and Davy Klaasen saw the Netherlands beat Senegal by the same scoreline on Monday.
One of the Netherlands and Ecuador could qualify for the last 16 on Friday. If Qatar and Senegal draw in the day’s earlier group game, the top two will meet knowing that whoever wins will be through.
Netherlands vs Ecuador prediction
Ecuador may have strolled it against Qatar, but they’re up against opposition of an entirely different category now. The Netherlands have the wind in their sails after seeing off Senegal, and should be too good for La Tri.
Prediction: Netherlands 2-0 Ecuador
