Netherlands vs Ecuador Prediction, Head-To-Head, Lineup, Betting Tips, Where To Watch Live Today FIFA World Cup 2022 Match Details — November 25

The second round of group stage action gets under way at the 2022 FIFA World Cup as the Netherlands take on Ecuador in Group A. Both sides are coming off comprehensive 2-0 victories in their first games, with the Netherlands taking down Senegal and Ecuador downing hosts Qatar.

It was more elementary for Ecuador who dominated the opener and got a brace from in-form striker Enner Valencia. The Netherlands, meanwhile, were nervy against Senegal, but managed to pull out a pair of goals late courtesy of Cody Gakpo and Davy Klaasen.

With both teams tied atop the group, this match will go a long way towards not only determining which side will qualify, but also who will top the group, a vitally important distinction for obtaining a softer draw in the Round of 16.

Netherlands vs Ecuador Prediction

  • Could have an end-to-end feel with Ecuador’s running power
  • Both teams to score
  • Netherlands to pinch it late on once more
  • The motivation for the two teams here, other than a World Cup win, is that six points from two games will almost certainly take you through to the knockout stages, possibly as group winners.
  • The Netherlands will have taken confidence from their late win over Senegal and we could see something similar here, with Ecuador possessing players to cause problems throughout the game.
  • The Dutch are favourites here, but we could see another evenly matched game.
  • Netherlands to win 2-1

Netherlands vs Ecuador Betting Tips

With both sides taking a giant leap towards qualification with wins in their opening games, there won’t be quite as much of an impetus or urgency for either nation to grab a winner here. Still, nothing is decided, and topping the group will be important when looking to avoid drawing likely Group B winners England in the last 16.
