Ecuador vs Senegal match will be vital to decide some crucial fates in the Group A of the FIFA World Cup 2022. Khalifa International Stadium, Al Rayyan, will host this game on Tuesday (29th November) evening.

After starting this competition with a 2-0 win against the hosts Qatar in the tournament opener, Ecuador had a 1-1 draw result against the Netherlands.

On the other hand, Senegal suffered a 2-0 defeat against the Netherlands but recorded a 3-1 victory against the hosts Qatar.   

ECU vs SEN Match Details

Match: Ecuador vs Senegal

Stage: Group (A)

Date: 29th November 2022 (Tuesday)

Time: 18:00 local time/AST (UTC+3); 20:30 IST

Venue: Khalifa International Stadium, Al Rayyan

ECU vs SEN Group A Scenarios

It is almost the must-win game for Senegal to qualify for the Round of 16, while a draw will be enough for Ecuador to secure their place in the next round.

However, Senegal can still manage to move to the knockout stages with a draw result if the Netherlands suffer a defeat against the hosts Qatar in the other match and the CAF side has the better tie-breaking criteria.  

Meanwhile, if Ecuador lose this upcoming match, they will also have to wait on the fate of the Netherlands vs Qatar match. If the Netherlands also fail to earn at least one point, then the Dutch side will have to fight against La Tri in the tie-breaking criteria. 

ECU vs SEN Match Preview

Though Ecuador won only thrice out of their 12 games in 2022, they lost only once and experienced eight draws. Except for their in-form skipper Enner Valencia, who was substituted due to injuries in both games of this tournament, La Tri have a big headache of their lack of regular goal-scoring players.

The Africa Cup of Nations 2021 champions Senegal lost only thrice in their 18 games in 2022 while winning nine games (excluding one-off game penalty shootout deciders). The Lions of Teranga are ready to put a strong message to the football world as they are desperate to continue their journey in this tournament.

It will be the second official meeting between Ecuador and Senegal. In their only previous meeting during 2010 international friendly, Ecuador won by 1-0, thanks to an own goal.  

Recent Form (starting from the latest)

Ecuador (ECU): DWDDD

Senegal (SEN): WLDWD* (the earliest drawn had a penalty shootout decider, where Senegal finally won)

ECU vs SEN Team News


In-form skipper Enner Valencia’s fitness is a big headache for Ecuador. While he was substituted due to a leg injury during the second half of the tournament opener, he was stretchered off at the late moment of the next game. There is no assurance of his availability for their vital group finale.

In the meantime, the centre-back Robert Arboleda didn’t come off the bench in both their first two games of this tournament. Also, the attacking midfielder Jeremy Sarmiento played less than the last 25 minutes (excluding added times) of both those matches.


There is no fresh injury threat in the squad.
