FIFA World Cup :Qatar vs Ecuador Predictions
Qatar will face Ecuador in the opening match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Group A at Arbeit Stadium on 20 November. Ecuador will be back in his FIFA World Cup final for the first time in eight years, and Qatar will compete on the biggest international stage for the first time ever.
Qatar, the host country and the only debuting country among 32 participants, has spent 12 years preparing for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Felix Sanchez Bass led Qatar to the historic milestone of winning the 2019 Asian Cup. He previously claimed that trying to lead to catch up would be “suicide” for Qatar. Teams try to play defensively compact games, create as few chances as possible, and be good at switching.
Defender Byron Castillo was not included in Ecuador’s 26-man World Cup roster, although he was recognized as an Ecuadorian citizen by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Ecuador has been cleared for participation in the 2022 FIFA World Cup after Chile’s claim that Castillo was ineligible to play during qualifying was dismissed by CAS earlier this month.
All three previous meetings between Qatar and Ecuador have taken place in the Middle Eastern country itself. Qatar’s and Ecuador’s head-to-head records were 1 win and 1 draw respectively. In a friendly in October 2018, Qatar won him 4–3.
Qatar have promising players such as goalkeeper Saad Al Seeb, forward Hassan Al Haydos and forward Almoez Ali. Ecuador, on the other hand, has players like Pervis Estopinán (left back), Moises Caicedo (midfielder) and Ener Valencia (forward).
Date Time and Venue
The 2022 FIFA World Cup match between Qatar and Ecuador kicks off on 20 November. Group A’s opener kicks off at 21:30 (India time) at the 60,000-seat Arbeit Stadium, 40 kilometers north of Doha.
The Qatar vs Ecuador match will be broadcast live on India’s Sports18 and Sports18 HD TV channels, and Jio Cinema’s app and website both offer free live streams of the event. Some reports suggest the game will also be livestreamed on Voot.
A total of 17 goals, or 4.25 goals per match, were scored in the final four games of the FIFA World Cup opening match. With an aggregate score of 9-0, Qatar have won all their last three matches at the Arbait Stadium. However, Ecuador has won four of his last 10 FIFA World Cup games, and the final group game of 2014, against France, ended in a goalless draw.
On November 20th, Qatar will find it difficult to keep up with the South American teams. Ecuador, whose final score is 3-0 in his favor, is a prime contender to start the tournament with a convincing win.
