Why you should back Ecuador
Ecuador are led by a huge weapon in Enner Valencia. The 33-year-old forward converted both a penalty and a header into goals in Qatar. Valencia also scored in the match against the Netherlands, and he became the first player to score three goals in the 2022 World Cup.
Valencia has 13 goals in 12 matches for Fenerbache in the Turkish Super Lig this season, and he is an international standout with 33 goals in 68 career appearances for the national team. Ecuador also played quite well against the Netherlands overall, and the defense is elite. Ecuador are stout in allowing only one goal since March 29, with seven clean sheets in the last eight matches.
Why you should back Senegal
Senegal are the 2022 AFC champions and playing well in recent days. Senegal dropped the tournament opener to the Netherlands, but out-shot their opponent in that setting by a 15-10 margin, including more shots on target and 46% of possession. Senegal then put up three goals against Qatar, with Boulaye Dia scoring in the 41st minute, Famara Diedhiou scoring in the 48th minute, and Bamba Dieng scoring in the 84th minute.
Senegal are talented from an attacking standpoint, and the club also has an elite goalkeeper in Edouard Mendy. Mendy stars for Chelsea at the club level, leading Chelsea to a Champions League title and a Super Cup title in 2021. He was named the Best FIFA Men's Goalkeeper for 2021.
