FIFA World Cup 2022: Netherlands vs Ecuador prediction, time, live-streaming details

On November 25, the Netherlands and Ecuador will play their second match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. In the Group A match, both teams come from an identical position as they won their first matches by the same scoreline (2-0). The Netherlands beat hard-fought Senegal, while Ecuador comfortably defeated Qatar, arguably the weakest team in the tournament.

Overview

Ecuador and the Netherlands are the favorites to advance to the knockout stage. A win in this match will likely guarantee their entry into the next round. The pain of failing to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup must still be fresh for the Netherlands, who will leave no stone unturned to ensure they impress their fans as they go forward in the tournament.

Teams

Holland

Holland’s record at the FIFA World Cup is patchy. Whilst they have reached the final three times, in 1974, 1978 and 2010, and finished third in 2018; they have failed to qualify for the mega event seven times in the last 16 editions.

Ecuador

For Qatar, La Tricolor proved too organized to handle the opening match on 20 November. With matches against the Netherlands on 25 November and Senegal on 29 November, Ecuador now face two of the toughest opponents in the group. Senegal will be eager to avenge the defeat against the Dutch. The Latin American team is well aware that even a draw in this match could benefit them.

Head to head

In the two international friendlies played between the two teams in 2006 and 2014, the Oranges won one, while the other ended in a draw. The Netherlands also have a strong record against South American teams at the FIFA World Cup. They have lost just two of their last 14 matches, the last defeat coming in 1994 against Brazil.

Key players

Memphis Depay, who is recovering from an injury, has 42 international goals. The Dutch striker should start against Ecuador in place of Vincent Janssen and make the difference. Wingers Steven Bergwijn and Cody Gakpo, along with Davy Klaassen, should also impress. For Ecuador, it will be Enner Valencia, who will have to shine again just like he did against Qatar.

Date, time and place

The Netherlands vs Ecuador match will be played on November 25 at 21:30 (Indian time) at Khalifa International Stadium in Doha.

Live stream details

The Netherlands vs Ecuador match will be broadcast live on Sports18 and Sports18 HD TV channels in India and Jio Cinema app and website will both offer free live streaming of the event.

Prediction

The Netherlands vs Ecuador match will be a pleasure to watch as it will be a high scoring match. The Dutch will secure passage to the next round with a 4-2 victory.
