Netherlands vs Ecuador Predictions & Betting Tips (World Cup)

 by Indran |

Netherlands and Ecuador meet in this second round match in Group A of the FIFA World Cup. Both teams recorded wins in their opening matches and are joint top of the group. The winner of this match will all but be assured of winning the group or at the very least qualifying in second position while the loser will need to win their final game to qualify. The Netherland were not at their very best against Senegal and needed two late goals to clinch the win. Ecuador wrote themselves into the history books by becoming the first team to inflict defeat on the host nation in their opening match. The match will be played at the Khalifa International Stadium with the kick off at 3pm UK time.

The bookies have gone for the Netherlands as the favourite in this match with odds of 1.80 on the win while Ecuador are long shots at odds of 4.75 on the upset win. The draw is available at odds of 3.50. Both teams have proven to be miserly in defence therefore the halftime bet of under 1.5 goals at 1.33 looks very appealing.

Form Analysis

The Netherlands win over Senegal in the last match extended their unbeaten run to 16 matches which includes 12 wins and four draws. Their defence has been excellent recently, keeping clean sheets in their last three matches. Between the start of June and end of September, the Netherlands played six UEFA Nations League fixtures against Belgium, Wales and Poland. Louis Van Gaal's team travelled to Belgium for their most difficult fixture on match day one, producing one of their most notable performances for a number of years as they prevailed by a 4-1 score line. They seem to be peaking at just the right time and will be looking to for their 11th straight ticket out of the group stage in the World Cup. Ecuador have an amazing recent record with clean sheets in their last seven matches across all competitions. This is the longest such streak by the Ecuadorians this century. None of the teams they faced during this period were ranked in the top 10 therefore this will be their true test.

Squad analysis

PSV and Netherlands star Cody Gakpo broke the deadlock against Senegal to score on his World Cup tournament debut, meaning that three of his last five goals for club & country were second-half match openers. Memphis Depay is being brought along slowly by Van Gaal after recovering from injury, and could be in line for greater time on the pitch after a short cameo against Senegal. Denzel Dumfries was sufficiently fit to start that game, and should again begin at right wing-back. Ecuador fans feared the worst when Enner Valencia was forced off in the 75th minute after scoring twice against Qatar, but Gustavo Alfaro insisted after the game that there was no doubt his captain would play against the Netherlands despite an ankle sprain. The main man for Ecuador is also now their new record goal scorer. The Fenerbahce star scored twice last time out to make it five goals for him from just four tournament appearances.

Netherlands - Ecuador key points

  1. Netherlands have won eight of their last ten matches with two draws.
  2. They have scored a minimum of two goals in six of their last seven matches.
  3. Since the last World Cup, the Netherlands have only lost twice to teams ranked outside the top 20.
  4. Ecuador have failed to score in four of their last six matches.
  5. The Netherlands have scored in 16 consecutive matches.

Our Netherlands vs Ecuador prediction

These teams have met twice previously in friendlies with the Netherlands winning one and the other ending in a draw. The goals tally from the Netherlands last three matches combined with Ecuador’s last seven matches only amounts to nine goals, which is on average under a goal per match. Ecuador have failed to win in 13 of the 24 matches when they faced European opposition in the past few years. Netherlands on the other hand have enjoyed success over many fellow World Cup finalists in the past year therefore we are backing them for the win.
