Ecuador vs Senegal preview

Ecuador's skilful and energetic style of play has been pleasing to watch and the South Americans could easily have beaten Netherlands in their second match.

They will be confident of keep their scoring form going and will surely be afforded chances by a haphazard Senegal side.

Gustavo Alfaro's team have plenty of attacking threats and wide players such as Valladolid's Gonzalo Plata and Brighton's Pervis Estupinan have caused opponents plenty of problems.

There should be plenty of interest in backing an Ecuadorian win and in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying tournament, only Brazil scored more goals than La Tri.

Ecuador vs Senegal tips and predictions

Ecuador are offered at 13/8 (2.62) to score over 1.5 goals which seems like an excellent option, while backing them to win should also appeal.
