3. Qatar vs Ecuador Betting Predictions
Moving on with our Qatar vs Ecuador preview and we come to the Qatar vs Ecuador betting prediction. Before making Qatar vs Ecuador betting tips, it is worth looking at how the teams qualified for the tournament.
Ecuador came through the tough CONMEBOL section of qualifying, finishing fourth in the group to seal automatic qualification. Ecuador finished above Peru, Colombia, Chile, and Paraguay to reach the showpiece occasion. They picked up some excellent wins over Colombia and Chile plus held both Brazil and Argentina to a draw at home. That suggests Ecuador should be able to compete with the big nations and is why they are considered the Qatar vs Ecuador favourites.
I am excited we are playing against Qatar in the opening match. I am happy Ecuador will be competing at the biggest stage of football after missing out from the last World Cup in Russia
Continuing our Qatar vs Ecuador betting guide and the hosts will be hoping to cause a shock in this tournament. Qatar have qualified for their first WC and did so automatically as the host nation. Therefore, Qatar have never achieved qualification for this event via the usual path of qualifying games, making them an unknown quantity. However, the Qatar vs Ecuador head to head shows the teams met in a friendly in 2018 and it was the former who came out on top, winning 4-3.
If Qatar are to win this game, they will have to score goals because they are likely to concede. You can get 6.50 with Bet365 for Qatar to win and both teams score but we think this is unlikely and it will be the South American team who come out on top.
