Ecuador and Senegal can both smell the knockout rounds, but with only one place up for grabs, one of these Group A teams will be left disappointed at the end of this game in the Doha heat. Will it be the African side or the South Americans that has to pack up and go home today? Here’s how to watch an Ecuador vs Senegal live stream in the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Dates: 29 November 2022
Venue: Khalifa International Stadium, Doha
Ecuador were unlucky not to take all three points when they drew with the Netherlands last Friday. Cody Gakpo scored with the European side’s only shot on target, while Ecuador hit the crossbar and had a goal disallowed for a debatable offside, but Enner Valencia’s third goal of the tournament cancelled out that early opener. As long as Ecuador don’t lose here they’ll be able to prepare for a place in the knockouts, but you can bet they won’t just be playing for a draw.
Head coach Gustavo Alfaro has made two changes to his staring line-up today, with Gruezo and Franco coming in for Porozo and Mendez, suggesting a switch to a back four.
Senegal despatched Qatar 3-1 in their previous match, with Boulaye Dia and Famara Diedhiou scoring either side of the interval. Mohammed Muntari then gave the hosts hope 12 minutes from time, but Bamba Dieng put the game beyond doubt just six minutes later. With the Netherlands likely to beat the already-eliminated hosts in the other Group A game, Senegal will need to win here to progress.
There are three changes to the Senegal side with Ndiaye, Ciss and Pape Gueye in for Diédhiou, Diatta and Nampalys Mendy.
