The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing with more action slated for Tuesday, Nov. 29. One of the more interesting matches of the day is a Group A meeting between Ecuador and Senegal.

After opening the tournament with a win, Ecuador battled hard to a 1-1 draw with the Netherlands on Friday. Meanwhile, Senegal achieved its first 2022 World Cup win yesterday as well, soaring to victory with a 3-1 win over Qatar.

Can Ecuador be victorious to stay at the top of Group A? Or will Senegal dig down deep to win its second of back-to-back matches?

Ecuador vs Senegal Prediction & Pick

Ecuador's tournament-opening win over Qatar was somewhat of an anomaly. After all, Ecuador has picked up draws in five of its last seven matches. On the other hand, Senegal has been victorious in three of its last six outings.

Nevertheless, Ecuador's play against the Netherlands was impressive, to say the least. Holding the Dutch to a 1-1 draw is no easy task, nor was the fact that the Ecuadorians limited the opposition to just two shots (one on goal) throughout the contest. Considering how Senegal lost 2-0 to the Netherlands, there's definitely a reason to like Ecuador here.

Back Ecuador coming out on top of another close encounter.

Final Score Prediction: Ecuador: 1 | Senegal: 0

Ecuador vs Senegal Best Bet

I have a tough time seeing over 2.5 goals in this match. Neither country is an offensive powerhouse, so I don't see many goals being scored. Besides, Ecuador's last five matches have seen two or fewer goals scored while Senegal has missed the mark in four of its last five outings.

Bet: Under 2.5 Goals (-170)
