Qatar vs Ecuador: Dream11 Prediction, Captain & Vice-Captain, Preview, H2H, Odds, Probable11, Team News and other details- FIFA World Cup 2022

For the 1st time, Qatar competes on the biggest international stage, while the South American nation returns to the World Cup finals after an eight-year absence.

The first match of the highly contentious 2022 World Cup takes place on Sunday afternoon at the Al Bayt Stadium when hosts Qatar vs Ecuador in Group A. For the first time in their history, Felix Sanchez Bas’ Qatar competes on the biggest international stage, while the South American nation returns to the World Cup finals after an eight-year absence.

Qatar – Qatar remains an unknown quantity, having played little competitive football recently, though their third-place finish at the Arab Cup last summer will give them confidence that they can compete. Nonetheless, the quality of opponents they are likely to face in Group A is set to be significantly higher. But Qatar has grown in stature over the last decade and will be looking to cause some upsets. The hosts earned a 2-2 draw against Chile in September of this year and will face a formidable opponent on Sunday. 

Ecuador – Gustavo Alfaro’s team proved to be difficult to beat in qualifying for Qatar 2022, and they have been rock-solid defensively in preparation for the tournament. Ecuador has kept six consecutive clean sheets in the six pre-World Cup friendlies, and they are likely to keep things tight at the back once more. Last week, the South American team was held to a 0-0 draw by Iraq, and they cannot afford to drop points in this match.

Almoez Ali: 

The nation’s hopes will be primarily placed on the shoulders of star forward. He is Qatar’s third-highest goal scorer, and his performance could determine the outcome of the first game.

Enner Valencia:

He has 13 goals in 12 Super Lig games this season for Fenerbahce. Given his rich form, he should be the difference maker in this tie.
