Qatar vs Ecuador match live on KBC


The first match of the 2022 World Cup has Qatar taking on Ecuador on November 20. Ecuador is a team that is not expected to advance to the tournament's knockout rounds, and this match is in Group A of the competition. Qatar is the host country.


Qatar won the right to host the 2022 World Cup, and this will be their first participation in the event. Due to the lack of qualifying games, Qatar has been playing friendly games, the most recent of which was not compliant with FIFA rules.


Qatar beat Guatemala, Honduras, Panama, and Albania in their last four friendly games.


Qatar hasn't performed as well, however, while playing friendlies against more difficult competition. Recently, they were held to a 2-2 tie by Chile and defeated 2-0 by Canada, the latter game's two goals coming in the opening 13 minutes.


Qatar has gone unbeaten 20 times in their past 23 games across all competitions. In their most recent competitive match, Qatar lost to Algeria in the semi-finals of the Arab Cup.


After a 0-0 draw, Qatar defeated Egypt on penalties to claim third-place honors. It's important to note that neither Algeria nor Egypt participated in those matches at full strength.


Trends indicate that in their past 12 games across all competitions, Qatar has gone undefeated at the half.


Ecuador placed fourth in the CONMEBOL qualifying round, securing a spot in the 2022 World Cup. Ecuador did an amazing thing when it won the last automatic qualifying spot from South America. This kept Chile and Colombia from joining the competition.


Ecuador won seven of its 18 games during World Cup qualification, including some remarkable wins against Uruguay and Chile. Ecuador was able to compete against the big guys at home by defeating both Brazil and Argentina during qualifying.

According to trends, Ecuador hasn't lost in any of their past seven games across all competitions. In those seven games, they have only managed to win twice, beating Nigeria and Capo Verde on neutral soil.


In recent friendlies, Ecuador has been tough to defeat, drawing with Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and Iraq.


Regarding upcoming team news, Qatar should have Akram Afif back from injury. Almoez Ali, a forward, is anticipated to open the game on offense.


Moisés Caicedo and Pervis Estupián of Brighton will be in Ecuador's starting lineup. Enner Valencia, an experienced striker, is anticipated to open the assault.


 

It is never simple to predict who will win the World Cup's first match, and there have been some surprises in the past. Since neither Ecuador nor Qatar are anticipated to go very far in the competition, there is no obvious favorite for this match.
