Analysis:

Netherlands and Ecuador will meet at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha for their second match in this FIFA World Cup group stage.

Netherlands

The Netherlands ranks eighth in the world, with outstanding overall strength. The team heads into this round from a 2-0 victory over Senegal in their opening match. Cody Gakpo break through the net in the 84th minute, then Klaassen D. added a second goal in the stoppage time. Netherlands are temporarily leading the group, and they will promote as long as take another three points from Ecuador.

Ecuador

Ecuador are coming off a comfortable 2-0 over Qatar in the first round of this competition. Ecuador secured their place in the final by finishing fourth in the South American qualifiers with 26 points from 18 matches. And they only only lost one of their last seven matches in the qualifiers, including drawing Brazil and Argentina with 1-1.

Prediction:

Ecuador wants to extend their nice defensive run into this match, while Netherlands also kept three clean sheets lately. I will back the win for the Dutch and a low-scoring clash here.

Pick: Netherlands to win

O/U Pick: Under 2.5 goals
