Netherlands vs. Ecuador - Betting tips, predictions, and odds

Round 2 of Group A at the FIFA World Cup will close with a clash between the Netherlands and Ecuador at Khalifa International Stadium. Here you can get the best Netherlands vs. Ecuador betting tips and predictions. 

H2H, form, and stats

It’s going to be the third H2H meeting between the Netherlands and Ecuador, but the first at a big tournament. Both previous duels were friendlies; the Netherlands won the opening 1-0 in 2006, while the most recent in 2014 ended 1-1. 

The Netherlands opened this World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Senegal, and it was a rather lucky and undeserved win, from the perspective of the neutrals. Namely, Senegal was a better team until the 84th minute when Édouard Mendy made a mistake and gifted an opening goal to Cody Gakpo. Deep into the extra time, Davy Klaassen was the quickest to react to the rebound and set the final score. This win now extended the Netherlands’ unbeaten streak to 16 matches (W12, D4). 

Ecuador had an easy job against the hosts Qatar in the very first game of this year’s World Cup. Captain and top scorer Enner Valencia got a brace in the space of 15 minutes in the first half to make it 2-0 for La Tricolor, who later maintained a solid lead and had no trouble defending it. Ecuador completely neutralized confused Qatar players and didn't allow a single shot on target. Gustavo Alfaro’s men are also on a positive run of eight games without defeat (W3, D5).

Injuries and squad news

The good news for the Dutch side is that their top scorer Memphis Depay is back from an injury as he made a cameo in the second half against Senegal. He will likely take Vincent Janssen's place in the starting lineup and will play alongside Steven Bergwijn and Cody Gakpo in the attack. 

The Netherlands will get more pace and creativity with Depay on the pitch, and talking about creativity, Frenkie de Jong is a man to watch against Ecuador. Barcelona’s midfielder had an assist for the opening goal against Senegal and ran the midfield to get a Man of the Match award. 

It’s a no-brainer when it comes to Ecuador - all eyes will be on prolific forward Enner Valencia. He scored twice against Qatar, but it’s not going to be easy this time around as Valencia faces much better defenders such as Virgil van Dijk, Matthijs de Ligt, and Nathan Ake. Ecuador has a couple of solid full-backs in Angelo Preciado and Pervis Estupinan, who have the ability to go behind the lines and distribute useful crosses into the box. Preciado got an assist against Qatar. 

Netherlands vs. Ecuador Betting predictions and odds

The bookies liked what they saw from Ecuador in the opener, and offered higher odds on the Netherlands to win. The odds jumped from 1.65 to 1.78, while you can bet on Ecuador to win at 4.74. if you think the teams will split points here, a draw is at 3.52. When it comes to goals, Over 2.5 goals is at 2.11, while Under 2.5 goals can be backed at 1.72. 

Our best tip for Netherlands vs. Ecuador game

The Netherlands did keep its net intact in the last three games, but they failed to do so in six matches before that little streak. Ecuador is not a highly-scoring team; in fact, two goals against Qatar was the first time in 12 games they scored more than one goal! La Tricolor definitely has a quality to trouble the Oranje here, but the Netherlands really has a strong defense, which they proved against Senegal although they didn't impress. 

Senegal has more offensive potential than Ecuador, so we believe the favorites can record another clean sheet. However, we’re not sure about the Netherlands win, and that’s why we’re going with a combination. We don’t care who will win - we need some of the following results: 0-0, 1-0, 0-1, 2-0, and 0-2 to win our bet.
