The African champions' hopes of making it to the round of 16 remained alive after losing to the Netherlands in their opening game, but Ecuador's draw with the Oranje gives the South Americans the advantage at Khalifa International Stadium.
In order for Senegal to advance to the knockout stage for the first time since reaching the quarterfinals of the 2002 World Cup, they will need to win, and they must defeat South American opposition at the World Cup for the first time after losing on two prior occasions.
Seven shots have been blocked by Ecuador's defense in two games, and this is the first time they have played an African nation at a World Cup.
