Tuesday's match between Ecuador and Senegal at the Khalifa International Stadium offers both teams the potential to advance into the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Both sides are in control of their fate. Any team that wins advances to the following round. Only a draw would be necessary for Ecuador to guarantee their advancement to the next round.
To eliminate the Netherlands' goal advantage, Senegal might need Qatar to upset the Netherlands.
Ecuador defeated Qatar 2-0 to kick off the World Cup. Ecuador came from behind to draw 1-1 with the Netherlands on matchday two of Group A, securing their place in the next round.
On the first day of the group stage, Senegal was defeated 2-0 by the Dutch.
The Lions of Teranga lacked the offensive firepower necessary to score the necessary goals to win the match.
Following the loss, Senegal defeated Qatar easily, 3-1, setting up their matchup with Ecuador on Tuesday.
Ecuador's record for the year is 3W-8D-1L, which is good. The biggest problem for La Tri in 2022 has been their inability to convert draws into victories.
A draw on Tuesday, though, would advance Ecuador to the next round.
This year, La Tri's defence has been outstanding. In their 12 games in 2022, there were fewer than 2.5 goals scored in 11 of them.
The only game between Ecuador and Paraguay that had more than 2.5 goals was a 3-1 defeat. La Tri only suffered a loss once.
Only once before, in the FIFA World Cup of 2022, did Ecuador make it to the championship match.
Ecuador's best World Cup performance was a 16th-place finish in 2006 in Germany.
The current champion of the Africa Cup of Nations is Senegal. Despite being at the World Cup without their top player, Sadio Mane, they played well in 2022. Mane was unable to compete because of a leg ailment before the competition.
In 2022, the Lions of Teranga will have a 9W, 6D, and 3L record. Despite their strong recent performance, the team's World Cup run could come to an end on Tuesday.
Enner Valencia of Ecuador and Kylian Mbappe are tied for the World Cup scoring lead with three goals each after two games.
Enner will try to beat Senegal in an improbable attempt to win the Golden Boot.
