Qatar vs Ecuador Preview
Because of their successful defense, the Gustavo Alfaro-coached team was able to qualify for the Qatar 2022 tournament.
It appears as though Ecuador will maintain their streak of not conceding a goal in any of their World Cup warm-up games, which currently stands at six games.
In spite of the fact that they haven’t played much football since then, Qatar’s performance in the Arab Cup last summer, in which they finished in third place, gives them hope.
As a result of the fact that their opponents in Group A are much more talented than they are, they have very little chance of winning their first World Cup game.
Even if the World Cup hosts haven’t lost their opening game since 2006, things may change at Al Bayt Stadium.

Qatar vs Ecuador Prediction
Even though it would be advantageous for Qatar to compete at their own stadium, Ecuador is still the favorite.
In recent World Cups, the host nation has been able to reap benefits.
South Korea surprised everyone in the group stage of the 2002 World Cup, which it co-hosted, and advanced all the way to the semifinals. In contrast, South Africa shocked everyone in the group stage of the 2010 World Cup, but ultimately lost to the United States on goal differential.
Bookmakers aren’t very optimistic about Qatar’s chances of taking home the trophy, if you ask them. We do not anticipate that there will be more than 2.5 goals scored in the first half
