The Netherlands have started the FIFA World Cup 2022 on a positive note and have an opportunity to make it two wins from two games when they face Ecuador. The contest on Friday will be an intriguing battle due to various reasons. Even though the Europeans are the favourites due to their squad quality, depth and form, Ecuador will not be a pushover for any side. Their impressive performance in the opener against Qatar demonstrated it. Besides, they are an opponent the Netherlands have not faced much in the past, thereby making it difficult for them to understand what to expect from the South American nation.

It is safe to say that the Netherlands are one of the most in-form teams participating in the World Cup. They had an excellent Nations League outing when they topped League A Group 4 with 16 points from six matches. They followed that form into the opener against Senegal, beating them 2-0. Ecuador had also won their opener by the same margin against host nation Qatar. However, their form prior to the World Cup has been worrying. They finished fourth in the World Cup qualifiers with 26 points from 18 games and did not win any of their last four matches.
