Ecuador vs Senegal lineups
Ecuador had a major injury doubt over captain and talisman Enner Valencia with the veteran striker forced off in both of their games in Qatar.
But he has been passed fit to start against Senegal.
Gustavo Alfaro has made two changes, with Alan Franco and Carlos Gruezo coming into the side alongside Moises Caicedo in midfield, replacing Jackson Porozo and the suspended Jhegson Sebastian Mendez.
Ecuador confirmed starting lineup (4-3-3, right to left): 1. Galindez (GK) — 17. Preciado, 2. F. Torres, 3. Hincapie, 7. Estupinan — 21. Franco, 8. Gruezo, 23. Caicedo — 19. Plata, 11. Estrada, 13. Valencia.
Senegal head coach Aliou Cisse is still without Cheikhou Kouyate through injury, but Abdou Diallo came through unscathed against Qatar.
Pape Gueye, Pathe Ciss and Iliman Ndiaye come into the side, with Nampalys Mendy, Krepin Diatta and Famara Diedhiou dropping out.
Senegal confirmed starting lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): 16. E. Mendy (GK) — 21. Sabaly, 3. Koulibaly, 14. Jakobs, 22. Diallo — 26. P Gueye, 5. I. Gueye — 11. P Ciss, 18. I. Sarr, 13. Ndiaye — 9. Dia
Ecuador vs Senegal odds
This match will decide Ecuador and Senegal’s respective last-16 fates with the former holding the edge, leading the defending Africa Cup of Nations champions by a point.
A draw would put Ecuador through to the knockout stages with Senegal needing to secure a second win in a row to squeeze them out. This one is too close to call a winner.
