Ecuador U20 vs Saudi Arabien U20: Preview & Prediction
Ecuador comes from a strong South American zone (became No. 2); Saudi Arabia from weaker Asia (No. 2).
Ecuador won silver at home, but could also go away: Got 6 points out of 9 in a training tournament in March. In South Korea, even.
Ecuador played best and deserved to win in the 1st round against the United States. Fortunately matched twice, including at last.
Especially Atalanta striker Cabezas was in the hop of Ecuador and scored 2. Fast and toxic.
The United States fought back by luck, fight, hard game in the midfield and good headstroke. I doubt that Saudi Arabia can do the same.
Saudi Arabia was clearly inferior to Senegal and should have lost more than 2-0. Even when the Africans lowered the pace, the sheep remained harmless.
Saudi Arabia hit strong South Korea in Asian qualification (South Koreans, however, were only involved in training); they were hardly motivated.
The Saudi goalkeeper saved the team from a major defeat against Senegal.
Ecuador is probably a lot stronger at home in the thin air of Quito (where the South American qualifying tournament was played).
The South Africans closed 3 goals against the United States. Unfortunate, yes, but worrying that they did not manage to lace the bag.
Ecuador continued to attack despite leading to the United States. Fine if it keeps the opponent back, but not if it opens to dangerous contraces.
I have not seen anything about damage (including reading an Ecuadorian newspaper), but may have overlooked something.
