The last time we saw Colombia vs. Ecuador match, Ecuador surprised everyone with a 6-1 win. But after that, the teams have turned in the opposite direction. Colombia has been unbeaten in the two, drawing with Argentina 2-2 and beating Peru 3-0. This has led Colombia in a strong position for qualifying for the upcoming World Cup.
Ecuador, on the other hand, has beaten Bolivia 2-1 before losing a game to Peru 2-1 and Brazil 2-0. So, they are holding the third position in the qualifying table.
With a questionable format of Copa America this year, there are still expectations of some cagey games.
Four teams out of each pool of five will qualify for the quarter-finals. The low-scoring encounters are most likely to happen, as teams make sure they avoid the last spot. But this pair has only one way of playing.
Ecuador’s past six games generated more than 2.5 goals. Gustavo Alvaro’s men smashed 16 goals across all those fixtures. Six of the goals were against Colombia in the qualifying match for the World Cup last November.
However, they have come into this tie after back-to-back defeats against Peru 1-2 and Brazil 2-0. But after seeing their match with Peru, there is still some hope for curbing our enthusiasm to back Ecuador for the upcoming match.
With their previous results, Ecuador’s run of matches extended without getting a clean sheet to 8. With more than 2.5 goals, both teams are likely to have similar score rates. The best bet for this match is Colombia conceding at least two times in four of the last five starts. Meanwhile, they’ll also manage eight goals during that spell.
It must be a great cracker for neutrals. With things seeming to be closer this time, we predict a 2-2 correct score.
The match is going to be pretty exciting, and we will bring all the updates to the fans.
