Colombia chasing a much-needed win

Colombia are looking for a win this time around after they had a fine result by drawing with Brazil on Sunday. Hence, the Tricolors want to keep their undefeated run of six games in a row. However, Colombia need to find a win as they have just twice in those six games. 

With a Dominating h2h record against Ecuador, coach Reinaldo Rueda’s team will hope to use that advantage for a much-needed victory. If they do so, Colombia will overtake their visitors at third place given that Uruguay also lose points in Brazil. Consequently, we see the importance of this match for Colombia.

Colombia Key Points

  • The Tricolors are undefeated in their last three home games
  • Colombia had three clean sheets in the last ten matches
  • BTTS happened in Colombia’s seven of the last ten games

Ecuador in desperate need of winning three points

Ecuador missed the 2018 World Cup finals despite winning their first four WCQ games. Thus they must be wary of facing the same fate since they triumphed in three of their first four games in this edition. Moreover, two defeats in their last three matches must raise some concerns for coach Gustavo Alfaro.

And to make things worst, Ecuador lost their last match to Venezuela who lies at the bottom of the WCQ standings. Furthermore, La Tri’s away record in the last three WCQ games consists of just three wins. Also still to play at home against Brazil and Argentina, Ecuador’s chances look really dim.

Ecuador Key Points

  • The Tricolors had three clean sheets in the last five games
  • BTTS happened in just one of Ecuador’s last five games
  • Ecuador lost all of their last three away games

Colombia vs Ecuador Prediction

A draw will be a very good result for Ecuador given the circumstances. Nonetheless, if they want to finish in top-four, Alfaro must field his best offensive team and play for the win.

As for Colombia, they lost seven points in their home games so far in the qualifiers. Although their last draw against Brazil is considered a point gained, Rueda, has no other choice to play for three points.

As we can see, this match promises to be one of the most exciting games of this round. Hence we think there will be a lot of goalmouth action and as a result, we might see goals at both ends.

To conclude, we predict both teams to score in this game. Hence and despite the bookies favoring not to see both teams scoring, we will take the chance and bet against them.
