Ecuador vs Peru prediction for Thursday’s Copa America 2021 clash at  Estádio Olímpico Pedro Ludovico in Goiania. Ecuador who has one point from two matches will face Peru who has three points from two matches. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Ecuador with the last chance to claim three points

A draw and a defeat in their two matches in Copa America saw Ecuador lie in fifth place of Group B. Coach Alfaro’s team need to enter this match with the aim of winning if they want to qualify to the knockout stage and raise their point tally to four before they play Brazil in their final game of the group.

Ecuador were the better team in both of the matches they played so far. Against Colombia, coach Alfaro’s team had more ball possession and goal attempts but still lost. They couldn’t hold on to their 2-1 lead against Venezuela and conceded in the 91st minute despite dominating the game with 69% ball possession and 19 goal attempts.

Ecuador Key Stats

  • 60% of Ecuador’s last ten matches saw both teams score
  • Ecuador have no clean sheets in their last ten games
  • 1.8 goals per game in the average of Ecuador in ten games

Peru can secure their second-round spot with a win

After a heavy opening match defeat against hosts Brazil by 4-0, Peru bounced back and registered a very important win against the top candidates to finish top two of group B Colombia by beating them 2-1. With this win, Peru have a great chance now to qualify to the knockout stage if they manage to avoid defeat in their next two games.

Coach Ricardo Gareca’s team had won just one game in two years prior their participation in this year’s Copa America and that win was against their opponents in this match Ecuador in the World Cup qualifiers two weeks ago. Peru played a 4-2-3-1 formation focusing on defense and relying on counters and it paid off in their win against Colombia.

Peru Key Stats

  • Three goals per game is the average number of goals scored in Peru’s last ten games
  • Peru have no clean sheets in their last ten matches
  • Two wins in ten matches is Peru’s win/loss record

Ecuador vs Peru Prediction

Both teams have entered this tournament on the back of a bad form in their recent games. Ecuador haven’t won in four games but will look to avenge their defeat by Peru in the WCQ.

Gonzalo Plata has scored Ecuador’s two of the last three goals and he will be relied heavily upon by coach Alfaro in the offensive third.

Peru have also been winless in two years but have now won two of their last three ma

Carillo and Pena will be the key man for Peru’s goal-scoring task. In the absence of Paolo Guerrero, these two are the players coach Gareca can rely on.

Looking at their stats, we expect both teams to score in this match.
