Uruguay vs Ecuador PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
After losing 0-1 to Argentina in the opening match of the Copa, Uruguay is maintaining an extremely impressive form. They are unbeaten in 6 consecutive matches, including 3 wins. This is showing the stability of this team. In this series of matches, Uruguay only received 4 goals and kept a clean sheet in 3 matches. The physical and extremely solid style of play has become the identity of Uruguay over the past decade.
The most impressive is the 1-0 victory over Paraguay and 4-2 against Bolivia 4 days ago. Although the attack is not appreciated when scoring an average of 1.5 goals/game, this is a very pragmatic team. They are ready to punish any mistakes of Ecuador as well as to protect the achievements.
The 0-0 draw against Chile in the 8th round is making Ecuador’s 3rd place shaken violently. More worryingly, they often show a rather poor face when playing away from home. 5 matches in a row only know the draw and lose. Among them, the 0-3 defeat against Argentina is the clearest proof. Their defense is often distracted, so they conceded 9 goals in that series.
On the public side, the situation is not good. In the last 5 away matches, they only got 3 goals and 3 matches. With the current form, Ecuador can hardly do anything against the solid defense of Uruguay. The calculation is enhanced because if it is empty-handed at this stage, Ecuador will completely lose their advantages.
The competitive nature along with the cautious tendency of the two teams is making the door an adventure. The last 9/10 matches of Uruguay did not have more than 2 goals. Ecuador’s last 2 matches also had similar results.
Select: Under 2.25 FT.
Uruguay can be confident of the quality of the uniform squad as well as a very good head-to-head record at home. The last 2 times to welcome Ecuador, Uruguay has won and extended the series of 5 unbeaten matches. While Ecuador is showing signs of decline from Copa America, leaving the tournament without a win.
Uruguay’s recent form is extremely impressive with 3 wins and 6 consecutive unbeaten matches. Not only that, but they also gained excitement after a jubilant 4-2 victory over Bolivia. On the other side of the field, Ecuador’s signs of instability are increasingly clear, they only got 1 win in the last 9 matches. The most disappointing was the 1-2 defeat against direct competitor Peru. With completely outstanding performance, Uruguay is still a completely wise choice.
Select: Uruguay FT.
