Colombia vs Ecuador prediction on June 14, 2021. Colombia will face Ecuador in the first match of Group B Copa America 2021, their goal is nothing but 1 victory to dominate from the beginning. That goal is completely feasible when Colombia’s strength is always marginally better than Ecuador’s.
Colombia is still on a journey to regain the image of one of the strongest teams in South America. They did not get really good results in the first stages at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers with matches that were almost only drawn and lost. But in the latest gathering, Colombia excellently defeated Peru 3-0 at home before bravely holding Argentina 2-2 in the last round.
Ecuador played very well in the above qualifying journey, but that is only the story in 2020. They won a lot of victories to always maintain 3rd place in the rankings after Brazil and Argentina. However, in 2021, things turned out to be very different when Ecuador lost the last two rounds. If the loss to Brazil is completely understandable, the recent defeat to Peru at home is extremely reprehensible.
Asian Bet – Colombia vs Ecuador prediction
Ecuador’s performances are still extremely unpredictable. After a series of 4 wins, Gustavo Alfaro’s men lost their last 2 matches in the South American World Cup qualifiers. In addition to a surprising 6-1 victory, Ecuador has never been an equal opponent with Colombian football.
Every time they have to leave their home field, Ecuador always has a certain awkwardness. In the last 10 trips, Valencia and his teammates had 8 times unable to win, including 6 defeats. Therefore, Ecuador is still considered to be slightly weaker than Colombia in this confrontation.
Colombia vs Ecuador Prediction:
- Choose Colombia – 0.25 (HT)
- Choose Colombia – 0.5 (FT)
Considering the last 10 encounters between the two teams, Colombia has a much better record with 7 wins and only conceded 1 goal in those 7 victories. In addition, from 2008 until now, this confrontation has never appeared a draw. With home advantage and better form in the preparation stage, Colombia is expected to have 3 points in the opening match.
Choose Colombia (FT)
Over/Under Bet – Colombia vs Ecuador prediction
The last 6 matches have had the presence of Colombia, the results are very beneficial to the bettors when there are at least 3 goals scored. In 2021, Reinaldo Rueda’s men only played 2 matches but also got 5 goals against very difficult opponents like Argentina or Peru. Neither Falcao nor James Rodriguez was summoned, but the home team’s offensive power still showed no signs of decline.
Ecuador still shows an unstable face in defense and there is almost no improvement. From November 2019 until now, Ecuador has not had a single match to keep a clean sheet. This team’s fighting style is too familiar to South American football fans.
