Ecuador – Venezuela Predictions and Preview

  • Ecuador and Venezuela are gearing up for their Copa América Group B journey, buoyed by their recent performance in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualification campaign. After six matchdays, both teams find themselves above the continental giants, Brazil, in the standings.
  • Ecuador could have been in an even better position if not for a points deduction. Nevertheless, they should be confident about making a strong start in this tournament, as they have never won it before. Looking to replicate their best result since finishing fourth in 1993, the Ecuadorian team aims to reach the quarter-finals once again.
  • In the last edition, they reached the quarter-finals despite remaining winless across nine Copa América games (D4, L5). However, they can take solace from their recent record, which has produced six wins out of ten (D2, L2). The two defeats came against powerhouses Italy and Argentina.
  • Coach Félix Sánchez is confident that this will set La Tri up nicely for this competition. They look to win their opening fixture of a Copa América campaign for the first time since 1993 (D3, L8)!
  • Coincidentally, the win back in 1993 came against Venezuela, who have high hopes of making it out of the group stage this year. They have actually managed to get out of their group in four of their last six Copa América appearances. However, repeating that feat will rely on them improving upon their recent results.
  • Venezuela have now failed to win their last five games (D3, L2). Moreover, they have also failed to score in four of their last five Copa América matches (D2, L3). Yet, with a Mexico side that is in the midst of a generational change and a Jamaican side that is struggling with internal squabbles, Venezuela will fancy their chances of getting out of Group B if they can rediscover their form.
  • Players to watch: Enner Valencia is Ecuador’s most decorated goal scorer with five goals in this competition previously. Salomón Rondón will likely lead the line for Venezuela, and his last three goals in this competition have served as his side’s only strikes of the match — twice in 1-0 wins.
  • Hot stat: Eight of Ecuador’s last 11 Copa América matches saw at least three total goals scored.
