Ecuador vs Uruguay Prediction
As referenced above Uruguay have struggled against harsh rival in the first round and won. Luis Suarez was indeed the team leader, scoring the opening goal in the first half. The winner however was found in the 93rd minute by Maxi Gomez who just entered the pitch six minutes before that.
Something else worth referencing is that Diego Godin endured a knock in that duel, however he will doubtlessly be prepared for Ecuador.
Enner Valencia was in an extraordinary situation to make sure about a point for Ecuadorians against Argentina, yet missed the chance. This squad definitely has the quality to vie for top four positions, having players like Ibarra, Caicedo and others. Notwithstanding, the form is at present not looking extraordinary, so we feel that draw is the most practical result of this conflict.
Ecuador have a decent squad, yet will depend vigorously on Fenerbahce striker Enner Valencia to give the goals. Much is normal from left-back Pervis Estupinan, who is viewed as outstanding amongst other youthful left-backs in La Liga.
Uruguay, then again, have an amazingly capable squad. A midfield supported by Juventus’ Rodrigo Bentancur and Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde gives a decent base, while veteran forward Luis Suarez keeps on scoring goals at a predictable rate for club and nation.
Uruguay have world-class players in their ranks, and ought to have the option to move beyond Ecuador.
