Colombia vs Ecuador: prediction for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier
Colombia reached the semifinals of Copa America this year, where they lost to the future champion Argentina. Los Cafeteros defeated Peru in the game for third place (3:2), thus earning a set of bronze medals.
Reinaldo Rueda's men won 3 out of 11 games in the current World Cup qualification; six games ended in a draw. This has brought Colombia 15 points and 5th place in the table. After beating Chile (3:1), the hosts recorded two goalless draws - with Uruguay and Brazil.
Ecuador were defeated by Argentina in the quarterfinal game at Copa America earlier this year (0:3). In the current qualifying matches, Ecuador are doing really well. After 11 rounds they have 16 points and are 3rd in the table. Ecuador won 5 matches and drew in one game.
Ecuador have amazing stacking performance in the qualifiers - they've scored 20 goals. In the last two rounds, Ecuador crushed Bolivia (3:0) and lost to Venezuela (1:2).
In the last 4 head-to-head games, only one side scored.
In 2 out of 3 previous games, Colombia scored over 1.5 goals.
This bet won in the last 2 head-to-head games.
Ecuador do not look as powerful as they did at the start of the qualifying, but they have retained 3rd place in the standings. Colombia looked good against Brazil in the last game, but the team doesn't have a leader. Neither side has room for error, but a draw can satisfy both teams. We believe the game will be tied.
Our prediction - a draw
We predict another goalless draw, just like in the last round's game between Brazil and Colombia.
Second bet - total under 2.5 goals
