Ecuador vs Trinidad and Tobago Prediction
Ecuador was trumped the last match-day, as they took on two-time world champions Argentina. The squad under Lionel Scaloni, in the process of rebuilding, played desperately for a huge win, and the scorecard reflected the situation.
Even without some of the biggest names in football, of the likes of Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, etc, the Albiceleste was able to convincingly beat this Ecuadorian contingent. Three goals apiece in each half gave Scaloni’s men an admirable scoresheet of 6-1. The lone goal by the losers had come in the 49th minute of the game.
Trinidad and Tobago meanwhile, had a comparatively much easier opponent, and they expectedly made mincemeat out of their opponent. One after the other, 15 goals were put into the opposition’s net, and in return for none. The opponents were Anguilla, and they were on the road as well.
As this Trinidad and Tobago team take on the Latin American opponents though, the situation is reversed. Ecuador may not be amongst the best in the CONMEBOL region, but years of battle against those world-class opponents have surely hardened them.
They had finished seventh in the table for world cup qualification from the confederation and recently took part in the furiously competitive Copa America. On the other hand, their opposite number is a part of the comparatively inferior CONCACAF and even finished dead-last in the preceding Gold Cup.
In addition, they are on the road, and importantly, they are yet to post a win against this opponent. They have also lost 100% of such encounters on this Ecuador soil. The team is also winless in their previous 16 away ties, and have just a victory to show for, from their efforts in the prior 24 road games. On the other hand, the Latin Americans have lost just five times from their last 21 appearances in front of the home crowd.
Taking these observations into account, anticipate a win for Ecuador this Thursday.
