Ecuador vs Uruguay
World Cup Qualifiers South America
Date: Tuesday, 13 October 2020
Kick-Off at 22.00 UK
Venue: Estadio Rodrigo Paz Delgado, Quito.

After the successful start of brand new campaign, Oscar Tabarez and his squad will be looking to snatch another point or three on Tuesday night against Ecuador in Quito.

Beating Chile nowadays is quite an achievement, especially after some key players didn’t show up for Uruguay last weekend.

This time they will be the underdogs, priced at high 3.20 rate to win this match. Hosts were not looking so bad in their initial game against Argentina, but still lost it narrowly 1-0.

We should witness an interesting match at Rodrigo Paz Delgado Stadium.

Ecuador vs Uruguay Head-to-head

It is interesting to mention that last four head to head duels between these teams were always won by the hosts. Ecuador hosted Uruguay in WC Qualifiers in 2015 and 2013, winning both games 2-1 and 1-0.

There were 13 duels in the past so far and stats are heavily going in favour of Uruguay 7-2 in terms of victories. They are not having positive results at this soil though (1-2-2).

Average number of goals scored in all previous h2h’s is 3.25 per match.

Ecuador vs Uruguay Prediction

As mentioned above Uruguay have battled against rough opponent in the first round and won. Luis Suarez was once again team leader, scoring the opening goal in the first half. The winner though was seen in the 93rd minute by Maxi Gomez who just entered the pitch six minutes before that.

Another thing worth mentioning is that Diego Godin suffered a knock in that duel, but he will most likely be ready for Ecuador.

Enner Valencia was in a great position to secure a point for Ecuadorians against Argentina, but missed the opportunity. This squad definitely has the quality to compete for top four positions, having players like Ibarra, Caicedo and others. However, form is currently not looking great, so we feel that draw is the most realistic outcome of this clash.
