Mexico vs Ecuador
International – Friendlies
Date: Monday, 10th June 2019
Kick-off at 00.00 UK/ 01.00 CET
Venue: AT&T Stadium (Arlington).
Both teams have major tournaments coming their way. Mexico is in preparation for the Gold Cup 2019, where they have lifted the title an astonishing six times, just one fewer than that of the US. Their last game saw them recording a comeback win over Venezuela.
At home, Mexico was put on some early pressure, as the visitors found the net early. But the home team rallied to score the equalizer in the 32nd minute, before adding two more goals in the second half to complete the formality.
Ecuador took on this same Venezuela and could post only a draw. Though the manner in which the draw was secured was supremely confidence-boosting for the squad.
The former was on the road, and after two early yellow cards, the home team fired a goal past the opposing defense to take a 1-0 lead. Ecuador tried their very best to get back into the tie. In the 69th minute the manager responded with a triple substitution, and finally, at the end of the game, in the injury time, the squad was able to bring parity into the match with an equalizing goal.
Mexico vs Ecuador Head-to-head (h2h)
- Four of the last five wins went to Mexico.

- In the last three decades, only once has Mexico failed to find the back of the net.
- At one point, Mexico had a seven-match winning streak against this opponent.
Mexico vs Ecuador Prediction
Mexico is on a three-game winning streak, and more than the number of wins, what matters is the quality of opposition they had. Not only the team defeated Venezuela, Paraguay, and Chile in succession, they recorded three or more goals in all of these ties as well.
Ecuador, meanwhile, is winless in their last three fixtures, and so are they in the last three attempts away from home as well. Even more, in their last 17 games on the road, the team could manage just two wins.
Importantly, in h2h ties, Mexico has had a blast. They registered four of the last five wins, and 12 of the last 14 as well.
Moreover, Mexico once went on a seven-game winning streak against this opposition, and only once have they ever failed to find the back of the net against Ecuador.
By all means, expect the CONCACAF Gold Cup contender to come strong and record a good win in preparation for their national duty.
