Mexico vs Ecuador
International Friendlies
Date: Monday, 6 June 2022
Kick-off at 0:30 UK / 1:30 CET
Venue: Soldier Field.

Mexico and Ecuador both who have qualified for 2022 World Cup are set to square off at Soldier Field in Chicago in a friendly fixture on Monday.

The Mexican side are getting set to make an eighth consecutive appearance at the World Cup later this year. They have qualified for FIFA World Cup 2022 along with USA and Canada two months back. The hosts have a busy summer of preparation before travelling to Qatar, with three friendlies and two CONCACAF Nations League games in between now and the end of August.

Mexico come here on the back of a 0-3 defeat to Uruguay in a friendly fixture against them 2 days back. That defeat came after their long 9-game unbeaten run across different competitions. El Tri scored a goal or fewer in 11 of their 14 qualifiers, winning 5 of their eight matches by a single goal.

On the other side, Ecuador has now failed to win any of their last 5 outings across all competitions, including their final four away games in the World Cup qualifier rounds. They have lost only once from their last 10 games across all venues and they have not failed to book a place off to Qatar.

Ecuador won against Nigeria by 1-0 in their latest game at a friendly international, played just this week. La Tri secured 4th spot in the South American WC qualifier rounds after Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay with 7 wins form 18 games.

Mexico vs Ecuador Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Their last 5 h2h games saw Mexico with 3 wins while Ecuador won twice.
  • At least 3 goals were seen in 4 out of their last 5 h2hs.
  • Last time they met was in 2021 at an International friendly where Ecuador won by 3-2.

Mexico vs Ecuador Prediction

Mexico lost only once from their last 10 games across various competitions. They have only conceded twice in their previous 7 encounters on all venues. El Tri has secured a WC spot with a strong foot and has been impressive lately.

Meanwhile, La Tri head into the game on a run of just one win form their previous 6 fixtures. They have also seen conceding in 5 of their previous 6 matches and they need some defensive adjustments.

Based on the h2h stats and current form, we feel that Mexico seems the likeliest candidate to win here.
