USA are coming on the back of a 3-1 win over Puerto Rico on the weekend, despite most of the first team players being unavailable due to MLS duties. The team is currently on a green patch after remaining unbeaten in 6 of the last 7 matches, with 5 wins, 1 draw and a loss.

Ecuador on the other hand are on the path of a revival after getting knocked out of the Copa America group stages in Chile 2015. They have won 5 out of the 7 matches since then. However, they are without a win in the last two matches, after drawing against Paraguay, followed by a 3-1 defeat to Colombia.

USA: Team News

Jurgen Klinsmann has no major injury concerns and a fully fit squad is at his disposal for the friendly against Ecuador. Changes are expected from the squad that started against Puerto Rico on the weekend as those playing in MLS have joined the camp this week.

USA: Predicted Line-up (4-4-2)

Guzan – Johnson, Orozco, Cameron, Yedlin – Kitchen, Bradley, Jones, Bedoya – Dempsey, Wood.

Ecuador: Team News

Gustavo Quinteros will be looking to field the strongest possible line-up and he has plenty of quality in the form of Antonio Valencia, Jefferson Montero and Enner Valencia. And each of these players are expected to start here.

Ecuador: Predicted Line-up (4-4-2)

Domínguez – Ayovi, Erazo, Achilier, Paredes – A.Valencia, Noboa, Gruezo, Montero – E.Valencia, Bolanos.

USA vs Ecuador: Head-to-Head Stats

  • The teams have met on 12 occasions, since 1984, with USA winning just 2, while Ecuador won 5 and drawn 5.
  • The last meeting was on 10-October-2015, in a match that finished in a 1-1 draw.
  • Ecuador can boast of a 2 match unbeaten streak against USA. However, USA leads the head-to-head in the last 5 matches between the sides with 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 defeat.

USA vs Ecuador: Prediction

Ecuador will go into the match as slight favourites with their strong run of results, especially the wins against Argentina and Uruguay has to be highlighted. Moreover, they have scored at least one goal in each of their last 9 matches.

Their Thursday’s opponents USA are not in bad form and they will be very motivated with a strong support from their home fans. Klinsmann’s side are on a 4 match winning run at home and they are expected to avoid a defeat here.

My Prediction for this match is 2-2.
