Venezuela vs Ecuador
Date: Sunday, 2 June 2019
Kick-Off 02:00 UK / 03:00 CET
Venue: Hard Rock Stadium (Miami).
Venezuela and Ecuador are going to test each other before their respective appearances at Copa America in mid-June. The venue is neutral as the friendly is going to take place at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on Saturday evening.
It will be the first of three June checks for La Vinotinto. They showed two opposite faces in March losing 2-1 to Catalonia just days after shocking South American heavyweights Argentina 3-1 at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. The result is even bigger if we know Lionel Messi was in the squad from the first minute of Los Gauchos on the occasion.
Overall, head coach Rafael Dudamel can be satisfied with his team’s displays in recent matches. La Vinotinto are unbeaten in last five official friendlies and they’ve scored at least a goal in each of last six. It’s a very decent form if we know the opposition included the likes of Colombia, Japan, Iran and Argentina along the way.
Venezuela vs Ecuador: Head-to-head
Venezuela will be looking to bring a negative trend in head to head matches with La Tricolor here.
Ecuador won three and drew two of past five meetings with La Vinotinto.
Both teams scored in three of last four head to head affairs.
Venezuela vs Ecuador: Prediction
Unlike Venezuela, Ecuador struggled badly for goals lately. They failed to find the way past the likes of United States (a 1-0 defeat) and Honduras (a 0-0 draw) in friendlies in March. They were tough to break down at the opposite end as well, though, having shipped just two goals in last five matches.
Anyhow, we expect Venezuela’s attacking-minded style to prevail here. La Tri have strong attacking option in the like of Enner Valencia. Both teams to score is our primary betting option at the odds of 1.90 here since three of past four H2H games between the two teams ended with this scenario. As for the outcome, draw looks to be the most probable of three and we will go for it at the odds of 3.10.
