Colombia to Win

With seven games left to go in these WC Qualifiers, both Colombia and Ecuador are among the top five teams in the group and on a good path to reaching the main stage in Qatar. The first match between these two teams in the group was a total nightmare for Colombia since Ecuador won that game 6-1. Colombia later got their revenge at Copa America, but they will want more to compensate for that loss. Since Colombia is the host and they’ve won four of the last five duels with Ecuador, our prediction is for Colombia to win this game as well.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Although we’ve only seen two of the last five head-to-head games between Colombia and Ecuador go over 2.5 total goals, our prediction for this game is that we’ll see at least three goals. The reason lies in the fact that Ecuador averaged 3.00 goals per game in these Qualifiers, while Colombia averaged 2.91 goals per game in the group – which are the second and third highest averages and by a good margin.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

This prediction comes with the same problem as the last one – only two of the last five meetings between these two teams have ended with both teams scoring. However, both teams have scored in 55% of all Colombia matches in the group, as well as 45% of all Ecuador games in the Qualifiers, so we expect both teams to score in this one.

Colombia vs Ecuador preview: Derby of the round

With both teams on course to reach the World Cup, this game should be very important and exciting. So, let’s check the teams out in more detail right now:

Colombia

The Colombian national team is undefeated in the last seven matches in the Qualifiers, although five of those games have ended in draws. Still, that is enough to get Colombia to the fifth spot, one point behind Uruguay and their upcoming opponents Ecuador who are in places that lead directly to the World Cup. So, a win over Ecuador now would allow Colombia to overtake them on the standings and have revenge for the humiliating 6-1 loss in their first meeting in the Qualifiers.

Ecuador

After a surprising loss to Venezuela in the last round, Ecuador now only has one point advantage over their next opponent Colombia and four points more than the first team outside of the top five places in the group. So, they will need to do better in their upcoming games in the Qualifiers if they want to secure a direct spot in the World Cup, or even a spot in the inter-conference playoffs.
