Argentina to have the lead at half-time

Granted, Ecuador have put up a fairly good run of results lately, winning three matches in a row. However, they’ll be going up against the number 1 ranked team in the World. As a matter of fact, Argentina are currently on a 10 match winning streak, with 15 victories in their last 16 games; they’ve also dominated Ecuador in the past, winning four of the last five skirmishes between these teams.

It’s also important to point out that Argentina opened the scoring in all of their last 20 games across all competitions; they led at half-time in seven of their last eight games. All things considered, we are fairly confident that the hosts will draw first blood, and have the lead at the midway point of this game.

Goals at both ends

To be fair, Argentina have been able to rely on their defense in recent months; as they did not concede a single goal in their last four matches in all competitions. However, preventing this Ecuador team from scoring is easier said than done. The visitors found the back of the net in all of their last seven games; they have averaged two goals per game in their last three matches. Both teams got on the scoresheet in five of Ecuador’s last six matches; and considering Argentina scored in 20 consecutive matches, we believe that both teams will be amongst the goals.

Goals expected to flow

Let’s take a look at the over/under goals market for our last Argentina vs Ecuador prediction. Previous skirmishes between these teams have produced their fair share of goals; as their last five encounters saw just over three goals scored per game on average. In the same vein, four of Ecuador’s last five matches went above the 2.5 goal line. Bearing in mind that Argentina scored three goals per game in their last seven matches, this will likely be a high-scoring affair.
