On the North American football fields, many Latin American teams are playing friendlies.

Here is the best Ecuador vs Costa Rica prediction and betting tips that help you to choose the right bet.

The Best Betting Tips and Ecuador vs Costa Rica Prediction

Ecuador to Win

The last 3 meetings between these teams were more than 10 years ago. In all of them, the winner was the tricolor team. However, the football of the Central American team has evolved in recent years.

While the South Americans have 2 wins, their next opponent lost the last two matches. Our Ecuador vs Costa Rica prediction is that the team from the middle of the world will be the winner.

Over 2.5 Goals

This will be the last friendly before they each start their important matches. Both teams will use the duel to test various strategies.

These variations by each team can lead to defensive sloppiness. Taking these facts into account, we are likely to see more than 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score

The Ecuadorian team barely kept a clean sheet in 1 of their last 5 games, in fact we saw BTTS in the other 4 games. Both Ecuador vs Costa Rica line ups have serious defensive problems.

In most of each team’s last games, they were the first to concede goals. Going by the data, I predict we will see BTTS.

Latest Ecuador vs Costa Rica Preview

Ecuador

The Ecuadorian team scored their second consecutive victory after defeating Bolivia 1-0. Felix Sanchez’s side played very well and controlled the game from start to finish.

Possession of the ball was the difference, as Bolivia only had 29% of the possession and hardly shot once on target. On the other hand, Ecuador took advantage of every space to score on up to six occasions, but only one ended in a goal, the one scored by Enner Valencia in the 69th minute.

Costa Rica

After qualifying the Costa Rica national football team, Luis Guzman will remain in charge of the team. The CONCACAF Gold Cup is just a few days away and Keylor Navas’ team is playing its last preparation matches.

They have played three games this year and lost two, the last one against Guatemala. Only six minutes passed when Costa Rica conceded the first goal. During the rest of the match, both teams had a few chances to score but the result did not change.
