Chile – Ecuador: Preview & Prediction
The team has faltered in many decisive moments and has wasted all the opportunities it has had. Chile even has a good team, where Medel, Vidal, Alexis or Vargas play.
As a team they have not worked and the latest results translate that. They come from two consecutive defeats, 0-3 at home to Paraguay and 1-0 away from home in Bolivia.
Defeats that came in terrible height and that put Chile in a very, very delicate position, being at the moment in 6th place and out of the places of qualification for the World Cup or even of Play Off.
It should be noted that Chile then moves to Brazil and can be an authentic end. Chile knows that only victory matters, otherwise it could mean goodbye to the World Cup.
The selection of Ecuador departs for this game still with mathematical possibilities to guarantee qualification for the World Cup. For that only the victory matters in Chile, otherwise they are guaranteedly removed from this fight.
Ecuador is an out-of-home team who find it harder to play their best football because at home playing at altitude they end up having some advantage, which does not happen outside the home.
Ecuador have some good players, but it’s worth more for their team, for the collective.
At this moment they cross the worst phase of the qualification, they come from 4 consecutive defeats that conditioned and much the objective to qualify.
The last defeat by 1-2 at home with Peru was nothing in the plans and this originated the change of coach.
Prediction Chile vs Ecuador:
Game between two afflicted teams that need to win or win, there is another possibility. Expect an emotional encounter and nerves between two teams that have been very nervous and playing little.
Both go through very negative phases and seek in this game to reverse this bad phase. It will be a difficult game for both teams, Chile are somewhat uneasy, Ecuador have come from 4 consecutive defeats and changed coaches.
Looking at both teams, here I will give some favoritism to Chile that apart from playing at home,
has better individuals and in these games players like Alexis and Vidal usually appear. They play at home, they will have strong support and before a trip to Brazil, winning is fundamental.
