Ecuador – Argentina: Preview & Prediction
The Ecuador team does not appear to have appeared yet in this 2017 season because of their nine matches, they came out with a win in just three, the last one being a 2-1 loss to Chile. Therefore, now no longer having a chance of a qualification should go looking for the minimum of a simple victory against its fans. The home team is currently in eighth place with just twenty points, so now playing against the fifth position of the group knows that it will have difficulties to look for a victory, since the team depends on a victory to secure a place in the World Cup . For this game the team should not expose themselves so much, then it should come with a proposal of more defensive game looking for not conceding goals.
The visiting team arrives for this game knowing that they will need to look for a win to not be eliminated in the competition. Therefore, for this game the team should come with a more offensive stance, looking for possession of the ball to have the best opportunities to score and leave with the three points in this match. Argentina have made seven appearances in the current season, coming out with a win in just three chances, the last game being a draw against Peru with a 0-0 result. For this game, the team should not be without omissions, so it should maintain its scheme in 4-5-1, especially Messi in the offensive sector.
The Ecuadorian team has no more chances to qualify for the World Cup, so it will only meet the table. On this day, the team will have a difficult time in front of them, so it will be necessary to enter at least 90 minutes into the game. The Argentina team must win this duel, otherwise they will be out of the World Cup, so they will come with everything in this game in search of the positive result. Even playing away from home we believe that Argentina is a favorite for this duel, because they have a more qualified team than their opponent and need to add the three points.
