Preview: Ecuador vs Colombia
Talking about La Tri first, they’re doing good in the qualifiers so far, losing one and winning two games. They started the campaign against Lionel Messi’s Argentina and became victim of his greatness as he secured all three points for his side with a beautiful free-kick in the 78th minute.
A few days later, they faced another heavyweight, Uruguay, in their second game and won by 2-1. This month, they faced Bolivia on October 13 in Laz Paz and won by the same score of 2-1, thanks to Rodríguez’s 96th-minute goal.
Coming to this game, Félix Sánchez’s men have failed to keep a clean sheet in the last four games and would like to produce an improved defensive display.
On the other hand, the Colombian team will take the field with a 14-game unbeaten streak, including nine away games. They started their campaign with a win (1-0) against Venezuela at home. They drew their second game against Chile (0-0) at away.
For their third game of the qualifiers, they returned home and faced Colombia for the second-consecutive draw (2-2), which saw their shot-stopper Camilo Vargas getting sent off who received the second yellow card of the game in the 87th minute for a bad foul.
