ECUADOR VS PARAGUAY PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Ecuador had 9 points after 6 matches, only behind Brazil and Argentina in South America. But they have to admit they are falling alarmingly. 7 consecutive winless matches including 4 defeats partly show the instability of this team. The ability to score the most obvious decline, in the last 7 matches, the strikers only had 6 goals and 3 matches. Especially in the last match, losing 1-2 to Peru at home, Ecuador was really stuck when faced with pragmatic play. It will not be surprising if Alfaro’s students face difficulties with Paraguay’s solid defense. With the current performance, Ecuador is not appreciated when placed in the top position and needs a breakthrough.
There are not many outstanding individuals, but Paraguay’s achievements in major tournaments are very impressive. They have won the Copa 2 times and participated in the World Cup 8 times. The cohesive and very solid team play is still the identity that brings success to Berizzo’s students. Invincible 5/6 first matches brought 7 points, scored 6 goals and only conceded 7 times. The attack is not too prominent, but the defense and counterattack are extremely effective. 3 trips to draw both Uruguay and Argentina and beat Venezuela 1-0 fully show the danger of Paraguay. It is not difficult to predict the uncomfortable defensive posture that Paraguay will spread against Ecuador.
Select: Under 2.25 FT.
The two teams proved to be equally talented in terms of both strength and performance in Copa America. Although Ecuador is more appreciated with stars like Valencia and home advantage, Paraguay is also confident with a record of 8 World Cup participations. The head-to-head record is in favor of the away team with 2 victories but only losing the last 1/5 matches.
Paraguay’s performance in the World Cup qualifiers is very stable with 1 win and 4 draws, only receiving a defeat against Brazil. Meanwhile, Ecuador lost 3/6 matches, the last 2 rounds were all empty-handed. More broadly, Ecuador is going through a series of 7 consecutive games without a win, a very clear sign of instability. It can be seen that Paraguay’s performance and spirit are better prepared, at least 1 point for the away team is a wise choice.
Select: Paraguay FT.
European odds appreciate the possibility of Ecuador winning. However, Paraguay is not inexperienced and is very dangerous when placed in the bottom position. The draw result is a wise choice with the balance of forces between the two teams.
Select: Draw FT.
