Our prediction for this match:
After producing a fine display in a goalless draw with star-studded Brazil, Colombia will be aiming to return to winning ways in the World Cup qualifiers when they host Ecuador to Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Melendez on Thursday evening. Key midfielder Juan Cuadrado returns from suspension, while Atalanta attacker Duvan Zapata is widely expected to replace Radamel Falcao in the starting XI.
Since Colombia are a real force to be reckoned with at home, it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to win Thursday’s qualifier. Ecuador, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Rondon-less Venezuela, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. As always, a man to watch in the away team will be Enner Valencia, who has netted three goals in the process to date.
