Colombia are still on the outskirts of the automatic qualification places to reach the 2022 World Cup.

They have a chance to claim a big three points on Thursday when they host Ecuador.

Ecuador are one of those hanging onto an automatic qualification spot in CONMEBOL and will be looking to hold off Los Cafeteros.

Colombia Preview – Can Colombia make their move?

There is going to be some pressure on Colombia to deliver a home win in this qualifier on Thursday.

They are fifth in the table at the moment, as they look for a top four finish which will automatically get them to the World Cup next year.

With Brazil and Argentina occupying two of those four spots comfortably, Colombia needed to make a move.

Victory on Thursday would see them move ahead of Ecuador who have a one point advantage over them.

The win for Colombia in football betting sees them at a quote of 4/5 odds-on* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021).

So far at home in this qualification campaign, Colombia are W1 D2 L1.

It hasn’t been stellar stuff from them, but the two draws were against Brazil and Argentina.

It was a 0-0 draw at home that Colombia played out against Brazil in their last five.

Overall they sat on a W3 D6 L2 record in this campaign.

Our betting prediction:
Colombia to win & under 2.5 goals

* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021)


Colombia are facing a team above them in the group standings and they have met Ecuador once this year already.

That ended in a 1-0 win for Colombia in the summer’s Copa America.

During this qualification campaign, however, when they went to Ecuador, Colombia were smashed 6-1.

But the overall head to head does offer some encouragement for Colombia.

They have won five of the last six meetings against Ecuador, taking a clean sheet in four of those.

Colombia to win to nil on Thursday is a quote of 15/8 for football betting* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021).


Ecuador Preview – Can Ecuador avoid defeat?

A point out of this fixture would leave Ecuador happy enough as it would keep them in the top four.

Ecuador are W5 D1 L5 in this qualification campaign.

They suffered a defeat in their latest game, a recent 2-1 away defeat at Venezuela.

That was a really poor result for Ecuador against the bottom side in the table and a huge missed chance at three points.

A positive for them is that Brazil are the only team to have scored more qualification goals than they have in this campaign.

But there have been struggles with away form.

Their loss at Venezuela in their latest game leaves Ecuador at W1 L4 on their travels in this qualification group.

In the match outright for football betting, the win for Ecuador is at 10/3* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021).

Ecuador have scored four goals in their five away games in the group. Three of those came in a narrow win at Bolivia.

Just overall home and away, Ecuador are starting to show a dip in form.

They have lost three of their last six international fixtures (W2 D1).

Both wins in that sequence of current form did happen on home soil, so again, it’s their vulnerability on the road which is likely to trip them up.

This looks like being a low scoring fixture as Ecuador may just try and avoid defeat.


Colombia vs Ecuador Betting Advice

The first pick that we have for football betting is the Colombia To Win & Under 2.5 goals at 13/5* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021).

Colombia have drawn four of their last six and have only scored more than one goal in one of their last five.

This has to be a big chance that they take to launch themselves into the top four.


Key Facts – Colombia vs Ecuador Betting Tip

  • Colombia have won 5 of their last 6 against Ecuador
  • Colombia are W2 D4 in their last six internationals
  • Ecuador have lost four of five away games in qualification


Ecuador had that resounding win over Colombia earlier in this qualification campaign, but they have gone off the boil.

They suffered a shocker of an away loss at Venezuela in their latest.

Given that the visitors are down badly in the recent head to head against Los Cafeteros, the win for Colombia takes preference at 4/5* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021).
