Ecuador v Chile Betting Tips – 2019 Copa America, 22nd June 00.00am

South American rivals Ecuador and Chile meet in a 2019 Copa America group game. Uruguay lead the way in Group C on four points and are assured of at least third place. The Chileans kicked off their campaign with a handsome victory over Japan, while Ecuador lost by the same scoreline to the Uruguayans in Belo Horizonte. Will La Roja advance through to knockout stage with a win at the Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador?

Ecuador News and Form – Can La Tricolor bounce back?

Ecuador were taught a footballing lesson in their opening Group C game of the tournament. The Uruguayans were ruthless at the Estadio Mineirao, with goals from Nicolas Lodeiro, Edison Cavani and Luis Suarez putting the Sky Blue 3-0 up before half time. Arturo Mina’s then scored an own goal late on to make it four.

La Tricolor have been in very poor form of late, failing to win any of their last five. Their loss to Uruguay was a third defeat in five and their second successive loss. Meanwhile, they have won just two of their last nine as well as four of their previous 15.

With Chile being one of the tournament favourites, this will undoubtedly be a tough test for Hernan Dario Gomez and his team. Still, Ecuador will fancy their chances, and the bookies have them priced at 16/5 in this one.

Chile News and Form – La Roja to make it six points out of six?

Chile have been Copa America specialists in recent times, winning the last two tournaments. Three years ago in the States, the Chileans beat Argentina in the final to retain their crown. Can they make it a hat-trick of Copa America wins? They are currently priced at 10/1 to lift the trophy.

The holders got off to the perfect start in Sao Paulo a few days back, thumping Japan 4-0 at the Estadio do Morumbi. An Erick Pulgar goal sent them on their way, with Eduardo Vargas helping himself to a brace. Manchester United’s Alexis Sanchez, who has been in poor form for his club, also got on the scoresheet in the rout.

The Red One have been in patchy form over the last year or so, but they head into this clash unbeaten in three (two wins, one draw). Chile have been somewhat overlooked in terms of winning the tournament, but you can never write them off. How far can Reinaldo Rueda’s side go in Brazil?

Ecuador v Chile Predictions

Chile win: The defending champions will be a tough nut to crack for Ecuador at the Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova. After getting off to a stunning start in Sao Paulo, Rueda’s troops will be hoping to make it six points out of six. I fancy Chile to win this one, and bet365 have them priced at 5/6. Having said that, Ecuador will want to get on the scoresheet after drawing a blank in their first match of the competition. Therefore, put some money on the Chile win and both teams to score at 3/1.
