In this post betting tips and match preview of Ecuador-Bolivia, which starts the second round of the Group A.
ECUADOR - BOLIVIA
Ecuador has lost the first match against Chile playing a good football: very dangerous with their fast counterattacks with a solid defensive phase. Both goals conceded have been caused by 2
individual mistakes: in the first goal Bolanos ingenously held Vidal and the referee gave the penalty kick and the second goal occurred because of a missed pass in the midfield giving the chance
for a counterattack finalized by Edu Vargas.
Bolivia has played a defensive match against Mexico and has gained a point.
From a tactical perspective we expect to see a different Ecuador tonight, because this time they will have less chances to counterattack since Bolivia will be with a very low baricenter, trying to limit the pace of ecuadorian players.
We think this is not going to be a pleasant match.
Taking a look at statistics we notice that Ecuador has lost in 9 of the last 10 Copa America appearances, while last bolivian win occurred on 25th June 1997, the period when Luis Nazario da Lima Ronaldo was about to sign for Inter and Titanic was the main movie at cinemas...
In any case we choose Ecuador to win, since is surely stronger than Bolivia and had one more day to recover their energies.
