In this post betting tips and preview of Mexico-Ecuador, the first match of the last round in group A.
MEXICO - ECUADOR
After the frist 2 matches played, Ecuador has still 0 points and to pass the group stage has to beat Mexico tonight, possibly scoring a lot.
A draw would be unuseful for both teams because taking a look at the situation in the other groups, we think that in the end 3rd classified teams will have 4 points( 8 teams will reach the final stage, the first two of each group + the best 2 3rd classified).
We expect to see the same tactical approach Mexico had in the first 2 matches: arranged with a 3-5-2 and trying to hit counterattacking.
Ecuador, instead, is forced to play very offensive: they have showed their attacking phase is really good, creating a lot of goal attemps, but the big problem is the defense that concedes goals with ease (in the previous match Bolivia scored 3 goals and till that clash they had never scored 3 goals in a single match in Copa America in its history).
We prefer to avoid betting on the winner and we suggest to bet on the goals, which should not be missing especially in the second half.
MEXICO: José de Jesús Corona, Gerardo Flores, Hugo Ayala, Julio César Domínguez, Juan Carlos Valenzuela, Efraín Velarde, Juan Carlos Medina, Javier Güemez, Jesús Corona, Matías
Vuoso, Raúl Jiménez.
ECUADOR: Alexander Domínguez, Juan Carlos Paredes, Gabriel Achilier, Frickson Erazo, Walter Ayoví, Fidel Martínez, Christian Noboa, Pedro Quiñónez, Jefferson Montero, Miler Bolaños, Enner Valencia.
