Ecuador vs Venezuela Predictions


While Ecuador are favourites, Venezuela are capable of making this an intriguing encounter in California.

I'm backing BTTS, while I also fancy the Venezuelans to pick up a positive result. 

  • Ecuador have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 7 matches (Copa America)
  • Ecuador failed to win their last 9 matches (Copa America)
  • Ecuador failed to win 5 of their last 6 matches against Venezuela
  • Venezuela are unbeaten in their last 5 matches (competitive fixtures)
  • Venezuela have seen BTTS in 6 of their last 8 matches against Ecuador
  • Venezuela have seen BTTS in 2 of their last 4 matches (competitive fixtures)

Head to Head


Saturday's Copa America clash will be the 22nd meeting of these nations since 2000. Ecuador lead the H2H record with ten wins to six. 

Four of their last six encounters finished as draws, including a 0-0 share of the spoils in a World Cup qualifier last November. 

Ecuador Form


Ecuador come into Saturday's Copa America contest in search of a first win at this competition since 2016. La Tri failed to win any of their last nine games at this tournament, while they have recorded just two wins in 24 Copa America matches since 2001.

Félix Sánchez's men enjoyed decent preparation for this competition, scoring victories against Bolivia (3-1) and Honduras (2-1) earlier this month. 

In decent form over the past 12 months, Ecuador won eight and lost only three of 13 matches played since June 2023. 

Ecuador Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Alexander Domínguez, Hernán Galíndez, Moisés Ramírez
Defenders: Ángelo Preciado, Félix Torres, Piero Hincapié, Willian Pacho, José Hurtado, Jackson Porozo, Joel Ordóñez, Layan Loor, Andrés Micolta
Midfielders: Ángel Mena, Carlos Gruezo, Moisés Caicedo, Alan Franco, José Cifuentes, Jeremy Sarmiento, Joao Ortiz, Kendry Páez, Janner Corozo, Alan Minda, John Yeboah
Forwards: Enner Valencia (captain), Jordy Caicedo, Kevin Rodríguez

Félix Sánchez has a 26-man squad available for Ecuador's opening Copa America fixture in California. Captain Enner Valencia is poised to win his 87th cap. 

Injured Brighton defender Pervis Estupiñán is a notable absentee from the squad. 

Venezuela Form


Venezuela arrive in the USA winless in five matches after a goalless draw against Guatemala in their last outing in March. Despite a lack of recent victories, La Vintotinto are a tough side to beat. Venezuela remain unbeaten in 13 of 16 games played since September 2022. 

Historically considered underdogs in South American football, Venezuela has defied expectations with an outstanding start to their World Cup qualification campaign. Fernando Batista's side sit fourth in the section - two points ahead of Brazil after winning three and losing only one of their first six qualifiers. 

La Vinotino have struggled in recent Copa America appearances, though, failing to win nine of their last ten games since 2019 (W1, D5, L4). 

Venezuela Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Rafael Romo, Joel Graterol, José Contreras
Defenders: Alexander González, Jhon Chancellor, Wilker Ángel, Yordan Osorio, Nahuel Ferraresi, Miguel Navarro, Christian Makoun, Jon Aramburu
Midfielders: Tomás Rincón (captain), Darwin Machís, Yeferson Soteldo, Jefferson Savarino, Yangel Herrera, Cristian Cásseres, José Martínez, Eduard Bello, Daniel Pereira, Telasco Segovia, Kervin Andrade, Matías Lacava
Forwards: Salomón Rondón (vice-captain), Eric Ramírez, Jhonder Cádiz

Venezuelan boss Fernando Batista selected a 26-man squad for Venezuela's upcoming Copa America campaign. Montreal forward Josef Martínez is one of several experienced players cut from the initial squad selection. 

Experienced forward Salomón Rondón is set to spearhead the Vinotinto attack. 

Verdict

Venezuela are more than capable of giving Ecuador plenty to think about on Saturday.

I'm backing BTTS, while I also fancy Venezuela in the double chance market.
