Ecuador host Colombia in a FIFA World Cup qualification match in Quito on Tuesday. Colombia were thrashed 3-0 on Friday and will be missing two key players for their trip to Ecuador.

Ecuador Form

Ecuador failed to progress from their group at the 2019 Copa America as they lost 4-0 to Uruguay and 2-1 to Chile before a 1-1 draw with Japan.

They won three and lost two of their subsequent friendlies before a return to competitive action in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

In their first qualification match, they lost 1-0 away to Argentina before a superb 4-2 win against Uruguay in which they led 4-0 after 75 minutes.

In their last match, they won 3-2 in Bolivia as Beder Caicedo and Angel Mena scored before a late Carlos Gruezo penalty sealed victory.

Ecuador Team News

Ecuador captain and top striker Enner Valencia missed the win in Bolivia with illness and is a doubt to face Colombia. He has 31 goals in 56 caps and is his side’s key man.

Moises Caicedo in central midfield is another key player and he contributed two assists against Bolivia.

Veteran midfielder Christian Noboa is missing for this game and his experience with 76 caps will be a loss.

Ecuador Squad

Goalkeepers: Alexander Domínguez, Pedro Ortiz, Hernan Galindez

Defenders: Robert Arboleda, Xavier Arreaga, Mario Pineida, Beder Caicedo, Diego Palacios, Ángelo Preciado, Pervis Estupiñán, Felix Torres, Moisés Corozo, Erick Ferigra, Pedro Perlaza

Midfielders: Renato Ibarra, Carlos Gruezo, Angel Mena, Jhegson Mendez, Junior Sornoza, Alan Franco, Gonzalo Plata, Jhojan Julio, Moises Caicedo, José Cifuentes, Joao Rojas, Adolfo Munoz

Forwards: Enner Valencia, Michael Estrada, Leonardo Campana, Carlos Garces

Colombia Form

Colombia won all of their group matches and drew 0-0 in the quarter final before being knocked out of the 2019 Copa America.

Since their return to competition action in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers they have beaten Venezuela 3-0 at home before a 2-2 draw on their travels against Chile.

In their last match, they were thrashed 3-0 at home by Uruguay in a game where Everton’s Yerry Mina was red carded late on.

Colombia Team News

Vastly experienced goalkeeper David Ospina shook off an injury to play against Uruguay and should be fit for this game. Midfielder James Rodriguez was also fit for that game after an injury at club level.

Yerry Mina is suspended for this match after being sent off against Uruguay so the defence is weaker. Radamel Falcao is out injured in attack and his pedigree with 35 goals for his country will be missed.

Colombia Squad

Goalkeepers: David Ospina, Camilo Vargas, Alvaro Montero

Defenders: Luis Manuel Orejuela, Daniel Munoz, Yerry Mina, Davinson Sanchez, Jeison Murillo, Jhon Lucumi, William Tesillo, Frank Fabra, Johan Mojica

Midfielders: Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, Matheus Uribe, Jorman Campuzano, Wilmar Barrios, Jefferson Lerma, Edwin Cardona, James Rodriguez.

Forwards: Alfredo Morelos, Luis Suarez, Duvan Zapata, Luis Muriel, Luis Diaz.

Ecuador vs Colombia Match Up

Ecuador look like a reinvigorated side since Gustavo Alfaro arrived as the coach and took the attacking shackles off his side. Colombia are missing two important players and are defending poorly so could struggle at the back.
