Colombia vs Ecuador Prediction & Betting Tips

Copa America Betting Tips: Colombia play Ecuador at Arena Pantanal on Monday 14 June, Kick-off: 03:00. Read on for our free match preview and prediction for this football fixture.

Colombia are the third favourites to win the 2021 Copa America tournament, with La Tricolor having previously looked ahead to this tournament with manager Carlos Queiroz, although Reinaldo Rueda is now tasked with steering the team to the business end of the competition.

However, they have a difficult opening match against Ecuador at the Arena Pantanal in Cuiabá, with their opponents having bloodied the noses of a number of leading CONMEBOL teams and our betting tip is for the underdogs to land a positive result.

Colombia vs Ecuador Preview

Put quite simply, Colombia look too short when it comes to their betting odds to claim a victory in this tournament, with James Rodriguez nowhere to be seen in this squad and there is also the absence of Alfredo Morelos, with the current set-up not particularly blessed with quality.

Atalanta attacking pair Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel could offer some flair after successful domestic campaigns for La Dea, with Juan Cuadrado and Wilmar Barrios the experienced campaigners although there are plenty of squad members who don’t play domestic football at a high level.

Expert Colombia vs Ecuador Betting Tips

Our prediction is that Ecuador will get at least a point from this Copa America opener and it’s possible that this team will go deeper than their outright betting odds will suggest. Gustavo Alfaro’s side have the exciting Michael Estrada in attack and this could be a breakthrough tournament for the Toluca forward.

Although El Tri recently lost 2-0 in a friendly clash against Brazil, there was other great success in World Cup qualification, including a 6-1 demolition of Colombia and also a 4-2 win over Uruguay to imply that they are a dangerous attacking unit.

Ecuador are therefore riding high in the World Cup qualifying table and we’re taking them to secure a positive result on the Asian Handicap market.

BETTING PREDICTION 2 Asian Handicap +0.5 @ 2.00
