Can Uruguay start with a threesome in the Copa? Read below our full prediction Uruguay vs Ecuador
The Copa America will be held for the 45th time this year. Host of the continental championships of South America is Brazil. The game is played in three groups of four, of which the first two qualify directly for the quarter-finals. In addition, the two best group thirds continue one lap. The favorites for this year’s title come from Brazil and Argentina. In addition to these two major football nations, the Uruguayans are also possible title candidates traded. La Celeste meet in the opening match of Group C on the team from Ecuador. Can the team of coach Oscar Tabarez directly set an exclamation mark and live up to his role as a favorite?
Today’s Betting Prediction Uruguay vs Ecuador
The 15-time Copa America winner arrives with his two superstars Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani and can rightfully be counted among the contenders for the title. Whether they can prevail against the strong Brazilians and Argentines remains to be seen. In addition to Ecuador, Chile and Japan are waiting in the group stage as further opponents, so that under normal circumstances, the first place should go to the sky blue. The Ecuadorians are certainly only an outsider chance and a victory against the Tabarez-Eleven would be a huge surprise. In the game Uruguay vs Ecuador odds of 1.80 are paid for a success of the Uruguayans.
Uruguay – Statistics & Current Form
If you believe the bookmakers, the Uruguayans (odds 6.00) are the co-favorites for this year’s title behind the hosts from Brazil (odds 2.10) and Argentiniern (odds 4.50). In Group C, however, the sky blue must prevail initially against the competition from Chile, Japan and Ecuador. The prelude is against La Tricolor. An opponent who can be uncomfortable to play, but still should not be a stumbling block for the team around captain Diego Godin.
Uruguay is the team that has participated most frequently in Copa America with 43 participations. With fifteen successes, no other country could win the title more often. The last triumph was celebrated in 2011. In the final Paraguay was defeated 3-0. Are La Celeste strong enough this year to be a real competitor for the favored hosts? At least the form seems to be right on time for the tournament. The three completed games this year could all be won. At the China Cup in March, the South Americans won by two sovereign success the tournament victory. With Uzbekistan (3: 0) and Thailand (4: 0), however, not just heavyweights of international football were defeated. In the final preparation game before the Copa America Panama was finally defeated 3-0. This means that the sky blue is still without a goal this year.
The squad, with the coach Oscar Tabarez starts in the tournament, can be seen. In the offensive, the experienced coach with Luis Suarez (Barcelona) and Edinson Cavani (Paris) has two top-class strikers in his ranks. The safe defense is organized by captain Godin and Gimenez, both of whom earn their money at Atletico Madrid. In the game Uruguay vs Ecuador, the tip for a game in which over 2.5 goals are scored, is rewarded with odds of 2.40. We expect Tabarez’s team to qualify for the quarter-finals as group winners.
The sky blue are currently the number six in the FIFA world ranking and were able to win the World Cup title in 1930 and 1950. At the World Cup last year in Russia, the team of Coach Tabarez, who sits on the bench of the team from the east coast of South America since 2006, separated with 0-2 in the quarterfinals against France. We definitely trust the Uruguayans to reach the semi-finals this year at the Copa.
Best goalscorers in the national team:
🥇 Luis Suarez 55 goals
🥈 Edinson Cavani 46 goals
Expected formation of Uruguay:
↳ Muslera – Laxalt, Gimenez, Godin, Caceres – Lodeiro, Bentancur, de Arrascaeta, Nandez – Suarez, Cavani

Ecuador – Statistics & Current Form
Ecuador has been trained by Hernan Dario Gomez since 2018. He should try to make the team again internationally competitive. So far, however, success has been limited. Under his direction so far four games have been held and the balance is very sobering. Against Honduras (0-0) and Venezuela (1-1) La Tricolor did not get beyond a point division. In Orlando, the Ecuadorians were also the United States 0-1. In the final preparatory game before the Copa America set it also a 2: 3 defeat against the Mexicans. So head coach Gomez is still waiting for the first threesome with his team.
The Dreifarbigen can show so far no large international successes. Three times they managed to qualify for a World Cup. In South Korea and Brazil in each case after the preliminary round was over, 2006 in Germany La Tri could reach at least the round of 16. At Copa America, the best placement so far has been twice the fourth place. This always succeeded when the tournament was carried out in their own country, which is again planned for the year 2024. Will the fans have to wait until then to cheer their team on a successful tournament? At least this year, they will have a hard time. Both the first opponent Uruguay, as well as the Chileans, we appreciate more. For the game Uruguay against Ecuador we meet the prediction that there will not be much to get for the yellow-blue-reds.
The squad of Ecuadorians is composed of players who are mostly unknown in Europe. The most famous player in their ranks is Antonio Valencia, who has been tying football boots for Manchester United for the past ten years. With 33 years of international experience, he is expected to play an important role in the planning of Coach Gomez. Best scorer of the men from the west coast is Enner Valencia. The striker from Tigres UANL (Mexico) has been in the national team 48 times. He also spent several years on the British Isle playing for West Ham United and Everton FC.
We’ll see if La Tricolor can turn out to be an unpleasant opponent in their 29th appearance at Copa America, but assume they will qualify as one of the top two runners-up for the next round.
Best goalscorers in the national team:
🥇 Enner Valencia 48 goals
Expected formation of Ecuador:
↳ Banguera – Mina, Arboleda, Quintero, Caicedo – Gruezo, A. Valencia, Intriago, Mendez – Ibarra, E. Valencia
Last matches from Ecuador:

Uruguay vs Ecuador Direct Comparison
The duel between these two teams has already been held 38 times. In the overall balance, the sky blue clearly have the nose ahead. So far they have recorded 26 victories on their credit side. The Ecuadorians, however, are only six achievements. As often as the teams parted with a draw. The last games took place in qualifying for the World Cup in Russia. The respective hosts won the match 2-1. The team of coach Tabarez retained in only one of the recent four duels the upper hand. But we firmly believe that his team will be successful in Copa America. Therefore, in the game of Uruguay against Ecuador, we predict that the three points will go to the sky blue of the east coast of South America.
Uruguay vs Ecuador Best Betting Prediction Explained
Oscar Tabarez and his team are allowed to start confidently in the tournament. With three sovereign wins and without a goal, the internationals were successfully contested this year. Due to the strong squad, the sky blue favorites are in the first game of Group C. In the game Uruguay against Ecuador odds of 1.80 are offered for a tip on the Celeste. The squad has a good mix of experienced players like Muslera, Suarez and Cavani and young hotspurters like Maxi Gomez and Giovanni Gonzalez. The tri-color will have to stretch properly if they want to collect something countable in this game.
Key Facts – Uruguay vs Ecuador tips
⭐️ Uruguay have won the last three games
⭐️ Ecuador could not celebrate a single victory this year
⭐️ Uruguay conceded 2019 so far no goal
We do not believe that coach Hernan Gomez’s team will be strong enough to cause problems for the Uruguayans. In the game Uruguay vs Ecuador we would advise against a hint on the Tricolor, although the odds of 5.80 seem very tempting. Our recommendation is clearly in the direction of a bet on the 15-time title holder! The stable defense and the very strong offensive speak clearly in favor of the sky blue. The Ecuadorians will probably fight with Chile for the second group place, where we would also provide them here with the worse cards.
