Match Preview & Team News
Colombians have been labelled as favorites to earn three points, currently at 5/6 rate. They have performed really good versus Argentina last weekend, holding Gauchos to a 2-2 draw. That point helped them climb to 5th place having eight points total. The worst game happened exactly against Ecuador a couple of months ago when Colombia got humiliated 1-6 FT. Is it time for payback? Ecuador suffered two painful defeats in the last ten days to Brazil and Peru, so anything is possible really. Read on our Copa America betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
It is really hard to say what happened with Colombians in the most recent head to head encounter versus Ecuador. They conceded four goals in the first half, total of six in ninety minutes. Michael Estrada was man of the match with one goal and one assist. This player had a massive impact on Ecuador’s standings so far, scoring three goals in six games. These two squads are topping South American charts with 4.00 goals scored per game on average. Besides abovementioned draw versus Argentina, Colombians had a flash appearance and claimed three easy points in Lima versus Peru. They won the game 3-0. Biggest stars are coming from Atalanta – attacking duo Muriel-Zapata. Head manager is popular Reinaldo Rueda, so they definitely have potential and experience to contest the title.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
It’s a clash of two highest scoring teams in South American qualifiers, so Over 2.5 goals at high 13/10 rate seems like a good value bet.
We are picking Colombia to claim all three points in their Copa America opener at 5/6 odds. They have recovered from poor form in late 2020 and won four points in last two meetings. Ecuador on the other hand are declining.
