Bolivia vs Ecuador by Snake
Bolivia are coming to this friendly with a lot of missings. First of all the football federation in Bolivia appointed the current coach of Bolivar - Xabier Azkargorta to take charge in the games against Ecuador and Mexico.
Second - a lot of first team players will miss this game for Bolivia - Cruzeiro striker Marcelo Moreno , who refused the invantaion, cuz he wanted to focus in the national championship in Brazil.
Another striker - Juan Carlos Acre (Bolivar striker) will miss the game due to injury.
Defenders of U.Sucre - Ballivian and Loras were called , but the club from La Paz stated that they can't let them go due to preparations for the upcoming Copa Sudamericana match against Cesar Vallejo, so both will miss the game.
Defender Luis Gutierrez from Bolivar also declined the invatation , as he stated that he has some personall issues.
So 5 very important players will miss the game for Bolivia. Also with the fact that the last victory for Bolivia was in early 2013 , when they defeated HAITI in a friendly game.
Ecuador played well in the World Cup and despite finishing 3-rd in the group , the team managed to draw 0:0 against France and defeat Honduras with 1:2, but that was still not enough.
Ecuador will also miss 3 of their best players - Antonio Valencia , Jefferson Montero and Felipe Caicedo will remain in their clubs. But still , they have players capable of replacing them , as most of the national players , compete in strong championships like Mexico , MLS and so on. Also West Ham striker Valencia is expected to start from the begining.
From nearly 20 games recored in the history , Bolivia have only 2 victories over Ecuador in official games, 8 draws and 10 victories for Ecuador.
Still you can go without the DNB and play clear victory for Ecuador with odds around 2.00. I think fair odds should be 1.75-1.80 so still some value. I choose to back myself in case of a draw. Good Luck!
