Ecuador vs Chile (By: Dajkula)
Many surprises happening in this Copa but I hope this won`t be another one. Ecuador will try to catch the first 3 points facing Chile in the second round. They were demolished by Uruguay in match one and they lost by 4:0. Uruguay dominated from the start and it probably helped that Quinteros got a red card in the 24`th minute. The mood in the Ecuador team has been bad for a long time it seems and the coach Hernan Gomez is fed up of hearing it. The press is on his neck and he might just resign any moment now. It is not the optimal conditions to prepare the team for the crucial match. Ecuador doesn`t know about winning in the last 5 matches and they lost 3 of those. They also scored in 2 of those 5 matches.
Ecuador knows how to win against Chile but that mostly happens in Ecuador. On neutral ground, the teams played 6 times and Chile won 5 of those.
Chile started the Copa brightly and they needed it. There was criticism about the coaching ability of Rueda but the team delivered. They showed how seriously they approach this competition and went full blast against the Japanese. And the Japanese are no pushovers. They created great chances and Chile can be happy they haven`t conceded 2 or 3 goals. Chile was rampant going forward and reminded us how good they can be at creating pressure. I can see them going far here, especially with the lineup they have. Sanchez has awoken and Vargas is again showing his killer instinct for the national team.
I fancy Chile to win another one in Brazil.
