Ecuador will take on Peru in the Group B match of Copa America 2021 on 23rd June/ 24th June (India), at Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico. Ecuador and Peru will each play their last game of the group stage in an attempt to secure one of the qualification positions.
Ecuador vs Peru Team Preview
Ecuador got off to a shaky start, as they were barely beaten by Colombia on the first day. Despite being the superior team for the duration of the game and having opportunities to score, they were unable to rebound against Colombia.
They were subsequently held to a 2-2 tie in their most recent match against Venezuela, another team vying for qualifying slots. Ecuador still have a lot of work to do if they want to enter the quarter-finals, but they are just one point behind Venezuela and two points behind Peru, so a win would briefly put them in third position.
Peru enters the contest on a high note after a stunning win against Colombia in their previous group game. Peru’s first points of the tournament came against Colombia after a 4-0 humiliation at the hands of host country Brazil in their first encounter.
Ricardo Gareca will be happy with his team’s tenacity after rapidly rebounding from that terrible setback, as they climbed into a strong position to earn one of the top four positions, and they can seal their place in the quarter-finals with a win over Ecuador.
ECU vs PER: Head to Head
Ecuador and Peru have faced each other in 19 matches with Ecuador having a narrow edge winning eight games to Peru’s five victories. They recently encountered last month with Peru crushing Ecuador 2-1.
