VEN vs ECU: Team Preview
Last time around, Venezuela defeated Colombia and earned a valuable point. Despite having a large number of absentees due to positive coronavirus tests, Venezuela forced one of the favorites to advance out of the group to a goalless draw as they kept their opponents out for the whole of the match.
After a poor start to the tournament, in which they were handily defeated 3-0 by host nation Brazil, they made a remarkable recovery and a win against Ecuador see them progress towards the next stage.
Ecuador will attempt to collect their first points of the tournament in order to overtake Venezuela and secure a spot in the last eight. Ecuador were defeated by Colombia in the first round of encounters in their lone game of the tournament thus far.
A win over Venezuela would vault them ahead of their opponents and significantly enhance their qualifying chances since four of the five teams in the group will advance.
Venezuela vs Ecuador: Head to Head
Venezuela and Ecuador have met on 27 occasions with Ecuador dominating the records with 13 wins to Bolivia’s nine victories. They last encountered in 2019 with the game ending in a 1-1 draw.
