Uruguay vs Ecuador, Sunday’s match for the 1st match day of the Copa América, Group C, at the Estádio Mineirão, in Minas Gerais.
It is at the Estadio Governador Magalhães Pinto that Uruguay will play against Ecuador, the Celestes come from three games without losing, and are likely to increase this series, and opt for an offensive game style against the Yellows.
Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez are the main stars of the team, but Luis Suárez comes from a knee surgery, which raises the question whether or not he is in perfect physical condition.
In fact, he has already participated in a friendly game against the Panama team. Uruguay beat Panama 3-0 at home with goals from Maxi Gomez, Luis Suarez and Federico Valverde.
The coach who has guided the team for a long time, Oscar Tabarez has already led Uruguay to the fame of the Copa América in 2011, with great players like Diego Godin, Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Lucas Torreira, Maxi Gomez and others. This training is a mix of talent and experience, which makes a dangerous combination for any opponent.
Ecuadorians intend to end their negative series of four games without wins, but in this match against Uruguay, I fear it will be very difficult to achieve.
The Ecuador squad began their preparations for the Copa América reasonably well and finished in a declining phase.
When Hernan Gomez started guiding the team, he had four wins, one draw and one defeat, but in 2019, when he expected an evolution, it was the opposite, with the team making two draws and two defeats.
In their last game of preparation, Ecuador was defeated 3-2 by Mexico. This country only participated in three competitions of the FIFA World Cup, and their best performance in the race was fourth place in 1959, almost sixty years ago.
Uruguay’s biggest doubt for this game is about the physical ability of their offensive duo, Suarez, and Cavani whether they are in the best shape or not. However, this is a set with many solutions, and therefore has the ability to reach out to win the Ecuadorians.
