After all, after the narrow opening defeat in Argentina (0: 1), Ecuador returned on the second day of the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying 2022 with a 4: 2 win over Uruguay. The Ecuadorian national soccer team, which has participated in three of the last five World Cups, has once again declared its claim to be back in Qatar in the year after next.

Bolivia – Statistics & current form
Ten nations are fighting in the South American football association CONMEBOL for the four coveted World Cup places, with the fifth-placed in the intercontinental playoff game mostly having the upper hand in the past.
The Bolivian national soccer team has not been in the top five for 26 years. The last time “La Verde” (in German: the Greens) successfully qualified for the 1994 World Cup.
Recently not very competitive in South America
In general, Bolivia has only taken part in three World Cup finals, which is why the country is longing to finally appear on the world stage again.
- “We know what is at stake against Ecuador in terms of the rest of the World Cup qualification. We will therefore play with the knife between our teeth. ” – César Farías at Diario Pagina Siete
Before that, however, at least in South America, the gap to the other nations must be closed.
At the Copa América 2019, too, the gap was enormous again. With three defeats and 2: 9 goals, “La Verde” failed without a sound like the bottom of the group in Group A with Brazil, Venezuela and Peru.
Just one win from the last 15 international matches
“La Verde” is going into this third matchday as an outsider, which is ultimately due to the disastrous record. Bolivia has won only one of their last 15 internationals with eleven defeats. A 3-1 victory over the football dwarf Haiti in a meaningless friendly game. The last competitive win goes back to September 2017 …
The probable lineup of Bolivia:
Lamp – Valverde – Sagredo – Carrasco – Ánez – Chumacero – Wayar – Árabe – Céspedes – Martins – Miranda

Ecuador – Statistics & current form
Besides Venezuela, the Ecuadorian national soccer team is the only one of the ten nations in South America that have never won the Copa America. Only two fourth places are for “La Tri” (from “La Tricolor” for “The Three Colored”) in this competition, which is comparable to a European championship.
Nevertheless, Ecuador was one of the strongest and most constant nations in South America in the current millennium. In three of the last five CONMEBOL qualification rounds for the soccer world championships, “La Tri” reached the top five and bought the ticket for a World Cup finals.
Most recently a groundbreaking 4-2 win over Uruguay
Now the big goal is to successfully qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, for which the Ecuadorians are currently well-positioned. On the first day of the match, there was a narrow 1-0 defeat in Argentina. In the 4-2 win against Uruguay on matchday two, a direct competitor in the fight for the World Cup tickets was brought to its knees.
Gustavo Alfaro’s team is currently fifth in the South American qualification mode held as a league system. With an away win at the bottom of Bolivia, a place in the top four would be certain.
Won four of the last seven international matches
Judging by the fact that Ecuador has won four of the last seven internationals and also celebrated a clear 3-0 win over today’s opponents Bolivia during this period, we think it is very likely that Bolivia will win against Ecuador tip 2. After all, coach Gustavo Alfaro can also fall back on the much more renowned players.
While only one player in Bolivia earns his living in Europe, there are five players in the current squad in Ecuador – including Carlos Gruezo, who plays in the Bundesliga for FC Augsburg.
The probable lineup of Ecuador:
Domínguez – Arboleda – Pineida – Arreaga – Caicedo – Ibarra – Gruezo – Mena – Méndez – Estrada – Valencia
