Ecuador vs Japan Preview, Possible Lineups & Predictions

Let us predict and analyze the match between Ecuador vs Japan in the group stage of Copa America 2019.

Ecuador's spirit was extremely depressed when this team was officially removed from the Copa America 2019 despite the group stage has not ended yet. Therefore, they will be very difficult to cause difficulties for Japan in the upcoming match.

Ecuador football comes to 2019 Copa America with very high determination to make a surprise, even if they have to fall into the group which is not easy with the participation of Uruguay, Chile and Japan. However, every determination soon collapsed after the last two matches.

Mr. Gómez's team lost to Chile 1-2, failed 4 goals against Uruguay. That makes the team currently unable to score any points, besides their goal difference stands at -5.

It can be said that Ecuador cannot show any bright spots. They only scored 1 goal and conceded 6 times. A team that once caused great difficulties for the big boys disappeared in Ecuador now.

After more than a decade, the assessments from experts for the two teams have also changed. At the latest confrontation in 2006, Japan in the upper position had a 1-0 victory.

If you look at the past performance of Japan before Uruguay, no one thinks they are guests at Copa America 2019.

In that match, both times Japan took the lead and Uruguay struggled to get 1 point. With 1 point, Japan football will still have a chance to go on if they win this match against Ecuador because the 2 best-placed third-place teams still go on. That's why Japan is so much expected in the final match of this group stage.

Whereas Ecuador is currently playing in a natural way that is not very positively and the result for them is 2 consecutive failures. The opportunity for this team is almost no longer available.

Possible lineups of Ecuador vs Japan

Ecuador: Dominguez, Velasco, Ibarra Mina, Arboleda, Ramirez, Mendez, Gruezo, Orejuela, Mena, Valencia, Ibarra.

Japan: Kawashima, Itakura, Tomiyasu, Ueda, Iwata, Sugioka, Nakajima, Shibasaki, Miyoshi, Abe, Okazaki.

Ecuador vs Japan score predictions: 1-2
