Football Prediction of the Day Ecuador vs Uruguay
Ecuador has a good team but will most likely rely on Fenerbahce’s striker, Valencia, to score goals.
Uruguay has a very talented team with a good base in the middle consisting of Juventus player, Bentancur, Real player, Valverde and veteran Luis Suarez in attack, who still continue to score goals for the team and the country where he plays.
Uruguay’s world-class players should prevail against Ecuador, who started the preliminaries for the 2022 World Cup on the left.
The home team managed to score at home in 9 of the last 10 matches and the guests managed to score in the last 8.
Away games so my bet will be accordingly.
