Chile vs Ecuador Prediction

The two sides are in almost identical form and will each fancy their chances of getting a win here. Both teams are also in the running to finish as the 'best of the rest' after Brazil and Argentina and both have enough quality to get on the scoresheet.

Chile might be slight favorites and have home advantage, but Ecuador have what it takes to leave Santiago with something. We are predicting the two teams to cancel each other out in a low-scoring draw.

Prediction: Chile 1-1 Ecuador
