Uruguay faces Ecuador in a match from Group C of the Copa America. This clash is going to be played in the city of Belo Horizonte on Monday. Let’s take a look in our vip soccer bets for today.
Uruguay are the most successful team in the history of Copa America. They have won the competition 15 times so far, which is an absolute record. For the last time La Celeste triumphed in 2011, when they beat Paraguay in the final.
They might not be a clear favourite to win the trophy this year, but they are one of the contenders for sure. Having players like Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani, Maxi Gomez, Diego Godin and Lucas Torreira quarantees that they are going to be a tough opponent for any other team in the competition. Uruguay are still led by the legendary manager Oscar Tabarez, who is coaching the national team since 2006.
In their last friendly game before the start of the competition, Uruguay faced Panama and enjoyed a solid 3-0 win. Celta’s striker Maxi Gomez opened the score, while Luis Suarez and Federico Valverde also put the ball in the net.
Meanwhile Ecuador are one of the two South American teams, alongside Venezuela, who have never won Copa America until now. Of course, it’d be a huge surprise if they do it now. They are not among the favourites in Group C, but they might become a trouble if some of the other teams in the group underrestimate them.
In their last friendly game before the start of Copa America, Ecuador faced Mexico in Texas. It was a terrific game between these two teams, which ended with a 3-2 win for the Mexicans. Angel Mena and Ayrton Preciado scored for the Ecuadorians, but Mexico prevailed after all.
That’s our vip soccer bets for today for the Copa America clash between Uruguay and Ecuador.
