Ecuador vs Argentina – 2018 World Cup Qualification: Next to a panic attack, Argentina will travel to Quito to face Ecuador…
Argentina haven’t been able to win lately and they are putting their participation on the next World Cup in jeopardy. The last deception was against Peru.
Not even playing at home, not even having chosen La Bombonera to put pressure on the Peruvians, not even Messi either. None of that helped the Argentinians overcome the Peruvian squad.
The result was even worse because Chile and Paraguay both won.
And Peru was able to keep their advantage with the draw in Buenos Aires. With this result, Argentina has dropped to 6th place with 24 points gained.
Outside of the qualification zone for the World Cup and even outside of the play-off spots. They are on a streak of 4 matches without a single win.

Ecuador vs Argentina – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Ecuador saw their dreams of attending another World Cup vanish on the last round.
Their loss against Chile sealed their fate, since they have 20 points at the moment and no longer have mathematical chances of reaching the play-off.
Ecuador had an amazing start on this qualification stage and were even on the lead at some point. But since then, the team was in free-fall and now they are only 8th ahead of Bolivia and Venezuela.
This is a tough match. Even with Ecuador eliminated already. The rivalry should set the tone here but Argentina has been playing very poorly and these odds are misadjusted at the moment.
Besides that, there is Quito’s altitude which is also an extra help for the Ecuadorians. I don’t see them losing here, and if they do, they won’t get battered.
