This CONMEBOL conference matchup features the top team in the standings against a Colombian team trying to move up into the top four or five teams. Team Colombia will come in to this game off a recent 3-2 win over Bolivia and will try to build upon that momentum. Can James Rodriguez help propel his squad to another needed victory? The 2018 World Cup qualifying game live streaming and televised coverage comes via beIN Sports.
According to Goal.com in their March 27, it was the inspired play of team leader James Rodriguez last Thursday that helped Colombia grab a hard-fought 3-2 win against Bolivia. Rodriguez scored the first goal and provided the second for Carlos Bacca. The 2014 World Cup Golden Boot winner appears ready to take charge while ignoring the critics. James told the media, “What people comment outside of the game does not matter to me I just try to work hard and play well and help so that we can all win. I always want to win, I always want to help the team.” He’ll try to continue the winning ways against conference standings leader Ecuador.
Most recently, Ecuador ended in a draw 2-2 against Paraguay back on March 24 at Estadio Olympic Atahualpa in Quito. Enner Valencia and Angel Mena scored the two goals for their side, with Mena’s coming late to help tie after Dario Lezcano scored twice for his team. As of right now, Team Paraguay leads all teams in the CONMEBOL standings with four wins, a draw and no losses, as well as 13 total points and a goal differential of +7. Colombia currently has a 2-1-2 record and just seven points with a -1 goals differential. A big win today would certainly boost them up into the top four or five teams, if even for a short while as more qualifying matchups arrive tonight.
The Colombian team finds themselves as the favorites here with a moneyline price of -150 at various sports books. Ecuador is at +420 to +450 as the underdog at various books, with a draw priced at +270 to +280. Today’s over/under goals total is at 2-1/2 goals for the game. On the Vegas Insider future odds list, Colombia currently has 13 to 1 odds to win the 2016 Copa America, while Ecuador is a few spots below them with 33 to 1 odds to win it.
