Brazil will start their Coppa America campaign against Ecuador in what should be a great game of football. The Brazilians are obviously the big name in this game but their opponents are also of an amazing standard so I am looking forward to this game.
This game is likely to determine which team will finish first and which team will finish second in this group. As a result, both teams will give it their all. Brazil will start with a team that is not at full strength and with the likes of Neymar out of this tournament it will be important for the likes of Hulk and co to step up. That being said this will not be an easy game for them since their opponents are solid.
Ecuador will feel as if this is their best chance of pulling off a win and they can do that by ensuring there are solid at the back. Brazil will concede goals and if Ecuador can manage to prevent a Brazil side that has attacking resources missing, they are in with a very good chance.
As far as betting on this match, I like the price we are getting on Ecuador. The likes of Valencia are world class and against a Brazil side that is missing Neymar and Thiago Silva, I am very surprise how big of an underdog Ecuador is. I think taking a double chance with a draw as well is probably a safer bet but betting on an outright Ecuador win has a lot of value to it as well. Enner Valencia to score first is also a good bet if you are looking at goal scorers since he is a quality player and Brazil have a habit of conceding early goals.
