Argentina have gotten themselves in a really tricky situation as they take on Ecuador in a game that they must win. Messi and his side failed to beat Peru at home and now have to travel away from home to get three points to keep their World Cup hopes alive.
Ecuador have been poor lately and their dreams of playing in the World Cup next summer are over. That being said, they will still be keen to win this game since there is some sort of a derby match. Ecuador will be at home and that is a huge advantage to the side since they play at a much higher altitude which makes it hard for any visiting teams.
Argentina will need to deal with that altitude and that is something that is very problematic. That being said, it is hard to see Argentina not stepping up to the challenge again and as a result I see them getting three points here. Considering the scenario of the match, I think this might be a close match.
As far as betting is concerned for this game, I think we are getting a very poor price on Argentina winning this game and as a result I think it will be best to avoid that bet. The best bet is going to be both teams to score. Argentina have been defending poorly and away from home, I see them giving up a goal. We are getting a good price on this bet and as a result it is the best option. In addition to that, the over 2.5 goals is also a good option since both teams have great attacking options.
