Ecuador v Uruguay Live

Ecuador are currently in fourth place with 23 points from 16 games. In fifth place, just one point behind, are Diego Maradona’s Argentina. Uruguay and Venezuela are tied on 21 points, while Colombia have 20 points.
In the previous round, Ecuador beat Bolivia 3-1 in La Paz. Edison Mendez gave the visitors the lead in the fourth minute. Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia doubled it shortly after the interval, and Christian Benitez completed the win with his 66th minute goal. La Tri have been strong at home in the qualifiers, with only one defeat in eight fixtures.
Uruguay, on the other hand, have won just one game away from home in the qualifiers. That was against Colombia last September. To add to their poor away form is the problem of altitude in Quito. How Uruguay will acclimatize to the conditions will have a big say in whether they’ll watch next season’s World Cup from home or not.
In their last qualifier, Uruguay ran out 3-1 winners at home against Colombia. Ajax Amsterdam skipper Luis Suarez’s early strike was cancelled out by Colombia’s Jackson Martinez, but Andres Scotti and Sebastien Eguren scored late in the game to give the Sky Blues three crucial points.
Ecuador are away at Chile in their final qualifier, while Uruguay will host Argentina. This is therefore a very important game for both teams, and the tickets to this clash were already sold out by mid September. The two teams played out a goalless draw in Montevideo in September 2008.
