Ecuador football team will be taking on Bolivia in the 7th match of Copa America 2015 on 15 June at Estadio Elias Figueroa Brander. Bolivia earned one point in their first match of tournament as they played draw against Mexico whereas Ecuador lost inaugural game of 44th Copa America against hosts Chile.
Bolivian side always struggles against Gustavo Quinteros’ Ecuador. In their last 10 meetings Bolivia failed to win single game against Ecuador and in their last meet was in a friendly match in September, 2014 when Ecuador defeated Bolivia by 4-0.
So Ecuador will be confident against Bolivia but their loss in the very first match of tournament didn’t show that team is in great form. The fighting spirit was missing a bit. Bolivia coach is also looking to take advantage of this and after the draw against Mexico he said that team is working well and are confident to face Ecuador and Chile in next matches of Copa America.
Bolivia coach Mauricio Soria said, “We need to put an emphasis on our recovery as we put in a strong, physical effort. We will face Ecuador and (final opponents) Chile with courage.”
If Bolivia success to beat Ecuador on 15 June’s match, it will be a big setback of Ecuador as they will almost out from the competition’s knockout stage.
