Last friendly of the year for both teams. The current call of Ecuador does not have many elements of experience, at least in defense none exceeds the 5 international matches. After the Copa América they played 4 friendlies, winning victories over Peru (1-0), Bolivia (3-0) and the most recent against Trinidad and Tobago (3-0); however against a higher level rival like Argentina they were thrashed 6-1. Enner Valencia and Ángel Mena, attackers who have stood out in Mexican football, are their goal cards.
On the other hand, Colombia comes from beating Peru by the minimum difference with a goal from Alfredo Morelos in time of discount. Thus those led by the Portuguese Carlos Queiroz broke a streak of 5 matches without winning in which he could not score in 4. His worst result in that period was the 3-0 that Algeria gave him in October. Mind you, you won’t have James Rodriguez, Radamel Falcao, Juan Quintero or Duván Zapata.

-7 of his last 8 direct matches had less than 2.5 goals.
-Enner Valencia comes from scoring a double in the 3-0 over Trinidad and Tobago.
