  • Both teams enter this match with three points from the first two rounds.

Mexico preview: Can they avoid early exit?

While this Mexico's Copa America squad had high ambitions coming into the tournament and while things have gone well after a narrow win over Jamaica in the first round of the group stages, their loss to Venezuela in the last round puts Mexico in a precarious situation. Ahead of the last matchday, Mexico need to beat Ecuador or they will the competitions earlier that they expected.

On top of that, the team's captain Edson Alvarez already missed one match and is bound to miss this game as well.

Predicted lineup: Gonzalez (GK), Sanchez, Montes, Vasquez, Arteaga, Romo, Chavez, Vega, Pineda, Quinones & Gimenez

Ecuador preview: One draw away from the next stage

After their loss in the first round to Venezuela, Ecuador turned things around with a confident win over Jamaica in the second round and thanks to a better goal difference than Mexico, they only need a draw in the last round to get out of the group.

On top of that, Ecuador can have Enner Valencia back after he had to sit out the last match through suspension.

Predicted lineup: Dominguez (GK), Preciado, Torres, Pacho, Hincapie, Franco, Caicedo, Yeboah, Paez, Sarmiento & Valencia

Player to watch: Santiago Gimenez

One of the reasons for Mexico's struggles at Copa America so far has been the lack of goals and the man to rectify this is Gimenez, who is Mexico's top striker at the moment.

Gimenez has been in great form this season

With 23 goals in the Dutch Eredivisie for Feyenoord this season, Gimenez came into Copa America with a lot of confidence, but he failed to translate his club form to international football. Will that change against Ecuador, in Mexico's crucial game of the group stages?
