Mexico vs Ecuador lineups, odds, and where to watch

Mexico and Ecuador are going to battle it out on the 1st day of July at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Neither side can afford to lose this, so we should see an interesting game between the two teams. In our article, you’ll familiarize yourselves with the key Mexico vs Ecuador odds, as well as interesting statistics concerning this game.

Mexico vs Ecuador Lineups

There’s good news for both managers – they will be able to count on all of their key players for the clash at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Let’s see which players the two managers will rely on to win some much-needed points this week.

Mexico lineup – injuries, suspensions, and other news

Edson Avarez, Luis Chavez, and Carlos Rodriguez are all fit and ready for action against Ecuador. Coach Jaime Lozano definitely has the defensive midfielder position covered, as these players bring a lot of class to the center of the pitch.

Mexico predicted lineup: Gonzalez (GK), Reyes, Arteaga, Alvarez, Vasquez, Romo, Rodriguez, Vega, Chavez, Huerta, Gimenez & Antuna

Player to watch: Alexis Vega

We think coach Lozano will opt to give Vega a chance among the starters, as he really need a more creative player dictating the play in the attack. Vega had a nice season with Deportivo Toluca, so we expect to see more of him against Ecuador this week.

Ecuador lineup – injuries, suspensions, and other news

Coach Felix Bas is undoubtedly happy to have Caicedo and Pacho at his disposal. The two big stars are ready to take on the Mexico challenge, and seeing as they are both defensive-oriented players, we believe it will be difficult for the Aztecs to score this week.

Ecuador predicted lineup: Dominguez (GK), Preciado, Torres, Pacho, Hincapie, Franco, M. Caicedo, Sarmiento, Paez, Yeboah & Valencia

Player to watch: Moises Caicedo

Without a doubt, Caicedo is the most important player for the symbolic visitors. Chelsea’s superstar has a market tag of €75m on his head, which makes him the most expensive player on the pitch at the University of Phoenix Stadium.
