Uruguay, one of the favorites to win the 2019 Copa America, kickstart their campaign today against Ecuador, a team with one of the worst records in the tournament. In the most recent tournament, Uruguay had a very good campaign at the world cup, taking out Ronaldo’s Portugal in Round of 16, but couldn’t make it through eventual champions, France.

Ecuador haven’t won a single game this year (D2, L2). They didn’t perform well in the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers either finishing just above Bolivia and Venezuela, the two worst teams in the confederation. They lost their last match to Mexico (3-2) despite equalizing on twice.
Talent-wise, it’s not even a contest, The strike partnership of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez trumps anything Ecuador can muster without difficulty.
Uruguay has not lost to Ecuador in 4 years. Uruguay finished second in the WC qualifiers, Ecuador didn’t qualify. Uruguay won their last three games without conceding any goal, Ecuador is win-less in last four fixtures failing to score in two of them. Uruguay definitely has all 3 points in the bag.
