In the first round of the Copa America group stage, Ecuador and Venezuela will face off at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara. Here is the expert team's prediction from Dailysports.

Ecuador

Felix Sanchez Bas's team commenced the new World Cup 2026 qualification cycle with confidence. Although the "Tricolor" started with a loss to the world champions Argentina, they then embarked on a successful streak, securing victories over Uruguay (2-1), Bolivia (2-1), and Chile (1-0), and drawing with Colombia (0-0) and Venezuela (0-0).

After six rounds, Ecuador occupies the fifth position in the standings with 8 points, despite a three-point deduction. This year, their performances have been less stellar. They lost to stronger teams (0-2 to Italy, 0-1 to Argentina) but convincingly defeated weaker opponents (2-0 against Guatemala, 3-1 against Bolivia).

Venezuela

Fernando Batista's team is typically regarded as one of the underdogs in South American football. However, they performed commendably in the early stages of the new World Cup 2026 qualifiers. Following a narrow 0-1 defeat to Colombia in the opening round, the underdogs managed to secure points against Brazil (1-1), defeat Paraguay (1-0) and Chile (3-0), and draw with Ecuador (0-0) and Peru (1-1).

After six rounds, the "Vinotinto" unexpectedly holds the fourth place in the South American qualifiers, surpassing Chile by 4 points. In preparation for the Copa America, the team played three friendly matches with little distinction. In mid-December 2023, Venezuela once again lost to Colombia (0-1), followed by a spring defeat to Italy (1-2) and a draw with Guatemala (0-0).

Interesting facts about the match and head-to-head history

  • Four out of the last six encounters between these teams ended in a draw.
  • In the last 10 matches, Ecuador achieved four victories, losing to Venezuela only once.
  • The "Both teams to score" bet did not work in the last two matches, although both teams scored in the preceding four encounters.

Ecuador vs Venezuela Prediction

Ecuador is understandably the favorite in this match. The odds for a "Tricolor" victory are around 1.95. This is expected, as Venezuela excels at home but faces challenges on neutral grounds. Our bet is on "Ecuador to win."
