Both teams are in the mid-table bottleneck. Colombia ranks fifth with 15 points, while Ecuador is third with 16 points, the same as Uruguay, which is fourth, while Paraguay is sixth with 12 and Peru seventh with 11. If they win, the yellow box would surpass in the table to the Northerners.

The extreme Juan Guillermo Cuadrado announced that the coffee growers will play “a final” against ‘Tri’, a direct rival in the fight for the four direct places in the World Cup. “It is a game of supreme importance, for us it is like a final”, Cuadrado said at a press conference on Tuesday.

The Juventus midfielder slipped that Colombia will prioritize “handling the ball” to overcome a rival who has “strong and fast” players.

The duel has an air of revenge for the 6-1 defeat suffered in Quito in November 2020, on the fourth date of the tie, which cost the then Colombian coach, the Portuguese Carlos Queiroz, his position. However, Reinaldo Rueda, the team’s coach, believes that this has already been left behind by the team.

We were fortunate, I think, to heal ourselves, if the term is worth it, in the Copa América and it was something that was managed. A very difficult game, very intense, very disputed “said the Colombian coach in a virtual press conference.

“Those are accidents that happen in all the teams in the world, national teams, what Colombia experienced in November of last year, the boys assimilated it very well, they played a very intelligent game in the Copa América against Ecuador, I don’t think there will be that precipitate , that anxiety, nor that that marker or what happened is a block to play tomorrow “added.

Rueda said that the match against Ecuador will be difficult due to the soccer characteristics of the team led by Argentine coach Gustavo Alfaro, but said he is confident that his players will perform at a high level.

“Colombia already washed mentally from that afternoon, from that result, from that game”, Rueda added, insisting that the game must be approached with a high level of demand and respect for the great potential of Ecuador.

For the Colombians, the duel will have an air of revenge: in November 2020 Ecuador defeated them 6-1 in Quito for the fourth date of the tie. A beating that cost coach Carlos Queiroz his job.

That win plunged the team into a crisis that Colombian coach Reinaldo Rueda, Queiroz’s successor, has had to overcome throughout the year.

“I think Colombia has already mentally washed that afternoon”, released Rueda at a press conference.

By dint of draws (five in the last seven games) the former coach of the Chilean team already has the team in the playoff box against a team from another continent. But if he wants to storm the direct qualifying zone he will have to be more offensive.

The duel will be closely followed by Uruguay, which has the same points as Ecuador, but a worse goal difference, and is accommodated between the two teams in fourth place in the table. The charrúa will visit Brazil on this date, leader of the tie with 28 units.

Argentina, with 22 points, is second and completes the group of direct qualifiers to Qatar at this time.
