Ecuador VS Peru LIVE Football Match Score June 24/6/2021
Ecuador will square off against Peru on Wednesday at the Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico in Copa America 2021 action. Ecuador are bottom of Group B with just one point from two matches played. They are yet to register a win and have a goal difference of -1. They played out a 2-2 draw against Venezuela in their last game, conceding two points late in the game as Ronald Hernandez scored an injury-time equalizer for La Vinotinto.
On the other hand, Peru are third in the same group. La Blanquirroja have three points from two matches as a result of one win and a loss. They won their most recent fixture in the competition, inflicting a 2-1 loss upon the Colombians. Miguel Borja’s penalty and Yerry Mina’s own goal were enough for Ricardo Gareca’s side to secure three points.
Despite being the better side for the majority of game and having chances to find the net, they were ultimately unable to bounce back after Edwin Cardona put Colombia ahead on the stroke of half time, falling to the bottom of the group as a result.
They were then held to a somewhat disappointing 2-2 draw in their last outing, as they took on Venezuela, the other side in intense competition for qualification spots.
Gustavo Alfaro’s men took the lead on two separate occasions through Ayrton Preciado and Gonzalo Plata, but Edson Castillo levelled the game at 1-1 early in the second half before Ronald Hernandez snatched a point for Venezuela with a 91st-minute equaliser, keeping them one point above Ecuador.
La Tricolor now have plenty of work to do if they are to make it to the quarter-finals, although they do remain just one point behind Venezuela and two points behind Peru, meaning a win on Wednesday would see them not only leapfrog their opponents, but also temporarily move into third place going into the final gameweek.
Peru will look to ensure that does not happen, as they come in on a high following an impressive win over Colombia in their last group game.
