First Goalscorer Enner Valencia 7/1

The last time these two sides met, Ecuador ran out shock 6-1 winners but since then, the two sides have gone in contrasting directions. Colombia are unbeaten in two, beating Peru 3-0 and drawing 2-2 with Argentina to leave themselves in a strong position to qualify for next year’s World Cup. Ecuador, meanwhile, beat Bolivia 2-1 in a friendly before losing to Brazil (2-0) and Peru (2-1), though they remain third in the qualifying table.

Colombia have won Copa America just once when they hosted the tournament back in 2001. Ecuador, meanwhile, have never finished beyond fourth place.
