It is fifth versus third ahead of what will be both sides’ penultimate game in Group B.
Bouncing back from their opening 4-0 defeat by Brazil, third-placed Peru are aiming to build on their 2-1 win over Colombia last time out, and another victory here would secure their progression to the quarter-finals.
Ricardo Gareca’s side have won three of their last five meetings with Ecuador, including a 2-1 success in their World Cup qualifying clash earlier this month.
With Brazil awaiting in their final group game, La Tricolor must realistically achieve a positive result here if they are to boost their own hopes of advancing from the group.

Needing a result, Ecuador must make do without talisman Enner Valencia, who is suspended after picking up two yellow cards in as many games.
In his absence, La Tricolor will turn to Gonzalo Plata, who has scored in four of the last five matches in which they have found the net.
Indeed, we can expect goals here. After all, Ecuador have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 matches, while Peru have now gone 11 games without registering one.

The two sides will know what they are coming up against, having most recently faced off just under three weeks ago.
While Peru have prevailed in three of the last five meetings, the margin of victory has not been greater than a single goal and, given what is at stake, we can expect another tight affair here.
