Despite not being strongly favored to finish in the top five of the South American World Cup Qualifying group, Ecuador snatched a berth in the tournament after a strong start.
After a tight loss against Tuesday’s opponents to begin the season, La Tri went on to win three straight games to establish themselves in the lead pack, and they sat in a reasonably strong position with 16 points from the first ten games.
Argentina only trails Brazil and has a 13-point lead over Tuesday’s third-placed opponent thanks to strong records on both sides of the field, with only the group leaders scoring more goals and conceding fewer goals than Lionel Scaloni’s men.
They enter Tuesday’s meeting having won all three of their qualifying games since the turn of the year, beginning with defeats to Chile and Colombia in the first round of 2022.

Ecuador Team News:
Ecuador boasts a virtually full squad for this game but could make changes given the 3-1 defeat suffered away at Paraguay last week.
Starman and former West Ham forward Enner Valencia is likely to lead the line again while Hernan Galindez will start in goal with Alexander Dominguez absent.
Galindez(GK), Preciado, Torres, Hincapie, Estupinan, Gruezo, Mendez, Castillo, Mena, Rojas, Valencia.
Argentina Team News:
Argentina will be led by star man Messi once again, with the Paris Saint-Germain forward netting in the 3-0 win over Venezuela.
Two forwards who won’t be involved are Mauro Icardi and Lautaro Martinez, which leaves opportunities for the likes of Julian Alvarez, Joaquin Correa, and Nicolas Gonzalez to start.
Lisandro Martinez is missing at the back, and backup keeper Franco Armani could keep his place in between the sticks ahead of Emiliano Martinez.
Armani(GK), Molina, Pezzella, Otamendi, Tagliafico, De Paul, Paredes, Gonzalez, Di Maria, A Correa, Messi.
Argentina will be without a number of key players this weekend and will be looking to make a statement of intent. Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria have had disappointing club seasons and will be looking to continue Argentina’s incredible unbeaten streak this week.
Ecuador can be a force to be reckoned with and is more than capable of holding its own against South America’s behemoths on their day. On paper, Argentina is the better team, and they have the advantage going into this game.
Prediction: Argentina 2- 0 Ecuador.
