Quick Facts

  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in four of last five meetings between the two teams
  • USA suffered only one loss in last seven games on the international stage
  • Clint Dempsey has netted 49 goals for the US national team to date
  • Ecuador failed to keep a clean sheet in last four matches

United States vs Ecuador Prediction

Despite the fact that Jurgen Klinsmann rested his key players against Puerto Rico, USA recorded a 3-1 win over Jack Stefanowski’s troops at the weekend. The German tactician welcomes his star players Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley back to the squad and there is every chance the Yanks will score in Thursday’s friendly. Given Ecuador’s attacking potential, both teams to score bet appears on the cards.

Betting Tip: Both teams to score

Odds: 1.90 (9/10) @10Bet
