Prediction: Colombia 2-1 Ecuador
This is the first match of Group B where Colombia and Ecuador are going to face each other. Colombia is also hosting Copa America along with Argentina and the match is being held at Colombo; therefore, Colombia will be favorite for this game and surely they will try to win the first match as they would want to win the whole trophy. The defense and the attack of the team are pretty good and also they have good players in the midfield.
Ecuador is another good team to participate in the Copa America tournament. In the last edition, they had played really well and put their mark in the tournament. They have few good players in the team and entirely they have a balanced team altogether and they have a good chance of winning against Colombia.
Hence, in my opinion, Colombia is going to win the match against Ecuador by 2-1.
