Skipper Diego Godin will marshal the defence along with Jose Giminez and Martin Caceres. Juventus man Rodrigo Bentacur has a lot of firepowers and he could be real difference between the two teams in the middle.

Former Manchester Unites skipper Antonio Valencia made it to the Ecuador squad despite not playing much throughout the 2018/19 season. He will likely be deployed in an attacking front three along with Enner Valencia and Romario Ibarra. The defence is a big worry with Juan Paredes not in the squad and 34 years Gabriel Achilier the only player with some experience. Jefferson Intriago has to be the supply line for the front three in a game they are not expected to dominate possession.
Ecuador may lack the depth in comparison to Uruguay but they can take solace from the fact that they have beaten their famous opponents twice in the last three meetings.
