Ecuador meet France today at the 2014 World Cup, at the Maracanã – Estádio Jornalista Mário Filho in Rio De Janeiro.

Form

The two sides have met once before, with France taking out a 2-0 win.

Ecuador lost to Switzerland 2-1 in the first round, and then took the points against Honduras in the second round with a 2-1 victory.

France defeated Honduras 3-0 in their opening encounter, and outclassed Switzerland 5-2 in their second match.

Injuries & Suspensions

French defender Mamadou Sakho was subbed off against Switzerland but should be fit to continue in the tournament.

Prediction & Tip

Ecuador will need to pick up the full 3 points here if they hope to progress to the second round. France have been lethal so far in the competition, scoring 8 goals in 2 matches. Even with the likely resting of some of the French 1st team, we still see them being too good for Ecuador. Ladbrokes are offering 17/10 for a French win with a -1 handicap, which looks a pretty safe bet to us.
