Group E’s two losing teams from the opening round of games, Honduras and Ecuador, go head-to-head, with the latter getting the nod from bookies at 8/13 (Stan James).
The rugged Hondurans are 3/1 courtesy of betway to secure a point in Curitiba’s Arena da Baixada but the quality is with La Tri who can bounce back from their defeat to the Swiss.
Enner Valencia looked sharp in Ecuador’s defeat to Switzerland and will certainly attract money at odds of 7/1 with Paddy Power to break the deadlock, just as he did in his side’s first encounter.
At the other end, Honduras aren’t exactly the most dangerous attacking unit in the tournament and it’s worth considering a modest interest at 19/10 (betway) on the South American side combining victory with a clean sheet.
Draw/Ecuador in HT/FT betting – 10/3 (bet365)
