The Ecuador team will challenge the Costa Rica team in a Friendly Match in Subaru Park Stadium, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, June 20, 2023. For streaming coverage of Ecuador vs Costa Rica, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Costa Rica will host Ecuador in a friendly on Wednesday to complete their preparations ahead of the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup. Luis Fernando Suarez’s side will start their Gold Cup campaign with an exciting clash against Panama at the DRV PNK Stadium on 27 June.
The Costa Rica national team failed to bounce back last Friday when they lost 1-0 to Guatemala at Dignity Health Sports Park. Previously, Los Ticos also lost 1-0 to Panama in the last match of the CONCACAF Nations League group on March 29.
Costa Rica come into this weekend unbeaten in four of their last five friendlies, picking up two draws and two defeats since August 2021.
Meanwhile, Ecuador won two straight wins last time when they narrowly beat Bolivia 1-0 at the Red Bull Arena. This followed a 2-1 win over Australia at Marvel Stadium on 28 March which ended their three-game winless streak.
La Tri come into this weekend unbeaten in five of their last six away matches in all competitions, with a 3-1 loss to Australia on March 24 being the exception.
Meanwhile Ecuador has the better record in the history of this encounter, winning five of the last 11 clashes between the two teams. In the 2022 World Cup that just took place, Ecuador started very well, but unfortunately failed to qualify from the group phase.
Costa Rica have only managed one win in that time, which came in June 1995 when they beat La Tri 1-0 in Seoul, while five matches ended in draws. Meanwhile, Ecuador is unbeaten in five of their last six matches in all competitions, picking up two wins and three draws since June 2022.
Currently, Ecuador is ranked 41st, while Costa Rica is ranked 39th in the FIFA rankings. But that’s just reference data, not reflecting their strength.
Costa Rica and Ecuador come into this game on different terms, with Ecuador winning their last two games. Suarez’s team is having a hard time getting results at home and we predict the visitors will come home with a narrow win.
