Uruguay have been dubbed as one of the favorites to win the Copa America this year, and they will start their duties with a tricky match against Ecuador on Sunday. Ecuador have not fared well in this match-up over the years but have been quite solid lately.

Uruguay had a rather successful run in the World Cup last year, where they were eventually eliminated at the quarter-finals against France. Since then they have played six friendlies but just won their first and last match (2-4-0). Each of their last eight matches in all competitions had Over 2.5 Goals (6-5-0). But their last five matches have seen goals just from one side.
Ecuador did not make it to the World Cup and have been preparing a lot for this tournament. In their last match they fell to Mexico by 2-3 and are win-less in their last four (0-2-2). However, their overall record in that 10-match span is a solid 4-3-3. The last time Ecuador won an opening match was back in 1993 (0-6-3 since). Ecuador have only won three times in the last six editions of the Copa America (3-13-3) and are the team with the worst record in the tournament (16-80-22).
