Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Enner Valencia – Enner Valencia has scored 12 goals and provided 4 assists in the Turkish Super Lig. He has created 46 chances, succeeded in 50 successful dribbles and completed 17 accurate crosses. He has 31 goals in 58 games for Ecuador as well and will be the biggest threat on the pitch.

Fidel Martinez – The left-winger has 8 goals and 2 assists in 12 starts in the Mexican Liga MX. He has created 17 chances and attempted 12 shots on target in that time. Martinez will link up with the likes of Valencia and Jhegson Mendez to cause troubles for the Venezuelans.

Differential Pick

Moises Caicedo – Moises Caicedo has had a breakthrough season and will be one to watch out for. He took the Ecuadorian Serie A by storm which earned him a move to Brighton and Hove Albion. At 19 years of age, he is a dynamic midfielder and will make things click in midfield.

VEN vs ECU Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Farinez
Defenders – Arboleda, Estupinan, Precaido
Midfielders – Martinez (VC), Moreno, Casseres, Caicedo
Forwards – Valencia (C), Aristeguieta, Estrada

Likely Winner:

Ecuador should get the win in the VEN vs ECU Today Match Prediction. They have the better players and a fully fit squad. Venezuela has also not managed to beat Ecuador since July 2011. A run spanning 6 games during which Ecuador has won 6 times. While Ecuador doesn’t fancy themselves as winners, they know they are capable of reaching the quarter-finals. Venezuela will be there for the taking and could set up in a low-block aiming to hit back on the counters.
