Mexico vs Ecuador
Competition: Copa America - 2015 in Chile, Group A
Match date: 19 June 2015
Kick Off Time: 22:00 BST
Venue: Estadio El Teniente (Rancagua, Chile, Republic of) 

Mexico team have stuck up two draws so far in the group, a goalless draw against Bolivia and a 3-3 against Chile. The Mexicans have now won just one of their last six games played, which was a 3-0 win over Guatemala. In their eight previous Copa America campaigns, the Mexicans have only failed to advance beyond the group stages once. It’s likely that a draw here would be enough for Mexico to go through as one of the two best third placed finishers.
Mexico are expected to be without Marquez for this match. Adrian Aldrete has joined the former Barcelona's dfender on the sidelines. Matias Vuoso scored twice in the thrilling draw with Chile last time out and he is expected to partner Raul Jimenez up front.
Ecuador have been playing below expectations at the tournament in Chile. They opened the tournament with a 2-0 defeat against Chile and then suffered a second defeat, a 3-2 loss at the hands of Bolivia. They ave to beat Mexico and hope results go their way elsewhere if they are to avoid exiting the tournament.
Gustavo Quinteros could opt for a similar looking XI. Gabriel Achiller has overcome his injury and he is widely expected to keep his place in the starting XI. Juan Cazares and Renato Ibarra were introduced at the interval lasttime out and could start here.
These two sides have met on 22 previous occasions and Mexico have won 16 times while Ecuador only twice. They last met in a friendly earlier in the year when Chicharito Hernandez scored the only goal of the game.
