Japan responded well by their 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Chile with a 2-2 draw against Uruguay in the 2019 Copa America. The draw gives Japan hope going into their last game of the group stage versus Ecuador. The Ecuadorians have been dreadful, to say the least in the campaign, shipping in goals with ease. Having lost both their games, they are under pressure to reverse their form when they take on Japan. A win for Japan could see them go through to the next round as one of the two best third-placed team. For Ecuador, even a win does not guarantee them a quarter-final berth due to poor goal difference.

The young guns of Japan have the pace and trickery going forward which could trouble Ecuador. Koji Miyoshi scored a brace in the previous game and his confidence will be sky high heading into the last game. Shinji Okazaki and Hiroki Abe produced a fine partnership in the attacking third getting past the Uruguay defence with ease. The duo will likely start again in a 4-4-2 formation that suits Japan well. Defence continues to be a weak point for the Asian side with youngsters like Naomichi Ueda lacking big game experience.
Ecuador are banking on senior pros like Enner and Antonio Valencia to drive the team forward. With 29 goals in 50 appearances for the national side, Enner Valencia has on several occasion bailed Ecuador out of trouble. Gabriel Achilier is suspended for the tie after his sending off against Chile and is a big miss for the team. Arturo Mina is likely to take the place of the defender in the playing eleven.
