As a rule, Sunday is the busiest football day. Still, there are special schedules of the events during the “FIFA windows”. For instance, the second of the weekends went unnoticed by high-level teams. There is a kind of exception – the Italian national team will compete with Ecuador as part of the current tour in the United States. Who will be the winner in Harrison? The expert department of the website has prepared a prediction for the match on March 24, 2024.

Italy is preparing to defend its title at the upcoming Euro

“The Squadra Azzurra” was the winner of the last continental tournament. Moreover, everyone recognized that the success was deserved, despite the fact that Donnarumma repeatedly became a hero, including winning penalty shoot-outs in decisive matches. Still, there were mostly failures after that: the loss to Switzerland in the dispute for leadership in the qualifying group, the shocking defeat made by North Macedonia at the home arena in the play-offs. Moreover, Mancini managed to lose to England in the qualification and Spain in the semi-finals of the Nations League in 2023. However, there, being already under the current mentor, Spalletti, who had replaced Roberto, who, in his turn, had fled to Saudi Arabia, were also a lot of failures. The team lost to its British opponent again, Luciano made his debut with the draw in the confrontation with Macedonians, and he shared the points in the decisive match against Ukraine. Fortunately, that result was enough.

Ecuador coped with difficulties at the start of the qualification with dignity

“The Tricolor” started the current cycle last in the table – the team immediately had to compensate for -3 points. This fine was applied because its footballer, who had been naturalized, used forged documents in the previous qualification. He was personally found guilty, and the team was still allowed to participate in the World Championships in Qatar (where it failed to overcome the group stage again), but were slightly punished. Being under the leadership of Felix Sanchez Bas, the team quickly compensated for the “minus”: Argentina was logically successful in the 1st round, but then there were 3 wins and a couple of draws.

Previous head-to-head matches

The South Americans made their debut at the World Championships in 2002, and they lost to the eternal giants with a 0-2 score. Three years later, the opponents ended the game in a 1-1 draw, but in a friendly format.
