Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is at 10pm BST. Live coverage of the match will be available on Premier Sports.

Overview

Mexico come into this fixture after a 3-3 draw against host nation Chile in the second group match of the tournament. Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal was the star player for the hosts as he scored twice and managed an assist against the Mexicans.

It was their second straight draw and Mexico need nothing less than a win in order to make it through the next round of the Copa America. They are third in the table, trailing Chile and Bolivia by two points.

Miguel Herrera has a tough choice in his team selection, especially with two of his defenders, left wing-back Adrian Aldrete and centre-back Rafa Marquez, out of the clash with injuries.

Meanwhile, Ecuador are out of the tournament after their 3-2 defeat at the hands of Bolivia in the second fixture. The other defeat came in their 2-0 loss to Chile in the opening fixture of the tournament.

A victory on Friday will only help them finish above Mexico in the group table.
