Team news & rosters

Position Colombia roster
Goalkeepers Ospina, Vargas, Quintana
Defenders Sanchez, Mina, Tesillo, Medina, Mojica, Munoz, Lucumi, Cuesta
Midfielders Cuadrado, Barrios, Uribe, Quintero, Lerma, Cuellar, Balanta, Candelo
Forwards Falcao, Zapata, Diaz, Martinez, Borre, Sinisterra

Colombia currently occupies the play-off spot in the qualifying table, but sits just three points ahead of Paraguay with seven games remaining.

Two scoreless draws during international break has not helped Colombia's chances, but a clean sheet against Brazil can be looked at as a positive.

With that draw, Colombia became the first team to take points from Brazil, who had won all their previous nine qualifying games.

Predicted Colombia starting XI: Ospina; Medina, Sanchez, Mina, Tesillo; Cuadrado, Lerma, Uribe, Diaz; Borre, Falcao.

Position Ecuador roster
Goalkeepers Dominguez, Oritz, Ramirez
Defenders Arboleda, Estupinan, Angelo Preciado, Arreaga, Palacios, Torres, Hincapie, Leon, Castillo
Midfielders Mena, Gruezo, Mendez, Ayrton Preciado, Gaibor, Plata, Franco, Caicedo, Rojas, Sarmiento
Forwards Valencia, Estrada, B. Angulo, J. Angulo

Ecuador sits in third place in the table, with the 6-1 win over Colombia earlier in the campaign giving it a strong goal difference.

However, defeat to Colombia could see Ecuador slip out of the automatic qualification spots, with the path to progress still wide open.

It is unclear who will start in goal as Ecuador has used both Moises Ramirez and Pedro Ortiz this week, with both players keeping a clean sheet on their respective starts.

Predicted Ecuador starting XI: Ramirez; Arboleda, Torres, Hincapie; Estupinan, Gruezo, Caicedo, Preciado; Mena, Valencia, Plata.
