Reinaldo Rueda would repeat Colombia’s 4-4-2 against Chile to receive Ecuador this Thursday, October 14 in Barranquilla for the Qualifiers. Juan Guillermo Cuadrado would go as a right back to complement Juan Fernando Quintero in attack. In this way, the Colombian National Team also I would play with two forwards.
The victory leaves the team in the direct qualification zone. That is why the proposal against Ecuador leans towards what it showed in the 3-1 victory against the Chileans with a first half of dominance through possession, quick transitions and Quintero’s middle distance.
The return of Juan Guillermo opens up multiple options for the configuration of that payroll with an offensive profile in the base system. If he goes as a winger, he can set up the midfield with Wilmar Barrios, Matheus Uribe, Luis Díaz, the 10th and two forwards.
If you put it later, the sacrificed could be Uribe, because Juan Fernando would go more through the center as a playmaker. Ecuador gives advantages for its left wing and the support of Daniel Muñoz as a winger would make the tricolor very strong for that band in which mechanized movements are already shown. In that 4-4-2 Barrios would be the only one in charge to recover for the ball.
The DT indicated that Quintero and Cuadrado complement each other well for the game plan you define in the Metropolitan.
“They are players who fortunately have that versatility. It depends on the characteristics of the game and the accessories, they know how to interpret the game. There will be no problem if they take part in the game as initialists or alternatives. Hope they feel good. in the position in which they act and that they are effective, “he said.
Another possibility is to go 4-5-1 to back Barrios with Uribe in the middle. It would keep Díaz, Quintero and Cuadrado, with a single point. “We have to come out with the conviction that we need the result as we did against Chile,” declared the Juventus team.
So things, the possible team would be with Ospina; Square, Mine, Cuesta, Mojica; Barrios, Uribe, Quintero, Díaz; I erased and Falcao.
