La Tri lie ahead of Colombia on goal difference as they enter the latest phase of qualification - and Gustavo Alfaro knows that anything other than a three-point haul in fixtures like these risk ruining his side's prospects.

Alexander Dominguez will skipper the side in goal, while there could be a debut for Brighton teenager Jeremy Sarmiento following his inclusion.

Predicted Ecuador starting XI: Dominguez; Castillo, Leon, Torres, Hincapie, Estupinan; Franco, Gaibor, Gruezo, Caicedo, Valencia, Estrada.

Cesar Farias has named a 50-man-plus squad for this month's games, littered with uncapped players in line for their first games - but it will likely be the old hands that La Verde turn to in pursuit of victory on the road.

Their three-decade absence from the World Cup is unlikely to change on this latest road to Qatar, but with Marcelo Moreno fronting their ranks, they can hope to spring some surprises.

Predicted Bolivia starting XI: Lampe; Jesus Sagredo, Jusino, Haquin, Quinteros, Jose Sagredo; Saavedra, Justiniano, Villarroel; H. Vaca, Moreno.
