Uruguay will be expecting a win in the return of Luis Suarez on Tuesday against Ecuador. Follow @SBNationSoccer
Without Luis Suarez, Uruguay's attack was completely stunted by Colombia on Friday. They fell apart in the heat as Camilo Zuñiga, James Rodriguez, Teofilo Gutierrez and Radamel Falcao tore them limb from limb. Uruguay's 18-match unbeaten streak was ended in the most painful way possible: with a gutting 4-0 loss.
They get Suarez back on Tuesday, and they'll be expecting a home win against Ecuador in Montevideo. Ecuador are having a good qualifying cycle and look to be in good position to finish in the top five and at least make a playoff, but they have struggled away from home. They should continue to make the most of their home advantage in Quito, but don't expect a great showing from them on Tuesday.
Though it shouldn't affect this match too much, it's worth noting that all of Diego Godin, Alvaro Pereira and Walter Gargano are one yellow card away from a suspension. If any of them are booked in this match, they will miss Uruguay's match against Argentina.
Game Date/Time: Friday, 5:30 p.m. ET, 6:30 p.m. local
Venue: Estadio Centenario, Montevideo, Uruguay
