Excess illusion. And they have to maintain those high expectations. The Ecuadorian team is one step away from getting the ticket to the World Cup in Qatar. And the Ecuadorian fans, excited by this last double date of the South American Qualifiers, mobilized en masse towards the ticket offices to obtain their tickets for the crucial duel against Argentina Leo Messi and Co., next Tuesday 29 in Guayaquil.
Ecuador is third in the table, behind Brazil and Argentina, with 25 points. With a win or a draw next Thursday 24 in Asunción against Paraguay, direct qualification to the World Cup will be assured. Even if the team led by Gustavo Alfaro lost to the Guaraní team, could also achieve its goal, depending on other results.
Long lines to get a ticket for Ecuador-Argentina.
But of course, in the case of not getting the passage to Qatar in the match against the Barros Schelotto brothers’ team, which is already without a chance of qualifying, the Tricolor will define its future in the World Cup match against the Argentine National Team. Hence the tremendous expectation that exists for this match, to be played at the Barcelona stadium in Guayaquil instead of Quito. The fans, in the case of reaching that duel already inside the World Cup, will take the opportunity to celebrate the conquest.
That is why this Sunday night there was a long line of Ecuadorian fans in front of the stadium ticket offices to try to get their ticket for Tuesday the 29th. In addition to celebrating the classification with their national team, there is also the bonus of seeing live and in direct to Lionel Messi and Cía. The Ecuadorian Federation wants the stadium full.
