Ecuador's situation[edit]

Ecuador will at least qualify to the playoff if they win. Here's why. If they win, they will have more 26 points. With that:

  • If Argentina and Uruguay tie, Ecuador will have more points than Uruguay and Ecuador will finish 5th.
    • If Uruguay and Argentina tie and Ecuador wins, goal difference between Ecuador and Argentina will determine who finishes 4th.
  • Ecuador will have more points than the loser of the Uruguay v Argentina match, and Ecuador will ahead of the loser.

Either way, Ecuador finishes in at least 5th place with a win. Digirami (talk) 05:20, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm aware of that. I changed it because if they win by a zillion goals, it's possible that they won't be in the playoffs because they'll finish 4th instead if they can score enough to make up the deficit on Argentina. Going into the last match, it no longer makes sense to talk about "at least" situations because the final place will be certain. PiGuy314 (talk) 17:13, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
