Ecuador 1 - Venezuela 1
Arango hit a free kick onto the top of the crossbar nine minutes into the second period, and then had a shot saved by a diving Dominguez eleven minutes later. Yet again, Ecuador dominated the later portion of the half. Three minutes after the Dominguez save, Arroyo clanged the crossbar from a short-angle free kick. Jefferson Montero came off the bench for Ecuador with ten minutes to go and with his first touch fired into the legs of Venezuela goalkeeper Dani Hernandez, letting La Vinotinto off the hook. An Antonio Valencia ball to Arroyo four minutes after that nearly caused a goal but a flying save by Hernandez kept the score level. The teams split the points after a 1-1 draw.
Juan Arango 6
Segundo Castillo 22
