Prediction for Brazil vs Ecuador tip
The Brazilian national team is the first one which qualified for the World Cup in Russia. Nevertheless, the Cariocas want to finish the South American qualifications strongly and to send the message to all of their opponents. They will host Ecuador in the 15th round, and the guests are in a critical position because they have to win. Three points here are extremely significant for their fight and pursuit of Russia.
Coach Tite made a flawless team, which is slowly starting to resemble the one from 1994 which got the World Cup title. Strong defense and extremely efficient attack with a constant control of the pace and the tempo of the game. Brazil currently has 5 straight victories in the South American qualifications, with only one goal allowed during that span. On the other hand, in each of those contests, Neymar and the company scored at least two goals. When looking the record at home, Brazil hasn’t conceded since the September of the last year. In 3 most recent matches, they have scored 11 goals without allowing one. The fundamental fact is that Brazil always attacks, no matter the current result. Tite wants to bring back Joga Bonito back to the Brazilians.
Gustavo Quinteros need to find a way to stay unbeaten in Brazil because that will give some hope to this team that they can reach Russia. At this moment Ecuador is on the 6th place with two points less than Argentina. However, only 4 points are separating them from the second-placed Columbia, and they have to keep up.
La Tricolor managed to put down 3 games without a loss. That eventually helped them to stay close to the spots which lead to the World Cup. 8th of the previous 10 ended with over 2.5 goals. They like to play open games with many chances and counter attacks on both sides. Felipe Caicedo with 7 goals and Enner Valencia with 4 are the crucial players for this team.
Head to head matches
In the recent times, Brazil is one of the toughest opponents for Ecuador. The hosts in this event have 6 straight victories. Also, Ecuador hasn’t scored in the previous 3 games.
Brazil demolished Ecuador in the reverse leg with 3-0 away from home.
Prediction for Brazil vs. Ecuador tip
Brazil already completed most of the job, and we think that coach Tite will give a chance to some players who didn’t play much throughout the qualifications. However, we do not believe that this will affect Brazil’s game. Over 2.5 goals is our first choice. For the second one, we would go with Brazil scores in both halves. The home team is unstoppable at the moment. And when we add the fact that many of the players abroad are in excellent shape, this is a sure bet.
