Ecuador will host Brazil this week, as the CONMEBOL resumes in the New Year, to decide the South American qualifiers for the World Cup 2022 in Qatar.
Brazil, as expected, has been sensational in this round too, and has already secured a spot at Qatar. The team has played 13 games, winning 11 of them, and is yet to lose. It enjoys a 6 point lead over Argentina, who has also qualified. Both the teams played against each other in the last qualifier and managed a 0-0 draw. The Selecaos have been prolific scorers, and have managed to find the back of the net on 27 occasions while conceding just 4 goals in the process.
Brazil, the only team to have featured in all the World Cups, has been unable to lift the title since 2002. But this might be the year they end that streak.
Ecuador will be pretty happy with its performance this year, and sits in third place on the points table, with 23 points. It enjoys a healthy lead of 7 points over 6th placed Chile and is also ahead when it comes to goal difference. The team will however be looking to finish in the top 4 and qualify automatically, rather than finishing 5th and competing in an inter-confederation play-off to secure a spot.
The Tricolors have lost just 1 of the last 5 qualifier games and will be feeling pretty confident going into this match, after scoring wins in its last two games.
Match prediction and betting tips for Brazil vs Ecuador, World Cup Qualifiers 2022. The match is going to be played at Estadio de Liga Deportiva Universitaria, Quito, on the 27th January 2022.
Brazil will be looking to extend its 30 game unbeaten streak in the World Cup Qualifiers and will be feeling pretty confident with its recent form. The team has however been unable to win its last 2 games away from home, and have in fact been unable to score in both of them.
Ecuador boss Gustavo Alfaro will be making a few tweaks in the team that drew the last friendlies against El Salvador, and include Alexander Dominguez, Felix Torres, and Piero Hincapie. Bryan Castillo, Fernando Leon as well as Gustavo Vallecilla will be unavailable for selection due to injuries.
As for Brazil, forward Neymar is suffering from an ankle injury, and won’t be traveling, while Firmino and Richarlison have not made it in the squad. Thiago Silva, Dani Alaves and Casemiro are all likely to start the game, along with Raphinha and Vinicius Junior.
While Ecuador may use the home advantage to score a goal, Tite’s men are overwhelming favorites to gain 3 points.
Bet on Brazil to win.
