Tite’s Brazil meets the first opponent the team faced after the manager’s arrival again.
Against Ecuador, at Gremio’s arena, the Brazilian national team will play a match that doesn’t mean much regarding qualification.
Brazil is on a spectacular form since Tite’s arrival, and they’ve already ensured qualification to the 2018 World Cup, and they’ve finished in 1st place in this group.
They’ve played 11 matches with Tite in charge, getting 10 wins and only 1 loss.
The loss came in one of their last friendlies, against rivals Argentina, where they played without some of their key stars. In the qualification stage, Brazil has 33 points gained so far.
This amounts to an historical campaign and they’ve won their last 8 matches in a row on this stage. For this match, Tite called up the very best Brazilian players. Even Neymar was called up and should start against Ecuador.

Brazil vs Ecuador Betting Tip and Prediction:
Ecuador, on the other hand, are on a delicate situation.
The team has been able to qualify for the World Cup most of the times. But now they’re in bad form, and they couldn’t have chosen a worst timing for that.
With only one win on their last 5 matches, and with the results from the previous matchday, they are now out of the qualification spots, and even out of the intercontinental play-off spot, at the moment.
Away from home, Ecuador has 2 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses so far, having scored 11 goals and conceded 12.
They will sit back and play for the draw. The team’s record isn’t very positive playing away from Quito and Ecuador usually struggles in Brazil.
The Brazilians have enough weapons to break the Ecuadorian’s defensive line and after scoring the 1st goal, they have high chances to get a comfortable win.
