Brazil have already qualified for Russia 2018 but will still be keen to continue their great run of form in World Cup qualifiers when entertaining Ecuador.
Head coach Tite has steered the Selecao to eight straight wins in this competition and has a fully-fit squad to select from, with Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho among the 23 players available.
The Samba Stars began that sequence by prevailing 3-0 when these teams met in Quito last September and we’re on them at 4/5 to win to nil again in our Brazil vs Ecuador betting predictions.
A Look At Brazil’s Betting Odds
Brazil have kept six clean sheets in their run of World Cup victories, only conceding against Colombia at home and Uruguay away.
A stellar defensive line-up includes Dani Alves, Marcelo and Thiago Silva while Real Madrid sensation Casemiro and highly-rated Gremio starlet Luan could add fresh zest in midfield.
With Neymar, Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino among the forwards on call, this really is an athletic and energetic Selecao squad.
Looking at the Brazil vs Ecuador odds, we like 25/4 for another 3-0 triumph, following home wins by that scoreline against Argentina, Peru and Paraguay.
A Look At Ecuador’s Betting Odds
Ecuador are still in contention to reach next year’s finals, currently lying in sixth place in the South American section, only two points behind Argentina and three adrift of Uruguay and Chile.
However, after getting off to a good start, they have faltered with three defeats in four games and face a difficult run-in.
Manchester United star Antonio Valencia and former West Ham striker Enner Valencia are familiar faces in a solid set-up but it is hard to see them having much possession in Porto Alegre.
