Ecuador close to qualifying from the group

Gustavo Alfaro’s team is third in the South American selection with 23 points. The Tricolor have 7 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats in 14 rounds.

Ecuador are close to a return to the Mundial, where the Tricolour have not played since the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The Alfaro players are six points ahead of pursuers Colombia and Peru. However, the Ecuadorians have a difficult calendar. After the match with Brazil, the Tricolour will play away with Peru, and in March they will travel to visit Paraguay and take on Argentina.

The La Tri had a successful match against Chile last weekend. The encounter on 17 November 2021 in Santiago ended in a 2-0 win for the visitors. The Ecuadorians, who had been on the powerplay since the 13th minute, quickly took the lead after a Pervez Estupiñan goal and Moises Caicedo doubled the lead at the end of the 2nd half.

Brazil dominate South American qualifying

Tite’s team are 1st in the qualifying group with 35 points after 13 matches. The Celesao have 11 wins and 2 draws.

The Brazilians guaranteed their participation in the Mundial last November. Even with losses in all remaining rounds, Tite’s players will not drop below third place in the South American selection table.

The Pentacampeons are not experiencing any serious opposition in qualifying. The Brazilians have lost points in only two matches, including their last away game against Argentina. The game in San Juan on 17 November ended without a goal (0-0).

The Tricolor have not beaten the Brazilians since 2004.

Ecuador have not beaten the Pentacampeons in a long time. The last time the Ecuadorian players triumphed was in November 2004, in a home match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying (1-0). In the next 11 meetings, the Tricolour have scored three draws and eight defeats.

The opponents competed twice in Brazil last calendar year. The Brazilians beat Ecuador 2-0 on home soil on June 5 and split the points in a 1-1 home encounter in the group stage of the America’s Cup on June 28.

Neymar to miss January’s games

Ecuador will field their full strength squad for the January games.

The Pentacampeons have already solved the problem of qualifying group relegation, but Tite’s coaching staff have decided to try out all of their strongest players. Due to the stars of the Brazilian national team only Neymar, who is recovering from injury, was not included in the squad. In addition, the match against Ecuador will not involve midfielders Fabinho and Lucas Paqueta, who received disqualifications.

Prediction and bet: both to score – no

The Brazilians are devoid of tournament motivation, which gives Tite’s staff a chance to experiment with the squad. This could weaken the pragmatic Pentacampeons’ attack and gives Ecuador a chance to score points in the upcoming home game. “Tricolor also bet on defence: in terms of total goals conceded (13 in 14 rounds), Alfaro’s team is second only to the Brazilians and the Argentines.

The two-goal/no-goal betting has gone in 7 of Ecuador’s 8 matches in World Cup 2022 qualifying. A similar bet for the Brazilian national team has passed in 10 of the 12 qualifiers. In addition, only one of the teams has scored in 5 of the 6 head-to-head games.
