Ecuador – El Tri to extend longest unbeaten run for more than six years?

Just a fourth-ever World Cup appearance beckons for Ecuador who, after collecting 23 out of a possible 42 points so far (W7 D2 L5), stand on the brink of qualifying for the finals in Qatar later this year. That is a better return than in their previous bid to reach a first World Cup since exiting the group stage of Brazil 2014. It is also a total better than all except Argentina and Brazil on this occasion.

La Tri sit third but hold a six point cushion on Colombia and Peru with which to navigate the closing four rounds. Confidence amongst the players should be high, despite not having played together since a 1-1 draw away to El Salvador in a friendly last November that stretched their unbeaten run to five matches (W3 D2). They’ve been formidable on home soil, meanwhile, winning all but two of seven home qualifiers (D1 L1).

Key Stat: Ecuador’s previous four victories in World Cup qualifying saw them win to nil, three being as hosts versus Bolivia, Paraguay and Venezuela.

Brazil – Tite seeking swift return to winning ways?

The most successful nation in World Cup history has already rubber stamped their participation in Qatar, turning what can often be a CONMEBOL slog into a procession by winning 11 of 13 qualifiers to date. This might explain how they have failed to win two of their previous four qualifying contests – both away from home and both goalless draws versus Argentina and Colombia – as a lack of incentive creeps in.

Yet there is still the allure of becoming the first team in Selecao colours to go a full 18-fixture WC qualifying campaign without losing a game. Bearing in mind they suffered one defeat in their last 21 internationals (W17 D3) – that being last summer’s narrow Copa America final loss to Argentina – and none in their 12 prior meetings with Thursday’s opponents in Quito (W8 D3), extending the run is a distinct possibility.

Key Stat: Since a 4-2 victory against Peru in their opening away qualifying encounter of this World Cup qualifying campaign, Brazil have only conceded once in six subsequent away qualifiers. Though they did draw the last two such matches 0-0.

Ecuador Vs Brazil Betting Advice

At odds against, Brazil look value to make it 12 wins from 14 in World Cup qualifying. Head coach Tite has called up a strong squad despite already sealing their place at Qatar with numerous games to spare, so is clearly bidding to build up momentum ahead of the finals which are in December. He will also be keen to banish the memories of recent goalless draws in Argentina and Colombia.


Ecuador Vs Brazil – Key Facts:

  • A difference of 12 points split the teams ahead of their clash in Quito, Ecuador. Brazil (W11 D2) lead the way having yet to lose a game, while Ecuador (W7 D2 L5) are going well in third.
  • Brazil are out to preserve a 11-match unbeaten record (W8 D3) versus Ecuador, whose last H2H victory dates back to November 2004 (a 1-0 win as hosts).
  • If Thursday’s guests are to make it three wins in their last four visits to Ecuador, they may need to improve upon a run of four successive away qualifiers without establishing a half-time lead (W2 D2).


Brazil’s defence has only been breached once in their past six away qualifiers, though, making a shock victory for the hosts seem unlikely. However, Ecuador will take heart from what is the second strongest record at home in CONMEBOL qualifying (W5 D1 L1), averaging close to three goals a game. It is even money Both Teams to Score lands and 9/2 Brazil preserve their dominant H2H record with a win that isn’t to nil.
