Copa: Brazil Set To Extend Unbeaten Record

Brazil will look for an opportunity to continue their unbeaten run of 11 matches against Ecuador before finishing Group B early tomorrow morning.

Tite’s squad started the tournament brilliantly, beating Colombia, Peru and Venezuela to earn a place in the quarterfinals before the final action in the group stage.
They have scored nine in three games and conceded once.

With a slot to the knockout stages already secured, Tite will likely revamp the team to ensure no players face injury problems.

Roberto Firmino, in particular, is hoping to be dropped in the starting line -up after appearing in the second half as he blasted home an equalizer over Colombia, while Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior will be hoping to improve minutes of play in the next game.

Ecuador, meanwhile, need a win to advance to the quarterfinals, although they will advance if Venezuela loses to Peru.

It started with a 1-0 defeat to Colombia before grabbing two consecutive draws when meeting Venezuela and Peru.

They struggled when they met Brazil, with their last victory coming in a South American World Cup qualifier in 2006.
