The pressure is well and truly off Brazil heading into their final Group B clash.
Tite’s men are already guaranteed top spot after three straight victories, but will be eager to maintain their momentum heading into the knockout stages.
Although, the Samba Boys were extremely fortunate in their controversial 2-1 win over Colombia earlier this week.
Following a helpful ricochet from the referee, who subsequently failed to halt play in accordance with the rules, Roberto Firmino equalised, while Casemiro dramatically completed the turnaround in the 10th minute of stoppage time.
Likely to rotate, Brazil are unbeaten in their last 10 meetings with Ecuador, who must better Venezuela’s result against Peru to progress to the quarter-finals.
For the second match running, La Tricolor surrendered a winning position in their 2-2 draw with Peru last time out and are now without victory in five.
