Brazil vs Ecuador build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Brazil cruised through to the quarter-finals of the Copa America after just two games, starting the group stage in perfect fashion. And that doesn’t just mean winning both of their matches, with Brazil also keeping two clean sheets, beating Venezuela 3-0 and Peru 4-0. Last time out they secured top spot in Group B too, coming from behind to beat Colombia in dramatic fashion having conceded their first goal of the tournament.
At the other end of Group B, Ecuador are fighting for their Copa America lives and know only a win will guarantee their spot in the next stage. Ecuador are still winless at Copa America, losing to Colombia in their opening match before following that up with draws against Venezuela and Peru, the latter seeing them give up a 2-0 half-time lead. A shock win against Brazil will see Ecuador into the next round, but they will also go through as long as they match Venezuela’s result against Peru.
- Brazil (vs Colombia): Weverton; Danilo, Marquinhos, Silva, Alex Sandro; Richarlison, Fred, Casemiro, Everton; Neymar, Jesus.
- Ecuador (vs Peru): Galindez; Preciado, Arboleda, Hincapie, Estupinan; Franco, Mendez, Caicedo, Preciado; Diaz; Campana.
Neither team has any fresh injury concerns after their penultimate group stage matches.
Player to watch: Neymar (Brazil)
If Brazil are to go all the way at Copa America 2021 they will, of course, be relying on Neymar. That’s not to say they don’t have a number of other excellent stars in their squad, but the Paris Saint-Germain forward is the star.
Neymar has scored 68 goals for Brazil so far and is just nine behind Pele in his quest to become the nation’s all-time top goalscorer, a goal he will achieve barring any unseen disaster. He has been in fantastic form for Brazil too of late, scoring seven goals in his past six matches for the Seleção including a hat-trick against Peru in World Cup qualifying.
In the Copa America alone, Neymar has two in three and also two assists, delivering the corner for Casemiro’s winner against Colombia in the ninth minute of second-half injury time to keep Brazil perfect.
