Alisson; Emerson, Marquinhos, Militao, Renan Lodi; Everton, Fabinho, Paquetá, Douglas Luiz; Firmino and Gabriel Barbosa.
The team led by the Argentine Gustavo Alfaro, increasingly questioned, is now forced to give the bell against Brazil, which has been intractable with two wins against Venezuela (3-0), Peru (4-0) and Colombia (2-1).
The Tricolor arrives on this last day without having done their homework after wasting a 2-0 in favor against Peru on the previous date, which managed to tie the match in five minutes of the second half.
The Ecuadorian team will play its ticket to the quarterfinals of the Copa América this Sunday against the worst possible enemy, the host Brazil, determined to close this first phase with full victories despite being already classified as first in group B.
Ecuador and Brazil present very different realities on the last date of the Copa América. With only two points, Gustavo Alfaro’s team needs to win, without depending on anyone, to achieve the long-awaited qualification for the quarterfinals.
Those led by Tite, already classified, will seek the three points at all costs to reaffirm their leadership in South America. Will Ecuador be able to hit the ground running?
