These two teams have met each other couple of time. They were kept in same group at the 2011 edition of the COPA America, and their meeting produced 6 goals, as Brazil thrashed the yellows with a 4-2 score line.

However, their recent encounter took place in 2014 during an international friendly game which Brazil won by a one goal. Ecuador Senior national team last defeated Brazil in 2001 world cup qualifier game.

Brazil Vs Ecuador: Prediction

The two sides can cancel out each other looking at each side recent run of form. Brazil is recently placed 7th in June FIFA ranking, while Ecuador are placed 13th in same month ranking.

Regardless of the absence of Neymar, Luiz, Oscar, and Silva; Dunga still have with him a mixture of young, talented and experienced players who can turn games and produce result.

Ecuador will love to avoid their poor run at the last COPA America in Chile. Gustavo Quinteros led side are going to be without the services of Felipe Calcedo but are in the best form of life to make a huge mark in this special edition of COPA America.

We will however be seeing one of the best group clash for the competition an evenly poised encounter between the two side. Both teams have an equal opportunity of clinching the maximum point, with an over 50% possibility of both side sharing points.

Score Prediction: Brazil 4-1 Ecuador.
