Midfielder Renato Ibarra misses out on his chance to earn his 50th cap.

Ecuador’s defence lacks international experience. 36-year-old Christian Noboa anchors the midfield.

Fenerbahce striker Enner Valencia has scored 31 goals in 56 internationals.

Verdict

Brazil are the form team in the South American World Cup qualifiers and get Neymar back from injury. I am backing a comfortable home win against an Ecuador side with a suspect defence.
