Brazil vs. Ecuador Live stream 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, TV channel
Brazil will look to keep their perfect record in CONMEBOL FIFA World Cup qualification when they host Ecuador on Saturday in Porto Alegre.
After four games, the two South American teams have scored the most goals, with the Selecao scoring 12 goals and the visitors scoring 13.
Brazil returns to international duty for the first time in seven months, hoping to continue where they left off after an impressive start to their qualification campaign.
Tite's team has won all four matches so far and is the only South American nation to have collected all four points.
The Selecao began their qualification campaign with a 5-0 thrashing of Bolivia on October 10, followed by a 4-2 victory away to Peru four days later. Brazil won its next two matches, a 1-0 win over Venezuela and a 2-0 win over Uruguay, the following month.
Brazil enters their match against Ecuador with a strong home record, having won each of their last seven World Cup qualifiers without conceding a goal.
The five-time World Cup champions are also unbeaten in their last nine international meetings against Ecuador, and a win on Saturday would keep them atop the CONMEBOL standings.

SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) — CONMEBOL, the South American soccer governing body, announced on Wednesday that the Copa America final will be held on July 10 at Rio de Janeiro's historic Maracana stadium. It also chose Brazil vs. Venezuela as the opening match on June 13 at Brasilia's Mané Garrincha stadium.
The final of the South American championship will be the only match at the Maracan, which also hosted the final two years ago, when Brazil defeated Peru 3-1 to win its ninth title.
After Argentina was dropped due to the spread of COVID-19, CONMEBOL chose Brazil as a replacement host on Monday. Colombia was kicked out of the event as a co-host on May 20 due to street protests against President Iván Duque.
Many health experts criticized the decision to hold the Copa America in Brazil, where the death toll currently stands at over 465,000.
The tournament format of two groups of five was maintained. Argentina, Bolivia, Uruguay, Chile, and Paraguay make up Group A. Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Peru make up Group B. The top four players from each group advance to the knockout round.
The semifinals will be held on July 5 at the Nilton Santos stadium in Rio and the following day at the Mané Garrincha stadium in Brasilia. Quarterfinals will be held on July 2 at Nilton Santos and Goiania's Olimpico stadiums, and on July 3 at the same Olimpico stadium and Brasilia's Mané Garrincha stadium.
Rio and Brasilia will each host eight tournament matches. Goiânia will play seven games, while Cuiabá will play five, all in the group stage. Spectators will be unable to attend any Copa America matches due to the pandemic.
The governors of all host states are allies of President Jair Bolsonaro, who is one of the event's main supporters.
Following the opener, Brazil will face Peru and Colombia at the Nilton Santos stadium before concluding their group-stage campaign against Ecuador in Goiânia. If the hosts win their group, they will be able to play all knockout stage matches in Rio.
Argentina's first match in the tournament will be against Chile at the Nilton Santos Stadium, followed by matches against Uruguay and Paraguay in Brasilia and Bolivia in Cuiabá.
