Copa America 2021: Brazil vs. Ecuador Kickoff Time, How to Watch on TV and Online

Brazil will aim to make it four wins in four games when it takes on Ecuador on Sunday, as the group stages of the Copa America come to an end.

The defending champions have already secured qualification to the quarterfinals and cannot be overtaken at the top of Group B after winning their first three games, while Ecuador needs to at least equal Venezuela's result against Peru to secure a berth in the knockout stage.

Having routed Venezuela 3-0 in the tournament opener, before trouncing Peru 4-0 last week in a repeat of the 2019 final, Brazil was made to work far harder against Colombia on Wednesday night.

Trailing after just 10 minutes to a spectacular goal from Luis Díaz, the Seleção had to wait until the 78th minute to equalize when Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino headed past Colombia's goalkeeper David Ospina.

The hosts secured the three points deep into injury time when Casemiro netted the winner following a corner from Neymar.

Speaking to ESPN after the game, the Real Madrid midfielder hailed his team's spirit.

"They came at us once and then stopped," Casemiro said after the match. "It was our attack against their defense. Colombia is a strong team but, as the coach requires, we are very strong mentally."

With its ticket to the quarterfinals already punched, Brazil coach Tite could make changes and rest some of its players on Sunday, but Ecuador can afford no such luxury after squandering a two-goal lead against Peru.

A goal from Ayrton Preciado following a Renato Tapia own goal had given La Tri a 2-0 lead on Wednesday, before Peru leveled the score courtesy of goals from Gianluca Lapadula and André Carrillo in five second-half minutes.

The result leaves Ecuador fourth in Group B with two points in three games and ahead of Venezuela only by virtue of having a superior goal difference—Ecuador's is -1, while Venezuela is -3—in the race for the fourth and final qualifying spot.

Ecuador would qualify with a win against Brazil and a draw would be enough to progress as long as Venezuela fails to beat Peru in its game, which kicks off at the same time. Should Ecuador lose, it must hope for a Peru win.
