Tite's team has started the road to the World Cup in Qatar with nine victories in which they have scored 22 goals and have only conceded two. Numbers that summarize the trajectory of the team under the command of the former Corinthians coach. A pragmatic team characterized by its defensive power and good organization.
However, his tyranny in South America has been very common in recent years. In 2019 he won the Copa América with an almost perfect sequence of matches: 4 wins, 2 draws and only 1 goal received in the entire tournament, that was in the final against Perú. Thus, the canarinha is presented as the top favorite for the competition that will be held again this summer.
To remember the last game lost by Brazil in the South American Qualifiers for the World Cup, we must go back to 2015. On October 9 of that year, the Chilean team beat the Brazilians 2-0 on the first day of the Russia 2018 Qualifiers. The team led at that time by Dunga fell in Santiago to a Chilean team trained by Jorge Sampaoli, who now directs Olympique de Marseille. Eduardo Vargas and Alexis Sánchez scored the goals down the stretch that gave their team victory.
