Brazil 2-0 Ecuador: Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho are on target in Porto Alegre as Selecao guarantee qualifying top spot
Brazil's fine form in World Cup qualifying continued as they edged out Ecuador to guarantee top spot in the CONMEBOL table.
Second-half goals from Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho - who shone on his appearance off the bench - were enough for the home side in Porto Alegre.
The Selecao dominated from the off and could have had two or three more but for some wastefulness in front of goal and several saves from Ecuador goalkeeper Maximo Banguera.
