His last loss in Playoffs
To remember the last game lost by Brazil in the South American Qualifiers for the World Cup you have to go back to 2015. On October 9 of that year, the Chilean team beat the Brazilians 2-0 on the first day of the 2018 Russia Qualifiers. The team led at that time by Dunga fell in Santiago to a Chilean team trained by Jorge Sampaoli, which now directs the Olympique de Marseille. Eduardo Vargas and Alexis Sánchez scored the goals in the final stretch that gave victory to theirs.
That day, Brazil played with footballers like Marcelo, Dani Alves, Miranda, Óscar, Hulk, Willian or Douglas Costa. Neymar was not in the call and the bench was occupied, among others, Filipe Luis, Fabinho, Kaká, Lucas Lima or Ricardo Oliveira, who at that time was 35 years old.
After falling in Chile, the auriverdes have had an almost outstanding trajectory. In the last six years they have added 45 victories, 13 draws and 6 defeats, only 4 of them in an official match. In a summer with so many commitments, Brazil wants to continue dominating with an iron fist the CONMEBOL in 2021.
