Brazil have gotten off to a cracking start at the Copa America as they defend their 2019 title, claiming 3-0 and 4-0 victories over Venezuela and Peru, with star man Neymar the only player to register more than once as there’s goals throughout this team.
The Selecao are currently enjoying a nine-game winning streak that’s yielded eight clean sheets, as they also won eight of these by at least a two-goal margin.
In competitive matches alone, Brazil hold a W25-D5-L1 record since September 2016, with that sole defeat their 2018 World Cup exit in the quarterfinals against Belgium.
That includes 15 wins from 17 unbeaten matches on home turf, while the last 16 on their own patch have produced 15 clean sheets and seen them win by at least two clear goals 13 times, and by three or more on nine occasions.
Even more promisingly, Brazil have demonstrated their strength in depth as Tite was able to rotate his side for their second game without any ill effects, as Ederson, Thiago Silva, Alex Sandro, Fabinho, Everton and Gabriel Barbosa all came into the line-up.
The likes of Marquinhos, Casemiro and Richarlison could be restored to the team here as they aim to stay fresh ahead of the knockouts, though talisman Neymar will undoubtedly retain his place.
Colombia have had a mixed start to the Copa America, beating Ecuador, drawing with Venezuela and losing to Peru.
That still leaves them in second place in Group B, albeit with Peru and Ecuador yet to play their third match before this fixture and will be comfortable regarding their prospects of advancing to the knockouts with four of the five teams going through.
Brazil -1 Handicap
Still, Colombia have only registered five victories from 16 matches now (W5-D7-L4), with three of those defeats coming from the most recent seven appearances.
They don’t often fail to score, drawing blanks in just two of their last 11 games, though the defence is looking less watertight as they’ve conceded at least twice in five of the past eight.
Brazil are unbeaten in four clashes with Colombia (W2-D2) and although the two most recent encounters ended in stalemates, one of those was a friendly on neutral territory and the other was played in Colombia.
The tournament favourites look to have the bit between their teeth and although the win to nil is a distinct possibility, the firepower both teams possess makes the handicap a more attractive option.
