Brazil vs Colombia Prediction:
Without a doubt, Brazil is the only team in the tournament performing at their best and offers some safe bets for the punters. Things will not be different when they line-up against a Colombian side that failed to impress against moderate South American teams.
The bookies agree with this and Brazil are heavy favourites to beat Colombia on Wednesday at a decent 1.50 odd.
Tite’s defense was untested in the first two games, but they will concede eventually and with the likes of Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel in play, this could be the game that break their streak.
So, goals are expected at either end, the over 2.5 goals present us with excellent value for stake.
We backed Richarlison to score anytime for the first two games, the Evertonian netted in the final minutes coming off the bench against Peru and we will back him once again to score here.
Brazil vs Colombia Preview:
It is the first real test for Brazil as they lock horns with Colombia in the group stage fixture of 2021 edition of the Copa America.
Having made a perfect start to the tournament with back-to-back wins, the Selecao are top in their group and a win here could see the progress to the knockouts as group winners before the final group game against Ecuador.
This team is way above others at the competition, evident from the massive wins against Venezuela (3-0) and Peru (4-0). This is also an indicator of the fact that this is a well-balanced side with quality in all departments and so far, their defense had to hardly break a sweat.
Colombia is a good side, but they are performing way below their usual standards. After managing to bag a narrow win against Ecuador on matchday 1, the team failed to take their chances against Venezuela and ended up sharing the spoils in a goal-less draw. The style of performance was same against Peru on Sunday, but they paid a heavy price there, ending up losing 1-2.
Reinaldo Rueda who managed an unbeaten start to his return as Colombia coach will be lamenting the missed chances, he has quality strikers, yet the ball rarely found the back of the net.

HEAD to HEAD:
- The latest meeting between Brazil and Colombia happened in a friendly in September 2019 and it was a thriller ended with a 2-2 full-time scoreline. Casemiro gave Selecao the lead inside 20 minutes only for a double strike from Luis Muriel in 10 minutes apart send the Cafeteros with a 2-1 lead at the break. Neymar brought parity back to Brazil just after half time. From there, both teams missed several chances to snatch the winner.
- Colombia beat Brazil 1-0 when they met at the Copa America 2015, a controversial match that saw both Neymar and Carlos Bacca sent off in the final minutes.
- Brazil had a good record against Colombia at the Copa, having won three consecutive games without conceding in 1991, 95 and 97 respectively.
With the win against Peru, Tite’s men extended their winning run across all competitions to 9 matches. Clean sheets are abundant during the period, a total of 8 and interestingly Peru back in October 2020 is the only team to have scored against them. Number of goals they scored during the period stand at an impressive 26.
Rueda’s return as Colombia head-coach saw them beating Peru at their own backyard with a 3-0 scoreline and then held Argentina to a 2-2 draw. We saw a pattern from there, that is since the start of Copa America, the team creating a lot of chances and missing almost everything. The result is a 1 win, draw and loss each from three game with 2 goals to their name.
