Brazil vs Colombia: Prediction and Betting Tips

01:00, Jun 24 2021
Brazil vs Colombia prediction for Thursday’s Copa America clash at Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos in Rio de Janeiro. It’s matchday three as group B leaders Brazil face second-placed Colombia in the strongest match of the group. Read on for our free prediction and betting tips.

A third win for Brazil could seal the top spot 

The Selecao had an emphatic start to their Copa America campaign winning both their opening matches 3-0 and 4-0 and assuring themselves as top candidates to win the title. The nine-time and reigning champions will have their hardest test so far against Colombia where a win will almost secure them the top spot of group B.

In their match against Peru, Neymar and co enjoyed 55% of ball possession and had nine shots on target. It wasn’t a show of just offensive strength but also coach Tite’s defense allowed just two shots for Peru on the Brazilian goalkeeper Ederson. With no injuries in his squad, Tite will definitely field his best 11 and play for the win.

Brazil key points

  • Brazil are on a nine-match winning streak
  • Two or more goals were scored by Brazil in their last five games
  • Brazil failed to score in just one of their last ten matches

Colombia hope to get at least a point

After a winning start against Ecuador, Colombia lost momentum in their next two matches and dropped five points by drawing and losing with Venezuela and Peru respectively. The Tricolore have played one more match than Peru who are third in group B and they could lose their second place in the group and face a tough second-round matchup.

Coach Rueda needs his strongest team to be ready for this match. The coach didn’t start the attacking duo of Atalanta Muriel and Zapata in their last match against Peru. The duo was substituted against Venezuela where they both couldn’t impose themselves on the opponent’s defense.

Colombia Key Points

  • Colombia have conceded 1.5 goals per game in their last ten matches
  • Colombia have scored in all of their last six matches
  • Over 2 goals were scored in Colombia’s last four matches

Brazil vs Colombia Prediction

The last time these two met was in a friendly in 2019 and it ended 2-2. In the 2015 edition was their last meeting in Copa America and Colombia won 1-0. Looking at Brazil’s recent matches the Selecao have a steel defense conceding just three goals in ten matches. 

Colombia’s defense also improved since their thrashing 6-1 by Ecuador and conceded three goals in five matches since then. Coach Rueda needs a very strong defensive formation as he can’t risk any imbalance between his attack and defense.

We think Brazil are capable of scoring in this match as they have done in their last nine matches. Colombia will suffer against this tough Brazil defense and they will settle for a goalless draw.
