BRAZIL v COLOMBIA BETTING PREVIEWBrazil endured a dismal Copa America campaign during the summer, but the country's confidence in the national team has since been boosted by the Olympic squad winning gold on home soil. They earned a morale boosting 3-0 away win at Ecuador in the previous round of the World Cup qualifiers, their first win in Ecuador in 33 years. New Man City talent Gabriel Jesus scored twice in the final three minutes to ensure that the Selecao return home with all three points.
New Brazil boss Tite is expected to stick with the side that took the field against Ecuador. This means that Gabriel Jesus will retain his berth of central forward in a 4-1-4-1 formation with Neymar and Willian deployed as offensive wingers.
Colombia enter the match on the back of Thursday's 2-0 win at home to Venezuela and they have won three qualifying games on the spin and sit third in the table, with 13 points, while Brazil have 12 in fifth. The Cafeteros have recently beaten Brazil in the Copa America 2015 (1-0) but they have suffered a 2-0 defeat in the semifinal of the Olympic tournament this summer.
Striker Teofilo Gutierrez is out through injury while midfielder Daniel Torres serves a suspension, so Edwin Cardona should come into the midfield. Jose Pekerman will field a very offensive team, with a quick attacking trident of Carlos Bacca flanked by James Rodriguez and Luis Muriel. Other attacking weapons such as Juan Cuadrado and Marlos Moreno could play in the 2nd half.
