BRAZIL v COLOMBIA BETTING PREVIEWBrazil looked pretty fragile in their round of sixteen match against Chile, where they were taken all the way to a penalty shoot out. The game finished 1-1 at the end of 90 minutes and there were no goals in extra time. Given they were also held to a 0-0 draw by Mexico in the group stage the Brazilians have been far from dominant. Anyway, the Seleçao have a fairly decent defensive record which is why we agree that they have to be favourites here. Scolari’s side have conceded just four goals in their last 11 games
They have lost the services of Luis Gustavo in midfield because of suspension while Neymar will recover just in time for the clash. Scolari will likely bring in Paulinho, who had lost his spot in the starting line-up after struggling mightily in the group stage. He is expected to get the nod over Hernanes to start alongside Fernandinho. Elsewhere it is unlikely to see changes to the starting line-up.
Colombia have been perhaps the most prolific side in the competition so far, scoring eleven and conceding just two in reaching the Quarter-Finals for the first time in their history. They have won all four of their games so far and three of those came by a margin of two goals or more. James Rodriguez in a very similar way. Rodriguez is the tournament’s top scorer with five goals so far, including a stunning volley in victory over Uruguay in the Round of 16.
Los Cafeteros have no injury concerns ahead of the match. Pekerman may name an unchanged team from the side that beat Uruguay. This will means that Gutierrez and Rodriguez will support Jackson Martinez up-front while Adrian Ramos and Ibarbo will start from the bench once again.
These two have never met before at the World Cup, but they have faced each other a lot of times throughout history, this being their 26th meeting. The Brazilians hold a massive 15-2 lead in the head to head with Colombia's last triumph coming in the 1991 Confederations Cup.
