In one of the matches of the 4th round of the group stage of the Copa America, Brazil will face Colombia. Do the Colombians have a chance?
Brazil confidently performed in the opening two rounds, thanks to which, before the third round, it guaranteed itself a place in the playoffs. In the first match, Neymar and company defeated Venezuela (3-0), and in the second, they did not notice Peru (4-0). With six points, the Brazilians lead Group B, two points ahead of second-placed Colombia. Despite the fact that the task of reaching the playoffs is solved, Brazil will not fool around, but will try to continue the winning path in order to also win the group.
Colombia scored four points after three rounds and were in danger of relegation. The upcoming match is her last in the group stage, and if she loses, there is a high probability of falling to fifth place and ending the fight at the tournament. Consequently, the Colombians will make every effort to cling to at least a draw. However, even this can be a problem, because in the previous round, the Colombians unexpectedly lost to Peru (1-2), before that they could not break the defense of Venezuela (0-0), and in the first round they only minimally defeated Ecuador (1-0).
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Felipe (knee injury) - Brazil.
Statistics and figures:
- Brazil has two wins in two matches;
- Colombia won in one match out of three;
- Colombia won against Brazil in one of the last 18 matches.
It's time for Colombia to improve the history of personal meetings with Brazil and win, otherwise you can fly out of the Copa America. The Brazilians are in great shape now, so it's a thankless task to bet against them, but I think it's worth trying to score a goal against Colombia.
