Brazil

For more than thirty minutes on Friday, it seemed like we were witnessing a similar tale for the Brazilians, who had squandered several goalscoring opportunities once again. However, contrary to matchday one, Dorival Junior’s men finally became ruthless in front of goal and poured it on a lowly Paraguayan team. Brazil ultimately secured a 4-1 over Paraguay to record their biggest win in a competitive fixture since September 2023.

The Selecao’s win on matchday two snapped a three-game losing streak against CONMEBOL opponents, as they had lost their previous three meetings with that group prior to Friday. Therefore, all they have to do to go past the group stage for the 14th time in their previous 15 Copa America appearances is to avoid losing on matchday three.

Colombia

Colombia’s sixth consecutive appearance in the Copa America quarterfinals comes after another exceptional display on Friday. Los Cafeteros have a 100% record this year and have won six games on the bounce during their current 25-match unbeaten streak in all competitions.

Néstor Lorenzo’s men haven’t conceded a goal in the first half since 2023; the most recent comeback win came against Mexico. On Tuesday, Los Cafeteros have the opportunity of securing consecutive wins against five-time world champions Brazil for the first time ever.

Head To Head

Brazil have dominated the head-to-head matchup against Colombia. However, Colombia have surprisingly won 2 of their last 5 encounters with Brazil.

Key Performers

Bruno Guimarães is gradually becoming a mainstay in Brazil’s midfield, Guimarães is known for his ability to control the tempo of the game and pick out a pass. He’ll be key for Brazil in dictating the play against Colombia.

Luis Dias is Colombia’s main attacking threat, Diaz is always dangerous in front of goal. The Liverpool winger be looking to cause problems for the Brazilian defense.

Verdict

Brazil leads Costa Rica by three points in second place, on the other hand, Colombia have already advanced to the knockout stage, suggesting that both teams might be set their sight on the knockout stage. We expect a dicey but interesting match, with some talented young players on both sides keen to make an impression, while neither team wants to take a chance on injuries or suspensions.
