Brazil vs Colombia Prediction

Brazil national football team have been labeled as one of the favorites to win the Copa America this summer. They dominated Paraguay with a 4-1 victory in their second game of the tournament. A win or draw against Colombia on Wednesday would confirm their spot in the quarter-finals. The Selecao have a great history against Colombia, so it would be an easy match-up for Dorival Junior’s side.

Colombia national football team, meanwhile, will find it difficult to get past Brazil given the history between both sides. But they secured their spot in the quarterfinals with their 3-0 win over Costa Rica in their last game of the tournament. Los Cafeteros will be aiming to make a statement in their final game of the Group stage.
