Duel between the leader and 2nd placed team in this group.
It can be sort of a harder practice for Brazil, since they already qualified for the World Cup and have their leadership ensured.
For Colombia, this is a very important match on their road to Russia and, depending on the other results, the Colombians can even get a bigger advantage than they already have to the 6th place.
Rested on their last match, where Colombia couldn’t get more than a 0-0 draw against Venezuela, James Rodriguez can be the main key player for them because,
with this return, Pékerman gains a lot of quality on his midfield, since James is the best and most important player in this team.
Brazil, despite already having qualified, faces each game like this is the World Cup already and the mindset for this match won’t be any different.
After a tough 2-0 win against Ecuador at home, Tite’s team shouldn’t have many surprises besides the already certain absences of Miranda and Marcelo, who are suspended, that should make way for Tiago Silva and Filipe Luís.
It has all the ingredients to be a big match, with a lot of goal chances and both teams looking to score and creating tons of opportunities.
These are two of the best South-American teams, as we can see by the group standings, even with Colombia having a small advantage to the 3rd and 4th place.
Colombia vs Brazil – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I see a more organized Brazil with a better squad, with players living their best moments of their career and with a lot of weapons to attack this match,
be it with individual plays or even with some substitutions, as it happened on Brazil’s last match, where Coutinho was subbed in and changed the whole game.
On the Colombian side, the team depends a lot on James and Falcao and if one of them is having a bad day, things just don’t seem to work out for them,
as we could see against Venezuela, where James was rested and Falcao didn’t do much, where they weren’t even able to score against one of the worst teams in this group.
I believe that Brazil will be hard to beat and we can use the DNB market or the Handicaps favouring the Brazilian team.
I see this as bets with a lot of value and a small-risk investment, although never forgetting that this is football and risk is always present.
