Brazil vs Colombia: Selecao can shade tight tussle

Kick-off: 0030, 12/11/2021

Stadium: Neo Quimica Arena

Brazil are runaway leaders in the South American World Cup qualifying group but usually find fourth-placed Colombia tricky opponents.

Last month’s goalless stalemate in Barranquilla was a third draw in four head-to-head meetings, with the Selecao just winning 2-1 during this summer’s Copa America.

We’re going for the hosts to prevail by any one-goal margin again in Sao Paulo at 9/4 for our first Brazil vs Colombia prediction.

A Look At Brazil’s Betting Odds

Brazil have won all of their other 10 fixtures in this pool, scoring 26 goals and conceding only four.

Last time out, the Selecao stormed to a 4-1 triumph over Uruguay on home turf in Manaus.

Neymar opened the scoring and Raphinha added a brace before Gabriel Barbosa responded to Luis Suarez’s consolation strike.

Barbosa, Roberto Firmino, Richarlison and Malcom are absent for this international break but Tite’s men can still shade a tight tussle.

Looking at the Brazil vs Colombia odds, we like 3/1 for Draw HT/Brazil FT.

A Look At Colombia’s Betting Odds

Colombia must cope without talismanic forward Radamel Falcao through injury but do still have some strong attacking weapons.

Atalanta strike duo Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel are always a handful at club level.

James Rodriguez is back available and has 23 international goals to his credit, while Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado has reached double figures.

Despite that, Los Cafeteros really are struggling to find a cutting edge up front.

Their last three matches have all been goalless, drawing with Uruguay and Ecuador either side of the Brazil stalemate.

Reinaldo Rueda will set up his team to be hard to beat here, but 9/2 for a 1-0 home win completes our Brazil vs Colombia betting tips.
