Colombia maintained a 100% record at the group stages but couldn't make it to the final.

So this is a strong test as they wish to bounce back to winning ways.

Colombia will be missing the services of their veteran strikers Falcao and James Rodriguez as they both suffer ankle injury and calf injury respectively while playing for their respective clubs.

With the absence of this duo coach Carlos Queiroz has invited Atlanta duo Zapata and Luis Muriel as a great replacement for the veterans strikers.

Zapata has been in good scoring form scoring 2 goals in two Serie A matches.

With a very composed defense line up Colombia has only concerned once in their last 8 matches.

Betting Tips

With the return of Nermay Jr. to the squad, Brazil will be favorite to come out victorious as they continue their dominance over Colombia.

Under 2.5

With both teams parading a composed, discipline and impressive defenders, so it will be actually very hard to witness so many goals against these top defense therefore we are expecting a relatively low scoring encounter.
