Brazil vs Colombia: Recent form of both the teams:
Brazil comes into this game having made the perfect start to defend their Copa America title. They have won their last nine matches and are in sublime form. They started the campaign with a 3-0 victory over Venezuela followed by a 4-0 victory over Peru. Brazil will look to add a third victory to earn a favourable quarter-final draw.

Although Colombia sits second in the group, they have failed to impress so far at the tournament. They have accumulated four points from their opening three group matches with very inconsistent performances. Since their win in the opening game against Ecuador, they have looked disappointing in their past two games. Locking horns with the red hot favourites will not be an easy task and they have to be at their best to beat the hosts.

Brazil vs Colombia: Team News, head to head record and Probable starting xi
The hosts were able to rotate heavily between the two opening group games. Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, Liverpool’s Fabinho and Chelsea’s Thiago Silva all coming into the side for the Peru match. Talisman Neymar will remain fixed in the front three. The Brazilian is having an impressive tournament so far with two goals and one assist in the opening two games.
Brazil possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Danilo, Militao, Marquinhos, Sandro; Richarlison, Fabinho, Casemiro, Everton; Neymar, Jesus
However, Rueda may have to reshuffle his side, after another disappointing performance from Colombia last time out. Luis Muriel could return to the side because the front three in the last game didn’t look threatning at all. Wilmar Barrios have been their best player on the pitch and will again play a crucial role in the midfield. Colombia will heavily rely on Juan Cuadrado to cover their flanks.
Colombia possible starting lineup:
Ospina; Medina, Sanchez, Mina, Tesillo; Cuadrado, Barrios, Cuellar, Uribe, Diaz; Muriel
Head to head:
When it comes to head to head, Brazil has tore Colombia apart in the past. The two teams have played 32 games against each other, while Brazil have won 19 and drew 10. However, only on 3 occasions Colombia has managed to win.
