Colombia opened their Copa campaign with a 1-0 win over Ecuador before a 0-0 draw with Venezuela and a shock loss to Peru extinguished their momentum. Still, Cafeteros sits in second place in the group behind Brazil and could guarantee a place in the next round with an unlikely win against Selecao; which would be their first since 2015.

Peru’s failure to beat Ecuador earlier today leaves the door open for Brazil to qualify for the next stage as group winners with a win against Colombia. Selecao enters this match on the back of nine straight victories, going back to a 1-0 loss to Argentina in a friendly match in November 2019. Still, the Tites’ side has decided to cash in a goal and out-score their opponents 7-0. established their claims as tournament favorites.
