All eyes will be on Neymar as Brazil lock horns against Colombia in a Copa America Group A fixture…
Brazil have two wins is as many games in the current edition of Copa America as they are set to host Colombia at the Estadio Nilton Santon on Thursday.
A confident 90 minutes against Peru – against whom Colombia lost 2-1 – saw the Selecao emerge victorious 4-0 in Rio in their last outing. Brazil are the outright favourites going into the competition and their performances have certainly been top notch. In their two games, they are yet to leak in a goal which highlights their defensive solidity.
Colombia have had mixed results in the continental competition this time as they have four points from three games having registered a win, draw and a defeat. Coach Reinaldo Rivera will be concerned that his side have just managed to score two goals in three matches.
