Brazil vs Colombia build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Brazil have been the kings of South America in CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifying and they have carried that domination over to the start of the 2021 Copa America, remaining perfect after two games. That perfect record doesn’t just mean two wins either, as Brazil are also yet to concede, scoring seven goals without reply in 3-0 and 4-0 victories over Venezuela and Peru respectively. As a result, Brazil have already secured their spot in the quarter-finals of the Copa America with two games to spare and now they will be looking to all-but secure top spot for the best possible tie in the next round.
While Brazil have two games left in the group stages, Colombia play their final match on Thursday and will be hoping to use it to secure their spot in the quarter-finals. With four of the five teams from Group B qualifying, Colombia are unlikely to miss out, but they will want the safety net that comes with at least a point against Brazil. Los Cafeteros had gone unbeaten in their first two games of the group, beating Ecuador and drawing with Venezuela, but they missed the opportunity to secure qualification last time out as they were beaten 2-1 by Peru.
- Brazil (vs Peru): Ederson; Danilo, Silva, Militao, Alex Sandro; Fred, Fabinho; Jesus, Neymar, Everton; Barbosa.
- Colombia (vs Peru): Ospina; Medina, Sanchez, Mina, Tesillo; Barrios, Perez; Cuadrado, Cardona, Zapata; Borja.
Neither side has any fresh injury concerns.

Players to watch:
- Brazil: Tite has the benefit of the best squad at the Copa America and has been able to rotate between matches, so you can expect him to do the same against Colombia. One of those tipped to start is Richarlison who has been a bright spark for Brazil whether starting or coming off the bench. The Everton man had a decent opening game against Venezuela despite not scoring but made his real mark in just 45 minutes against Peru, setting up Everton Ribeiro and scoring in injury time to put the gloss on a comfortable win. The goal was Richarlison’s 10th for Brazil in just 27 caps, a decent record at a time the nation are crying out for a new leader at the head of the pitch.
- Colombia: The best chance for Colombia against Brazil will be keeping their potent attack out, and Yerry Mina will be among those trying to keep the hosts (and Everton teammate Richarlison) out. Mina is the rock of the Colombian defence, ever-present when fit to lead from the back, comfortable both with the ball at his feet and in the air. He was the unfortunate scorer of an own goal against Peru that lost Colombia the game, but that will only add to Mina’s motivation to shut Brazil’s attack down. If Mina is on his game, Brazil could be restricted.
