Colombia vs Brazil: prediction for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier match
Colombia had a good Copa America earlier this year. Los Cafeteros reached the semifinals, where they were defeated by Argentina. Colombia won the third-place game against Peru with a score of 3:2.
However, Reinaldo Rueda's men have difficulties in the World Cup qualification. They won only 3 games out of 10 and 5 times the matches were tied. This brought Colombia 14 points and 5th place in the table. After beating Chile (3:1), Colombia recorded a goalless draw at Uruguay.
Brazil suffered a defeat in the final of Copa America at the hands of their principal rivals, Argentina, but the five-time world champions show better results in the qualification for the 2022 World Cup. After 9 rounds, Brazil top the table with an eight points lead against the closest pursuers. Brazil have conceded only 3 goals in the qualifying games, which shows how good the defense of Selecao is at the moment.
On Friday Brazil played at Venezuela. They were losing after the first half, but after halftime, Tite's charges demonstrated their attacking abilities and class and scored three goals in 20 minutes (3:1).
Both teams scored in the last 3 head-to-head games.
In the last 2 head-to-head games, Brazil overcame the total.
This bet won in the last 2 head-to-head games.
The hosts have no room for error: their ticket to Qatar is at stake. Brazil have almost secured a pass to the 2022 World Cup, but they will play for prestige and strive to get another victory anyway. The Yellow-greens are head and shoulders above Colombia in terms of class and performance, and we believe that they will pocket three points in the upcoming fixture.
Our prediction - Brazil to win
In 2 of the last 4 head-to-head games, no more than two goals were scored. We think that this is a likely result for today's game, too.
Second bet -total under 2.5 goals
