Our prediction for this match:
All eyes will be on Hard Rock Stadium when Brazil and Colombia face each other in an all-South American friendly. Brazil failed to impress at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, but the Selecao did remarkably well to go all the way at the 2019 Copa America in their homeland, with the team beating Peru 3-1 in the title game. Despite the fact that he doesn’t want to play for PSG anymore, Neymar will start for Brazil against Colombia and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the former Barcelona superstar.
Los Cafeteros, on the other hand, were producing fine performances at the 2019 Copa America as well, but they were more than unfortunate not to beat Chile in the quarter-finals of the tournament. Carlos Queiroz has a number of top-class players to choose from and seeing that Brazil coach Tite is likely to mix the squad against Colombia, share of spoils is on the cards.

Highlighted Team (Colombia):
Seleccion de futbol Colombia has stepped on to the international scene in 1938 with its competitive debut against Mexico. Colombia has in recent years become a national symbol of strength representing country’s efforts to fight the negative reputation.
Passionate about their football team, Colombians have formed a huge fan base which enjoyed in their team’s impressive run to the 2014 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals at the competition in which Real Madrid star James Rodriguez was awarded the Golden Boot for most goals and the Best Goal of the Tournament awards. Jose Pekerman’s team has also been named the Fair Play team at the same event.
The fans were pretty disappointed to see their team reach the quarter-final stage at the 2015 Copa America though as Colombia crashed out in disappointing fashion losing to Argentina after a penalty kick. Radamel Falcao remains the most prominent star of the current team despite his poor spells with Manchester United and Chelsea respectively. Monaco striker is also the team’s top scorer with 25 goals added to his name.
