Copa America 2024 tips and predictions: Brazil vs Colombia - More misery for struggling Brazilians

Brazil will hope to beat Colombia and top Group D at the Copa America on Tuesday night (0200 BST, Weds) but we’re willing to bet against them.

Brazil must beat Colombia in Santa Clara during the early hours of Wednesday morning if they want to pip them to the Group D crown.

A shock 0-0 draw with Costa Rica handed the Colombians the initiative on matchday one as James Rodrguez starred in a 2-1 win against Paraguay.

They were also no match for the might of Brazil, as Vinicius Junior (2), Savinho and Lucas Paqueta scored in a 4-1 win. Meanwhile, Colombia were beating Costa Rica 3-0.

While Dorival Junior’s side is extremely unlikely to crash out of the competition, it isn’t the mathematical impossibility that fans would hope it to be by now.

Even if Selecao comes good and wins the group, a 0-0 draw with a CONCACAF minnow is another negative in just a rough two-year period.

Since losing the 2021 Copa final to Argentina on home soil, Croatia ended their World Cup hopes at the quarter-final stage, and they’re off to a poor start in 2026 qualifying.

The Brazilians are sixth in the standings thanks to a four-match winless run during which they suffered defeats against Argentina, Uruguay and their opponents here, Colombia.

That result sparked a 10-match winning run for the Colombians and extended their current unbeaten run to 25 matches across 29 months.

With qualification in the bag, we expect a fearless approach. They’ve avoided defeat in four of the last six matches and we see no reason why that run can’t continue.


Key stats

- Brazil have failed to win nine of 15 matches since the 2022 World Cup
- Brazil have won one of their last five against CONMEBOL opposition
- Colombia have avoided defeat in four of six meetings
- Colombia are unbeaten in 25 matches including a 2-1 win against Brazil
