Paddy Power have announced they are enhancing the price on Brazil to beat Colombia tonight, from 5/6 to a mouth watering price of 4/1! OR get Colombia at 12/1!More details below!
Brazil showed their metal as they beat Chile 3-2 on penalties after their tie ended 1-1, Alexis Sanchez cancelling out David Luiz’s opener.
The result, whilst a far cry from the goal-laden displays against Croatia and Cameroon showed that Phil Scolari’s men could dig in deep when required.
Colombia meanwhile have won all four of their clashes to date and will head into their last 8 clash as the form team of the tournament. Jose Pekerman’s side have scored 11 goals and conceded just one on their way to wins over Greece, the Ivory Coast, Japan and Uruguay.
The star of the show so far has without doubt being James Rodriquez.
The 22 year old has scored five goals and created two since being moved from the wing into the number 10 role and his performances have ensured that the country have not missed star forward Radamel Falcao.
The Monaco has found support from Juan Cuadrado (four assists) and Jackson Martinez (two goals) meaning that Colombia have plenty of options up front.
The same can’t be said of Brazil however with Fred and Hulk yet to inspire at the World Cup so far.
Half of Brazil’s goal have come from the boot of Neymar with Fred scoring just once, in the win over Cameroon, and Hulk yet to get off the mark.
The Barcelona man is set to shake off a knee injury sustained against Chile to lead the line against Colombia while the absence of the suspended Luiz Gustavo could see Scolari shuffle his pack with the former Chelsea coach tipped to go with three at the back to combat the attacking threat of Colombia.
Los Cafeteros meanwhile have no injury worries ahead of the game and in addition to their strong attacking capabilities will look to a defence marshalled by the 38 year old Mario Yepes and Cristian Zapata to contain the Brazilian forwards.
Friday’s meeting between the sides will be the 26th clash and based on history the advantage would appear to lie with Brazil. The Verde-Amarela have lost just twice to their lesser known rivals, the last defeat coming way back in 1991.
Since then they have won 7 and drawn 5 of their clashes with the last four meetings between the teams ending all square.
