The most anticipated Copa America Group B matchup will see South American power houses Brazil and Colombia meet at Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos in Rio De Janeiro on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
Copa America 2021 hosts Brazil entered the tournament as favorites and have lived up to expectations after a flawless two-game run. Wins against Peru and Venezuela have Tite's Brazil at the top of Group, B with six points and a goal differential of +7. Moreover, Tite's defense, which has seen a fair share of rotation over the two matches, has yet to concede a goal.
On the other hand, Colombia has been as inconsistent in Copa America as it has been in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers. A win against 1-0 Ecuador on Matchday 1, a goalless draw against rivals Venezuela on Matchday 2 and a 2-1 defeat against Peru in Matchday three has Colombia sitting second in Group B, with four points and an even goal differential.
