Brazil v Colombia Odds & Betting Tips – World Cup 2014 Betting
Brazil v Colombia Betting Preview – World Cup 2014
Brazil had to survive a massive scare in the round of sixteen as had to endure a penalty shoot-out against Chile. With the Selecao looking rattled throughout the match by the solid and enterprising Chileans, it cast doubts once again over their ability to handle the pressure and go all the way and win the tournament. But they are in the final eight, will have heavy home support in this all-South American duel and they still are blessed with match winners. The Selecao go as favourites, but they are the longest odds that they have been in any match so far at the World Cup at 5/6. They will be missing Luis Gustavo in midfield through suspension.
Neymar failed to press his influence on Chile very much, but he has already shown this tournament that he has the golden touch. He is trading as even money favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, with Fred, Jo and Hulk at 2/1. Brazil are still on a long unbeaten streak, not having lost any of their last thirteen, and winning eleven of those. This is their first ever meeting at the World Cup with Colombia, and in the overall head to head, Brazil hold a massive 15-2 lead. The last four matches between the two have all ended in draws, three of them finishing 0-0.
Given the way that Chile frustrated Brazil, Colombia could take advantage here and they look value to back to cause an upset. They have looked one of the classiest outfits of all teams at the World Cup, having played with a tremendous spirit and intensity. They haven’t missed Radamel Falcao one iota, and have won all their games so far, outscoring the Brazilians in the tournament too. They have just been more clinical upfront, having produced a better shot to goal ratio, and they have found a star in James Rodriguez, his five goals in four matches putting him in the spotlight. Rodriguez is a 2/1 shot in he anytime goalscorer market.
They have historically struggled for goals against Brazil, netting just eleven in 25 previous meetings, and this should be an enduring battle, so worth looking under 2.5 goals. Colombia are unbeaten in their last 11 matches, and are no slouches here. They may just have the bite in the middle of the park and strength at the back to cause an upset here. No other team at the World Cup has looked more decisive or more clinical on the break than the Colombians. They have also won their last five matches play now, conceding just the two goals.
