It’s second versus first as Colombia and Brazil lock horns at the Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Melendez in the South American section of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Jose Pekerman’s side come into this tie on the back of a 0-0 draw against Venezuela. The result sees them remain in second place but with the likes of Chile, Uruguay and Argentina still close behind them, they’ll need to win which LionsBet quotes at (3.00).

The five-time world champions have been so solid at the back as they have conceded just twice in their last nine qualifiers. Punters who are brave can back them to win to nil at (3.55).
