The Brazilian national team is moving along the tournament grid of the qualifying cycle at high speed. They took ten wins and one draw – even the closest pursuer, Argentina, is 6 points behind. The third team of the South American zone has almost half the number (31 points against 17).
The victory over Colombia (4th place, 16 points) will allow winning a ticket to the World Championship ahead of schedule, six rounds before the finish. After 12 rounds, the “coffee makers” have a difficult position, who remain in the top four, but even the 11th team of Peru is only 5 points ahead.
Unfortunately for the guests, their staffing troubles will turn out to be too sensitive this time. To not concede the second time in a row seems to be almost impossible. If at home Colombia allowed the enemy to create several sharp episodes and miraculously did not miss, then in Sao Paulo, Neymar and the company will get even more scoring chances.
But now, the “coffee makers” will not have three defenders at once, who last time managed to hold back the attack of the favourite. Without them, the Brazilian national team will feel at ease in someone else’s penalty area and will score at least 2-3 goals. Here the prediction of Brazil individual total over 2.0 looks an interesting option with a pretty high coefficient of 2.3. Want to read more football predictions and don’t miss the attractive odds?
