Brazil v Colombia Betting
2014 World Cup - Quarter Finals
4th June - KO: 9pm BST -
The 2014 World Cup hosts, Brazil continue their bid to win a sixth finals when they take on fellow South Americans Colombia in Friday's quarter final.
Unbeaten in the competition so far, Brazil topped Group A with two wins and a draw but were unconvincing in the main. Phil Scolari's side followed that trend in the second round when beating Chile on a penalty shootout. An own goal had put the hosts in the lead but that was soon wiped out by an Alexis Sanchez strike. Stalemate followed before an eventual win over Chile in a shootout but Brazil will have to play better against this talented Colombia side.
Colombia topped Group C with three wins and they made it four with a comfortable 2-0 win over fellow South Americans Uruguay. James Rodriguez was man of the match scoring both goals and he is the danger man for Brazil.
Colombia have just win against Brazil in 14 matches and that came back in 1991. The last four games between the two however have been draws and three of which were goalless. This will be Colombia's first time in the World Cup quarter finals.
The hosts are odds on to win the match and qualify for the semi finals.

Neymar - The Brazil forward has scored four times during the group stages and continues to be the talisman for a team who are offering very little other than the Barcelona man going forward.
James Rodriguez - The Monaco playmaker has been the player of the tournament so far with his five goals and thunderbolt against Colombia in the second round. Rodriguez can expose a shaky looking Brazil defence.
