The unstoppable Brazil seeks to extend its streak against Colombia

Tite's canarinha has been winning all her matches for more than a year and a half. They are nine consecutive victories and they have not conceded a single goal in the last six games.


Brazil continues to do its thing in this Copa América and on Wednesday night it faces Colombia almost more concerned with doing tactical tests and staff rotations than with its rival in question. Nothing in particular with Colombia. It is that Tite's canarinha devastates anyone. He has been on a streak of more than a year and a half in which he has won all his matches. There are nine consecutive victories, 26 goals scored and only two goals conceded, both in the same game, in November of last year against Peru. Since then they have been six consecutive games without conceding a single goal. Absolute domain.

Tite did not reveal his eleven tonight but the coach is expected to continue with his laboratory, making changes in the team, giving more players minutes and testing variations, already thinking about the final stretch of preparation for the Qatar World Cup 2022. In the goal Weverton, from Palmeiras, will make his debut. Marquinhos and Casemiro, indisputable starters, must return after resting against Peru. And only Tite knows what he will decide to mount in the attack against Reinaldo Rueda's team.

Colombia, for its part, is second in the group but is playing its last match in the qualifying phase and needs to score a point before the promotion of Peru, to avoid having to do the math or face a more difficult path from the quarterfinals. Although the history is not positive for the Colombians, who have only managed to beat Brazil once in the last 30 years.Probable Brazil-Colombia alignments:
