GOOD EVENING FROM RIO
Welcome to our live coverage of the Copa America group stage match between Brazil and Colombia at the Olympic Stadium.
The Selecao have been flying in the competition their country is hosting as they won both of their two games so far against Venezuela and Peru.
Brazil manager Tite made a series of changes last time out against Peru and could do the same against the Tricolor but expect Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar to start again.
The ex-Barcelona star currently counts two goals and one assist in both his matches at the Copa America and thus poses as the hosts’ most dangerous player.
Neymar is also after a very special record as he needs just nine more international goals to equal Pele’s legendary tally of 77.
Tite seems indecisive regarding the player he wants between the sticks as both Liverpool star Alisson and Manchester City ace Ederson have started.
It is likely, however, that Marquinhos, Casemiro and Everton favourite Richarlison could return to Brazil’s starting line-up.
Tite’s openness on rotation also gives high hope to other Premier League stars, such as Chelsea’s Thiago Silva, City’s Gabriel Jesus and of course Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino.
Colombia manager Reinaldo Rueda, on the other hand, is expected to get an important boost with Porto duo Mateus Uribe and Luis Diaz returning from suspension
