Brazil vs. Colombia Copa America 2024 time, live stream, TV channel, lineups for Group D match

Brazil take on Colombia in their final group-stage clash at Copa America 2024 on Tuesday at Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco, with top spot in Group D up for grabs.

Unbeaten in their last 25 games, Colombia currently occupy top spot in Group C with maximum points from their two games and have already secured qualification to the quarterfinals. 

Head coach Nestor Lorenzo has guided his team on a fantastic run of results, including starting their Copa America campaign very strongly with two very convincing wins over Paraguay (2-1) and Costa Rica (3-0). They need to avoid defeat to ensure they finish top of the group and likely avoid a game against red-hot Uruguay in the last eight.

Brazil, meanwhile, come into this game with mixed form of late. Their Copa America opener, a 0-0 draw with Costa Rica, didn’t live up to the billing at all, but they crushed Paraguay 4-1 in their second fixture to go second in the group. 

Dorival Junior’s side are not yet assured of qualification and need at least a point from this game to be assured of reaching the quarterfinals. Even if they suffer a defeat against Colombia, they will likely be in the last eight thanks to a huge, positive six-goal swing in their goal differential in comparison to third-placed Costa Rica. They must, however, defeat Colombia on Tuesday in San Francisco if they are to win the group.

Brazil vs. Colombia lineups & team news

Star forward Vinicius Junior, along with Real Madrid teammate Eder Militao, West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta and Wendell, are among the Selecao players who have received a yellow card and could face a suspension, so the Brazilians may keep them on the bench to start with.

Seventeen-year-old Endrick will likely earn his first start at this tournament in place of Vinicius, having entered as a substitute in both of their matches so far.

PSG centre-back Lucas Beraldo could slot into central defence alongside his Paris Saint-Germain clubmate Marquinhos, while Andreas Pereira would be the most likely player to replace Paqueta on matchday three.

Douglas Luiz was dropped on matchday two, with Brazil head coach Dorival Junior favouring Joao Gomes and Bruno Guimaraes as the holding midfield double-pivot.

Savio justified his place in the opening lineup on Friday, scoring his first goal with the senior side. Rodrygo played as the central striker against Paraguay, but the Real Madrid wizard may return to his preferred position on the left-wing for this match. .

Brazil projected starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Alisson (GK) — Danilo, Beraldo, Marquinhos, Arana — Guimaraes, Gomes — Savio, Pereira, Rodrygo — Endrick.

Colombian skipper James Rodriguez was pulled out with less than 20 minutes left to play due to a knock on Friday, but head coach Jaime Lorenzo has confirmed that it was only as a precautionary measure.

Starting defender Jhon Lucumi survived a scare after he went down with an apparent leg injury in the 2-1 win against Paraguay in Colombia’s Group D opener, but the injury has already been deemed minor, and after missing the teamsheet against Costa Rica, he could return to feature here, with that pending a late fitness test ahead of Tuesday’s match against Brazil.

Los Cafeteros will line up in a 4-3-3 formation in front of veteran goalkeeper Camilo Vargas, with the team revolving around Rodriguez. While he’s no longer plying his trade in Europe, the former Real Madrid and Everton midfielder remains a pivotal figure for his national team and may not be risked in this game.

Should Rodriguez be benched as a precaution, 25-year-old Leeds United winger Luis Sinisterra will likely earn his first appearance at this tournament, having not featured either as a starter or a substitute in both of their matches thus far.

Luis Diaz scored the 13th goal for his country on matchday two, converting an opening-half penalty, while Ivan Cordoba and Davinson Sanchez scored the other goals.

Colombia projected starting lineup (4-3-3): Vargas — Munoz, Sanchez, Cuesta, Machado — Castano, Uribe, Arias — Sinisterra, Duran, Diaz.

Brazil vs. Colombia prediction

  • Score prediction: Brazil 2-2 Colombia

Given Colombia have already secured progression to the next round and Brazil are currently leading Costa Rica by three points with a vastly superior goal differential (+3 to -3), it is quite possible that both teams are looking ahead and have started making plans for the quarterfinals.

With both sides set to take a safety-first approach in a bid to avoid risking injuries and suspensions, TSN expect an entertaining, closely-contested contest with some young talent on each side keen to impress the onlookers.
