    [​IMG] vs. [​IMG]

    Match 11, Estádio David Arellano (Estádio Monumental), Santiago, Chile.

    [​IMG]

    After a last-minute 2-1 win over Peru in the opener, Brazil seeks its 2nd win in the 2015 Copa América (and 12th straight since the 2014 World Cup) with its quarterfinal opponent from that competition: Colombia.

    Brazil faced its South American neighbor once since the World Cup, with a 1-0 victory, and while this will be the 3rd match between the two teams in a 12-month period, it is the first time since 1991 that their paths cross in Copa América competition. That year, Chile was the host nation as it is in 2015, and Colombia defeated Brazil 2-0 in the group stage - only to be defeated by Brazil with the same score in the final stage. Neither of those two matches occurred at the Monumental stadium - Colombia's win happened at Sausalito, and Brazil's victory occurred at Julio Martínez Prádanos (Estádio Nacional) stadium.

    Last match:
    Brazil 1, Colombia 0 (9/5/2014, friendly match).

    Saw the Peru match. For this upcoming match Dunga needs to take out Fred put Douglas Costa in his place,start Firmino and put T.Silva in D.Luiz spot. Colombia is going to come out desperate. that means they will leave open spaces. Colombia needs a win not a draw.

    In his first stint, Dunga was reluctant to make changes from game-to-game. It would be refreshing to see (because it'll show he has changed), but I'd be surprised to see it.

    3 points IMO is a must. I don't want to go into the final fixture with 4 points and Venezuela with a possible 6. Like I said in the other thread, let take out one of the favorites now. I don't want a give Colombia a life line. A win for us will most likely knock them out of the competition.

    Hopefully Coutinho is back and reclaim his spot over Fred. Firmino and Thiago Silva must start.

    Will Fernandinho stay in the game or will he be red-carded? Considering how South American refs function I think as long as he tackles James when James is running, and as long as he convinces the ref he's going for the ball (even if he misses it) he's good. If he makes an occasional tactical foul here and there, he's screwed.

    Seriously though, Colombia is in a slightly different shape than the WC but this is the key match-up for our defense for many reasons. Our defense was nervous and unprotected against Peru. Will likely happen again here.

    Colombia are not on a must win situation. A tie will do just fine. Keep in mind 2 of the 3 best 3rd places go through. A tie and a win vs Peru would definitely be enough for them.

    Cuadrado is there most dangerous player IMO.

    I expect Fernandinho and Elias to hack James. This game is gonna be ugly. Definitely a few yellows and possibly a red.

    I want to see Everton ribiero in the starting lineup in place of Elias he was the guy who started the break to 2nd goal.

    That'd be a disaster. Dunga would be more likely to call me and Rildo up for the wc qualifiers.

    Tomorrow is a big day for Brazil, 1st our U-20 faces Senegal in the semifinals, then our Women's team(who already won their group) faces C. Rica, and last the showdown between Neymar and James when we face Colombia in a must win game for them!!

    While the U-20 game is on Wednesday in New Zealand it's at 9pm for me here on the West Coast. New Zealand time isn't so bad at this point in the tournament :p

    I'm sure Dunga will go with the same lineup as in the Peru game!! Only expect changes if we win, lose, or Neymar gets suspended!!:x3:

    If Coutinho is 100% I expect him to start. Dunga is stubborn, but Coutinho was clearly his first choice before the injury.

    The circumstances are radically different, but it's amazing (and not necessarily in a good way) how different the expectations, the vibrancy, and the passion are for Brazil at this moment, within this tournament, compared to 1 year ago. However, I think that for a person like Dunga, this is precisely what best suits him - he has often thrived under less than positive circumstances. The Copa América he won 8 years ago comes to mind.

    Looks like David Luiz is out of the starting lineup.

    Jefferson; Dani Alves, T.Silva, Miranda, Filipe Luis; Elias, Fernandinho, Fred; Neymar, Firmino, Willian.

    Good changes by Dunga that what I want to see from our coach. Only thing missing is Coutinho but I guess he isn't completely fit.

    I like this line-up. We'll see if Fred improved.
