Brazil v Colombia Copa America live stream and tips - Coffeers facing unexpected early exit

It's do or die for Colombia at the Copa America on Wednesday evening as they eye revenge against Brazil for their quarter-final elimination at the hands of the Samba Boys at the hands of last year's World Cup.

José Salomón Rondón scored the only goal of the game in the 60th minute in the central Chilean city of Rancagua to give Venezuela maximum points leaving Colombia, who were tipped as outsiders for the tournament, facing an early exit should they lose to Brazil in midweek.

Colombia now need a result against the Samba Boys to avoid group stage elimination and could be without the services of James Rodríguez after he appeared to injure his right shoulder in the closing stages of the match.

"We regret the defeat but congratulate Venezuela for being a great opponent," said manager Jose Pekerman after the game. "This is a typical opening match in the Copa America, where it always takes a little time to find the rhythm.

"Unfortunately in this game the result has not helped. We could not link the game and complete the passes that we usually do. We had difficulties."

Looking ahead to the Brazil fixture, Pekerman added: "We will not change our system of play, all rivals are important."

The Brazilians come into the clash on the back of a narrow 2-1 win over Peru in their opener. Douglas Costa's late goal gave The Green and Yellow victory in what was a far from convincing display from the Dunga's side.

Peru had taken a third-minute lead through forward Christian Cueva after some sloppy defensive display from the Selecao but Barcelona forward Neymar equalised when he headed home moments later.

The 23-year-old was a constant thorn in the side for the Peruvian defense and turned provider in injury time when he teed up Costa to secure the points.

"Neymar was decisive but Dani Alves was decisive, Miranda was decisive at certain moments, Douglas Costa was decisive," Dunga told reporters after the game. 
"You talk about Neymar and say that he made the pass for the goal but Dani Alves made a pass for a goal."

Despite the nature of their win, Brazil have now won their last 11 matches and conceded just three goals since their ignominious exit from last summer's World Cup.

Brazil last won the Copa America in 2007 when they beat Argentina in the final and will be determined to emulate that achievement in order to restore some pride following their humiliating 7-1 defeat at the hands of Germany in the World Cup semi-finals.
