A first defeat of Brazil in the Copa America
The Group C match between Brazil and Colombia has attracted many online betting. The Seleção experienced its first defeat at the Copa America after its second game against the Colombian selection. The Cafeteros are therefore back in the tournament after having been beaten by Venezuela (0-1) on the first day of competition. After having beaten Peru (2-1) in a tough match, Brazil was defeated on Wednesday (1-0) despite widespread dominance in possession. Dunga's men have failed to contain the Colombians throughout the game. An altercation late in the game involving several players has even led to the expulsion of Neymar and the Colombian striker Bacca. The captain of the Seleção will miss at least the next two games. Neymar saw red and his team is in poor posture.
The Auriverde have mastered the first minutes of the match before losing control under the leadership of James Rodriguez and the very physical game of his teammates. The face of the game changed suddenly in favor of Jose Pekerman men who put pressure on defenders with several kicks. Jefferson cracked finally in the 36th minute following a Jeison Murillo goal from a corner. Neymar nearly equalized just before the break, but Ospina was able to intervene. The Brazilians did everything to come from behind in the second period, but that success was not at the rendezvous.
