Reinaldo Reyna could make changes to the Colombian forward line with Duvan Zapata a possibility to replace either Radamel Falcao or Rafael Santos Borre who both started in the goalless draw with Uruguay.
The hosts have no major players missing though for the visit of the continent’s most in-form side.
Brazil for their part are without Casemiro who pulled out of the squad with a tooth problem, although Neymar should return having missed the win in Venezuela through suspension.
Colombia vs Brazil preview
La Canarinha’s 3-1 win in Caracas on Thursday saw them concede only their third goal in nine qualifying matches.
Indeed, Brazil have kept seven clean sheets in the tournament so far, in stark contrast to Colombia who have managed just three shut-outs in 10 matches.
The visitors should be fancied to record another win given their form and quality, yet it should be a tight encounter in the humidity of the Caribbean city of Barranquilla, where Colombia generally tend to compete well against the continent’s most powerful footballing nations.
Brazil’s last visit ended in a 1-1 draw and backing another low-scoring game should appeal.
Colombia vs Brazil tips & predictions
Brazil to win and under 3.5 goals in the game is offered at 6/4 (2.50) and looks like an appealing option, one which has paid out in six of the Brazilians’ last seven World Cup qualifiers.
