Analysis and forecast for the match on the 5th day of qualifying for the Colombia 2026 World Cup – Brazil (11/17/2023)
While the European teams qualify for the Euro Cup, the American teams participate in the qualification for the 2026 World Cup. On November 17, Colombia will host Brazil in one of the matches on the fifth day of the group stage at the Estadio Metropolitano Roberto . Melendez. The meeting will begin at 3:00 Moscow time.
A great fight awaits the fans:
Ivan Shtyrkov – Vladimir Mineev. The Ural Hulk doesn’t have kickboxing, but he has character
The Cafeteros are sixth in the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers classification with six points. They are very weak in attack, scoring only three goals in four games, but they maintain a solid defense and concede two goals. The difference with the leader Argentina is six points.
Colombia has not yet lost in qualifying for the 2026 World Cup. It won the match against Venezuela 1-0, and in the other three matches it tied with Chile (0-0), Uruguay (2-2) and Ecuador (0: 0). Will it be possible to maintain the trend after the match with Brazil?
The November games are very important for the coffee growers, because they will have to play not only with the Brazilians, but also with Paraguay. Reynaldo Rueda called up three RPL players for these important matches: John Córdoba from Krasnodar, Jorge Carrascal from Dynamo Moscow and Mateo Cassierra from Zenit. Wilmar Barrios did not make the cut.
It is true that Mateo could not travel with the national team due to the injury he suffered in Zenit’s last match against Krasnodar. Juan Camilo Hernández joined in his place. But his agent responded that Barrios was not called up for the November games. According to him, the coach decided to give other players a chance, but Vilmar will surely be called up next time. It’s a good thing the reasons are so simple.
Brazil is in third place in the Euro 2024 standings. The team scored seven points, but Uruguay and Venezuela had exactly the same amount. So far the team’s results are not impressive. First, the yellowish greens defeated Bolivia 5-1 and then Peru 1-0. The Brazilians tied with Venezuela 1:1. They were also defeated in the match with Uruguay by 0-2. It is noteworthy that during the entire match the “chosen ones” only took one shot on goal and none on goal.
Martínez doesn’t let you relax:
Liechtenstein-Portugal. Roberto Martínez keeps Cristiano Ronaldo alert
Neymar will not be able to attend the November games due to injury. But for the first time Endrik, 17, who had already signed for Real Madrid, received an invitation. He will become his footballer immediately after reaching the age of majority, but for now he represents Palmeiras. The last time Ronaldo was included in Brazil at such a young age was in 1993.
Gabriel Jesus was also included in the lineup and already showed Endrik where he ended up. During training for the Brazilian team, the Arsenal striker at one point performed a force movement within the rules and sent the young footballer to the grass. This episode reminded many of a similar incident involving Pelé. Fans and experts are already saying that the future Real Madrid player will be able to reach the same heights as the Brazilian legend.
The doors of the “elect” are under reliable protection. Alison Becker and Ederson will compete for the primary goalie spot. Also called up were such famous footballers as Gabriel Martinelli, Vinicius Junior, Marquinhos and others. It will be interesting to see how the yellow-greens cope without Neymar.
We believe that without their main star the Brazilians will be able to show even better results than before. The footballers who remained in the shadows will come to the fore. They will have the opportunity to prove their worth. Young Endrik will be especially motivated. And although he still has little experience and physical strength, the desire to show himself cannot be taken away from him. Let’s bet that Brazil will win in 2.25.
Prediction and bets for the match Colombia – Brazil November 17, 2023
The “Cafeteros” skillfully hold on to a draw in very difficult matches, control the pace and defend well. Although the defense did not save the Colombians from conceding two goals in the match with Uruguay. Neymar’s absence motivates other Brazilian footballers; Endrick, 17, called up to the national team for the first time, will have the opportunity to prove his worth if he takes the field. We believe that the “elected” will win.
Tender: Brazil wins by 2.25.
