Colombia (5th in World Cup Qualifying standings) take on Brazil (3rd in World Cup Qualifying standings) in a World Cup Qualifier, at the Estadio Metropolitano, at 00:00 AM (GMT).
A win for Brazil would take them into 2nd place, putting them on 10 points after five games. They would still remain at least two points behind leaders Argentina, possibly even five points behind depending on their result against Uruguay.
Brazil are missing some key players, with the likes of Casemiro, Gabriel Jesus and Neymar all missing for this international break.
