Colombia, on a 25-match unbeaten run, faces Brazil in Copa America. Coach Nestor Lorenzo emphasizes Colombia is not the favorite despite recent form.

Bollywood Fever: Colombia enters Tuesday’s Copa America match against Brazil riding a 25-match unbeaten streak, but coach Nestor Lorenzo remains cautious, emphasizing that his side should not be considered favorites against the five-time World Cup winners.

Colombia has already secured a spot in the quarter-finals after two consecutive wins in Group D. They need at least a draw at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara to secure the top position. Brazil, who have won just two of their last six encounters with Colombia, currently sit second in the group after drawing their opening game against Costa Rica and thrashing Paraguay 4-1.

“With Brazil, you are never a favorite; they are a team with a lot of history,” Lorenzo said in a news conference on Monday. “We are just beginning to write a few pages of the history of Colombia, which has been very good at some point, but we hope for more. To maintain it, we will do our best to be up to it.”

Lorenzo stressed the importance of securing first place in the group, despite already qualifying for the next stage. “The priority is to come out first in the group. Beyond being qualified, we want the first place. The team will go out to play in the best way,” he added.

The Argentine-born coach noted that he expects a different challenge from Brazil compared to their previous encounter, where Colombia won 2-1 in a 2026 World Cup qualifier in November, with Fernando Diniz then at the helm of the Brazilian team.

“The context is different. The match is similar in the number of players that will feature again and the importance we give to playing against the best teams in the world,” Lorenzo explained. “But the game style presented by the then-coach of Brazil and (Dorival Jr) is not the same.”

Colombia’s recent form and cohesive team performance will be tested against Brazil, who are looking to regain their dominant status in international football. As the two teams prepare for a high-stakes match, fans can expect an intense and competitive showdown at Levi’s Stadium.
