Prediction & Tip

Brazil have had the weight of their part of the world on their shoulders during this tournament, and so it continues here. They’ve managed to make it to the Quarter Finals and accounted for the very impressive Chile in their last game, albeit leaving it to the last moment and penalties. Colombia have had a fantastic tournament, and Number 10 James Rodriguez has been the breakout star of World Cup 2014, and they now face their toughest challenge so far. Will the Brazil fairytale, or is it soap opera, continue? We think so, and in doing so will continue to make this one of the best World Cups in recent times. Ladbrokes are offering 31/10 for both teams to score and Brazil to win, which we will be taking.
