World Cup qualifying in CONMEBOL continues on Thursday with first-place Brazil on the verge of qualifying as they welcome Colombia to Sao Paolo. The home side are 10-1-0 so far with 26 goals scored and just four conceded, and they could very well qualify for next year’s World Cup if the results go their way this month. Colombia, meanwhile, are in fourth with 16 points and far from in a comfortable position with six games to go.

The return of the international break will see more nations take steps toward qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, with Brazil only four points from guaranteeing their spot at the finals.
Tite and his side face a big task in their next game, as they face Colombia who are pushing hard for an automatic spot themselves, but the Selecao will remain favourites to emerge triumphant all the same.
It’s even more important to pick up the points on home soil, as next week’s game sees them travel to San Juan to face Argentina – a little over two months on from the farcical events which saw the reverse fixture halted minutes after kick-off as health authorities attempted to deport Premier League players.
Here’s are storylines, how you can watch the match and more:

Brazil: While there are some big names in attack, as usual, this squad from Tite also features some young players looking to continue to make a positive impression ahead of the World Cup. Leeds United star Raphinha is back in the squad, as is Ajax’ Antony, providing serious depth going forward. Against a Colombia defense that isn’t quite disciplined, the technical ability and speed of these attackers could cause serious trouble for Los Cafeteros. Expect Neymar to start but don’t be surprised if Raphinha also gets the nod after scoring twice against Uruguay in October.
Colombia: All eyes are going to be on 24-year-old attacker Luis Diaz, who is going to earn himself a big-money move to a massive club before long. The Porto man continues to be electric for both club and country and almost got his team into the Copa America final over the summer. His pace and shooting ability, especially from tight angles, means this Brazil defense must close down on him quickly. If Diaz can combine with those playing ahead of him, especially with short, quick passes into space, there is no reason why Colombia can fight for a point in the end.
Raphinha scores again, and Brazil qualify for the World Cup as a result with other games also going their way. Pick: Brazil 2, Colombia 1
Brazil remain the country with the most World Cup wins of all time, with five, but it will be over 20 years since they were successful by the time the Qatar tournament rolls around.
What is the state of play in qualifying?
Brazil are top with 10 wins from 11, six points clear of Argentina.

With the national teams in the CONMEBOL region continuing their path to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, the latest game in the World Cup qualifying features Brazil vs. Colombia, live on U.S. streaming and pay-per-view television.
The five-time world champions are currently 15 points clear of Uruguay in the inter-confederation play-off spot having won 10 and drawn one of their opening 11 games. Brazil need just one point to secure at least a play-off spot but if Uruguay fail to win their next game and Tite’s men beat Colombia, they will be guaranteed a place in Qatar (as Uruguay would only have five games left to play and more than 15 points to catch up). Colombia, meanwhile, are tied on points with Uruguay but ahead on goal difference and will be looking to make things more comfortable.
