Brazil v Colombia live stream, Friday 12 November, 12.30am GMT
Brazil will be looking to maintain their unbeaten record in World Cup qualifying when they host Colombia in the early hours of Friday morning (UK time).
The five-time world champions will almost certainly be present in Qatar to seek a sixth crown next year. Brazil have won 10 and drawn one of their 11 qualifiers to date and have a six-point lead over Argentina in second place. Four teams qualify automatically in South America and Brazil are 15 points clear of Uruguay in fifth, so it would take a collapse of extraordinary proportions for the Selecao to miss their first ever World Cup.
The major talking point going into the November international break was Tite’s decision to leave Vinicius Junior out of the squad. The forward has been in fantastic form for Real Madrid at the start of the season, but that was not enough to earn him a place in Brazil’s initial 23-man group, although he has since been drafted in to replace the injured Roberto Firmino.
Barcelona attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho has earned a recall, and Leeds winger Raphinha is expected to be heavily involved after his excellent displays last month. Douglas Luiz, Everton Ribeiro, Edenilson, Gabriel Barbosa, Arthur Cabral, Weverton and Guilherme Arana all featured in October but have missed out this time, some due to injury.
Colombia are fourth in the standings, ahead of Uruguay on goal difference alone. They drew 0-0 in each of their games in October, shutting out but failing to find a way past Uruguay, Brazil and Ecuador. Reinaldo Rueda must find a way to get his team scoring again ahead of a crucial double-header against Brazil and Paraguay.
James Rodriguez, who joined Qatari side Al-Rayyan in September, has been named in the Colombia squad for the first time in a year. Davinson Sanchez, Juan Cuadrado and Duvan Zapata will also be involved at the Neo Quimica Arena in Sao Paulo.
Kick-off is at 12.30am GMT on Friday, 12 November, and UK viewers can watch it on Premier Sports 1. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch World Cup qualifiers from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
