Barça star and Sevilla striker, Bacca, were sent off
Brazil came out defeated against Colombia for 0-1. Neymar and Alves played the whole match, but with two very different face and predisposition. Colombia took their best face and made an impossible life to Brazil, playing bad again, the same kind of game since the hard removal from the World Cup last year.
The former Granada defender Jeison Murillo, current player of Inter Milan, was one of the great protagonists of the match in the positive side, purely talking about football. The Colombian defender scored the first and only goal in the 35th minute after a free kick poorly defended by the Brazilians. Murillo achieved the goal with a shot with his left foot and with a bit of fortune.
The keys of the match were in Colombia's pressure and their intensity in the game. The Brazilians fell in the Colombian provocations. A very good defense to Neymar, left him out of the game and canceled him completely. Even with the match finishing off the star of Brazil started a brawl. Neymar for a header and Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca, for pushing him were sent off with a red card. We'll see the scope of the sanctions and whether they can return to play more games in this Copa América.
The Colombians were very marked by the defeat in the quarterfinals of the World Cup, managed to get revenge. Colombia with the 0-1 victory achieved a historic break by losing streak of 24 years without winning Brazil, after the victory on 13 July 1991 in Sausalito Stadium in Viña del Mar for 2-0, in a Copa America held precisely in Chile.
Neymar will be suspended 1 game and he will cannot not play the decisive match against Venezuela, the last of the group stage.
