Brazil go into their World Cup qualifying game against Colombia in the Maracanã on Wednesday night knowing that they have not lost to their northern neighbours since 1991.

That 2-0 defeat came in the Copa América in Chile and since then Brazil have won 7 and drawn 3 against the Colombians.

The last meeting finished 0-0 in Bogota in October 2007.

In the absence of the suspended Adriano, Brazil are expected to start with: Júlio César, Maicon, Lúcio, Juan, Kléber, Josué, Gilberto Silva, Elano, Kaká, Robinho, Jô (Alexandre Pato).

Kick off: 22:10 (Brasilia) – October 14th 2008
