Update: Brazil survive against Colombia to advance

Brazil and Colombia face off with a spot in the semifinal on the line. Anything other than a win in the final isn't good enough for Brazil, but they'll face possibly their toughest challenge yet against Colombia. Here's how the two teams will line up.

Luiz Felipe Scolari has made two changes to his lineup, one tactical and one forced by a suspension. Dani Alves has been dropped to the bench, replaced by Maicon at right back. In the midfield, Luiz Gustavo is suspended for yellow card accumulation, which allows Paulinho to get a start alongside Fernandinho. The rest of the lineup remains the same, with struggling Fred given another chance up front.

Colombia head coach José Pékerman has made two changes to his lineup as well from the team that defeated Uruguay in the Round of 16. In the midfield, Fredy Guarín replaces Abel Aguilar, while up front Jackson Martinez drops to the bench, replaced by Victor Ibarbo.

Brazil starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Júlio César; Marcelo, David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Maicon; Paulinho, Fernandinho; Neymar, Oscar, Hulk; Fred

Colombia (4-4-2): David Ospina; Pablo Armero, Mario Yepes, Cristian Zapata, Camilo Zuñiga; James Rodriguez, Carlos Sanchez Moreno, Fredy Guarín, Juan Cuadrado; Teofilo Gutierrez, Víctor Ibarbo
