Uruguay vs Colombia Predictions
The most successful team of Copa America have not played their best football so far in the competition. Under the stable leadership of Oscar Tabarez, the side have lacked an attacking threat so far despite having the likes of Luis Suarez, Edinson Cavani in their ranks. However, they have defended extremely well and have let in just 2 goals so far in their 4 group matches. Their attack will however, come under the scanner against an extremely well drilled Colombia side, who can beat anyone on their day.
Colombia come into the quarter finals of Copa America, having finished in the 3rd place in Group B, behind Brazil, Peru and have just managed a single win in their campaign. A 1-0 victory in the first group match of Copa America is all they have managed aside from the draw against eliminated Venezuela. Since that victory they have just managed a single point over the next 3 games and just eked into the quarter finals.
Who will win Uruguay vs Colombia Match
Uruguay start favorites over their opponents Colombia for the quarter final encounter and are the only side who have not let in a goal in the second half of the match in this year’s Copa America. Their outstanding defensive cover is what holds them apart from their rivals and they also have the pace and agility in midfield with a number of young midfield options. However, an unlikely victory for the Colombians cannot be ruled out as the stakes get higher for both nations.
FINAL SCORELINE – Uruguay 2-0 Colombia
