Uruguay vs Colombia Match Preview And Prediction


Uruguay vs Colombia: Brazil, the joint tournament favorites, was Uruguay’s quarterfinal opponent, making it the hardest assignment of the competition. It was a match of rare opportunities, and despite predictions, it was not a Joga Bonito. The score at halftime remained the same, and Bielsa’s team would eventually prevail in a penalty shootout.

Uruguay has not made it to the Copa America semifinals in thirteen years. After Diego Forland’s heroics in the 2011 Buenos Aires title match, they exited three quarterfinals out of four attempts. Colombia thrilled their supporters with a convincing 5-0 victory after they were drawn to play Panama in the quarterfinals.

Uruguay vs Colombia: Betting Analysis

Based on a review of their previous head-to-head matches dating back to October 13, 2015, Uruguay has won two of them, Colombia has won none, and there have been four draws. Between them, they scored 14 goals in all over five matches, with La Celeste scoring ten and Los Cafeteros creating four.

This results in an average of 2.33 goals scored per game. The last league meeting between these teams took place on December 10, 2023, on match day three of the South America Cup, with Colombia defeating Uruguay 2-2.

Colombia had 49% of the possession in that game and two of their 14 total attempted shots on goal were on target.  James Rodríguez (35′) and Mateus Uribe (52′) scored the goals. Only two of Uruguay’s fifteen total shots on goal were on target. Darwin Núñez (91′) and Mathías Olivera (47′) both scored.

On paper, it is difficult to distinguish between the clubs, so we anticipate a hotly contested game at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. With eleven goals, Colombia leads the scoring race at the Copa this year; Uruguay is just behind them with nine goals. Therefore, since there is no doubting either front’s offensive prowess, we will go with both teams to score as our primary recommendation.

Uruguay vs Colombia Expected Lineups

Uruguay (4-2-3-1 Formation): Rochet: Varela, Olivera, Gimenez, Vina Valverde, Pellistri, Nunez, Araujo, and De la Cruz

Colombia (4-2-3-1 Formation): Vargas – Arias, Rodriguez, Diaz – Cordoba; Munoz, Sanchez, Cuesta, Mojica – Rios; Lerma – Rios.
