Uruguay vs Colombia Predictions

Colombia and Uruguay are evenly matched and hard to beat. This should be a cagey match with a draw and extra time on the cards at Copa America.

  • Uruguay are undefeated in 5 of their last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • Uruguay have drawn 3 of their last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • Uruguay have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Colombia are undefeated in 7 of their last 9 matches (Copa America).
  • Colombia have seen under 2.5 goals in 19 of their last 23 matches (Copa America).

Head to Head

Uruguay have a 16-10 advantage against Colombia with 7 draws in 33 matches.

Uruguay Form

Uruguay had failed to win in three matches prior to Copa America and carried that form into the tournament. 

La Celeste lost 1-0 against Argentina in their opening match before a 1-1 draw against Chile, equalising through an own goal.

Óscar Tabárez’s side won 2-0 against Bolivia, going ahead through an own goal with Edinson Cavani scoring the second in a match they dominated.

Uruguay’s last match was a 1-0 win against Paraguay. Cavani’s penalty was the difference in a match where they had 18-4 shots.

Goalkeepers: Fernando Muslera, Martín Campaña, Sergio Rochet
Defenders: José Giménez, Diego Godín (captain), Ronald Araújo, Camilo Cándido, Giovanni González, Matías Viña, Sebastián Coates, Martín Cáceres

Rueda guided La Tricolor to a 3-0 win in Peru and 2-2 draw against Argentina in the World Cup qualifiers.
