Uruguay will face Colombia in the last eight on Sunday, 4th July, with Alley Sport bringing Uruguay vs Colombia preview and buildup to this South American clash.
The Copa America quarterfinals match between Uruguay and Colombia should bring a lot of excitement. Once these two teams meet, we always see a spectacle. Interesting and thrilling performance, lots of intensity, high emotions, battle… All that and many more is present once Uruguay and Colombia meet. Luis Suarez and his boys want to win this competition, and even though they aren’t in the focus of the media, Uruguay is a dark horse that shouldn’t be written off. As for Colombia…well, we don’t know what to say about the Caffeteros, who have the potential to defeat anyone in the world but underachieve constantly.
Uruguay vs Colombia: Preview
Uruguay pumped up the tempo as Copa America went by, posting two wins in a row without an allowed goal, which eventually propelled them to the next round. After defeating Bolivia, 2-0, Uruguay defeated Paraguay in the last round of the group stage, 1-0.
Oscar Tabarez’s unit opened the campaign with a loss to Argentina, 1-0 in a match that could saw a draw in the end, and it wouldn’t be unfair. After that, Luis Suarez and the boys played 1-1 against Chile.
Even though they appeared without James Rodriguez, Colombia was one of the teams that promised a solid run at Copa America, but somewhere along the way, they simply disappeared. Los Cafeteros opened the campaign with a win against Ecuador, 1-0, and after that, played 0-0 with Venezuela in one extremely rough event.
Uruguay vs Colombia: Prediction
The one thing we didn’t mention in the previous paragraph is that only four of the past five direct matches between Colombia and Uruguay saw both teams not scoring. It is something that we strongly believe will happen on Saturday night again, because of Uruguay’s style of play and the importance of the game.
