MetLife Stadium in New Jersey will have the honour to host an all South-American high profile friendly between Colombia and Argentina on Tuesday evening.

Both teams featured the World Cup in Russia this summer, ending their respective campaigns in the last 16 round.

Los Cafeteros fell to England on penalties after clawing their way back into the contest thanks to a stoppage-time equalizer from Jerry Mina.

La Albiceleste, on the other side, could not hold the like of Kylian Mbappe in their tie with France as the latter world champions survived the Argentine test winning 4-2 after the second-half comeback.

Colombia vs Argentina: Head-to-head

  • Argentine were the dominant force in the history of head to head games against Los Cafeteros.
  • La Albiceleste won 11, drew 4 and lost just 2 of last 17 encounters with Colombia.
  • Argentina won four and drew one of last five outings against Los Cafeteros who are winless in last seven meetings with Los Gauchos.
  • Colombia scored just one goal in past seven games against Argentina.

Colombia vs Argentina: Prediction

This friendly should give Colombians a nice chance to break the negative trend in the most recent H2H history against Argentina.

The new boss Arturo Reyes will almost have the full squad available here, including Quadrado, Quintero, Falcao, Bacca and Muriel.

The only significant absence is the one of Bayern Munich’s James Rodriguez. Colombians went past South American rivals Venezuela 2-1 in weekend’s friendly at Hard Rock Stadium with goals from Falcao and Chara.

Argentina are also off to a brand new start under Lionel Scaloni. He called up the likes of Paulo Dybala and Mauro Icardi for this pair of friendlies (they’ve already defeated Guatemala 3-0 days ago), but is without the main star Lionel Messi.

Fiorentina’s Giovanni Simeone led the line against the Central American opposition and he bagged one of team’s three goals in a demolishing victory.

Colombians are almost with their strongest line-up possible here and we don’t see them underdogs against this Argentine team.

You can back Los Cafeteros not to lose at the odds of 1.61. Braver punters can shot for Colombia to win at 3.20.

Colombia vs Argentina: Bet Tips

  • Colombia or Draw Double Chance @ 1.61 (3/5)
  • Colombia to win @ 3.20 (11/5).
