Colombia vs Uruguay
WC Qualification – South America
Date: Friday, 13 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:30 UK/ 21:30 CET
Venue: Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez.
Both these teams are amongst the best in Latin America, and may be in the world as well. And for sure either has some of the very best players too.
Last time around, the Sky Blues finished second in the CONMEBOL qualifiers, while their counterparts ended up in the fourth spot.
These two will be determined to make an appearance in the upcoming world cup, but will be wary of the threats posed by the other teams in the federation. Despite the tournament being 18 match-days long, the safe option would be to accrue as many points as they can this early itself.
Both teams have been in good form lately, and especially so their respective frontlines. On top of that, majority of previous h2h clashes have also had goals in plenty.
As such, expect a high-scoring thriller this Friday between these two.
Colombia vs Uruguay: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter between these two ended in a 2-2 draw.
- Nine of the former twelve clashes had three or more goals.
- Oscar Tabarez’s men scored two or more goals in eight of the preceding eleven match-ups.
- The Coffee Growers scored a total of eight goals from the past three clashes at home.
Colombia vs Uruguay: Prediction
Carlos Queiroz’s men were held to a 2-2 draw on the road the last match-day, by Chile. In the meantime, the Sky Blues lost 4-2 on the road the last game week, against Ecuador.
The Coffee Growers were unbeaten in 21 of their previous 23 overall games, and they have scored a total of five goals from their last two match-ups. At home, they are unbeaten in their previous ten appearances, and recorded a 3-0 win in their latest such endeavor.
On the other hand, their opposite number were invincible in 14 of their former 15 fixtures, and they remained so in eight of their last nine road trips.
They had also scored two or more goals in their last four matches, and have done the same in their preceding three games away from home.
Furthermore, nine of the past twelve overall h2h encounters had three or more goals, and the latest such meeting alone had four goals in total.
Taking into account these observations, it’s inferred that the upcoming match-up will have goals from both teams.
