Sports Ticket: Uruguay vs Colombia – Live Streaming Online | Copa America 2021 Live Matches | Ten Sports Live | URU vs COL Live Today Match Online
Uruguay vs Colombia Prediction:
Uruguay have conceded a total of just two goals from their last six games, and these two goals were from Argentina, and Chile – two of the best teams in Latin America.
Note that Tabarez’s men are also on a two-fixture winning run and have built quite some momentum.
They also have a great h2h record against this foe, and in fact had defeated them 3-0 just seven months back. On the other hand, Colombia have conceded two or more goals in their past two matchups, and they are also winless in their latest three games.
Note that they have also won against just three teams in the past two-year period; Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela – who could be counted amongst the weak teams in Latin America.
Likely, expect Uruguay to secure a win this weekend, against the struggling Colombians.
Uruguay vs Colombia Preview:
Uruguay managed to finish second in Group B with wins in their final two games. Their start to the campaign was on a sour note, as they were defeated by Argentina by a sole unanswered goal, which was followed by a draw against Chile.
Since then, they have grown in confidence – especially so their defense. However, one matter that might be bothering fans is the performance of their offense.
Despite having two of the world’s best strikers in Edinson Cavani, and Luis Suarez, the team has been struggling to find the back of the net. Gaffer Oscar Tabarez will have to figure out to unlock these two beasts soon.
Meanwhile, Colombia have been trying their best to get back to their 2014 form, when they made a deep run in the World Cup. but they have been unable to get into track so far.
They were lucky to have qualified for the knockouts, after losing their last two group-stage fixtures. They also have a poor h2h record against this rival, and especially so recently.
By the looks of things, expect Uruguay to progress to the semis of the Copa with a win this Saturday.

HEAD to HEAD:
- The latest encounter had ended in a 0-3 win for Uruguay.
- They were unbeaten in ten of their past twelve meetings, and had also recorded eight of the
past ten overall wins.
- They have scored two or more goals in every single match-up since 2015.
- The team had kept clean sheets in three of the preceding five clashes.
Uruguay might have struggled to consistently post wins lately, but it needs to be noted that they have seldom lost during the while. In fact, in the past three-year period, they have lost just against three teams.
Once each against Argentina, and Brazil, and the third loss had come against Ecuador, in Ecuador, in their high-altitude grounds. The third loss could not be really counted against them. The best teams in the world struggle to perform in such conditions.
Meanwhile, Colombia have rarely won in the past year. They have also been finding it hard to keep clean sheets, and in the current campaign, their only win had come against the weak Ecuador. The team had remained winless in their last three group stage matches.
