Uruguay vs. Colombia Prediction on July 10, 2024

Match info

Uruguay takes on Colombia in the men’s football 2024 Copa América semi-final on Wednesday, July 10, at 8 p.m. local time at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, as it continues its quest for a remarkable 16th competition title. Conversely, is it possible for “Los Cafeteros” (the “Coffee Growers”) to make it to the championship game and end their 23-year title wait after that? This is Bookmaker Expert’s prediction for Uruguay vs. Colombia. Interestingly, whatever betting site in Colombia you come across, or beyond, you’ll see that there’s no unanimous decision on the favorite and underdog in this match. Some give the upper hand to Uruguay, and some to Colombia.

Meeting statistics

The current form of Uruguay

Uruguay overcame a difficult matchup against Brazil to get to its first Copa América semifinal since winning the competition in 2011. In this tense match, 41 fouls were called, and Uruguay had to play with 10 men in the second half after Nahitan Nández was sent off for a rough tackle on Rodrygo after a VAR review. “La Celeste”—also known as the “Sky Blue” in English—went to penalties despite playing handicapped. Uruguay’s goalkeeper Sergio Rochet stopped Brazil’s (the nation in which he plays professionally for Internacional in Porto Alegre) first penalty taken by Militão. Later during the shootout, the kick from the spot by Douglas Luiz hit the post, marking a second blank from Brazil. Alisson Becker, the goalkeeper for Brazil, turned away José Giménez’s kick, but Manuel Ugarte scored the game-winning penalty kick to give Uruguay the victory.

A muscle injury Ronald Araújo suffered while playing against Brazil will keep the Barcelona defender out of action for several months. Nahitan Nández, who was given a straight red card during this match, is serving a ban. Due to this, Marcelo Bielsa’s team would be missing two of its key defensive players going into a semi-final matchup against Colombia, which has gone two years without losing. Argentina was the last team that defeated “Los Cafeteros” (0-1 on February 2, 2022, during a World Cup qualifier) before this run.

The current form of Colombia

Although Colombia doesn’t play particularly well on defense, it has the most attacking options and firepower in the competition. They’ve also left very little to chance in this competition, unlike Uruguay, who advanced to the semifinals by employing a slightly different strategy. For instance, against Brazil, they employed a hard press. With Jefferson Lerma, the midfielder for Crystal Palace, free to return fully after serving a one-match suspension against Panama in the last 8, when his team thrashed the Central American side 5-0, Colombia is expected to benefit greatly. Jhon Lucumí, a defender for Italy’s Bologna, is still out with an injury and won’t play for Néstor Lorenzo-commanded side at Bank of America Stadium.

Head-to-head

In their last 15 matches with Colombia, Uruguay has prevailed eight times.

Match analytics

Uruguay will attempt to control the game against Colombia by building from the midfield; when Colombia has the ball, it’s hard to be stopped. Uruguay has a really good squad, but we’re not sure it will be enough. There’s something about this Colombian team and the Colombian fans that has added enchantment to this tournament. Instead of depending just on penalty kicks, Colombia will attempt to win in open play.

Prediction: Colombia will win, but both teams will score at least one. At Highbet, this wager is specified as 1x2 & both teams to score – Colombia/Yes and is valued at 121/20.
