Colombia vs Uruguay – Prediction (World Cup – Qual. – 13.11.2020)

H2H: Colombia v Uruguay – Comparison.

Colombia’s James Rodríguez has reignited his career with a move to Everton, contributing to 37.5% of their league goals since joining (three goals, three assists). Edinson Cavani survives Uruguay’s selection scare and will no doubt be full of confidence after stabbing home his first Manchester United goal from the bench last time out. Just two of Uruguay manager Óscar Tabárez’s six prior meetings with Colombia saw both teams score, though three produced over 3.5 goals (W2, D1, L2).

Colombia Insights.

Colombia (FIFA Rank: #10) have been solid under experienced international coach Carlos Queiroz, going unbeaten in 13 of his 16 games in charge (W9, D4). Notably, each of Colombia’s victories under Queiroz came ‘to nil’, and subsequently, just two of their 11 clashes with CONMEBOL opposition saw both teams score (W6, D5 in 90 minutes). Whilst the hosts possess just a 20% win-rate vs top-ten CONMEBOL nations since the 2014 World Cup (W3, D5, L7), these games have still often been tight affairs with nine producing under 2.5 goals and just five seeing both teams score. However Colombia’s home record across the same matches stands at a disappointing D3, L1.

Uruguay Insights.

Uruguay (#7) are blighted by a long absentee list due to Covid-19 and injuries, with big names like Federico Valverde and Maxi Gómes missing out. That might help extend their leaky run of no clean sheets in seven of their last eight outings (W4, D3, L1), though despite the back-and-forth nature, Uruguay only won during this sequence when scoring first. Topically, Uruguay have a poor record in all games vs other top-ten ranked CONMEBOL nations since the 2014 World Cup (W1, D4, L6), with their away record across the same games – including neutral venues – standing at D3, L4. Three of those four away defeats came by a 1-0 scoreline, whilst all draws ended 2-2.
