Uruguay VS ColombiaUruguay VS Colombia LIVE Football Match Score July 4/7/2021
In such a close match-up betting on the match result can go sideways way too quickly. Both sides’ recent performances haven’t been up to par and we can’t say anyone has an advantage in this department. Overall, the home team’s line-up features the better footballers, but the main thing putting these two teams apart is their match history. Uruguay has the undeniable lead, winning 6 of their last 10 meetings, while the Colombian team has managed just 2 triumphs.
Excluding Uruguay’s most recent 5 games, which had an average of 1.2 goals scored, everything else screams Over 2.5 Goals. Head-to-head this is one of the highest-scoring South American match-ups, with no goalless game in their last 10 meetings, furthermore, there has been just a single game with only one goal. 70% of their head-to-head games have had 3 or more goals. Looking through Colombia’s match history, 80% of their games have been over 2.5 goals.
Uruguay had a difficult start to this year’s Copa America, losing 1-0 in a tough game against group favourites Argentina in their opening match, as Guido Rodriguez netted the only goal of the game inside 15 minutes.
They then played out a slightly underwhelming 1-1 draw with Chile, as Luis Suarez equalised on the hour mark to salvage a point for La Celeste after Eduardo Vargas had put their opponents ahead.
However, Oscar Tabarez’s men would bounce back with two wins to round off the group stage and finish second, firstly defeating Bolivia 2-0 as Edinson Cavani got on the scoresheet after a Jairo Quinteros own goal.
La Celeste then finished with a 1-0 over Paraguay in the final game, with Cavani scoring a penalty to help his nation leapfrog their opponents.
While they are yet to hit the peak of their powers in this tournament, Tabarez’s men have steadily improved throughout, and they will aim to continue that with a win in a tough quarter-final clash on Saturday.
