Colombia vs Jamaica odds
*Odds correct as of 07:15 on August 8
In a tournament of upsets Colombia and Jamaica are one game away from reaching the quarter-finals. The 2023 Women’s World Cup is Colombia’s third appearance at the tournament, only previously reaching this stage once when they were beaten by eventual champions United States in 2015. An opening round 2-0 win over South Korea was followed by a historic 2-1 victory against two-time champions Germany, they were unable to make it a perfect record as Morocco inflicted defeat on them in the final round of group stage fixtures, however, with Germany failing to beat South Korea the South American side booked their passage into the round of 16 as Group H winners.
Jamaica’s struggles getting here are well-documented. None of that mattered despite being drawn into the same group as powerhouses France and Brazil, though when it was all said and done, neither of those nations was able to defeat The Reggae Girlz. A win over Panama sandwiched between those goalless draws with the latter result seeing them eliminate Brazil from the competition. Yet to concede they’ve only scored once at the 2023 Women’s World Cup.

Colombia vs Jamaica match tip
Linda Caicedo made history when she became the first player in history to compete at three Women’s World Cups (at the U-17, U-20, and senior levels) within a year. Her opening match goal against South Korea saw her become the second youngest South American, at 18 years and 153 days, to score in a Women’s World Cup, behind Brazilian legend Marta. Caicedo then netted against Germany winning her second Player of the Match trophy.
Colombia vs Jamaica Bet-Builder tip
She’s yet to light up this Women’s World Cup, but not for want for trying. Bunny Shaw remains Jamaica’s biggest goalscoring threat and with reason. The forward comes into this game having scored 14 goals in her last 14 international appearances. With the way both teams are going, chances are Shaw will strike in the second half as between them Colombia and Jamaica have scored five goals at the WWC with three of those strikes coming in the last 45 minutes.
