Before the start of the final matchday in Group A, Uruguay were fourth which would have pitted them against Group B winners Brazil in the first knockout round, but a 1-0 win over Paraguay ensured a runners-up finish and a date with a Colombia side who have so far flattered to deceive, winning just the single game.

The evergreen and wily Oscar Tabarez has been at the Uruguay helm since 2006, winning the 2011 installation of Copa America in that time, and the veteran tactician will no doubt harbour aspirations of adding another medal to his mantlepiece as the nation’s ‘Golden Generation’ enters its twilight years.

Colombia meanwhile have failed to replicate the heights of their 2014 World Cup campaign, with Carlos Queiroz struggling to succeed Jose Pekerman with any distinction, while current coach Reinaldo Rueda hasn’t exactly covered himself in glory this summer, with Los Cafeteros struggling for consistency.

Without the likes of Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez, Colombia have, at times, resembled a spent force, but the squad is still bursting at the seams with talent and can challenge any nation on their day. With Uruguay themselves looking out of sorts in the formative stages of this tournament, anything can happen in Brazil.

Uruguay vs Colombia: Match Stats

Having fired three successive blanks at the start of June, including back-to-back 0-0s in their World Cup qualifying games and a 1-0 reversal to Argentina, Uruguay started to show signs of life on matchday three of Copa America with a 1-1 draw against Chile. Since then they’ve collected consecutive wins, with Edinson Cavani netting in both of the games. Luis Suarez is still waiting for his first goal after his equaliser against Chile went down as an Arturo Vidal own goal. Colombia meanwhile started the tournament with a bang, beating Ecuador 1-0, but have since suffered two defeats and a draw.

Uruguay vs Colombia: Corner Stats

Uruguay have averaged 4.25 corners per match so far at Copa America and they have actually netted from a deadball scenario, with that aforementioned Vidal own goal coming from a set-piece delivery, with Matias Vecino’s flick-on being inadvertently directed past Claudio Bravo by his hapless team-mate. Colombia have fared slightly worse when it comes to corners, averaging exactly 3 per game at the competition so far, but even more worryingly for Rueda, they have conceded twice from set-pieces in their previous two games. Peru’s winner came by virtue of a Yerry Mina own goal from a corner, while Casemiro scored a winning header from a corner in the Brazil’s 2-1 win last time out.

Uruguay vs Colombia: Cards Stats

As for the card count, Uruguay have collected three, with Tabarez’s men avoiding the referee’s notebook in the last two games. Colombia on the other hand have been racking them up. Los Cafeteros have already accumulated double digits for yellows (10), while Luis Diaz saw red in the dying embers against Venezuela.

Uruguay vs Colombia: Odds


Uruguay vs Colombia: Head to Head

13 Nov 2020 – Colombia 0-3 Uruguay – World Cup Qualifying

11 Oct 2016 – Colombia 2-2 Uruguay – World Cup Qualifying

14 Oct 2015 – Uruguay 3-0 Colombia – World Cup Qualifying

26 Jun 2014 – Colombia 2-0 Uruguay – World Cup 2014

11 Sep 2013 – Uruguay 2-0 Colombia – World Cup Qualifying

The most notable fixture in recent memory is that 2014 World Cup clash, with the South American nations meeting in the Round of 16 and James Rodriguez scoring that goal. He netted a brace on the day to secure progression with a 2-0 win, but his opener was a thing of beauty, cushioning the ball on his chest before swivelling and uncorking a dipping volley that cannoned off the crossbar and nestled in the net. One of the iconic World Cup goals.
