Uruguay vs Colombia build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Following a tough start to their 2021 Copa America campaign, Uruguay finished runners-up in Group A behind Argentina, having won half of their four matches played. Óscar Tabárez’s men began with just one point secured across their opening two games (0-1 v Argentina and 1-1 v Chile) before collecting back-to-back wins over Bolivia (2-0) and Paraguay (1-0). La Celeste also ended up with the joint-best defensive record (two goals conceded) in the competition’s opening phase.
It was the opposite experience for Colombia, who started the competition with a narrow 1-0 win over Ecuador before picking up just one point across their next three games, though two of those results were narrow 2-1 losses against Peru and Brazil. Of the sides in the knockout phase Los Cafeteros finished with the joint-worst attack (three goals scored).
- Uruguay (vs Paraguay): Muslera; Nández, Godín, Giménez, Viña; Valverde, Vecino, Bentancur; De La Cruz, De Arrascaeta; Cavani.
- Colombia (vs Brazil): Ospina; Muñoz, Mina, Sánchez, Tesillo; Cuadrado, Uribe, Barrios, Díaz; Zapata, Borré.
Diego Godin should be available for Uruguay despite coming off at half-time in their 1-0 win over Paraguay. Luis Suarez is expected to return to Óscar Tabárez’s starting lineup after coming off the bench last time out. There’s no major concerns for Colombia with Reinaldo Rueda’s only major decision being who leads the line with Duvan Zapata, Luis Muriel, Rafael Borre and Miguel Borja all rotated.

Player to watch: Edinson Cavani (Uruguay)
Having started the competition goalless Edinson Cavani is now in the running for the 2021 Copa America Golden Boot after scoring in each of Uruguay’s previous two matches. The 34-year-old marksman has moved onto two goals, which is one behind leading scorers Lionel Messi and Gianluca Lapadula as well as doubling his historical Copa America output, having managed just two strikes across 14 matches previously.
Cavani, who lifted the 2011 edition, has never registered in three consecutive Copa America games which he will be hoping to achieve when locking horns with Colombia, whom he has never faced before.
