The match

Uruguay and Colombia have the chance to end their lengthy absences from the Copa America final. The two will face off in the second semi-final, a match scheduled for early Thursday. Here we look at the stats ahead of the game and offer a prediction.

Uruguay are coming off a key win, over Brazil in the quarters, albeit on post-match penalties after a 0-0 draw. That was their eight-game undefeated in competitive action, but it ended a seven-game winning run. Uruguay had to do it the hard way after Nahitan Nandez’s sending off on the 74th minute. They maintained a solid defensive run, having conceded just once in their last six matches, a run in which they are undefeated as well. Notably, Uruguay haven't lost to Colombia in their last six meetings. The last time they met in the Copa America was in 2021, a game that went all the way to penalties after a 0-0 draw. Colombia would carry the day.

Like Uruguay, Colombia come into this game undefeated at the 2024 Copa America. They are actually one of the teams with the best run of form globally at the moment. Their 5-0 win over Colombia in the quarters was a statement of intent having last graced the Copa final in 2001. That win was an extension of their unbeaten run stretching back to over two years. In that period, Colombia have played 27 matches, failing to win only six. Like Uruguay, the only time they failed to win at this competition was in a draw with Brazil. That was in their last group game, which came after they’d already been confirmed group winners. Colombia will feel this is the right time for them to upstage their unimpressive run against Uruguay.

Key Statistics

  • Uruguay are unbeaten in their last six games.
  • Colombia are unbeaten in their last 27 matches.
  • Uruguay have only lost once in their last 12 matches.
  • Four of the last five meetings between these nations ended in draws.
  • Both these nations have drawn once and won three of their four Copa America games.

The bet of our experts

This match has been touted to be the toughest of the two semi-finals. Neither of these teams will be easy to beat, their runs ahead of the game notwithstanding. Their unbeaten runs coming here is a case in point.

The two nations have played to draws in most of their recent meetings and we can expect a share of the spoils here too. Our prediction for Uruguay v Colombia is for the game to end in a draw at 90 minutes.
