Colombia Prediction- Can Colombia record back-to-back wins?

Colombia started their Copa America campaign in triumphant fashion by beating the Group B favourites, Argentina, 2-0 in their opening match of the group phase.

They now sit top of the four-nation group that also includes the likes of tonight’s opponents, Qatar, Paraguay and of course, Argentina.

A 2-point cushion ahead of Paraguay and Qatar, who drew 2-2 in their opening match, has given Colombia a bit of breathing space at the top of the group.

However, Colombia know they must grab all the points they can and build upon their impressive win over Argentina, and another win in this clash would virtually guarantee a spot in the quarter-finals.

Recent form has also been impressive for the Colombians who have recorded 6 wins out of their last 7 matches overall, with their one blemish being a 2-1 loss away at South Korea.

Notable wins against USA, Japan, Peru and Argentina should give Colombia enough confidence to go out and get another positive result in this encounter.

Qatar Prediction – Can Qatar build on encouraging start?

Onto Qatar, and along with Japan they’re one of two invitees to this year’s Copa America and they started their campaign in promising fashion.

They held Paraguay to a 2-2 draw in their opening match in Group B which got them off the mark and they’ll be keen to further add to their points tally in this clash.

Qatar will be keen to grab all three points here as they look to make hay while the sun shines (and prior to meeting Argentina in their third and final group match too!)

They’ve also produced successful displays and performances in the recent AFC Asian Cup which they won thanks to a 3-1 win over Japan in the final.

Qatar swept all before them in the Asian Cup as they won 7 straight matches on the trot, but since then they’ve been brought back down to earth.

A 2-0 defeat to Brazil was followed by the aforementioned 2-2 draw with Paraguay, and they’ll now be facing the conquerors of Argentina on Wednesday night.


Key-Facts – Colombia v Qatar

  • Colombia have won 6 of their last 7 matches overall in all competitions
  • Colombia have scored 17 goals from these last 7 matches
  • This will be the first ever meeting between Colombia and Qatar


Betting Tips Verdict

Having registered a 2-0 win over Argentina, Colombia will be in confident mood and should cover the asian handicap line against Qatar.
