Colombia vs Qatar Match Preview
Qatar have denied Paraguay (2-2) the points with a second-half comeback despite seeing the rivals take a 2-0 lead and they now travel to Estadio Cicero Pompeu de Toledo in Sao Paulo hoping to do damage against heavy favourites Colombia as well.
Maroons have thus shown their character early in the competition and bounced back to a lengthy unbeaten streak seen ahead of their early-June friendly loss to Brazil (2-0), which should have Carlos Queiroz warning his men against complacency here. They’ve been very tough to beat and will surely be in a good mood now, which promises a strong challenge.
However, Colombia have a lot to look forward too and we’ve seen them bag a 2-0 win in an intense match against Argentina, where goals from Roger Martínez and Duvan Zapata proved enough for their sixth win in seven outings across competitions since October 2018.
Los Cafeteros have proven themselves rock-solid at the back as they beat Panama (3-0) and Peru (0-3) in two outings ahead of the tournament as well, which should have them just as confident and motivated to impress on the day. We thus feel they’ll have to much for Qatar to handle here, hoping for a one-sided contest midway through the week.
We’ll thus go for Colombia to secure the points and go for their win to Nil, which comes at 21/20 with Coral and looks the best approach to the fixture at this point. We’ve seen them regularly enjoy such clashes lately and this certainly adds to such a belief.
Still, we hope to see Qatar put on a tough challenge once again and we hope for a tough deadlock to break early on. With that in mind, we’re now also backing few goals and Under 2.5 Goals FT at 19/20 with Unibet – which has been rated overpriced by many in the know.
