Today’s winner will probably secure their qualification into the next round. Before start of World Cup 2014, everyone expected Colombia will qualify in the next round. They played very good in the South American qualifications and finished at the 2nd place, behind Argentina.

In the first match against Greece, Colombia showed that they have quality and took easy win 3-0.

Ivory Coast have some problems against Japan. They were losing at the half-time, but in the second half Gervinho and Bony scored for the final 2-1.

Both national teams will go for a win in this match and try to finish the job after 2 matches, but I’m sure they would be happy with one point.

“Both teams to score” looks like a good betting option.

Probable lineups:

Colombia (4-5-1): Ospina; Zapata, Yepes, Sanchez, Armero; Zuniga, Aguilar, Rodriguez, Cuadrado, Ibarbo; Gutierrez. Out: Bacca (muscle strain).

Ivory Coast (4-3-3): Barry; Boka, Aurier, Serey, Bamba; Zokora, Tioté, Y Touré; Gervinho, Kalou, Drogba. Out: Ya Konan (knee).

Referee: Howard Webb (England).
