In the 1/8 finals on World Cup will meet two national teams from South America.
Colombia have 100% success from the group phase with 3 wins in 3 matches in which they have managed to score 9 goals. True, their group was one of the weakest on the whole World Cup (Greece, Ivory Coast and Japan). In the last group match against Japan, Colombia played with 2nd team and rest many important players for today’s match, so this could be a big advantage for them.
Ururguay went through the last 16 from one of the hardest group in which England and Italy failed to qualified in the 1/8 finals. Luis Suarez is suspended, so Edinson Cavani will replace him as a lone striker, while Diego Forlan could start along Cavani.
Captain Diego Lugano will be probably out for this match.
Colombia rested many players and have freshness which could be an advantage.
IMO, Colombia is in a much better position and better side in this moment and I believe they could qualify in the 1/4 finals.
