As we predicted, Colombia have been one of the best teams of the tournament as they won Group C cruising to victory in all three matches, scoring nine goals in the process despite the absence of Radamel Falcao. They joined the Netherlands as teams with perfect records in the group stage. The Cafeteros put up another stunning performance on their last group match against Japan winning the match by 4-1 with two goals from Porto’s striker Jackson Martínez.

888 Sport Betting BonusAfter his two goals against Japan,  Martínez might have conquered the manager’s trust and he finally might claim his place at the team’s starting line-up. James Rodriguez is playing like a super-star and has scored in each of his last five games for Colombia. Pekerman is expected to bring the likes of Mario Yepes, Cristian Zapata and Carlos Sanchez back into the starting XI while Adrian Ramos is likely to return to the bench despite impressing in the last match.

Uruguay are reeling following Luis Suarez’s suspension for biting Giorgio Chiellini in the 1-0 win over Italy in their final Group D game. They struggled badly without Suarez in the 3-1 defeat to Costa Rica in their World Cup opener. Then they recovered from that shock defeat to Costa Rica beating Italy and England. With their heads not in the right place, Uruguay are likely to be distracted by off-field antics

So, the team’s hopes will fall on the shoulders of Edinson Cavani. Diego Forlan is expected to come in up front alongside the PSG's striker while Maxi Pereira will serve the final game of his suspension. Lodeiro will play behind the attacking duo while Gonzalez, Arevalo Rios and Rodriguez will form the midfield.

Colombia have never reached the Quarter-Final of the World Cup and will see this as a wonderful chance to break that record. They have scored 18 goals in their last nine unbeaten games while they have conceded just six in the same period of time. Colombia are the favourites here, but they have lost three of the last four against the Uruguayans.
