Colombia vs. Panama: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Colombia head to Arizona to face Panama in the quarterfinals of the 2024 Copa America with a 26-game unbeaten run behind them and a great chance to advance to the semifinals.

Nestor Lorenzo's Colombia side topped their group ahead of Brazil and the reward is a last-eight showdown with Panama.

With Panama ranked 43rd in the latest FIFA standings, Colombia are strong favorites to advance.

Colombia vs. Panama betting picks and predictions

Colombia to win and both teams to score (+250)

Colombia came into this competition unbeaten since February 2022 and they took seven points from their three group games, registering two wins, to stretch their unbeaten sequence out to 26 games.

They have rarely looked like losing in recent times and their progress through Group D was fairly serene.

They led Paraguay 2-0 at half-time in their opener, going on to win 2-1. Costa Rica were dispatched 3-0 in this Glendale venue in the second game and a 1-1 draw with Brazil in California was enough to secure top billing.

Though they went behind in that game, Los Cafeteros looked the more likely winners in the second half and might have done so had striker Rafael Santos Borre converted a decent chance late on.

Prior to the draw against Brazil, Colombia had won 10 games on the trot, with four of their seven most recent successes coming in games where both teams found the net.

Panama have shown enough in three Copa America games so far to believe they can breach the Colombian rearguard. They scored six times in those three group matches and are yet to fire a blank.

James Rodriguez Over 0.5 Assists (+250)

He may be heading for his 33rd birthday in a few days but James Rodriguez remains a lynchpin and talisman for Colombia.

The former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich ace has more than 100 caps under his belt and retains plenty of guile and craft to unlock any defense.

He hasn't scored in this tournament yet, but Rodriguez has acted as provider in chief.

He set up both Daniel Munoz and Jefferson Lerma for their goals in the win over Paraguay and an inch-perfect pass found Jhon Cordoba as he slotted home in the Costa Rica victory.

Rodriguez should see plenty of the ball against a Panama side likely to be camped in their own half for large spells of the game.

He looks a good value pick to once again lay on a goal for a teammate in Arizona.

Early Goal - goal before 28:00 (-120)

Colombia have been scoring lots of first-half goals. Four of the six they netted in the group stage came before half-time.

In consecutive pre-tournament friendly wins over Romania, the USA and Bolivia they found the net before six minutes had elapsed and with those early gains since, Colombia have now scored at least once before the break in six straight matches.

Panama's trio of group stage games all featured goals by the midpoint of the opening half.

Colombia are likely to dominate the ball in this last-eight encounter and they have the attacking power to break the deadlock before the clock moves to 28:00.
