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

The second semifinal of the Copa America sees two sides that have thoroughly impressed over the course of the tournament go head-to-head as Marcelo Bielsa’s Uruguay take on Colombia.

La Celeste picked up maximum points in the group stages and conceded just one goal along the way, before taking one of the pre-tournament favourites Brazil all the way to penalties in the quarterfinals - a shootout they won thanks to misses from Eder Militao and Douglas Luiz.

Colombia also enjoyed a strong showing in Group D as it finished above Brazil with seven points to the Selecao's five points, before a ruthless attacking display saw La Tricolor put five past Panama last time out in a 5-0 thrashing.

Uruguay vs. Colombia betting picks and predictions 

Uruguay to win and Both Teams to Score (+600)

Both Uruguay and Colombia have shown their supreme quality over the course of this year’s Copa America but 15-time winners Uruguay can get the last laugh in what promises to be an enthralling encounter at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

La Celeste have lost just two of their last 19 matches in all competitions and their only defeat to Colombia across their last six head-to-heads came in a penalty shootout in the 2021 edition of this tournament.

La Tricolor have also been in strong form with Nestor Lorenzo’s men currently on a 28-game unbeaten streak in all competitions. But, their Copa America record leaves a lot to be desired with just one title and one second-place finish to their name, although they have finished third five times.

The experience of Uruguay could be key in securing a spot in the final and Marcelo Bielsa’s men look primed to seal a victory. However, the form of Colombia should see them cause plenty of issues for La Celeste and they should be more than capable of grabbing a goal themselves.

Federico Valverde Over 0.5 shots on target (+125)

Uruguay has been one of the most dangerous attacking teams in the competition. Its high press causes plenty of issues for opposition defenses and that creates shooting opportunities, with La Celeste taking an astonishing 62 shots so far - averaging over 15 efforts per game.

Three of the players that currently rank in the top 10 of the Copa America for shots taken are from Uruguay, including Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez - who is one behind leader Salomon Rondon of Venezuela with 16 - and Maximiliano Araujo of Toluca (nine).

However, Real Madrid star Federico Valverde could be the man to look out for in the shots market, having already tried his luck on 12 previous occasions, including four on target with one goal.

With an average of one shot on goal per match at the Copa America, he looks a solid bet to test the Colombian goalkeeper in this encounter. 

Jhon Cordoba to score anytime (+300)

While Uruguay’s attacking depth has been rightfully praised, Colombia also has plenty of quality in the final third and there are a number of potential goalscorers that could keep it in this semifinal tie.

Liverpool winger Luis Diaz, former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich star James Rodriguez and Palmeiras ace Richard Rios have all found the back of the net for Los Cafeteros in the United States, while defender Daniel Munoz has also popped up with two goals from the back.

Striker Jhon Cordoba also has two goals to his name at the Copa America and may be the most worthwhile option in the goalscorer market for Colombia.

No Colombia player has taken more shots than Cordoba with six and he also possesses the joint best shots on target percentage (50 percent) of any Colombian forward to have played more than 90 minutes this tournament.
