We have our expert soccer predictions for EVERY Copa America and Euro 2024 game, but for now, let’s dive into our Colombia vs Uruguay pick for today.

Colombia vs Uruguay best bet: Tie (+180)

Colombia have been arguably the most in-form team in all of soccer over the last 18 months. They are unbeaten in their last 27 games and were ultra-impressive as they earned a 5-0 win over Panama in the Copa America quarterfinals. They finished ahead of Brazil in Group D and now take on Uruguay in what should be a blockbuster semifinal.

Colombia have kept their long unbeaten record throughout this tournament, tying 1-1 with Brazil to maintain it. They face a tough challenge against a Uruguay team that has looked superb under Marcelo Bielsa. Four of the last 5 meetings between these 2 have finished in stalemate and it looks a tough task trying to split them once more. Uruguay finished top of Group C before recording a penalty shootout win over Brazil in the quarterfinals. They have also beaten Argentina in recent months so cannot be underestimated despite Colombia’s impressive form. With both teams looking solid, this could be close throughout and betting on the game to be a tie after 90 minutes could have some value at +180 odds.
