Uruguay lost to Costa Rica 3-1 in their first game, before bouncing back to defeat England (2-1) and Italy (1-0).
Injuries & Suspensions
Colombia remain without long term injury Radamel Falcao. Uruguay’s Luis Suarez has taken infamy to a whole new level and has been banned for four months for his biting incident, and team Captain Diego Lugano is under a cloud with a knee injury.
Prediction & Tip
Colombia have really shined in this tournament and went through the Group phase undefeated. Uruguay have shown promise, but with the suspension of striker Luis Suarez and Captain Diego Lugano possibly missing with an injury this might be as far as they progress in World Cup 2014. We’re expecting Colombia to take this one out with ease, and the 13/2 that Ladbrokes are offering for a Colombia win with a -1 handicap is where we will be putting our money.
Colombia defeat Uruguay 3-0
