Colombia meets Qatar in round 2 of Copa America. The match will be played on Thursday, June 20th at Estádio do Morumbi (Sao Paulo)
In the first round of the championship, Colombia managed to beat one of the favorites of the tournament, Argentina, led by Di Maria, Aguero and Messi. The Colombians didn’t allow them to reveal their full potential and played the whole match greatly in terms of tactics. On the one hand, it seems that the Argentines possessed the ball more often and delivered more shots on goals, but the result was on the scoreboard - 2-0.

The champion of Asia managed to maintain a draw in a match against Paraguay in the 1st game of the tournament. But I would not overestimate the merits of Qatar. The fact is that Paraguay has not been like itself for a year and a half. The team missed the last World Cup in Russia and gained only one victory in its 9 last matches, and even that one was over Guatemala. Thus, the Paraguayans lost to Peru and Venezuela and played only a draw with South Africa and Honduras.
Now Qatar is waiting for a much more serious test. The victory in the upcoming match will allow the Colombians to promote to the playoffs. And they will surely take advantage of this situation so that the last match will become a formality for them, and it will be possible to field the reservists and give a respite to the leaders at the same time. By the way, they are far from young men. Cuadrado is 31, Falcao is 33, and a respite won’t hurt at all. The Colombians are much more experienced, more technical, and more intelligent in terms of tactics than their upcoming rival is. All these qualities will surely manifest themselves on the pitch and will bring victory to South Americans, and most likely with a difference of more than 1 goal. They managed to beat Argentina with such an outcome, and with all respect to Qatar, its obvious progress can’t be compared with the strength of the Colombians.
Prediction for the match: Colombia to win with -1.0 handicap
