    Match Preview

    Colombia take on Uruguay in what is set to be a nail-biting last-16 clash in Rio de Janeiro to decide who will reach the Quarter-Finals stage of the 2014 World Cup.

    Uruguay should enter as favourites on paper and their head-to record backs that up, Uruguay having won eight of their last 14 games against Colombia and lost just four. In four campaigns Colombia have only reached the last 16 once - losing to Cameroon in 1990 - while former two-time winners Uruguay finished fourth in 2010.

    Uruguay got off to a shaky start in the 2014 World Cup when they lost their first game against Costa Rica 3-1 despite Edinson Cavani's first-half penalty. The injured Luis Suarez soon put their campaign back on track with two goals to sink England 2-1, before Diego Godin's late winner against Italy sealed their place in the last 16.

    Uruguay will have to go up against Colombia without their star striker Suarez however, after he received an eight-match ban for his now infamous bite on Italy's Giorgio Chiellini in the 1-0 victory. Without Suarez against Costa Rica the side simply failed to show the same attacking presence, so Cavani could find himself going alone up front.

    Colombia's World Cup has been a sensational one to watch so far, with three comfortable wins in Group C putting them through. Even without their star striker Radamel Falcao, the Colombians have looked menacing throughout and shaken off the underdog tag they entered with.

    A commanding 3-0 win over Greece started them off on the right foot, before Colombia came out on top in a tighter contest against Ivory Coast which ended 2-1. Their final match was a 4-1 rout of Japan, which saw them safely through to the last 16 with maximum points.

    While you have to look at Cavani or Diego Forlan for Uruguay in terms of goalscorer bets, Colombia's team are littered with better options. James Rodriguez is currently top scorer for the Colombians with three, and he in particular has worked very hard in all three games.
