  • Group C winners Colombia take on Group D runners up Uruguay in the second round of the World Cup at the Maracana, Rio de Janeiro on Saturday.

    Colombia have been mightily impressive and should be able to justify their position as favourites to win this match where Coral are going best odds 11/10 Colombia to win in 90 minutes play.

    Jose Pekerman had the luxury of resting the likes of Mario Yepes, Cristian Zapata, Carlos Sanchez and Teofilo Gutierrez for the final group game against Japan and they could be recalled to join James Rodriguez who came off the bench to score in the second half of the 4-1 romp. Colombia arrived in Brazil on the back of hype suggesting they have a Golden Generation to match the exploits of the 1990 World Cup side. Even without star man Radamel Falcao, Colombia have been able to breeze through the group stage with a 100% record and are short odds to reach the last eight for the first time in history.

    Rodriguez is the main threat to Uruguay, the talented 22-year-old plays his club football in France with Monaco and has taken to the World stage like a natural. The youngster has scored in each of Colombia’s group games and has an outside chance of winning the Golden Boot as he trails Neymar, Messi and Muller by one goal. He’s the not the only dangerman in a Colombian side which oozes flare, Jackson Martinez has two goals to his name and is more than  capable of adding to his tally. No-one will be looking forward to this game more than Gutierrez, he has a chequered history against Uruguay, receiving a red card in a World Cup qualifying match in 2009 and scoring twice when Colombia beat Uruguay 4-0 on the road to Brazil 2014.

    Back James Rodriguez to score any time at 14/5 on 888sport.

    Uruguay will look to Edinson Cavani to drag to his side through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup with Luis Suarez suspended. The imposing striker works hard all round the pitch but will have to focus at the sharp end if Uruguay are to replace the valuable goals supplied by his banished team mate.

    Diego Forlan is expected to come in to partner Cavani in attack. The former Manchester United player is getting on in years but was Uruguay’s inspiration in the 2010 World Cup and he’ll be hoping to make a similar impact if he gets another opportunity in Brazil. Uruguay will miss the experience of the Max Pereiro in defence and appear to have it all to do to progress at the expense of the Colombians.
