Colombia enjoyed a solid qualification campaign for Brazil 2014 and will be acclimatised to conditions, but will find Ivory Coast to be dogged opponents. The draw looks the safest bet in the Match Odds market with little to choose between the sides, while a bet of Over 2.5 Goals could be on the money with plenty of attacking talent in both teams and Correct Score punters are encouraged to back 2-2 for a big return in this match.
A fit again Rademel Falcao can't be ignored in the First Goalscorer market, with Jackson Martinez ready to take his chance should the first-choice forward not make the starting XI. For Ivory Coast, Didier Drogba will be the main attacking outlet and can easily be considered as a First Goalscorer selection, while Yaya Toure makes appeal in the Anytime Goalscorer market.
