Colombia vs Chile – Copa America :The only side to close out the group stage with only victories
Colombia is already considered one of the biggest contenders to win this edition of the Copa America.
The side managed by Carlos Queiroz already left a very good impression on the 3 matches of the group stage, with the highlight going to their 1st win, over Argentina, by 2-0, where they were tactically very superior and, naturally, more effective on the final third.
On the 2nd round, the Colombians felt a lot of difficulties against the defensive Qatar, but they’ve managed to score already on the final stretch of the encounter, that way winning by 1-0.
On the match that closes out the group stage, already with the qualification and the 1st place of the group B ensured, Colombia took that opportunity to rotate several pieces of their starting line-up, without compromising their performance, since they have won, once again by 1-0, against Paraguay.
Chile qualified in 2nd place of the group C, where they have finished with 6 points conquered, thanks to the two victories against Japan (4-0) and Ecuador (2-1).
On both matches, I wasn’t particularly impressed with the performance of the team led by Reinaldo Rueda, being extremely effective on the beatdown against Japan, taking advantage of their superior experience when compared to the young Japanese and they’ve also seen them missing several clear goalscoring chances. Against Ecuador, Chile got off to a good start, justifying the advantage,
but they couldn’t decide the match, despite the offensive lack of effectiveness from the Ecuadorians. On the last round, despite the 1-0 loss to Uruguay, they’ve shown a more interesting approach, having chances to even go 1-0 up, but they weren’t effective enough.
This should be a match in typical South American style. Both teams will respect each other mutually, I believe that throughout the entire match.
The fact that this is a tie where whoever loses in the 90 minutes goes home should mean that Queiroz opts to prioritize the defensive organization even more, and Chile should opt for the same approach, reinforcing the keys to close out the access to their goal.

Colombia vs Chile– Betting Tip and Prediction: :
Even because, if there are moments where this Colombia can be dangerous, it is on the offensive transition, with players like Cuadrado, Martínez or even James, not due to the explosiveness but due to the caliber of his medium and long passes.
I expect a low-scoring affair and a first half finishing without a lot of goalscoring chances, eventually 0-0.
