Copa America / Columbia vs Qatar – Both teams can be satisfied with the way how they started the Copa America. Columbia won one of the greatest favourites to win the title in the first round, Argentina, by solid 2-0. Qatar didn’t win but they managed to pull off a draw with Paraguay after trailing behind for two goals. The two teams have never met before in an official match.
Game Columbia vs. Qatar begins 19.06.2019 at 23:30 CET
Colombia played well friendlies after elimination from the World Cup in Russia, and it could be sensed that this team is ready for great achievements at the Copa America. The Columbians lost only one out of eight friendlies; to South Korea, but they won last two. They defeated Panama and Peru by identical 3-0, but in the first round of the Copa America they faced against a much stronger team, Argentina. They played smartly and were waiting for their chance, which came in last 20 minutes when players who came off the bench scored. Martinez came in early because of Muriel’s injury and he scored the first goal for Columbia, while Zapata scored the second goal five minutes after he came off the bench.
Probable lineups Columbia: Ospina – Arias, D. Sanchez, Y. Mina, Tesillo – Cuadrado, Barrios, Uribe – J. Rodriguez, Falcao, Martinez
Qatar is a guest at the Copa America but it seems they have firmly decided to not be mere passers-by. Qatar has demonstrated at the Asian Championships that is a good team that can face even the best national teams in the world, although they didn’t show that in friendly with Brazil played before the Copa America. They lost by 2-0, and they were trailing behind Paraguay also by 2-0 at the beginning of the competition but they managed to equalise and the match ended as 2-2 draw. They had an opportunity to win the match but they were certainly satisfied with the end result. We don’t expect changes in the team since they played well the previous match.
Probable lineups Qatar: Al-Sheeb – Hassan, Miguel, Al-Rawi, Hatem – Salman, Madibo, Khoukhi, Al-Haydos – Afif, Ali
Betting Pick: Columbia vs. Qatar
Columbia showed its strength in the first round when it won Argentina and with it they announced their candidacy for winning the title. Qatar demonstrated that can fight back, but now it will be much harder and we don’t believe that the guests from Asia can surprise once more.
Pick: Asian handicap -1 Columbia
