Our Prediction:

Colombia will win

Colombia – Chile Match Prediction | 12-10-2019 12:00

Hes so much on fire, in fact, that hes been displacing Radamel Falcao, a mainstay for years, in the team. Look for him to get another shot here, and that doesnt bode well for other teams. The form of James Rodriguez in this tournament has really been something else, and it just goes to show that he is truly one of the top players when hes in a yellow jersey. The pass he made with the outside of his boot alone would be worthy of paying admission to see him play, and hell be a tough player to stop here for the opposition. Going forward, there are few strikers in the world that are as hot as Duvan Zapata right now.

Colombia finished the group stage 3-0-0, beating Argentina, Qatar and Paraguay and not conceding a goal in the process. Chile, meanwhile, started the cup with two wins but fell to Uruguay in its last group stage game to finish second in the group. The third semifinal spot at the 2019 Copa America is on the line on Friday night as Group B winner Colombia takes on Group C runner-up Chile.

Swindon have drawn two of their last five matches and Macclesfield have drawn two of their last three, and while these two sides have never played out a stalemate before we believe Saturdays game will also end all square. Both teams head into the game in good form with Swindon having only lost two of their last six matches and Macclesfield suffering just one defeat in their last six matches.

Colombia Predicted Starting Line up

On the other hand, Luis Muriel is injured. Therefore, he wont be able to help his teammates in this important match. However, he should start the quarterfinal match on goal. David Ospina missed the last round of the group phase, to be with a family member who is ill. Zapata is the best goal scorer for the home side with two goals in the tournament so far.

The nominal hosts qualified for the quarterfinals after a flawless group phase. As a result, they finished second on the table. Moreover, they kept a clean sheet in all three games! Since the Reinaldo Ruedas squad is the reigning South American champion, the Mighty Tips experts suggest backing them to win the upcoming game. The visiting side lost the match after a series of four games without a defeat in all competitions. They defeated Argentina, Qatar and Paraguay. The provisional visitors were defeated in their third match against Uruguay. Furthermore, the home side was defeated only once in their last eleven matches in all competitions. In the first two rounds, they easily defeated Japan 4:0 and Ecuador 2:1.

Defending champions Chile has set up a tough showdown in the Quarters against surprise favorites for the title, Colombia. But here we stand, with them not having conceded a single goal yet. Coming into the competition, the latter was expected to finish second in their group at best and make a commendable run into the tournament, but nothing too serious.

Swindon Town have scored eight goals in their last three matches, while Macclesfield have netted five times in their last three outings, adding more weight to our prediction of over 2.5 goals being scored on Saturday. Another reason we are expecting goals this weekend is down to both clubs recent defensive records, as Swindon havent kept any clean sheets in their last six attempts and Macclesfield have only kept one clean sheet during that same period but both teams have been scoring goals.

As always, all eyes will be on Alexis Sanchez when the two teams meet in Sao Paulo and we predict that El Nino Maravilloso is going to help the Chileans hold Colombia to a draw in 90 minutes. La Roja, on the other hand, made it to the knockout stages despite suffering a loss to Uruguay in their last group game.

Both teams head into the game in good form with Swindon having only lost two of their last six matches and Macclesfield suffering just one defeat in their last six matches. Swindon have drawn two of their last five matches and Macclesfield have drawn two of their last three, and while these two sides have never played out a stalemate before we believe Saturdays game will also end all square.

Four of those matches ended in a draw. On the other side, the visiting side had four victories. In their last ten meetings, the provisional hosts in this match recorded only two wins. In six out of those ten matches we saw both teams scoring at least one goal, so thats another betting tip we have for this match.

Zapata led the line in muscular style during the Copa America, scoring the only goal of the game against Qatar following a season with Atalanta in Serie A in which the imposing striker scored in eight successive matches at one point, briefly putting him level with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the scoring charts in Italy.

Swindon vs Macclesfield Stats

The most capped player of the Chile national team is Barcelona goalkeeper who has past his 100-match mark with the squad he has been a part of since 2004. Chile triumphed in a dramatic final on penalty kicks to reach their first tournament championship. Prior to their 2015 title Chile had been runners-up in the competition on four different occasions. In a symbolic turn of events, Chile start their 2016 Copa America Centenario with a rematch against Argentina.
