Betting Preview: Latest Results and Roster Updates

Colombia National Football Team

Colombia have been incredibly good in this tournament, and that’s why they are the second favorites to win it all on the 2024 Copa betting odds. Los Cafeteros topped Group D over Brazil, Costa Rica, and Paraguay, which was a surprise considering the Selecao were big favorites to win the group. They had an easy draw in the quarterfinals against Panama, and they had a big 5-0 win with five different players scoring.

Luis Diaz and Jhon Cordoba have both scored two goals each in this tournament, while James Rodriguez has been outstanding, creating five assists in four matches so far. Jhon Lucumi came out with an injury in the first half of Colombia’s last game, and he is questionable for the semi-finals.

Uruguay National Football Team

Uruguay are coming off a big win over Brazil in the quarterfinals on penalties, which was the third penalty shootout in that stage of the Copa. La Celeste are still unbeaten in this tournament after winning Group C with the full nine points. They have been a very solid team offensively and defensively under Marcelo Bielsa, beating teams like Argentina, Mexico, South Korea, and Brazil twice in the span of 12 months.

Maximiliano Araujo is the team’s top scorer in the tournament with three goals, while Darwin Nunez isn’t too far behind with two goals. Federico Valverde and Nicolas de la Cruz are two key players for Uruguay in midfield. Their defense might be a little weaker in this game, as Ronald Araujo is injured and Nahitan Nandez is suspended.

If we have to go with a side in this game, it will be Uruguay to qualify for the 2024 Copa final. La Celeste have won three consecutive games without conceding a single goal, as they have been very solid in the back, but they have also scored nine goals in four matches and are effective in front of the net. This matchup has the potential to go to penalties, and Uruguay have already won one of those, so they would have a slight advantage in it if that happens.

The soccer sportsbooks in the USA have some enticing odds on Uruguay qualifying from this semi-final matchup. La Celeste will be going for revenge after Colombia knocked them out of the last edition, and it’s unlikely that the same scenario will happen again.

Total Cards – Under 4.5 @ 1.75 (3/4)

Uruguay have gone under this total of cards in all four of their Copa matches so far, averaging only 2.25 cards per game. Colombia had some quiet matches as well, going under the total in three of their four games. Their last three encounters went under the total as well, so there’s a lot of value on the under in this matchup.

This is a matchup between the first and second-best offenses in the tournament so far, as Colombia have scored 11 goals and Uruguay have nine goals. They have had a lot of open games historically, as 14 of their last 17 head-to-head games had at least two goals. Both teams are great offensively, and they have scored an early goal in most of their matches in the 2024 Copa, so if that happens, it will most definitely go over the total or at least a push.
