Colombia vs England | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Colombia take on England for a place in the 2018 World Cup quarter finals on Tuesday evening, with Gareth Southgate’s side hoping to win just their knockout match in a major tournament since 2006. However, with their South American opponents having improved with every display in Russia, it promises to be an entertaining encounter in Moscow.
The final Round of 16 match at the 2018 World Cup see’s Colombia and England going head-to-head in the Russian capital, with both teams having a good chance of going deep into the competition as a result of the way in which the draw has panned out. England are the narrow favourites to reach the last eight, however there are still plenty of betting markets worth considering. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, it is well worth checking out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Colombia.
Colombia News & Form
Colombia defeated both Poland and Senegal in order to finish top of Group H, with the South American’s recovering well from an opening defeat to Japan. Despite Bayern Munich midfielder James Rodriguez facing a race against time to be fit for the clash against England, Colombia still have a number of skilful attacking options to select from, including former Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao, who has just one goal to his name in Russia.
England News & Form
England head into their clash with Colombia off the back of a narrow defeat against Group G rivals Belgium, however with manager Gareth Southgate having rested the majority of his starting players, the Three Lions will be confident of reaching the quarter finals. Captain Harry Kane has five goals to his name already in the competition, while defender John Stones is expected to be fit, despite picking up a minor injury against Belgium.
Colombia vs England Head to Head
The two nations have on five separate occasions over the years, with Colombia perhaps surprisingly still hunting for their first ever success over the Three Lions. England have come out on top on three occasions, as well as drawing twice. Michael Owen scored a hat-trick the last time the two teams met, helping England to run out 3-2 winners. However, with the duo having not met for over a decade, perhaps few conclusions can be made in this area.
