Colombia v England- World Cup 2018

Colombia vs England World Cup Prediction 3rd July 2018 – 7.00 p.m

This should be a pretty evenly matched contest because you have the organisational strengths of Colombia, who are the ones more likely to keep things tight, going up against a bit of a gung-ho England. This should be a really absorbing contest and with the draw really opening up for the winner there is so much at stake in this one. For our Colombia v England predictions, the Three Lions are actually looking like a strong option to roll with.

Colombia vs England Odds*

England 11/10

Who will win Colombia vs England?

Who will win this Colombia v England clash? It should be a really good game and England are going to need to get off to a strong start. Colombia are a side capable of playing very well but they don’t always come out and deliver a massive threat in games. This could be a huge opportunity for the Three Lions to set themselves up for a good knockout stage campaign.

Los Cafeteros to miss Rodriguez?

Colombia showed some good spirit and fight in their group stage after losing their opener against Japan, which was largely down to Los Cafeteros having a man sent off in the first five minutes. But they responded to that in emphatic fashion by hammering an average Poland side 3-0 and then took out Senegal 1-0 in their final match when qualification for the round of sixteen was still at stake. So with them having earned back to back clean sheets, under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 19/40 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 29th, 2018 at 9:43 p.m.) is a Colombia v England prediction we are throwing out there. Colombia looked more about defence than attack in their qualification campaign and only averaged a goal per game just about.

Colombia have actually won just four of their last twelve games, so with that kind of form there should be nothing for England to fear. Colombia do have four clean sheets in their last five games so another good Colombia v England prediction is both teams not to score is at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 29th, 2018 at 9:43 p.m.). Radamel Falcao is their big hero up front and he is at 6/1 in the first goalscorer market but you would hope the pace of England’s young back line would be able to handle him. Colombia will be looking for their first-ever win over England having drawn two and lost three of their five previous contests.

Three Lions face first big test

After earning expected wins against Tunisia and Panama, England rested most of their starting eleven for their final group stage match against Belgium, which they lost 1-0. No harm done there but it does mean that for the first time at this World Cup, the Three Lions’ young squad will get its first serious test when they take on Colombia on Tuesday. While England had the luxury of resting players in their final group stage match, Colombia didn’t and the South Americans could well be facing having to go into this game without their star man James Rodriguez who picked up an injury in their win over Senegal which booked their place in the round of sixteen.

Harry Kane has scored five goals and going into the round of sixteen is the Golden Boot leader and he is the 6/5 anytime goalscorer favourite at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 29th, 2018 at 9:43 p.m.). England need some more big performances from the Tottenham man as he is carrying them in front of goal. England were twelve games unbeaten and on a four-match winning streak before that loses against Belgium, but again you can’t take much from it. This is likely to be a low scoring game with the pressures of the knockout stage here and if the Three Lions get through it is likely not going to be by more than a one-goal margin at 5/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 29th, 2018 at 9:43 p.m.). While the Three Lions have looked a good positive side going forward, they didn’t keep a clean sheet in an easy group stage campaign.

Colombia vs England Prediction

England are the favourites to win this match up and we can’t argue with that. We are just rolling with England to win in the match outright for our prediction and it is as simple as that. This is not going to be an easy game for either. Colombia are a better technical side, while England carry the bigger threat. We are going with the latter to win out.
