Colombia and Cost Rica take each other on in Buenos Aires on Saurday night , Colombia will be looking to continue their winning streak having won five in a row since losing to Brazil in a friendly where they were reduced to ten men after fortynine minutes. Colombia have a terrific squad with Falcao , Quadrado, Navas, Rodriguez, Bacca and Martinez all quality playersplaying at top teams across Europe. While this is a friendly it is important for teams to get some game time together before the start of tournaments and this is an opportunity for Colombia to try out a few different fomations something Colombia manager will have to work on with so many talented attackers.
Cota Rica were one of the great surprises of the 2014 World Cup getting to the Quarter Finals and only losing on penalties from the Netherlands. With a solid team based around a great defence with a world class goalkeeper Costa Rica play a terrific counter attacking style using the pace of Arsenal forward Joel Campbell and the trickery of captain and star man Fulham striker Bryan Ruiz. Costa Rica will be managed by former Manchester City striker Paulo Wanchope who may have a more attacking style than his predecessor, that may or may not be good for Costa Rica we'll have to wait and see how they do at the Gold Cup.
Tough game this one to call Colombia are deserved favourites but I feel like Costa Rica will not lose this one by much. In fact I'm taking the unders as if Colombia do manage to get the win I think it will be a 1-0 or 2-0. We probably wont see full strenghth teams for the entire game as well. Take the Unders but as with all friendlies dont invest too much here.
