One of the main break out teams of the last FIFA World Cup was Colombia. This side has given us many of the best players in world football and this week we have the opportunity to see them play for their country as they take on Bolivia away from home. I am excited to see how the stars of club football in Europe play for country so shall surely be watching this encounter.

This game is going to be dictated by how Colombia play. Bolivia are not a bad side but they are nowhere near the level of the opponents and the home crowd is the only thing going their way. That being said, in South America the home crowd does mean a lot.

Colombia though will feel that even away from home they will be good enough to win this match. This team has many amazing players but the man that I am most interested in watching has to be AC Milan striker, Carlos Bacca. This man has all the attributes to be world class and he is. In this game I think he will make a huge impact since getting away goals might be tough is this competition so they will rely on him heavily.

As far as result is concerned, I think that Colombia will win this. Since they are away from home, I think it will still be a tight result but nevertheless I am expecting an away win. We are getting a pretty good price on the away side here and I am going to place a pretty big bet on this since we are getting value. In addition to this, the away 2.5 goals is also a good bet since in South American football the games are generally pretty high scoring. 

Pick:
Colombia
