USA vs Colombia

Experienced attacker Jozy Altidore is sidelined with injury and he will be sorely missed at the Copa America Centenario. The likes of Kyle Beckerman, Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley, though, made the final roster and they are all likely to start against Colombia. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann is likely to stick to the 4-3-3 formation. Aston Villa shoot-stopper Brad Guzan should start in goal.

Injured: Jozy Altidore

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Colombia coach Jose Nestor Pekerman has selected his 23-man squad for the Copa America Centenario, with Oscar Murillo missing out through injury. Real Madrid ace James Rodriguez made the final roster, but Pachuca defender Oscar Murillo was forced to withdraw from the squad with injury. As a result, Yerry Mina will travel to United States to represent his country at the upcoming showpiece tournament. The likes of Radamel Falcao, Jackson Martinez, Fredy Guarin, Victor Ibarbo, Teofilo Gutierez, Cristian Higuita and Adrian Ramos have all been overlooked. Carlos Bacca is likely to lead the attack for the Colombians against USA.

Injured: Oscar Murillo

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Quick Facts

  • USA recorded only one win in last six meetings with Colombia
  • In their last meeting at Copa America Colombia recorded a 1-0 win over USA
  • The Yanks are on a four-game winning run ahead of their Copa America opener
  • Los Cafeteros scored exactly three goals in each of their last three games
  • Carlos Bacca has netted 11 goals for Colombia national team to date
  • Clint Dempsey is likely to earn his 125th cap for USA against Colombia

USA vs Colombia prediction

2016 Copa America hosts USA aim to kick off their campaign with a win over Colombia and considering that Jose Pekerman doesn’t count on several important players for the upcoming tournament, I believe that there is a big value in betting on the Yanks, who have been scoring goals for fun. Jurgen Klinsmann’s troops are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and there is every chance the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s game at Levi’s Stadium.

Betting Tip: USA to win (0 AH)
