Our match prediction:
Uruguay and Colombia both started the qualification for World Cup 2018 how the wanted; with a victory. Uruguay was able to beat Bolivia 0-2 in La Paz meanwhile Colombia didn't have any trouble beating Peru at home with 2-0. In the second round the Colombians will travel towards Montevideo for the difficult away game against Uruguay. Uruguay superstars Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani are still suspended which could damage the start of the qualification against a team like Colombia. Normally both teams are very equal to each other. Without Suarez and Cavani the Colombians are slightly in favorite. With the help of the home fans Uruguay should be able to keep a point at home.
