Colombia vs England Prediction & Betting tips
Colombia vs. England – that’s the last round of the knockout round in Russia and you can look forward to a very exciting and eventful game. After all, two teams meet here, whose storm centers occupy sounding names. On the one hand, Radamel Falcao alias “El tigre” has been causing trouble for years in the opposing penalty areas. On the other hand, the English superstar and absolute Torgarant whirls Harry Kane. Colombia prevailed in Group H against Japan, Senegal and Poland and rose with two wins as group first in the knockout round. England also took second place behind Belgium in Group G with two wins.
For the bookmakers, the English are the favorites in the game. It is set for the 2018 World Cup knockout round against England betting odds of 2.10 on average for a victory of the British. A victory of the South Americans is rated with an average rate of 4.01. We also agree with these assessments and bet that England will prevail over Colombia. But let’s take a closer look at the starting position for this World Cup 2018 tip.
Colombia was the favorite of Group H before the start of the group stage. In a relatively weaker group, Colombians had an absolute horror start. Japan coach Jose Pekerman’s side drew a red card in the opening minutes of the game and came off the bench after a penalty shot by Japan. In outnumbered they could still compensate in the first half, but had to accept the decisive goal in minute 73 and thus lost the opening match against Japan. In the second duel everything went according to plan and Colombia won with a sovereign 0: 3 against rather disappointing Poland. In the last group match against Senegal, the Colombians had to win necessarily to survive the group. They did so and secured the victory with a 0: 1. However, the playful performance was at a very moderate level – Senegal was the better team over long distances. The central defender Yerry Mina secured with a header but the success of Colombia and brought his team the move into the second round. Against South America, the South Americans must increase significantly to move up in the top eight.
However, a big setback is the injury of superstar James Rodriguez in the final group game. The midfielder had to be replaced with Senegal in the 30th minute with muscular problems. Behind his mission is still a big question mark. If you want to place a tip against Colombia against England you should consider this fact for potential bets.
The English national team and big events – that’s one thing. With great expectations, the Three Lions have raced to World and European Championships in recent years, but never met those expectations. In this finals, the conditions around coach Gareth Southgate seem a bit different. With a great deal of respect and restraint, the English national team began the journey to Russia. The young, hungry team knew how to convince in Group G and managed to advance into the knockout stage with two wins – already an advance over the 2014 World Cup. Tunisia was defeated 2-1 in the first game and they beat Panama Englishmen a 6: 1-Kantersieg.
Outstanding actor once again: the captain and scorer of the service Harry Kane. Kane scored five goals in two games and is at the top of the scorers list. In the 0-1 defeat in the last group match against Belgium Kane was not used and was already spared for the knockout stages. The starting position before the last group match pointed to a tough game, which was also confirmed. Both nations were already qualified in advance for the knockout stages and therefore sent a B-Elf on the field. England were beaten 0-1 and now have the advantage over Belgium, the much easier way to contest the finals. Against central defender John Stones could fall out. He is suffering from a minor blister. Nevertheless, the English are favored in terms of betting odds in the game Colombia vs. England.
