COL Vs URU Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Top spot at stake for unbeaten Colombia in the qualifiers.
The South American qualifiers for the 2020 World Cup couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start for Uruguay. After just about scampering their way to a 2-1 win against Chile, Uruguay were sent packing 4-2 by Ecuador, a display which is bound to have sent shivers down the country’s ranks.
The side’s first defeat since losing out on penalties in 2019, the result was indicative of the slump Uruguay find themselves in at the moment.

Above them in 5th place with a win and a draw, Colombia will take on Uruguay today looking to keep their unbeaten record intact in the qualification round. However, with them conceding twice against Chile the last time they stepped out, Colombia themselves have contentious issues to contend with currently.
