The road to the Copa America 2021 final will get even more exciting as the knockout stages are about to start. Uruguay and Colombia will clash today at Estadio Mané Garrincha in Brasilia in a must-watch game for the quarterfinals. FuboTV will broadcast this exciting duel in the US.
La Celeste have struggled in the group phase, especially when it came to the attack. However, Oscar Washington Tabarez's boys have sealed a place in the following round and their continental dream is still alive.
Meanwhile, Los Cafeteros' situation in Zone B was even more complicated as they failed to grab the three points after Matchday 1. Reinaldo Rueda's side has plenty of work to do if it wants to keep in contention for the Copa America title.
Uruguay's confirmed lineup
Uruguay have faced Paraguay in the group finale without Luis Suarez, who was given some rest before the beginning of the knockout stages. However, he is expected to be back into the starting eleven for the upcoming match.
This will be Uruguay's lineup against Colombia: Fernando Muslera; José María Giménez, Diego Godín, Matías Viña, Nahitan Nández; Matías Vecino, Federico Valverde, Rodrigo Bentancur; Giorgian De Arrascaeta, Edinson Cavani, Luis Suárez.
Colombia's confirmed starting XI
Colombia will have to face this challenging task without their key player, Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, who has been ruled out for seeing the yellow card twice in the group stage, being booked in Los Cafeteros' last game against Brazil.
Still, Rueda can rely on a healthy squad for this crucial match. This is how Colombia will line up: David Ospina; David Muñoz, Yerry Mina, Davinson Sánchez, William Tesillo; Rafael Borré, Wilmar Barrios, Gustavo Cuéllar, Luis Díaz; Luis Muriel and Duván Zapata.
