Argentina vs Colombia Prediction
Argentina’s chances of winning
Before I tell you anything about the chances of them winning you should look at this tweet.

As you can see in the tweet you will find out that their chances of winning the game are really high.
For the time being, Lionel Scaloni will be hesitant of tampering with this team. The team did an outstanding job, easily defeating Ecuador and putting the game on a level playing field. Scaloni is unlikely to make any defensive line changes, with Nahuel Molina, German Pezzella, Nicolas Otamendi, and Marcos Acuna all slated to start.
Scaloni has the power to make changes, but given their performance against Ecuador, it would be prudent to do so. Scaloni has the option of bringing Guido Rodriguez into the middle to provide some steadiness. Last game, Leandro Paredes started as an anchor, but things may change.
Colombia’s chances of winning
In Argentina vs Colombia prediction, this part is dedicated to Colombia. Colombia has no injury or suspension concerns, but Reinaldo Rueda will be concerned by his team’s difficulties in the last third. Colombian attackers Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata were poor in the final third, as seen by their performance against Uruguay.
With the addition of Miguel Borja, who may replace Atalanta striker Muriel, Rueda will attempt to rejuvenate that line. Zapata is expected to maintain his starting spot since he has shown some fire in his previous appearances. The central defense will most likely remain the same, with Yerry Mina and Davinson Sanchez continuing their relationship. Daniel Munoz should maintain his right-back position, while William Tessilo should move to the left-back position.
