Taking their prior sextet of matches before this one, in as many as 6 of them a wager on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a losing one.
Colombia head into the meeting following on from a 2-1 WC Qualifiers - South America win over Brazil in their most recent fixture.
In that match, Colombia had 40% possession and 23 attempts at goal with 10 of them on target. The only player to score for Colombia was Luis Díaz (75', 79'). Brazil got 12 attempts on goal with 3 of them on target. Gabriel Martinelli (4') scored for Brazil.
In 5 of the previous 6 clashes involving Colombia, a comparatively low number of goals have been hit between them and opposing teams. The overall average goals scored per game within that spell comes to a mere 1.33, with the number of goals averaged by Los Cafeteros equalling 0.83. Despite that, we’ll just have to find out if that pattern shall be sustained in this next match.
Head to head
Inspecting their prior head-to-head meetings dating back to 07/10/2016 tells us that Paraguay have won 1 of them and Colombia 3, with the tally of drawn results standing at 2.
9 goals were produced between them in this period, with 3 from Los Guaraníes and 6 created by Los Cafeteros. That is an average goals per game value of 1.5.
Our assessment here is that Paraguay will do well to be putting a goal past this Colombia side who should score at least once to gain the upper hand.
We’re therefore expecting a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 winning score for Colombia at the end of this game.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
