This might be the most impactful match of the current international break in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying, with leaders Uruguay taking on Colombia, who sit in the fourth and final automatic qualification place halfway through the group and are just three points behind the leaders. The standings could swing heavily depending on the outcome of this match, making it one well worth close monitoring and potentially a game that could have massive ramifications in the final standings.
Uruguay have won their last two qualifying matches, including a 3-0 win over Venezuela last week. Colombia are in similarly good form, beating Paraguay on the road before heading home to get ready for this match. They've also won four of their last five qualifiers, surging high up the table after a slow start had many questioning when Colombia would be any good again.
Now Colombia look plenty good, especially with star playmaker James Rodriguez playing so well for Real Madrid right now. But Uruguay are no slouches, with Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani in strong form, plus playmaking midfielder Nicolas Lodeiro has finally found himself in MLS with the Seattle Sounders. When that trio is playing well there are few situations Uruguay can't play out of, so Colombia will have to be at their very best if they want to play spoiler and completely change the complexion of the current qualifying standings in South America.
