Betting on underdogs in football matches

Colombia and Panama go head to head in Glendale, Arizona, in a match from the 1/4-finals of Copa America. Los Cafeteros are favorites here, but there’s nothing easy in this tournament. Let’s preview it in our Betting on underdogs in football matches.

Colombia are still unbeaten in the competition since the start of the group stage. They have two wins and one draw in their three matches so far. Nestor Lorenzo’s team secured wins over Paraguay and Costa Rica, while they also made a 1-1 draw against Brazil.

Los Cafeteros conceded first against Brazil, but at the end of the first half Daniel Munoz equalised for the Colombians. He got an assist from Jhon Cordoba and put the ball in the net.

Colombia’s attacking trio looks impressive. Luis Diaz and James Rodriguez support the striker Jhon Cordoba upfront and this promises some problems for the Panama defenders.

Panama surprised many people by reaching the Copa America 1/4-finals. Coached by the Spanish manager Thomas Christiansen, the Panamians lost their first match against Uruguay, but after that achieved two consecutive wins against the USA and Bolivia. This allowed Panama to reach the knockout phase.

In their last match Panama achieved a crucial 3-1 win against Bolivia in Orlando. Jose Fajardo opened the score for Panama while Guerrero and Yanis finished the job.

The center-back Jose Cordoba is one of the most important players in Panama’s team. Recently signing a contract with Norwich City, Cordoba is a tall defender who can command the whole defense. His performance against Colombia is going to be very important for the whole team.

That’s the Betting on underdogs in football matches guide for the upcoming Copa America fixture between Colombia and Panama. Let’s see if Los Cafeteros can prove they are the favorites for the win here. Surely that’s a great opportunity for them to reach the 1/2-finals.
