The Uruguay national team failed to beat Colombia in the home match of the selection for the 2022 World Cup.
Football fans were eagerly waiting for the Uruguay-Colombia match to place a bet on sports at the bookmaker companies online. The main match of the day in terms of tournament significance promised to be a memorable event, because in comparison with the September mini-cycle, the teams could count on the attack stars — Suarez, Cavani, Falcao, and Zapata. However, neither the quantity nor the quality of the forwards brought at least one goal scored. Still, it was an exciting game worth paying attention to.
The Course of the Game
In the middle of the first half, the Suarez’s goal was canceled by VAR, who recorded an offside, and after the break, Zapata missed a hundred percent chance. Diaz seemed to have done everything for the Atalanta striker, but Muslera’s incredible rescue canceled not only the goal, but also a possible scandal.
The thing is that the counterattack of the Colombians was preceded by a fall in the penalty area of the guests of De La Cruz, however, both the chief referee and the VAR did not see a violation by Mina. The final draw did not satisfy anyone. Uruguay, although it remained in third place, missed the opportunity to break away from its pursuers, and even lost the hero of the September matches, de Arrascaeta due to the injury. Furthermore, Colombia allowed Ecuador to take a fourth place. Reynaldo Rueda’s team has the fifth place, from where you can get to the World Cup only through intercontinental play-offs.
In the next match, Uruguay will play against Argentina, and Colombia will host Brazil on its field. Both matches will take place on October 11. What will be the result of the games? All football fans are eagerly waiting for these matches to place bets via football betting sites and have a good time by watching an exciting game.
