Colombia the call at 13/5

Live on BBC1: Sat 17.00: Colombia can edge out Greece by one (13/5, Ladbrokes) in a potentially tight World Cup Group C fixture.

Unless there’s been a radical overhaul of tactical thinking by international coaches, the probability is that the opening encounters in this year’s World Cup tournament will be predictably tight, cagey affairs.

Consider, for example, South Africa in 2010 where half a dozen of the opening 16 group matches ended all square; another six finished 1-0. The likelihood of punters watching a series of similarly close duels is high. Only Germany, who beat Australia 4-0 in their opening match, hit the ground running.

Backers anticipating another slow start should note that Stan James post 23/10 against Saturday’s Group C match between Colombia and Greece ending in stalemate.

Granted, Colombia qualified a comfortable second behind Argentina in the competitive South American group (hammering Uruguay 4-0 in the process), but Greece, 9/2 (Betfred) to win on Saturday, are no pushovers – they’re current ranked 10th in the world by FIFA.

Taking advantage of William Hill’s 11/8 odds for it to be goalless at half time could pay dividends, while Ladbrokes post 19/4 against it ending as a score draw at 90 minutes.

Punters expecting a conclusive outcome may, however, prefer the 13/5 available at the same firm for Colombia to enjoy a single goal margin of victory, or else BetVictor’s 19/4 for them to win 1-0.
