Both Colombia and Ivory Coast won their first games so the pair will be in confident mood as they prepare to face-off in Brasilia.
The South Americans get the nod from bookies, in the wake of their 3-0 hammering of Greece, BetVictor installing them as 23/20 favourites while the Elephants are 14/5 with Coral to follow their 2-1 success against Japan with another triumph.
However, the route to profit in this potentially open clash could be in the goal markets. Banker hunters could do worse than consider 888Sport’s 13/15 for both teams to get on the scoresheet and it’s 21/20 with Stan James for the sides to conjure up more than 2.5 goals between them.
There’s scope for even more than that though and it’s hard to resist a modest flutter on a tally higher than 3.5 at 11/4 (William Hill).
Over 3.5 goals – 11/4 (William Hill)
