Both team are desperate for a win

After playing with ten men for 87 minutes plus stoppage time against Japan, Colombia can be forgiven their 2-1 defeat but the pressure is now on the 2014 quarter-finalists to bounce back against top seeds Poland. With two wins in ten games, Colombia are not in good form but Poland’s shock defeat to Senegal has set them back too – expect a nervous match, in which whichever of James Rodriguez/Radamel Falcao and Robert Lewandowski step things up to be the match winner.

Colombia have won their last three matches against Poland – three out of five in total – but they have never met in a major tournament.

They have only met once since the turn of the century, though neither side had any of their current squad players in action in the 2-1 Colombia win in 2006 in Chorzow.

Colombia look a far better side that Poland after their opening matches, and we expect the South Americans to triumph here.
