Colombia vs Panama

Competition – International Friendly

Stadium –  Estadio Nemesio Camacho (El Campin)

Date: 3rd June 2019

Kick-off time – 23:00 GMT

Colombia will be looking to get in shape ahead of the Copa America with this game against Panama.

They had been on a three-game winning streak before visiting Seoul to play South Korea in March.  The South Koreans defeated them 2-1 to end their winning run and it willould be interesting to see if they can get back to winning ways here.

Colombia has some of the best attacking players in Europe and their countrymen will be eager to see their array of stars just before they head to Brazil.

Colombia have beaten the United States, Costa Rica and Japan in three of their last four games and their fans would be hoping they can replicate their last performance against this opponent when they won 4-0.

Panama haven’t done so well since they came back from the last FIFA World Cup however they managed to stage a strong performance in their last game against Brazil.

The match ended 1-1 against the Copa America hosts and that draw ended their three-match losing streak.

Panama will be keen to make a similarly good impression as they did against Brazil when they take to the field for this game.

Colombia have a tough opening game in the Copa America against Argentina on the 15th June and this game gives them a chance to finely tune their approach before that tournament gets underway.

Bookmakers have priced Colombia up as extremely strong favourites to come out on top in this game while Panama will start the game as massive underdogs.

Goal markets point to a high scoring friendly as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on.

This game gets underway at 23:00 BST.
