Team Condition: The Spanish national team is in excellent spirits, having clinched victory in the Nations League last year. They are now considered one of the top contenders for the upcoming European Championship. Having been crowned champions of Europe in 2008 and 2012, Spain faces a tough group stage in the upcoming continental tournament, competing against Croatia, Italy, and Albania. While the group presents significant challenges, the Spaniards are confident in their abilities to succeed.

Colombia

Standings: The Colombian national team is currently engaged in the qualification campaign for the 2026 World Cup. After 6 rounds, Colombia’s main team has amassed 12 points, securing third place in the standings. The top 6 national teams from Latin America will advance to the World Cup. Additionally, the Colombians, currently ranked 15th in the FIFA rankings, will compete in the Copa America this year.

Recent matches: The Colombian national team, also known as the Coffee Roasters, has not played any games in 2024. However, late last year, Colombia competed in two friendlies, defeating Mexico 3-2 and Venezuela 1-0. Prior to those friendlies, Colombia secured victories against Paraguay (1-0) and Brazil (2-1) in World Cup qualification matches. Before those wins, Nestor Lorenzo’s squad played three consecutive draws against Ecuador (0-0), Uruguay (2-2), and Chile (0-0).

Will not play: All the players called up to the national team squad are ready to participate in the match.

Team Condition: The Colombian team has been on an impressive unbeaten streak and is currently playing excellent football. They are currently focused on preparing for the upcoming Copa America, scheduled for the summer. In the group stage of the tournament, Colombia will face Brazil and Paraguay. Securing the second position in the group will be sufficient to advance to the playoffs. Given their recent performances, we believe that the Colombian national team has a strong chance of advancing from the group stage at the Copa America and qualifying for the 2026 World Cup.
