Uruguay will be without Ronald Araujo in the semi-finals after the defender suffered a leg injury against Brazil. The Barcelona player was forced to come off the pitch in the 33rd minute and will likely miss the remainder of the tournament.

Matias Vina also was subbed off in the quarter-finals after the left-back was dealing with muscle discomfort, but he should be ready to go against Colombia. Nahitan Nandez, meanwhile, was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Rodrygo, earning himself a suspension for the upcoming match.

Colombia's dominant victory over Panama allowed Nestor Lorenzo to take a majority of his starters off the pitch in the second half, giving James Rodriguez and co. plenty of rest before the semi-finals.

Jefferson Lerma will also return to the starting lineup against Uruguay after the Crystal Palace man earned a one-game suspension for yellow card accumulation in the group stage.

Uruguay vs Colombia score prediction

Uruguay's makeshift backline will not be able to handle Colombia's prolific attack. The Group D winners have already scored 10 goals at this summer's Copa America, and they should surely add to their total without Araujo and Nandez to sure up Uruguay's defense. Ultimately, it is hard to bet against a team without a loss in over two years.

Prediction: Uruguay 1-2 Colombia
