Everything is still up for grabs in Group H with the two knockout-stage places yet to be decided and three teams in contention. With that in mind, Colombia and Senegal are set for a tightly-contested battle to determine which side will make the last 16.
Senegal have four points after two matches, and only need a draw to secure a spot in the next round after defeating Poland (2-1) and drawing with Japan (2-2) in their prior matches.
Colombia’s case is a bit more complicated. After losing to Japan (2-1) and winning against Poland (3-0), Los Cafeteros need to win at all costs to make it to the next round. They can still qualify with a draw, but they would need winless Poland to beat Japan.
This will be the third time these two sides have met before. The two prior meetings were international friendlies with one win for Colombia (2-0, 2011) and one draw (2-2, 2014).
