The Colombians are also the only group winners to have been drawn against a second-placed team, with both Brazil and Uruguay benefitting from favourable draws against third-placed Paraguay and Peru respectively. Having said that, they still should fancy their chances of dethroning the two-in-a-row champions.

They were also ruthless against Ecuador in their opener and the only blotch so far was a draw with Japan in the second game.
