Colombia celebrate
The Socceroos suffered against Norway on Friday and our tipster thinks that the South Americans can pile on the agony at Craven Cottage on Wednesday

Colombia and Australia meet at Fulham's Craven Cottage in an international friendly fixture on Tuesday night.

Thee two nations continue their preparations for this summer’s World Cup in Russia, but they could barely have had more contrasting fortunes in Friday’s friendlies.

The Socceroos suffered a chastening 4-1 defeat at the hands of Norway, while Jose Pekerman’s charges came from 2-0 down to claim a stunning 3-2 victory against France in Paris.

Latest odds

It is no real surprise, then, that the South American side are dabblebet’s 2/5 (1.40) favourites to maintain momentum with a victory in west London.

Australia will hope for much better and they can be backed at 13/2 (7.50) with dabblebet to claim a first victory under the stewardship of Bert van Marwijk.

The odds compilers offer 100/30 (4.33) that these nations settle for a share of the spoils from Tuesday’s tussle.

Team news

van Marwijk, who led the Netherlands to the 2010 World Cup final, may ring the changes as he looks to find a winning formula in the build-up to this summer’s showpiece.

Colombia have scored seven goals in their last two games and key duo Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez, who both started against Les Bleus, may well feature again here.

Free-scoring South Americans

Colombia have been on target in all but one of their last 11 matches and showed tremendous character in overturning a two-goal deficit against Didier Deschamps’ side on Friday night.

Pekerman’s men are surely brimming with belief and punters may be tempted by dabblebet’s 13/8 (2.63) quote for the South American side to score at least three goals against the Socceroos on this occasion.

Preview and predictions

Australia only just squeezed passed Syria over two legs in a World Cup play-off late last year and their shambolic showing against Norway suggests that van Marwijk has work to do if his side are to impress in Russia.

The Socceroos could suffer once more against Pekerman’s polished side on Tuesday and dabblebet’s 21/20 (2.05) quote for Colombia (-1) in the handicap market may offer decent value for punters here.
