Uruguay may have scored nine times in the group stage with Darwin Nunez continuing his rich vein of form, but la Celeste had to show their meaner side against Brazil in a tactical quarter-final that finished 0-0 and was settled by Manuel Ugarte's winning penalty. Marcelo Bielsa has built a team in his high-pressing own image and el Loco will once again seek a plan, this time with a few key faces injured or suspended.

Colombia were purring in their 5-0 quarter-final defeat of Panama, with James Rodriguez, Jhon Cordoba, Luis Diaz, Richard Rios and Miguel Borja all on target in los Cafeteros' biggest winning margin in a Copa America fixture. Nestor Lorenzo's side are now unbeaten in 27 games and on a 10- game winning run, playing some vibrant football that dates back to the era of Carlos Valderrama, Faustino Asprilla and Freddy Rincon. They'll go for the jugular, they know no other way.

With kick-off fast approaching at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, the atmosphere is building. Uruguay must decide who will replace the injured Ronald Araujo at the back after his injury, with Jose Maria Gimenez most likely. There will also be a change in midfield after Nahitan Nandez red card. Jefferson Lerma should return for Colombia after suspension, with James Rodriguez certain to start after finding his form again.
