Colombia will look to clinch the top spot in Group C when it takes on El Salvador in its final group match of the U-20 World Cup 2013.
Los Cafeteros sit atop the group with four points but only lead second-place Turkey and El Salvador by one point; even last place Australia can tie Colombia with a victory over Turkey in its final match.
The South American side started its tournament with a disappointing 1-1 draw against Australia but bounced back with a clutch 1-0 victory over Turkey with a 52nd minute goal from Juan Fernando Quintero. A victory will clinch the top spot for the Colombians while a draw would leave them with at least second place. With a loss, El Salvador would leap past Colombia and Turkey would have the potential to do the same; an Australian win could also push Colombia back into third place if the South Americans lose against El Salvador.
The Central Americans opened their tournament with a 3-0 loss against Turkey but bounced back with a huge 2-1 victory against Australia. In the latter match El Salvador came back from an early 1-0 deficit.
El Salvador must win in order to qualify; a loss will keep them in third and potentially push them into fourth place depending on whether Australia defeats Turkey by a large goal margin.
Prediction: The Colombians are decided favorites and should have little trouble pulling a victory here; 2-0 Colombia.
Start Time: Kick off starts at 2 PM EST.
TV: The match will be not broadcast in the USA.
