Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 3:30am BST (on Wednesday). Premier Sports will provide live coverage in the United Kingdom.

Overview

Colombia come into this fixture after a 2-0 victory over USA in the opening match of the 2016 Copa America. Cristian Zapata opened the scoring in the eighth minute from a corner before Real Madrid star James Rodriguez doubled the lead from a spot kick before the break.

A victory for Jose Pekerman's side over Paraguay on Tuesday will confirm their spot in the last eight of the tournament. Colombia lead the table with three points after one match and have won the last four matches played in all competitions.

Paraguay, on the other hand, have a poor record coming into this fixture. With just one win in last five and two in last 10, Colombia are the favourites to win the tie on Tuesday. A defeat for Paraguay could see them struggle to qualify for the quarter-final with one match to go.
