Possible INs and OUTs of this game:
With Columbia already clinching the top spot, head coach Carlos Queiroz could make some changes to freshen things up.
Radamel Falcao was benched in the last game, for the in-form Duvan Zapata. Expect the Monaco captain to start here as he looks to show his worth to the team.
One player who is in contention to start is Santiago Arias. The Atletico Madrid right-back came off the bench in the first two games.
Cristian Zapata will be looking for his first start in the Copa America as well.
Goalkeeper David Ospina has left Colombia squad to be with his ailing father, whose condition has deteriorated, according to local media.
As a result, either Alvaro Montero or Camilo Vargas will replace Ospina in the squad.
