The stage where both were measured was the Metropolitan Stadium of Barranquilla, in a schedule the high temperatures and humidity were present. The duel corresponded to the fifth day, which had been postponed due to the covid-19 pandemic. The hosts, led by Reinaldo Rueda, had just equalized without goals against Uruguay in Montevideo, and next Thursday they will face another tough match against Ecuador in Quito.
