Colombia vs Peru: Prediction and Betting Tips
Colombia needs more efficiency in attack
The goalless draw against Venezuela in their last match marked Colombia’s fifth consecutive match in the Copa America group stages without defeat. It was also Colombia’s fourth match without defeat in matches where Colombia were favorites.
The last three H2H matches with Peru saw Colombia win to nil and their Unbeaten run against Peru extends back to ten years. Coach Rueda’s team were surprisingly held to a draw by Venezuela in their last match. Despite completely dominating the game and fielding their best attackers Muriel and Zapata, the Colombians failed to convert any of their 23 goal attempts and eight shots on goal.
Colombia key stats
- Colombia have failed o score in two of their last ten matches
- BTTS happened in just three of Colombia’s last ten matches
- Colombia have won five of their last ten matches
Peru eyeing at least a point
Peru suffered their heaviest defeat in their opening match against Brazil 4-0 since the 2019 Copa America. Ricardo Gareca’s side will most likely compete with Venezuela and Ecuador for the final two spots to qualify for the second round. Despite their loss, they still have three matches and with a positive result against Colombia can open the way for more.
They have a very bad record against Colombia but they have to fight for at least a point as the Colombians have suffered against Venezuela who played very tight defense and couldn’t score.
The Peruvians can take some positives from their match against Brazil from their seven-goal attempts which proves that they can go forward and their 45% ball possession also shows that they can move the ball around even against tough opposition.
Peru key stats
- Peru have just one win in their last ten matches
- Peru haven’t scored against Colombia in their last three H2H matches
- In their last ten matches, Peru had no clean sheets
Colombia vs Peru Prediction
Colombia’s attacking power failed to score in the last match against Venezuela. Zapata and Muriel are one of the best-attacking duos in Copa America and much is expected of them by the Colombian fans.
La Tricolor are the favorites to win and they will do their best to keep their spot in the top two of the group to avoid a quarte-final matchup with either Argentina or Uruguay.
Despite the big defeat in their first match, Peru will show resilience against Colombia and if they defend well they can cause problems for their opponents.
Peru have scored in just one of their last five matches and none in their last three matches against Colombia. We think this match will see just one team scoring.
