Match Preview & Team News
Peruvians will have to carry the burden of underdogs second time in a row. They are currently priced at high 5/1 rate to make an upset and win this clash. Stats were similar for the opening duel versus Brazil earlier this week, but they got demolished easily 0-3 FT. This squad is nowhere close to level and quality to a team which performed solidly on previous World Cup. One point versus Colombia would surely be a good way to boost confidence and team spirits. Read on our Copa America betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
These two sides have met very recently in World Cup 2022 Qualifiers in Lima. Despite the home pitch advantage, Peru were easily defeated 0-3 FT. Mina, Uribe and Diaz scored goals for the Colombians back then. All-time stats are also going against Peruvians heavily. They were victorious in only two out of 23 encounters versus this opponent while losing 13 games. The last meeting in Copa America though in 2016 ended without goals. Edwin Cardona was the one who secured three points for Colombia in the first game in the tournament versus Ecuador and served revenge for horrible 1-6 loss to same opponent earlier. Muriel, Zapata, Rodriguez and co were unable to repeat the same versus Venezuela, but their back line looked strong enough equally.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Peru have scored only two goals in their last five competitive duels across competitions. Considering how good defensive numbers Colombia has, BTTS NO at 7/10 seems like an obvious choice.
Peru have been a disaster for a while now. They failed to create one single goal opportunity versus Brazil a couple of days ago and we believe that is going to be the case in round two as well. Colombia to win at 4/6 is our tip number two.
