Colombia vs Peru Picks & Game Preview

 

Colombia

Colombia may have felt slightly fortunate to have reached the final four following a fairly disappointing group campaign. They won their opening game 1-0 against Ecuador thanks to Edwin Cardona's goal on the stroke of half time, meaning they were always in a strong position to qualify, but La Tricolor's next three games resulted in just one point, including a defeat to Saturday's opponents, seeing them fall to third place as a result. Colombia currently sit second in their group with Brazil occupying the top spot.

 

 

Colombia vs Peru Picks & Game Preview

 

Peru 

Peru got off to a disappointing start in the group stage, as they were thrashed 4-0 by pre-tournament favorites Brazil, but they would quickly bounce back to achieve a high finish. They picked up an impressive 2-1 win over Colombia, and then finished with a 2-2 draw with Ecuador and a 1-0 victory against Venezuela. However, Peru tasted a hefty defeat in the opening game of their Copa America adventure. Although they shipped in four goals on the night, they were still unable to retread their path to the final of two years ago when they lost 1-0 to Brazil on Tuesday.

 

Prediction

While Peru may have had the more impressive tournament based on the relative expectations of the two sides, and they did defeat Colombia in the group stage,Colombia do have plenty of quality at their disposal to defeat Per on Saturday.
