Peru vs Colombia Match Preview
Peru have struggled for consistency and they have narrowly returned to the winning ways as they beat Costa Rica (1-0) on Thursday, where Christian Cueva’s opener early in the second half proved enough for their only second win in six outings. They now host Colombia hoping for more of the same but Ricardo Gareca’s men should be in for more of a task.
Indeed, Colombia come into the match after outclassing Panama (3-0) with goals from William Tesillo, Luis Muriel, and Radamel Falcao, as they connected their fourth win in five outings since October.
Los Cafeteros have beaten United States (2-4), Costa Rica (3-1), and Japan (0-1) only to see the streak interrupted by Korea Republic (2-1), where a rotated line-up hardly showed off. Still, we now expect them in top shape and we feel they should be able to impress once again.
La Blanquirroja have been tougher to beat at home ground but still looked far from their best as they suffered three losses in last five outings here, which will feel just as worrying ahead of the Copa America tournament in Brazil.
They should now be very motivated to connect a winning streak ahead of the trip but we don’t feel Peru have what it takes, as we now back Colombia to secure a win at Estadio Monumental – which comes priced at 7/4 with bet365.
Still, we feel we’re in for a tough challenge and a narrow contest as we also back a Yes on Both teams to score, hoping to see Peru motivated for a pick-me-up of their own and backing such a claim at 6/5 with William Hill – which could as well prove the best approach to the fixture.
