Colombia vs Peru Predictions and Betting Tips

While we await Sunday’s finale, Peru and Colombia would go at each other for a chance to claim the bronze medal on Saturday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.

This would be the 68th meeting between both sides as Colombia edge just ahead with 26 wins in the prior 67 meetings while Peru has won 19 of those games. Peru managed to get the better of the Colombians in the group stage. Can they do it once again to claim the bronze medal?

Who picks up this bronze medal ?

Colombia, once again, had to play a penalty shootout in their semifinals match against Argentina just like they did in the quarterfinals against Uruguay. Lautaro Martinez has initially put La Albiceleste in front but a well-worked goal from Luis Diaz levelled matters. This took the game to penalties with Emi Martinez emerging the hero for the Argentines after saving three penalties.

Peru, on the other hand, was downed in regular time by the Brazilians. Only one goal separated both sides once again, just like Brazil’s quarterfinals match. Lucas Paqueta scored the winning goal after some brilliant work from Neymar on the left-hand side- the Brazilian midfielder’s second goal in the knockout stages.

Colombia vs Peru Prediction: 1-2

Although Peru didn’t start well, they still managed to put out a series of decent performances in the group games and the knockout. However, they couldn’t shock the football world with a win against the hosts in the semis. As such, we would be siding with them to beat Colombia who hasn’t been at its best in this Copa America.
