Colombia VS Peru LIVE Football Match Score June 6/21/2021
Having a 5 times more valuable squad than its opponent Colombia is favored to take home the three points in this match-up. It seems that historically, the hosts have close to no problem taking down Peru. The underdogs have won just 2 of 21 total meetings. The last 8 games that these two played resulted in 4 Colombia victories and 4 draws. Betting on a draw could also be a nice possibility, but considering the importance of this game and the points, we believe Colombia will aim for the victory.
As we already mentioned, this isn’t the highest goal-yielding match that you can get. The main reason for this is Peru’s inability to get past David Ospina. The underdogs have scored only 1 goal in the last 5 matches with Colombia and only 2 goals in their most recent 8. Backing the BTTS – No bet essentially means that we are backing Peru to fail to score.
Edwin Cardona netted the only goal of the game on the stroke of half time from a well-worked free kick, and Rueda’s men would hold on for the victory despite being outplayed for portions of the game.
In their second game, Colombia took on a Venezuela side with a long list of absentees through positive coronavirus tests, but they were unable to break the deadlock with the game finishing as a goalless draw.
While that was a rather disappointing result and Rueda’s side are yet to hit their stride, they do find themselves on the brink of reaching the knockout stage, with four points from their opening two games.
With four sides out of five in the group reaching the next round, Colombia would gain a seven-point lead over Peru with a victory on Monday, booking their spot in the quarter-finals, while they will still aim to finish as high as possible to gain a more favourable quarter-final tie.
They take on a Peru side who will likely compete for the final two qualification spots with Ecuador and Venezuela.
