Peru VS Colombia Today Match LIVE Football Score 4/6/2021
Peru welcome regional neighbours Colombia to Lima’s Estadio Nacional on Thursday evening for their FIFA World Cup 2022 qualification clash. Both of these sides have so far fallen short of the mark during their first few qualification games and will both be looking to rejuvenate their respective campaigns on Thursday.
Peru are currently ninth in qualification, above bottom-placed Bolivia on goal difference alone, and things are not looking good for the team. Another issue for Peru boss Ricardo Gareca is that La Blanquirroja have not played a single minute of football since November 2020. A win for Peru would certainly do wonders for team confidence going forward.
Colombia, a side that are typically nailed on to qualify for World Cup qualification, have also been struggling in recent times. After a comprehensive 3-0 win over Venezuela in the opening game, Colombia have picked up just one point in their last three. Last time out against Ecuador, Reinaldo Rueda’s men were beaten 6-1, with James Rodriguez picking up the only goal of the game for La Tricolor.
