Colombia vs Peru Predictions

  • Under 2.5 goals have been scored in seven of Colombia’s last eight games, and in six of the last eight to feature the Peruvians.
  • Colombia are both winless and goalless in their last five World Cup qualification games.
  • The hosts may not be worth backing outright after drawing eight of their 14 games in this campaign, but they did beat Peru 3-0 in the reverse fixture.

Crunch qualification clash awaits Colombia and Peru

With Colombia and Peru level on points and sitting fourth and fifth, respectively, in South America’s World Cup qualification group, Friday’s head-to-head meeting could provide decisive in deciding who travels to Qatar later this year.

Colombia hammered Peru 3-0 in Lima last summer, but are winless, and goalless, in their last five competitive games, losing to Brazil and, remarkably, drawing each of the other four 0-0. Reinaldo Rueda’s team have now drawn eight of their 14 games in the group, and 10 of their 18 under his management. Despite possessing a star-studded squad and finishing third in the Copa America last year, the hosts may not be worth backing on Friday.

Visitors Peru won consecutive qualifiers in November to reignite their own hopes of a trip to Qatar, having lost their previous two to nil. Prior to their wins over Venezuela and Bolivia, Peru had seen under 2.5 goals scored in six successive games, a run stretching back to their 3-2 Copa America third place playoff loss to Colombia last Summer.

Lack of goals likely in nervous affair

Considering the stakes at play in this encounter, a tense affair seems likely, and Colombia have reached fourth place in the group thanks in no small part to their solidity, winning just three games.

Under 2.5 goals have been scored in six of Peru’s last eight games, and in seven of the Colombians’ last eight. Backing less than three goals to be scored here, therefore, seems a great play.

Despite Colombia’s recent lack of goals, they do possess a strong home record, losing just once on their own turf in this campaign and keeping four home clean sheets. A scrappy 1-0 home win, then, could prove to be a decent correct score prediction.
