This will be the fifth meeting between these two nations in the last two years and, while Peru were victorious in the most recent game, Colombia had convincingly won the previous three encounters.
Reinaldo Rueda’s men have not yet clicked in the final third in this competition given their considerable firepower up front, although they did score in their games against the two finalists of the competition, Brazil and Argentina.
Los Cafeteros have though been improving as the tournament has progressed and there should be interest in backing them to end the competition with a flourish.
Colombia vs Peru Tips & Predictions
The price of 4/5 (1.80) for a Colombian victory looks fair enough, while combining this selection with both teams to score sees the odds rise to an appealing 11/4 (3.75).
