Why bet on Colombia versus Peru?
Don’t let Colombia’s recent form fool you. Although the Colombians show 3 losses, a win, and a draw, the recent record doesn’t paint an exact picture. Colombia beat Uruguay via penalty kicks. The Colombians then fell to Lionel Messi and Argentina via penalty kicks. In both cases, the Colombians pushed favored teams to the limit. More luck in the shootout with Argentina, and the Colombians would be playing on Saturday.

Why bet on Peru versus Colombia?
At the Copa America, Peru has played great. The Peruvians didn’t start out playing great. They dropped a match to Brazil by 4 goals. But instead of wallowing in misery, Peru picked themselves up and won 2 of their last 3 group matches. They then beat Paraguay in a shootout before falling to Copa favorite Brazil in a 1-0 match.

Final Betting Analysis: Colombia vs Peru
The Colombians are in better form, but Peru appears to have an edge. Not only did the Peruvians beat Colombia earlier in the tournament, but they also played a great match against Brazil. Heading into the Copa, Brazil was hands down, the team to beat.
Peru didn’t beat Brazil. They hung with them, though. More impressively, the Peruvians hung with Brazil after losing 0-4 to the Brazilians earlier in the tournament.
Both teams are in good enough form to win this. The biggest difference is that Peru has played excellent soccer pretty much since the first match loss to Brazil while Colombia has played great soccer only in their last couple of matches.
Peru has a victory over Colombia. That should help them in this. If you back a team to win, back Peru.
