Tip Colombia - Peru
Prediction published on January 25, 2022 at 3:28 PM - Modified on January 25, 2022 at 4:28 PM
Colombia welcomes Peru to the Metropolitano Roberto Melendez for this crucial World Cup qualifier. Both teams are on 17 points but the hosts have a better goal difference therefore they are in fourth place with Peru in fifth. Colombia had a good 2-1 victory over Honduras in a friendly international last week. They know that a loss would see Peru leapfrog them into the automatic qualifying spot. Columbia have an excellent recent record and are unbeaten in their last six home matches and have only lost once in their last 10 home games. The points table is so close that eighth placed Bolivia can possibly move into fourth place with victory. The gap between fourth place and eighth place is just two. Columbia have only lost once to Peru in their last eleven home matches.
Peru have warmed up for this match with two friendly internationals winning one and drawing the other. They are unbeaten in their last four matches. They have won their last away fixture in the qualifiers which was a 2-1 win over Venezuela. This victory was however preceded by five successive away losses. They have only won twice in their seven away matches in their qualifying campaign. Peru’s biggest problem has been their defence on the road and have only kept one clean sheet in their last 15 away matches. They have an uphill battle in this match as they have only recorded one win against Colombia in their last 20 meetings.
Key points Colombia - Peru
Columbia have only lost once in their last ten matches across all competitions.
Five of Columbia’s last six matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
They have kept clean sheets in three of their last four home matches.
Three of Peru’s last four matches have produced over 2.5 goals.
In only two of their last nine matches have both teams scored.
Conclusion Colombia - Peru
Victory for either team could go a long way to booking their ticket to Qatar while defeat could see the loser fall to possibly 7th position if other results go against them. Columbia have been miserly in defence especially at home therefore we are backing the under 2.5 goals bet for this match.
