The contrasting styles of play between the two countries should certainly make for an entertaining game.
The Colombians employ a positive, offensive-minded brand of soccer. When clicking on all cylinders, the Los Cafeteros attack is a thing of beauty to watch.
Led by captain and Real Madrid winger James Rodriguez, Colombia strolled to victories over the USA and Paraguay in its first two matches of the Copa America before resting key players in a 3-2 loss to Costa Rica.
The additional rest should not be overlooked, as Los Cafeteros will seek to use its speed on the edges to stretch the Peruvian defense for the entire 90 minutes.
Conversely, Peru will look to defend and counter-attack. While Los Incas may be the underdog, it has shown it can give as good as it gets and will not be intimated.
Peru is coming off of an exhilarating 1-0 victory over Brazil—a win that knocked the soccer giants out of the tournament.
It was a game in which Los Incas only had 34% of the possession and was outshot by the Brazilians 14-4. It was also mired in controversy as Peru striker Raul Ruidiaz’s game-winning goal came courtesy of a handball.
Nonetheless, Brazilian players admitted that they could not breakdown the Peruvian defense and the result was well-deserved.
Peru’s success in the Copa Centario 2016 is not a surprise to its players. Los Incas has advanced to the semifinals in the last four Copa America tournaments and is very confident in its ability to get past the high-flying Colombians.
