Match preview

2021 Copa America, Colombia will play against with Peruhome. Peru got off to a disappointing start in the group stage, as they were thrashed 4-0 by pre-tournament favourites Brazil, but they would quickly bounce back to achieve a high finish. A Sergio Pena finish and a Yerry Mina own goal saw them pick up an impressive 2-1 win over Colombia, and they finished with a 2-2 draw with Ecuador and a 1-0 victory against Venezuela, as Andre Carrillo netted the only goal of the game early in the second half. That commendable group campaign saw Ricardo Gareca's men finish in second spot in Group B, with their seven points only topped by Brazil. As a result, Los Incas were drawn against Paraguay, who came third in the opposite group, in the quarter-finals, and a dramatic game followed as they played out a 3-3 draw in Goiania. Paraguay took an early lead through Gustavo Gomez, but a Gomez own goal and goals from Gianluca Lapadula and Yoshimar Yotun gave Peru a 3-2 lead in the dying minutes, until Gabriel Avalos netted a late equaliser to take the tie to a penalty shootout. Nonetheless, Gareca's men would prevail as Miguel Trauco scored the winning penalty in sudden death after Pedro Gallese had denied Alberto Espinola, booking them a difficult clash with Brazil in the semi-finals. In a rerun of the 2019 Copa America final, Brazil again came out on top, knocking Peru out of the tournament with a 1-0 win thanks to Lucas Paqueta's first-half goal, leaving Los Incas to battle for third place this year.

They take on a Colombia side who came even closer to reaching the final, having taken Argentina to a penalty shootout. However, Reinaldo Rueda's men may have felt slightly fortunate to have reached the final four following a fairly disappointing group campaign. They won their opening game 1-0 against Ecuador thanks to Edwin Cardona's goal on the stroke of half time, meaning they were always in a strong position to qualify, but La Tricolor's next three games resulted in just one point, including a defeat to Saturday's opponents, seeing them fall to third place as a result. That saw them handed an unfavourable quarter-final clash with Uruguay, but Rueda's men stepped up to the challenge, taking La Celeste to a penalty shootout after a goalless draw, and they progressed as David Ospina denied Matias Vina after Duvan Zapata, Davinson Sanchez, Mina and Miguel Borja had all converted their spot kicks. La Tricolor again went the distance last time out against Argentina in the semi-final, as Luis Diaz levelled the game on the hour mark after Lautaro Martinez's early opener, but they would not prevail on that occasion as Emiliano Martinez denied Sanchez, Mina and Cardona from the spot to send La Albiceleste through to the final with a 3-2 win in the shootout. Having missed out on what would have been their second Copa America title, Rueda's men will now look to finish in a strong manner and secure third spot after an underwhelming start to the tournament.
