Peru vs Colombia Betting Tips & Predictions
It’s time to decide who will win bronze at Copa America 2021, and we will see Colombia and Peru clash in the hunt for a medal. Both teams have previously won the South American championship, Colombia in 2001 and Peru in 1939 and 1975. This time around a third place finish will have to do, since both teams fell to the big favourites, Argentina and Brazil, in their respective semi-finals.
Ahead of the tournament we had a betting tip for Colombia as winner of it all, but that was before they got stripped of hosting Copa America 2021. With the home advantage gone the odds rose a fair bit for the Colombians, but Reinaldo Rueda and his men were close to reaching the final despite that. In their semi-final against Argentina they pushed the match all the way to penalties, but there they fell short.
Peru put up a fight in their semi-final against Brazil as well, and the 0-1 loss is certainly nothing to be ashamed of. After the losses both teams now have a chance to leave Copa America with a medal around their necks, but who will gather energy and step up to the plate?
A quick look at the betting odds provided by the bookmakers tells us that Colombia are quite clear favourites. A bet for Colombia to end 3rd in the tournament lands at odds of 1.40, while Peru reaches upwards of 3.00.
Betting Tips: Over 2.5 Goals for odds 2.10+
In the second last match of Copa America 2021 we have decided to go against the grain and statistics. The reason is that we are talking about a bronze match, which usually means that nerves and tension is usually gone, and the fear of losing is not as big anymore. Generally bronze matches in Copa America offer quite a few goals, and 7 out of the 8 last have actually beat the line.
This gives us good hope that Colombia vs Peru can produce quite a few goals. When the teams met in the group stage it ended 2-1, and odds of 2.10+ definitely feel like a great option here.
