Peru’s 1-0 victory over Costa Rica midweek extended a fledgling run of three friendly fixtures where each ended with under 2.5 goals and just one team finding the net (W2, L1). It could be same again here as they take on Colombia, considering each of the last 11 H2Hs have featured under 2.5 match goals, and only four of those 11 saw both teams score.
Whilst Peru have won just three times since the 2018 World Cup finals (W3, D1, L5), when they do emerge victorious they usually do so in style – eight of their last nine wins have been ‘to nil’, with seven of those nine coming via a two-goal margin or larger.
However, here they face a Colombia side that’s excelled in recent friendly fixtures, losing just one of their last 11 (W7, D3, L1), whilst netting an average of 1.91 goals per match. Furthermore, in contrast to Peru’s recent games, four of Colombia’s last five friendlies finished with over 2.5 goals.
In fact, with seven first-half goals across those previous five friendly games (W4, L1), don’t expect this game to start slowly, although Colombia were winning at half-time in just two of those matches (W2, D2, L1).
Players to watch: Edison Flores was Peru’s first goalscorer in five of the last six international games he’s netted in.
Falcao has scored in five of Colombia’s last six friendly wins – his last two international goals came from the penalty spot.
Stat attack: Peru’s last five defeats have seen them concede after the 70th minute.
Colombia scored three or more goals in five of their last seven friendly victories.
Three of the last four H2Hs featured a goal after the 75th minute.
