Colombia vs Peru: Storylines and Head-to-Head
Colombia haven't performed well in this Copa America so far, yet they were really close to sealing a place in the final. Reinaldo Rueda's team has failed to win since Matchday 1 and in both knockout stage games went to penalties. This will be Los Cafeteros' first appearance in this kind of game since the Copa America Centenario edition in which they beat the USMNT to finish third.
Peru, on the other hand, have overcome a difficult beginning to their campaign and made their way to their fourth semi-final in the last five tournaments. Gareca's men arrived at this competition as runners-up from 2019, and they have previously claimed bronze in 2011 and 2015. They were beaten by reigning champs Brazil in the semis, but Peru hope to finish their participation strongly.
This will be the 19th meeting between these two sides in Copa America. Peru hold nine victories, while Colombia won just twice, and they've tied in seven matches. They have also met in this edition's group stage, with La Blanquirroja winning 2-1.
