Peru vs Colombia: Storylines
Though it would be a hard game, La Tricolor have a good record against Peru in Lima. Of ten games played, Peru has only been able to win one, tied five and was defeated four times. The only time they beat Colombia in Lima for the Qualifiers was in 1981.
The last time they played was in an International Friendly in 2019. In that game, Colombia got the victory thanks to the only goal of Alfredo Morelos, who won’t be in this fixture due to a Covid-19 positive.
But he is not the only casualty for the visitors. They also won’t count with Juan Fernando Quintero y James Rodríguez. Quintero couldn’t join the team due to the travel restrictions in China and Rodríguez wasn’t called due to his doubtful physical state.
