Colombia will be looking for an instant bounce back from their goalless draw against Venezuela on Thursday night. Reinaldo Rueda’s men currently sit second in their group with Brazil occupying the top spot, however, Los Cafeteros will face a Peru side slumped rock bottom of the group – albeit having only played one game.
Peru tasted a hefty defeat in the opening game of their Copa America adventure. Although they shipped in four goals on the night, Ricardo Gareca’s men should not have their hopes dampened as it did come away with the favourites to win the tournament, Brazil. But Sunday’s game is not expected to provide them much on an easier ride against a Colombia side who are yet to concede.
Monday’s hosts will be without Luis Diaz after the midfielder was shown a straight red card in the draw against Venezuela on Thursday, despite only coming on as a substitute. The Colombians come into the game as heavy favourites to seal the three points and their recent record against Peru would suggest why.

Colombia are yet to concede a goal in their opening two games of the Copa America. A 1-0 victory over Ecuador was followed up by a 0-0 draw against Venezuela on Thursday evening. In the previous 10 meetings between these two sides, Colombia have not lost a single game and have only conceded two goals.
The Colombian’s have only scored on one occasion in Copa America so far, however, they have an incredible goalscoring record against Peru. In just the last three games between these two nations, Colombia have found the back of the net on seven occasions. Their last meeting was earlier this month in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers which saw Colombia triumph in a 3-0 victory.
