Colombia vs Peru build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

A first Copa America final appearance since 2001 eluded Colombia as they lost 3-2 on penalties against Argentina with both centre-backs Davinson Sánchez and Yerry Mina missing from the spot. Los Cafeteros’ tournament started tamely, Reinaldo Rueda’s men won just one of their four group matches before eliminating Uruguay in the quarter-finals on penalties. But they couldn’t repeat the trick in the following round. However, they can still finish third, which is something Colombia has achieved on four previous occasions.

As for Los Incas they put up a much better fight against the defending champions. Earlier in the group phase Brazil humbled them 4-0 but Ricardo Gareca’s last time out fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat. It means their wait to win a first Copa America since 1975 goes on. To say they’ve come close in recent years would be an understatement. Across the last four editions, including this current tournament, Peru have finished third twice and were runners-up in the last championship two years ago.

Player to watch: André Carrillo (Peru)

There’s no question Peru missed forward André Carrillo in their Copa America semi-final meeting with Brazil, the 30-year-old was suspended as The Incas fell to a 1-0 loss, and he will be desperate to make up for lost time. In the three games preceding the showdown against Tite’s men Carrillo registered two goals whilst creating a further two. His effort against Ecuador in the group phase ended a six-game scoring drought and with him back in the fold manager Ricardo Gareca is undoubtedly going to look to him to inspire Peru as they seek a third bronze medal finish across five Copa America tournament appearances.
