Venezuela vs Peru build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Venezuela have not had the best time at Copa America, playing their opening matches with a reduced squad, but they go into their final game still in with a chance of reaching the quarter-finals. They recovered from a 3-0 defeat to Brazil to draw their next two games, holding Colombia and Ecuador, the latter coming via a late Ronald Hernandez equaliser. Venezuela remain bottom of the group but are behind Ecuador (who face Brazil) on goal difference, so a draw may be enough if Ecuador as is expected. A win, however, would guarantee Venezuela finish above Peru and go through.
Peru, meanwhile, only need a draw from this game to secure their spot in the quarter-finals after their decent start to the tournament. La Blanquirroja also had to come back from a heavy defeat at the hands of Brazil (4-0 in their opening match) but they did so by beating Colombia and drawing with Ecuador. The latter saw Peru come from two goals down to earn a point, all-but ensuring their Copa America continues barring defeat here and a shock Ecuador win.
- Venezuela (vs Ecuador): Farinez; Gonzalez, Del Pino Mago, A Martinez, Velazquez, Cumana; J Martinez, Moreno, Castillo, Casseres Jr; Aristeguieta.
- Peru (vs Ecuador): Gallese; Corzo, Ramos*, Callens, Trauco; Yotun, Tapia; Carrillo, Pena, Cueva; Lapadula.
Christian Ramos is suspended for Peru after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament against Ecuador, but Venezuela have no new concerns.
Player to watch: Gianluca Lapadula (Peru)
Peru were not good in the first half of their game against Ecuador and it was no surprise to see them 2-0 down at the break. But then something changed in them, and Gianluca Ladapula inspired Peru to come back.
The 31-year-old only made his debut for Peru in November 2020, having previously represented Italy’s B side before making the switch, eligible through his Peruvian mother. Lapadula had a tough start to live as a Peruvian, failing to score in any of his first six matches, although he did recorded two assists in Peru’s 2-1 win over Ecuador in World Cup qualifying.
And Ecuador felt his wrath again in the Copa America, with Lapadula scoring Peru’s first goal five minutes after half-time and setting up Andre Carillo for the equaliser moments later. If Lapadula can use that performance to build momentum, Peru should have no problems securing qualification to the quarter-finals.
