Colombia and Peru face off on Friday, July 9 at 8 p.m. ET in the 2021 Copa América third-place match. The match will air on FS1 and take place in Mané Garrincha Stadium in Brasilia. Colombia is a -225 favorite to win the match (including extra time/penalties) at DraftKings Sportsbook, while Peru is a +175 underdog.

After being stunned by a late equalizer from Paraguay, Peru recovered to eventually win in penalties 4-3. Peru then ran into Brazil in the semifinal, but had the additional setback of playing without star Andre Carrillo. The hosts won 1-0 to advance to the final.

Colombia won a penalty shootout 4-2 against Uruguay after blanking La Celeste’s fearsome attacking duo of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani. It then fought back against Argentina after going down 1-0 to force another penalty shootout. This time, Colombia lost 3-2 and will now meet Peru in the third place game.

Colombia vs. Peru

Colombia: -117 (to win any time -225)
Tie: +250
Peru: +340 (to win any time +175)
Total goals: 2.5 (Over +106, Under -132)

Regular time ML pick: Colombia (-117)
Team to advance pick: Colombia (-225)
Best bet: Both teams to score (No, -115)

Colombia has stifled two strong attacking teams to one total goal in the last two matches, including extra times. Peru gets Carrillo back, but that’s not enough to break down what is turning out to be a stellar back line. Expect another brilliant performance from Colombia’s defense against Peru’s average attack, meaning a shutout is on the table.
