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.
