Tuesday afternoon will see the second matchday of Copa America Group A commence as Peru will clash with Canada as both clubs look to punch their first win. This will be the third all-time encounter while in the head-to-head department, both sides registered a win apiece. Currently in the FIFA rankings Peru is sitting 31st overall while Canada is placed at 48th.

Peru is coming off a hard-fought cagey affair that saw them finish with a scoreless draw against their arch-nemesis Chile. In the Clásico del Pacífico Peru managed to log a total of seven shots with only four hitting the target. Peru lacked possession inside the 90 minutes only controlling the ball for 35 percent of the game.

Meanwhile, Canada displayed a courageous effort against the world’s best national team at this moment, losing 2-0 to Argentina. Canada had plentiful chances in the opening 45 minutes catching Argentina surprised. Ultimately Canada’s lack of finishing in the final third caught up to them and Argentina poured on the pressure stifling any hope for Les Rouges.

Peru vs. Canada Betting Prediction

Peru Preview

Despite being higher ranked than their counterpart the books have placed Peru as the underdog to capture all three points. In six CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying matches Peru remains winless but entering the 2024 Copa America La Bicolor since March 22nd are unbeaten in their last five. On the discipline side of soccer, Peru played with intensity as they committed 18 fouls, which currently stands as the third highest in the tournament.

Central midfielder Sergio Pena displayed a man-of-the-match performance on Saturday. The Malmo FF product in the Allsvenskan, Sweden’s top-tier league, played in all 90 minutes while creating two dangerous chances. Watch for Pena will dictate and control the middle of the pitch. In 39 international caps, Pena has inked his name on the scoresheet four times.

Canada Preview

One of the main reasons why Canada had a glimmer of hope to grab a result against Messi and Co was the outstanding spectacle goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau put on. He was the busier of two net-minders, with 19 shots directed towards him. The 30-year-old made six saves half of them were highlight reel material, proving to be one of Canada’s best players on the pitch last Thursday. Before Canada’s 2-0 setback, Crepeau picked up two straight clean sheets for his nation.

Canada, as stated above, lacks that final finish which is holding this team back from being dark horse contenders in the tournament. Canada’s most notable forward upfront is Jonathan David. The club player with Lille has failed to find the back of the net in the last five outings with Canada. The team will only go so far if David can mandate his play in the 18-yard box.

Peru vs. Canada - My Pick

The fans attending the match at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City way witness a low-scoring event. 22 of the last 25 matches Peru has participated in have seen the under 2.5 hit. Since Canada appointed Jesse Marsch as the new bench boss, The Reds have failed to register a goal. Think that Peru’s stingy defense and Canada’s lack of ability to breach one past the keeper facing a quality side will lead to a low-scoring matchup.
