Outsiders in with a chance of making final four
Nobody expected Bolivia or Peru to win the competition outright but the pair have been handed a good chance to at least progress to the semi-finals.
The outsiders face-off in Temuco and both will fancy their chances of making their country proud with a high-profile semi-final date against one of South America’s big guns.
Peru have been dealt a blow with captain Carlos Lobaton and fellow midfielder Josepmir Ballon suspended for the match but last season’s semi-finalists should still have enough in the tank to progress to another last-four date. Victory for Los Incas offers odds of 5/6.
Bolivia’s defence should help after they conceded five last time out against Chile and have let in more goals than any other team in the tournament so far with seven. For Peru to score in both halves you can get odds of 5/2.
Ricardo Gareca’s men have also kept two clean sheets in their last two matches, including a stalemate against the quality-packed squad of Colombia last time out. To make it three on the spin offers 19/20.
Former Chelsea man Claudio Pizarro scored the crucial goal in Peru’s 1-0 victory over Venezuela and the team captain is 2/1 favourite to score first on Friday night. Schalke forward Jefferson Farfan is a good alternative at 21/10.
The match kicks off at 12.30am on Friday, June 26th, at the Estadio Municipal Germán Becker, Temuco.
