The two-time defending Copa America champions, and one of the toughest teams in the world, Chile isn’t willing to let go of their domination over the South American continent that easily. They have entered the semi-finals after a drama against Colombia and are massive favourites against Peru. Meanwhile, the Peruvian side reached semi-finals for the first time since 2015, and they are hoping to make some sensation here. The chances for such a thing are not high, but they still exist. If they defeated Uruguay, why not Chile.

La Roja showcased their strength against Colombia. They held such a potent team to only one shot on goal, using their characteristic style of play which kills the tempo on the field, and slows down the pace as much as possible. It was the second game in this Copa America edition in which they kept a clean sheet. And like most of the times when there is an intense situation, this team came out as a winner. The magnitude of their mental strength was apparent during the penalty shootout. Neither of their five players missed his shot from the penalty spot. Chile is fired-up to do something rarely seen, and that is to win three straight Copa America tournaments.

Peru hasn’t scored in three out of four matches here in Brazil. In fact, they haven’t netted in six of the previous 10 meetings. And yet, these guys are in the semi-finals of Copa America. They too ended up here after a penalty shootout. Uruguay’s Luis Suarez missed the opening penalty, which was lethal for his team in the end. Peru didn’t amaze anyone with their performances so far. They had more luck than knowledge, and it is totally understandable why bookies see them as the underdogs — massive ones. After all, they do have just three wins in the previous 10 meetings.

Prediction

As for the first pick, we will go with low efficiency. There are several reasons for that choice, and all of them are more than logical for backing up this suggestion. First one is Chile’s style of play. As we already wrote, they play slow, hard, and dull football in situations like this one. Be sure that all the passages towards their goal will be closed. The second reason is Peru’s inability to score. They are simply bad upfront, and that is a fact. So, they too will be defending. Our pick is under 2.5 goals, with Ladbrokes offering odds at 1/2.

Chile is the absolute favourite; everybody knows that. But be sure that Rueda’s boys aren’t going to win with some high result. They would rather prefer to score once and then protect that lead. Which brings us to the next pick, and that is Chile to keep clean sheets. They already did it twice here, and Peru’s attack shouldn’t be too big of a problem for them. Bet365 has a nice offer for all the punters, which will more than double their money. The odds are 11/10.
