Peru vs Paraguay live streaming: Preview
Now that the group stages are over, the 47th Copa América really starts to heat up.
Peru were one of the teams who impressed most during the group phase.
La Blanquirroja were hammered 4-0 by Brazil in their opener but went on to amass seven points, beating Colombia, drawing with Ecuador and then overcoming Venezuela.
In the latter, veteran forward André Carrillo got the only goal in Brasília.
This helped them finish second in Group B, earning them this, potentially, favourable knockout stage draw.
The last couple of years have been incredibly successful for Peru.
In 2017, they qualified for a first World Cup in 36 years, beating New Zealand 2-0 in the Inter-confederation play-offs.
Then, two summers ago, they reached the Copa América Final, eventually losing to Brazil, but that was their best performance in the competition for 44 years.
Since though, Ricardo Gareca’s side have endured a terrible start to Qatar 2022 qualifying which leaves them bottom of the table with just four points after six fixtures.
Thus, the pressure was mounting on Gareca who could really do with success at this tournament.
Will Peru progress to the Copa América semi-finals?
Will Paraguay spring a surprise?
Paraguay meanwhile will also be optimistic of their chances of advancing.
Los Guaraníes’ started this competition with victory on matchday one, coming from 3-1 down to beat Group A’s whipping boys Bolivia.
Kaku equalising before Ángel Romero bagged a brace.
Since, they’ve lost 1-0 to Argentina and Uruguay but have also beaten Chile 2-0.
Braian Samudio heading home from a corner before Miguel Almirón slotted home a penalty in a surprise win over the 2015 and 2016 winners.
This helped Eduardo Berizzo’s side to a third-place finish in Group A, a stronger performance than many would’ve anticipated.
Paraguay qualified for four successive World Cups, between 1998 and 2010, but have been a fading force since, winning just 11 of their last 35 qualification matches.
At Copa América, la Albirroja went out in the group phase of the Centenario edition before, in 2019, reaching the quarter-finals despite not winning a game.
Paraguay are, undoubtedly, one of the weakest teams left in the competition but, in knockout football, anything is possible.
The winners of this tie will play either defending champions Brazil or Chile in the semi-finals on Monday night in Rio de Janeiro.
Who will come through this tie at Estádio Olímpico Pedro Ludovico?
Prediction: Peru 2-1 Paraguay
These two last met in October 2020 in World Cup Qualifying.
It finished 2-2 at Estadio Defensores del Chaco with both Ángel Romero and André Carrillo bagging braces.
Before this, Peru had won their last six meetings with Paraguay including in the 2015 Copa América Third place play-off.
