Peru is in second place in the group, with one point and a neutral goal difference. Canada is in fourth place, without points and a two-goal deficit. Both teams aim for a win to improve their standings and advance in the tournament. Bookmakers give Canada a slight advantage, but the match is expected to be closely contested.

Peru – Form

Peru has shown solid form at home, with their latest match against Chile ending in a 0-0 draw on June 22, 2024. They previously beat El Salvador 1-0 in a friendly, continuing El Salvador’s winless streak. A draw with Paraguay earlier in the month ended Peru’s series of friendly wins against them. The outcomes of these three games matched bookmakers’ predictions.

Canada – Form

Canada’s recent performance has been inconsistent. They lost 2-0 to Argentina in their last Copa America match on June 21, 2024. Before that, they secured a surprising 0-0 draw with France in a friendly. However, they suffered a 4-0 defeat to the Netherlands on June 6. This result ended their streak of scoring in away games.

Peru – Canada – Head to Head

The teams last met on September 4, 2010, with Peru winning 2-0 in a friendly. They have faced each other only once in the past decade, with Peru winning that encounter. This upcoming match at Children’s Mercy Park adds an element of unpredictability to their historical stats.

Peru vs Canada – Over/Under Betting

The “Over 2.5” goals odds are at 2.375, while “Under 2.5” goals is at 1.571. Peru’s solid defense and Canada’s scoring difficulties suggest a low-scoring game. However, Peru’s home advantage and undefeated streak could lead to goals. The H2H record shows a Peru win with 2 goals. “Under 2.5” goals is likely, but “Over 2.5” goals offers higher odds.

Peru vs Canada – BTTS Betting

The odds for “BTTS: Yes” are at 2.00. The last match between these teams ended with only Peru scoring. Peru’s recent matches and Canada’s scoring challenges suggest “BTTS: No” at 1.75 is more likely. This makes it a safer bet for this match.
