Peru vs Canada Predictions


Both nations have struggled to hit the target in recent outings, so a low-scoring contest seems likely on Tuesday. 

I'm taking a chance on less than three goals scored at Children's Mercy Park.

  • Peru have seen under 2.5 goals in 15 of their last 17 matches
  • Peru failed to score in 2 of their last 3 matches
  • Canada have seen under 2.5 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches
  • Canada failed to score in their last 3 matches

Head to Head


Peru and Canada meet for only the second time on Tuesday. Peru eased to a 2-0 friendly victory in their only previous encounter in 2010. 

Peru Form


Peru kicked off their Copa America campaign with a hard-fought goalless draw against Chile over the weekend. In a game of few chances, Miguel Araujo spurned Peru's best opportunity to claim a vital victory in Texas.

Juan Reynoso's side are now unbeaten in six matches with clean sheets kept in four of their last five international fixtures. 

While in decent form this year, Peru have failed to win any of their last eight competitive matches since March 2022. 

Peru Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Pedro Gallese, Carlos Cáceda, Diego Romero
Defenders: Luis Advíncula, Carlos Zambrano, Aldo Corzo, Alexander Callens, Luis Abram, Marcos López, Miguel Araujo, Anderson Santamaría, Oliver Sonne
Midfielders: Christian Cueva, Sergio Peña, Wilder Cartagena, Jesús Castillo, Piero Quispe
Forwards: Paolo Guerrero, André Carrillo, Edison Flores, Andy Polo, Gianluca Lapadula, Bryan Reyna, Joao Grimaldo, Franco Zanelatto, José Rivera

Peruvian boss Reynoso will be forced into at least one alteration to his selection on Tuesday. Luis Advincula was forced off with what looked like a serious injury in Peru's goalless draw against Chile. Marcos Lopez is expected to deputise.

Veteran forward Paulo Guerrero will lead the attack as he searches for a record-equalling 15th goal at the Copa America finals. 

Canada Form


Canada's maiden appearance at the Copa America began with a frustrating 2-0 defeat against defending champions Argentina last Thursday. Goals from Julian Alvarez and Lautaro Matinez punished Jesse Marsch's side for their profligacy in front of goal. 

The Canucks are now winless in nine of their last 12 matches following last week's defeat against the Argentines.

A tough year has seen Canada fail to win six of their last nine competitive fixtures. 

Canada Squad & Team News


Goalkeepers: Dayne St. Clair, Maxime Crépeau, Tom McGill
Defenders: Alistair Johnston, Luc de Fougerolles, Kamal Miller, Joel Waterman, Derek Cornelius, Moïse Bombito, Alphonso Davies (captain), Richie Laryea, Ali Ahmed, Kyle Hiebert
Midfielders: Samuel Piette, Stephen Eustáquio (vice-captain), Ismaël Koné, Jonathan Osorio, Mathieu Choinière
Forwards: Cyle Larin, Jonathan David, Theo Bair, Jacen Russell-Rowe, Jacob Shaffelburg, Tajon Buchanan, Liam Millar, Tani Oluwaseyi

Head coach Marsch has no new injury issues ahead of Tuesday's contest in Kansas. Jacob Everett Shaffelburg is pushing for a recall to the first XI after he replaced Tajon Buchanan in Thursday's defeat in Texas. 

Verdict

Neither nation looked entirely convincing in their Copa America openers, so a tight contest seems likely on Tuesday.

While I can't pick a winner, I do expect less than three goals scored in Kansas.
