Colombia vs Peru takes place in a World Cup 2014 qualifier on Tuesday night, with both teams looking to respond to the increasing pressure as the qualifying campaign moves towards its climax. Tonight's match kicks off at 4.30 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Colombia currently lies second in the South American qualifying positions after their important away draw to Argentina last week. They will realize that if they get anything other than a home win tonight against Peru then it will completely undermine the good work they achieved last week.
Expect Colombia to come out fiercely and with intensity as they look to build on last week's good result and claim maximum points tonight.
The Colombia team has been efficient both in attack and defense and is currently the second highest scoring team of the nine nations in their qualifying group. Defensively they have also only conceded seven goals in their 11 games to date, which is the most efficient out of all the teams they are competing against.
Their home record is enough to frighten Peru too – they have won their last three games by a cumulative score of 11-0. Peru will also remember losing to Colombia in the fall 1-0 in Lima.
Peru meanwhile are coming into this game off the back of a solid 1-0 win against Ecuador on Friday. But Peru are yet to win on the road in this qualifying campaign and are amazingly winless in their last 20 away qualifiers. They must change that record – preferably starting today – if they are to move up the table.
