COL vs PER betting tips and prediction
It will be very hard to predict who the winner of this game will be as the competition will be fierce and neck to neck. Many people think that Colombia will easily win this game but that will not be the case as Peru are currently the better side of the two and they also can win this game. My prediction will be that Peru will win this game with a narrow margin.
