Copa America Odds

Team news

Peru captain Luis Advincula will be missing after suffering an achilles injury, although it is not as bad as initially feared.

Feyenoord's Marcos Lopez will be his likely replacement, Alex Callens was withdrawn late on last time out but that was due to cramp and he should start.

Canada are likely to field a similar team to the one that faced Argentina, although Jacob Shaffelburg impressed off the bench and could replace Liam Millar.

Peru vs Canada Match odds

Canada can be backed at 5/4 for the victory, while Peru are 21/10 outsiders and the draw is available at 2/1.

Over 2.5 goals is on offer at 5/4, while both teams to score is priced at Evs and it is 5/2 for over 1.5 goals in the first half.

Canada to win @ 5/4

Canada have been highly tried in recent weeks, facing the Netherlands, France and Argentina.

They should be able to enjoy a significant drop in class here when they take on Peru, who are rock bottom of the South American World Cup qualifiers after scoring just once in six games in that competition.

In fact, La Bicolor have only scored in four of their last 11 matches and are without their captain Luis Advincula through injury.

Peru’s decent recent run of form has come against the likes of Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic and Canada are a significant leap in class.

The Canucks gave a decent account of themselves in their 2-0 defeat to Argentina and it’s hard to see past them recording their first ever win in a Copa America clash against such a goal shy Peru side.

Jonathan David to score at any time @ 21/10

Jonathan David has been one of the most consistent goalscorers in European football in recent years and lived up to that billing again last season.

The Canadian striker netted 19 times in 30 Ligue 1 starts and has unsurprisingly been linked with a move to the Premier League.

He has 26 goals in 49 international appearances and is just three goals behind teammate Cyle Larin as the country’s record goalscorer.

David is fancied to get on the scoresheet against a Peru side that were beaten 2-0 by Bolivia recently.
