Peru vs Chile will be the second game in Group A in Copa America 2024 and will take place at the AT&T Stadium in Texas as both teams will be eager to get off the mark with a win.

La Blanquirroja will enter this game on the back of a strong run of form. They are unbeaten in their last five games across competitions, securing three wins and two draws. In that span, they have scored eight goals and have conceded just twice, keeping three clean sheets in the process. With a major tournament coming up, they will hope their positive preparations can reflect in their performances.

La Roja, on the other hand, will enter this contest on the back of a mixed run of form. They have won two, lost two and drawn one of their last five games across competitions. In that run, the Chileans scored eight goals and conceded three as they just need to show more fight in some games. They also kept three clean sheets in the process but will have to step things up against Peru.

With that said, let’s take a look at the team news.

Manager Jorge Fossati took the opportunity to experiment with his team over the last couple of months. However, the results did not suffer one bit, reflecting on the overall quality of the squad at the moment. Fossati has maintained the same core while rotating players around them.

Pedro Gallese is the first-choice goalkeeper, with Miguel Araujo and Carlos Zambrano in defense ahead of him. Skipper Luis Advíncula will join young prodigy Piero Quispe and Wilder Cartagena in midfield, while Gianluca Lapadula and Edison Flores will lead the line.

Key Players to Watch

  • Piero Quispe (Peru) – The 22-year-old midfielder seems to have a bright future ahead of him, as shown in matches for his country, as well as his club Pumas, for whom he has impressed since joining in January this year. With consistently impressive performances since April, Quispe will be a crucial cog in his team’s wheel.
  • Alexis Sánchez (Chile) – The former Arsenal man will look to put his best performance in what could be his final time representing his country at a major tournament. Alexis has been one of Chile’s all-time greats. He has scored 51 goals and bagged 41 assists in 163 games for his country. Having won the Copa America previously in 2015 and 2016, Sánchez will look to lead his country to glory once again.

Peru vs Chile Head-to-Head Record

These two nations have faced off pretty often in the last few years, with recent results producing an interesting pattern. Chile have won two of their last five meetings, while Peru have walked away with wins in the other three. What’s very interesting to note is that the losing team did not score in any of these five games.

Last 5 Games

  • Chile 2-0 Peru [10/23]
  • Peru 2-0 Chile [10/21]
  • Chile 2-0 Peru [11/20]
  • Chile 0-3 Peru [07/19]
  • Peru 3-0 Chile [10/18]


If recent history is anything to go by, the winner of this game will win without conceding! However, football does not work that way, especially in major tournaments where the pressure changes the complexion of games. However, Chile seem to have the better personnel and look more well-oiled as a unit and should sneak a win.
