Colombia vs Peru Team News:
There will be a lot of familiar faces in Colombia’s starting XI against the United States, with Juan Cuadrado, Davinson Sanchez, James Rodriguez, Luis Diaz, and Radamel Falcao all expected to make their cut. Diaz is having an excellent season for Porto, which has prompted speculation of a move to the Premier League. The 25-year-old is anticipated to play in a left-sided midfield position, with Falcao and Miguel Borja possibly lining up in the final third of the field.
Rueda must make a selection in the centre midfield, where he has a variety of possibilities. However, Wilmar Barrios, who has played with Gustavo Cuellar in the past, might end up being the final choice.
When it comes to Peru, the starting XI is likely to be quite similar to the one that took the field for the opening whistle against Venezuela in their last qualifying match back in November. Gianluca Lapadula is expected to start in a 4-5-1 formation, with the 31-year-old hoping to add to his five international goals. Yoshimar Yotun and Christian Cueva are expected to form a veteran midfield with Lapadula.
Goalkeeper Pedro Gallese will lead the side once again, while full-backs Luis Advincula and Miguel Trauco are expected to line up in the full-back positions for the visitors.

The One-Liner Explainer:
Peru will be confident of obtaining a favourable outcome in this match given their previous results, but it will be tough to choose a winner versus Colombia in this battle. The host team has had their share of problems in the section, but they should have enough talent to earn all three points when they return to qualifying action.
