Peru vs Chile, last minute

Peru and Chile face each other in their debut for the 2024 Copa América, with Jorge Fossati leading the Bicolor and Ricardo Gareca leading the La Roja. If you want to know all the details of the match and follow the latest news, you have come to the right place.

The Peruvian team arrives at the Copa América with the awakening of a recent nightmare: the unfortunate passage of Juan Reynoso. In the United States he aspires to wash his face with Jorge Fossati on the bench.

The Uruguayan coach will make his debut in the Copa América, since until now he has led friendlies without much demand with Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Paraguay and El Salvador.

Peru goes to the Copa América with good memories of previous competitions, as it has lifted the trophy twice, in 1939 and 1975, in addition to being runner-up in 2019.

In 2011 and 2015 it was in third place and in 2021 it was fourth after finishing second in group B, only behind Brazil.

Chile lands in the United States, where it won the two-time Copa América championship in 2016 with a ‘Golden Generation’ of which four leaders remain, immersed in a new cycle with coach Ricardo Gareca who will assemble his renewed team there for the World Cup. 2026.

For the Argentine coach, a good Copa América is equivalent to “advancing to the next phase”, that is, surpassing Group A in which Argentina, Peru and Canada are located. From there, “it will depend on the rival” they meet.

In the 2021 edition, La Roja advanced to the quarterfinals and lost to local Brazil 1-0, after having qualified fourth in Group A with a single win against Bolivia, two draws with Argentina and Uruguay, and a defeat with Paraguay, very far from the performance that led it to its first title in 2015.

Although Peru also played in the 2019 Copa América final with Brazil, it is last in the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers with four losses and two draws.

As if that were not enough, in six games he scored only one goal. Very far from the good football and the good collective feelings that he left in eight years with the Argentine Ricardo Gareca, today Chile’s coach.

Precisely, their neighbors to the south will be the rivals in the first match of the Copa América, a reunion with a lot of morbidity after the signing of the only man who has managed to unify the Andean country in recent years, and whose arrival in Santiago raised sighs and reproaches Peruvians.

Since his arrival last January, Gareca made it clear that the priority is to right the course in the Qualifiers, where Chile is outside the classification positions after six of the eighteen rounds.

La Roja remained in 2023, under the direction of Eduardo Berizzo, in eighth place with five points from a victory over Peru (2-0), two goalless draws with Colombia and Paraguay, and three defeats against Uruguay (3-1 ), Venezuela (3-0) and Ecuador (1-0).
