Chile probably can’t believe their luck. Beat Peru to reach the Copa America final, having avoided the same half of the draw as big guns Brazil, Argentina and Colombia.

La Roja needed a late Isla goal to see off a defensive and dogged Uruguay team, with the hosts now ninety minutes away from reaching the final where they would face either Argentina or Paraguay.

Jorge Sampaoli will urge his team to be patient against the surprise package of the tournament, with Peru only narrowly losing to Brazil in their opening group game before beating Venezuela and then drawing with Colombia to book their passage in the last eight.

The Incas then beat Bolivia thanks to a Paolo Guerrero hat-trick and there’s plenty to like about this team with little to lose as they prepare for one of the biggest games in their nation’s history.

Bayern Munich’s Claudio Pizarro leads the line and the team, while Jefferson Farfan is a class midfielder who has shone in the Bundesliga over the past few seasons and can help Peru to cause problems of their own.

In short, we’re looking at an entertaining match between two sides who will be roving forward for goals, although Chile might just have the firepower to get over the line in this game.

A 3-3 draw with Mexico at the group stage indicates that the Chilean defence could be vulnerable and we’re happy to have a small bet on the Peruvians on the handicap as this could easily go to extra-time and penalties.
