Peru have a third straight win in their sights when they travel to the EstadioMetropolitanoRoberto Melendez in Barranquilla to take on hosts Colombia in a World Cup 2022 qualifier from the South American section. The Peruvians have won their last two World Cup 2022 qualifiers ahead of the meeting with Colombia next month and that run of back-to-back wins has propelled them to fifth spot on the standings. Fifth spot would be good enough for an inter-confederation playoffs.

The Peruvians have won all their two World Cup 2022 qualifiers since Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez scored in the first half to give Argentina a 1-0 home win over Peru. Since the narrow defeat to the two-time world champions, the Peruvians have beaten Bolivia and Venezuela.
