First time

The first half was marked by an intense physical contest and many fouls, resulting in a truncated game with few clear scoring opportunities, with many passing errors and many interruptions, without either team being able to impose their game in a decisive manner.

Early on, Advíncula tried an offensive play, but was caught offside. The match continued with a series of fouls committed by players on both sides, including Sergio Peña, Marcelino Núñez, Andy Polo, Dávila and Vargas, which constantly interrupted the flow of the game.

In the 15th minute, Chile had the best chance of the first half when Alexis Sánchez received a low cross in the area, but finished over Gallese's goal, wasting the opportunity. The game continued with more fouls and yellow cards for Zambrano and Erick Pulgar, reflecting the fierce nature of the confrontation.

Chile continued to press, with Dávila attempting a shot blocked by the Peruvian defense and Sánchez missing the target again with another attempt. Peru also had its moments, but faced difficulties in maintaining possession of the ball and building offensive plays. In the 33rd minute, a substitution was made by the Peruvian coach, with Marcos López replacing Advíncula on the left flank.


In the final minutes of the first half, Peru created a significant chance. Miguel Araujo headed the ball on target, but Chilean goalkeeper Bravo made a safe save. In short, the first 45 minutes were full of competition and few dangerous moves, with Chile taking the initiative and Peru trying to resist and create their opportunities. In the 47th minute, Lichnovsky and Zambrano needed treatment on the field after a head collision in the attacking field.

Second time

At the stage, the game appeared to be disputed, but with few clear chances of scoring. After just 2 minutes, Dávila received a yellow card after a strong tackle on Lapadula, demonstrating the intensity with which the teams started the match.

In Chile, Valdés was replaced by Osorio at halftime, a change confirmed in the 6th minute. Shortly after, in the 10th minute, Lapadula had the first clear opportunity for Peru, but his weak shot was easily saved by Bravo. Gallese also shone in the 14th minute, holding off a shot from Núñez, who had received a precise pass and tried to open the scoring.


The Chilean coach made new changes in the 18th minute, with Brereton and Bolados replacing Dávila and Vargas. The team sought to increase the pressure, but in the 21st minute, Peña sent a dangerous ball to the left of the goal, showing that Peru was also attentive to attacking opportunities.

Peru also changed the team in the 25th minute, with Grimaldo and Guerrero replacing Flores and Quispe. Even with the substitutions, the game remained truncated and with few chances, as evidenced in the 29th minute, where both teams showed difficulties in creating.
