Colombia ties its illusion to the fragility of its next rivals

The Colombia selection does not depend on herself to go to World Cup in Qatar 2022. After the falls in this double day of the South American Qualifiers versus Peruin Barranquilla, and as a visitor before Argentinathe classification was complicated.

Those led by Reinaldo Rueda, who started the double date as fourth, finished seventh with 17 points. This, after completing seven games without adding three and without scoring a single goal.

Chile finished ahead of Colombia (19 points), which beat Bolivia in La Paz; Peru (21 points), which equalized with Ecuador (25 points), a team that has one foot in the World Cup; and Uruguay (22 points), which thrashed Venezuela.

With this panorama, the Tricolor clings to the illusion that in the last days it will face two already eliminated teams: Bolivia, in Barranquilla, and Venezuela, as a local. He has no choice, he must win both commitments yes or yes and wait for the results to be given.

Colombia looks at the playoff, that’s what he points to. He knows that in the next day Uruguay and Peru will lose points when they face each other, but he needs a Uruguayan victory to be one of the Incas. In addition, it is convenient for him that Chile falls during his visit to Brazil to surpass him in the table.

Already on the last day, it only helps that Peru does not add three against Paraguay to stay with fifth place and not depend on what happens between La Roja and those led by Diego Alonso.
