Peru and Chile Draw 0-0 in Copa América 2024 Opener

Peru and Chile tied 0-0 this Friday at the AT&T Stadium in Texas, within the framework of the first date of group A of the Copa América 2024. The team led by Ricardo Gareca, the next rival of the Argentine National Team after its auspicious debut against to Canada, showed something more against its classic Pacific rival, but both agreed on the lack of offensive power.

La Roja tried to take center stage in the first half, although it lacked the options to turn its dominance into a siege. Alexis Sánchez wasted the first by defining high from the heart of the area and later, after the muscle injury that took Luis Advíncula out of Peru and set off alarms in La Boca, Claudio Bravo controlled a dangerous header from Miguel Araujo.

In the complement Jorge Fossati’s men grew but their merit was not the danger at the top but rather shattering the previous good performance of Tigre’s men. Likewise, the Incas created the clearest one with Bravo trying hard against Gianluca Lapadula and after the rebound against the onslaught of the endlessly admitted Paolo Guerrero.

Little by little falling in love with the tie, the distribution of points crystallized in the final between two teams that aim to get into the top two in an area in which the world champion is a clear favorite. We will have to see how the story continues.
