Australia vs Peru Preview and Predictions

On Tuesday, Peru and Australia go head-to-head in Group C of the World Cup, as the Socceroos look to make the knockout stages of the competition.

Australia needs to record a victory in this clash and hope that France defeat Denmark to make it to the knockout stages of the competition. Bert van Marwijk’s side’s goal difference is inferior to the Scandinavians.

Their recent results have been mixed in the international game. However, the Socceroos have won just two of their last six games. Australia’s recent matches have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their previous seven outings.

They have a poor record at the World Cup, winning just two of their 15 games at finals while winning only one of their last 11 matches. However, their games at the World Cuphave offered decent value for money, with over 2.5 goals scored in five of their previous six games.

Peru have already suffered elimination from the World Cup having lost both their group games at Russia 2018. The South American team have produced decent performances, but a failure to score in their games against France and Denmark at World Cup 2018 has cost them dearly. The lack of goals has contributed to four of their last five games producing under 2.5 goals.

Ricardo Gareca’s side headed into the World Cup on an unbeaten run of 15 games. This game represents a chance to get back to winning ways.

The South American outfit have a poor recent record at the finals, as they have failed to win in their last eight games while suffering six defeats in the process.

Australia will be desperate to record a victory to secure qualification. However, Peru will also be looking to win their final group game. Sportseconds predicts that the South American team will record a victory in a low scoring game.
