Peru won their first bet of the season when they secured their qualification to the World Cup after 36 years. They were tied with Chile but went through to the playoffs due to better goal difference. Peru will now face Denmark in their first match on Saturday, in what is considered as a pivotal match that will shape the group. Denmark have put together a really solid national team, with at least one good player in every line. They are the favorites to follow France to the next stage, but a loss here would destroy their chances. World Cup Peru vs Denmark Spread and Prediction.
Date/Time: 6-16-2018, 12:00 EDT
Spread: Peru +0.25
Total: 2.25 Goals
It has been a rollercoaster ride over the past months for Peru, with a lot of stuff happening regarding their national team. They managed to triumph in the CONMEBOL qualifying group when they finished at the 5th spot. Peru tied with Chile but moved on due to better goal difference. They had to play an inter-continental playoff against New Zealand, where after a goal-less draw on the road they won by 0-2 at home. Key forward Paolo Guerrero used illegal substances and was going to miss the World Cup. However, the decision was rescinded and he is now set to play. Besides Paolo Guerrerro, Jefferson Farfan is also one of their star players, and the two players will do the heavy lifting in the offense.
On the other hand, Denmark will also be coming to the World Cup for the fifth time, just like Peru. They had a rather easy job in the World Cup qualifiers, finishing 2nd spot of Group E (6-2-2). After that they played against Ireland in the playoffs, where after a goal-less draw at home, they destroyed them by 5-1 on the road. Their biggest asset is Tottenham’s midfielder Christian Eriksen. Moreover, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has some legendary blood flowing through his veins. In their recent friendlies, Denmark have only defeated Mexico and Panama (2-2-2).
Peru scored in nine of their last eleven matches but kept just a single clean sheet in that span. They will try to lock down their defense but containing Christian Eriksen will be key in this match.
In any case, both teams will approach this match with a lot of caution. These two might not be the flashiest of teams, but there is a good chance we will see goals from both sides here.
