Betting tips and prediction

La Blanquirroja now have one final test before the World Cup. Spectacular performances over the years have seen Peru move up the FIFA World Rankings. They have lost just once in the last nine games. Winning six games and drawing two of those fixtures. The winner of this tie would be in the World Cup group D. Joining France, Tunisia and Denmark.

Based on current form, Ricardo Gareca's team are expected to win this tie. Peru have found the back of the net eight times in the last nine games. Scoring 14 goals during this run. They should easily outscore their opponents. Peru have pulled their weights in recent tournaments, reaching the Copa America final in 2019. Finishing as runners-up to eventual champions, Brazil.

Australia have failed to win in six of their last nine games. The Socceroos have not been good defensively. They have not kept a clean sheet in five consecutive games. Conceding seven goals in their last five outings. Los Incas have a better defence than the Aussies. Offensively, they are also the better team. The only meeting between these teams ended in a win for Peru.

In their last seven games, the Aussies have gotten four or more corners. With 35 corners in their last seven games. They are averaging five corners per game.
