Peru Preview, Predictions, Players and Stats

Peru is back at the World Cup for the first time since 1982 and looks like they are in fine fettle. They can take all three points against Australia and Denmark and it will be their main objective for this tournament. Here's everything you need to know about the team:

France are absolute favourites to take top spot in the Group C, and Peru will fight for the second place in group with Denmark. Peru qualified for the tournament after finishing fifth in CONMEBOL qualifying and eliminating New Zealand in the intercontinental playoffs. They like to play strong and aggressive football in defending and for sure they will have problems with yellows. Peru reached the playoffs after leaving highly-rated Chile in the dust and this is not a team to underestimate.

Peru Prediction and Expectations on World Cup 2018

The Peruvians have a pretty good chances to go through in the Group C, but they need to beat Australia and pick up at least one point against Denmark. Match with Denmark will be a key battle for them on World Cup 2018. But right question is can Peru go through without their best player?
