Peru vs Denmark match stats

  • Denmark are unbeaten in nine competitive games
  • Peru went unbeaten in 12 of their 18 South American qualifying games
  • Both sides qualified for the World Cup via a play-off victory

Peru vs Denmark betting preview

Peru qualified for the World Cup via their strong finish to the South American qualification process, losing just one of their final eight games - with that defeat coming against winners Brazil - which should give them confidence coming into Russia 2018. Then beating New Zealand in their play-off game, Peru will now feature at the World Cup finals for the first time since 1982.

Coach Ricardo Gareca has done a fabulous job with the selection of players available to him, extracting the absolute maximum out of each and every squad player throughout the previous two years or so. They will know just how important this game is to their hopes of progressing from the group and a defeat would leave them with a huge uphill battle to get out of the group stages.

Denmark, too, will know just how vital this game is to their hopes of progressing too, as they look to leave themselves in a strong position before they are made to face France in the final game of the group stages. Given the quality available to them, Denmark will be expecting to pick up three points in this contest and make a positive start before facing Australia in the second group game.

Unbeaten in nine competitive games, Age Hareide’s team have been in great form in recent outings and secured their place at the World Cup thanks to a 5-1 win away to Republic of Ireland in their play-off. Talismanic midfielder Christian Eriksen scored a hat-trick in that game and all eyes will be on him as he looks to build on an excellent domestic season for Tottenham Hotspur.

Peru vs Denmark predictions

Denmark should have too much quality in their ranks for Peru in this meeting, with the South Americans relying heavily on their home form to qualify for the World Cup. Denmark win can be backed at 21/20 with Betstars.

Christian Eriksen scored a hat-trick in his last competitive outing for his country and will be head and shoulders the best player on the pitch here. Eriksen to score anytime is our pick of the goalscorer bets at 23/10 with Betstars.
