Australia v Peru Betting Preview, Odds & Tips

Australia must beat Peru, when the two sides meet on Tuesday, to remain in the World Cup, best priced at 12/5 to do so.

Peru know already they cannot qualify for the knockout stages but are still favourites at 52/35, despite their two defeats in their opening two games.

There some value in Peru failing to find the net for the third consecutive game, valued at 123/50. So far they’ve suffered two narrow 1-0 defeats, first by Denmark, followed by the defeat to strong favourites to win the whole competition, France, but their next opposition have also yet to keep a clean-sheet.

Both teams to score is priced at 22/25 in a game where neither side will be content with a draw.

Australia controversially rescued their World Cup hopes, coming back from 1-0 down against Denmark to rescue a point following Jedinak’s penalty after the use of VAR.

Australia were on the wrong end of a VAR review in their 2-1 defeat to France. Griezmann was awarded and scored a penalty before goal mouth technology confirmed Paul Pogba’s match winning effort later in the game.

Team News

Australia forward Andrew Nabbout dislocated his shoulder in his last match and will most likely miss out.

Potential Australia Starting XI: Ryan, Behich, Milligan, Sainsbury, Risdon, Kruse, Jedinak, Mooy, Leckie, Rogic, Juric

Potential Peru Starting XI: Gallese, Trauco, Rodriguez, Ramos, Advincula, Yotun, Aquino, Flores, Cueva, Carillo, Farfan

Head To Head

  • This is the first time these two sides have met.

Key Stats & Facts

  • Peru are yet to score at this tournament, having played 2 matches.
  • Peru are already out but Australia can still mathematically qualify with a victory.
  • Both teams have scored in both of Australia’s matches so far.

Betting Odds

  • Australia 12/5
  • Draw 53/21
  • Peru 8/5

The Verdict

It’s going to be an open game with Australia needing victory to have any chance of qualification through the group stage but their defensive performance against Denmark, coupled with Peru’s attacking threat through Farfan and Carillo I fancy both sides to register on the scoresheet.
