Australia v Peru, World Cup 2018, Match Preview


Australia and Peru meet in a Group C match on Tuesday and while Peru are guaranteed to be heading home after the game, Australia do have an outside chance of qualifying for the last 16.  We take a look at the game from a betting angle.



Only two teams can win this group and that is 2/11 favourites France and Denmark who are priced at 34/10.  Australia can qualify for the last 16 if France beat Denmark and they beat Peru in which case it will come down to goal difference.  Australia are priced at 9/2 to qualify.

Australia have looked good at times in this tournament and they gave France a run for their money in their opening game losing 2-1 before coming out and drawing with Denmark 1-1.  They will have no choice but to push for victory here against a Peru side which has lost both its matches by 1 goal margins to Denmark and France.

Peru have nothing but pride to play for although if they can beat Australia it will be the Australians who finish bottom of this group.

These sides have never met in a competitive match.



Australia 39/20

Draw 9/4

Peru 15/10


Suggested bet:  Over 2.5 goals at 21/20.

I am a little bit surprised to be getting better than even money about this bet as I think this could be a game with goals in it.  I am basing this on the fact that Australia will have no choice but to push for the victory and this could open up chances at both ends.
