Peru to Win
All that Peru needs to do to secure a spot in the inter-conference playoffs is to beat Paraguay, a team that already failed to qualify, at home, in the last round of these Qualifiers.
And while we’ve seem pressure get to teams many times before, we simply don’t see how Peru can mess this up and that’s why our first prediction for this game is for Peru to win.
Peru and Paraguay to Draw at Half Time
Although we do expect Peru to win this game, we don’t expect them to have an easy job. In fact, the stakes are so high for the home team in this game that we can see them enter it as cautiously as they can.
With that in mind, our next prediction for this match is for Peru and Paraguay to draw at half time and for the match to be decided in the second half.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
Since we expect this game to be decided in the second half, we can see the first half ending without any goals scored. In any case, this is too important of a game and we don’t see more than two goals in this match.
Furthermore, Peru averaged 2.29 goals per game in these Qualifiers, while Paraguay averaged 2.12 goals per game in their group until now.
Peru vs Paraguay preview: A crucial game for the home team
Even though all direct spots for the World Cup in Qatar are given out already, the fifth team in the group will have a chance to secure a place at the World Cup through inter-conference playoffs. At the moment, Peru is occupying that spot and they can remain in fifth for sure, regardless of other results, with a win over Paraguay at home.
With sixteen points, Paraguay has no chance to end up at Qatar. In fact, the team was in very poor form until last round in which they beat Ecuador 3-1. Before that, Paraguay lost four of their last five games and during that poor stretch is when they lost their chances of making ti to Qatar.
