Australia – Socceroos must overcome South American block?

The Socceroos should already be up to speed, and acclimatised, following a 2-1 victory over United Arab Emirates in the Asian play-off final on 7 June. Goals from Jackson Irvine and Ajdin Hrustic – the latter with a heavily deflected winner six minutes from the end – at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, here in Qatar, sending Graham Arnold’s side through to the inter-continental play-off . Facing Peru for a place in the finals.

Should they be successful, then, a sixth World Cup appearance – and fifth in succession – beckons for the fourth highest ranked Asian nation, at 42. That is considerably lower than opponents Peru, though, who did beat them 2-0 at the group stage of the 2018 finals. That result compounding a truly wretched record versus South American sides. Australia failing to win any of seven previous match-ups (D2 L5).

Key Stat: Australia could only produce a third place finish in their World Cup qualifying campaign, winning just four of ten matches (D3 L3) as they finished seven and eight points behind Japan and Saudi Arabia, respectively.

Peru – Clean sheet key to World Cup qualification?

La Blanquirroja have already come up clutch as they endeavour to reach a sixth World Cup finals. Needing to a win to close out CONMEBOL’s arduous qualifying campaign with at least a play-off spot, Peru wasted no time setting about achieving their end goal, racing into a 2-0 half-time lead at home Paraguay. A lead they would not relinquish. Subsequently, they enter into this single-leg tie as favourites to progress on to Qatar.

Preparations for this game involved a friendly against Australia’s Oceania neighbours, New Zealand. Gianluca Lapadula, who opened the scoring in that aforementioned must-win encounter against Paraguay, with the only goal at RCDE Stadium in Barcelona. That marked a sixth win in the last nine (D2 L1). Meanwhile, all but one of Los Incas eight prior victories have now been accompanied by a clean sheet.

Key Stat: Despite not winning any of their first five qualifying matches, Peru recovered to win 7 of the next 13 to finish with an overall record of W7 D3 L8 and claim fifth place in CONMEBOL World Cup qualification.

Australia Vs Peru Betting Advice

Peru are 8/11 to win this inside 90 minutes and 4/11 with the insurance of extra-time and penalties. The South Americans finished fifth in their qualifying group, beating out the likes of Colombia and Chile to secure the one and only play-off berth. Their recent form has been good, with six wins and only the one loss in nine matches, earning a 2-0 win in their sole previous meeting with their inter-continental opponents.


Australia Vs Peru – Key Facts:

  • Peru emerged from the only previous meeting between the nations as 2-0 victors. Netting in either halve in what was their final group stage game at the 2018 World Cup.
  • Australia have won three of their last nine games (W3 D3 L3) but only once in their past five outside of Australia (D2 L2). Though they would score in 9 of their last 10 on the road.
  • Peru are the form team having won six of their last nine (D2 L1). However, they managed just three away wins across nine CONBEMOL World Cup qualifiers (D1 L5) en route to this play-off.


Australia are an enormous 4/1 to win in normal time and 15/8 to progress by any means necessary. Their record versus South American teams has clearly worked against them here, with a 2-0 loss to Peru at the last World Cup one of seven they’ve now failed to win. This is a one-off game, though. Meanwhile there is also an argument conditions in Qatar – most games in Asian qualifying are staged in the Middle East – are more suited to the men from down under.
