Denmark to edge tight contest against improving Peru

Peru v Denmark - World Cup 2018

Peru v Denmark Betting Preview – World Cup 2018 16th June – 5.00 p.m
(Full time: 0:1 – goals: Poulsen 59′)

This should be an interesting game in Group C at Russia 2018 because both of these are actually carrying decent form. Our prediction for Peru v Denmark is that it is not going to be a high-scoring game because both have their clear strengths at the back by and large, so this may be a bit of a war of attrition. Denmark are the favourites to bag themselves maximum points and they have been labelled as one of the dark horses of the tournament.

Peru News and Form

Out of the blue Peru suddenly look like a bit of a force to be reckoned with heading into the 2018 World Cup, at least in Group C. They didn’t have a particularly great World Cup qualification campaign but now they have rattled off four wins in their last five games, drawing the other one. It’s not only that but the fact that they have beaten three nations who are heading to the World Cup as well during that sequence,those being Croatia, Iceland and Saudi Arabia. They also picked up a 0-0 draw against Sweden on the weekend in their final preparation match, another side who are going to be joining them in the tournament. So Peru seem to have gotten their act together just in time to have a run at the competition, although they are still underdogs to get out of the group which also contains France and Australia. You only have to look at their turnaround in defence because they were a defensive mess during World Cup qualification but have now collected six clean sheets in their last seven games.

Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018 at 7:20 p.m.) ranks high in our Peru v Denmark predictions, because Denmark too are very good defensive side. There probably is not going to be too much to choose between these two at the end of the day. This is going to be a big moment for Peru who are finally back at the World Cup finals for the first time since the 1982 edition. Peru don’t exactly have the most sprightly of attacks with captain Paolo Guerrero and Jefferson Farfan their main players up top who are 34 and 33 years old respectively. If you would have looked at Peru at the end of their qualification campaign then you probably would have been looking at them as not being in with much of a chance in this game. That’s turned on its head a little bit.

Denmark News and Form

Denmark have a good chance of qualification from Group C but they are going to need to make a positive start in this one against Peru. France are expected to win the group so this is going to be an important game in the race for the other qualification spot. Denmark make a good dark horse option to make a run at the quarter-finals, because they are carrying good form. Defensively they are superb and right on point at the moment and are going to need that defence to stay intact because Peru like to get forward in their games. Denmark have collected seven clean sheets in their last eight fixtures and both teams not to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018, at 7:20 p.m.). They may both find it really hard to make a breakthrough in this game.

Denmark main man is Christian Eriksen who had a fantastic qualification campaign, top scoring for his country and the Tottenham man is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018, at 7:20 p.m.) in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market. He has to bring his A-game and be at the centre of everything positive that Denmark do at the tournament. So while their form is good and they are rock solid at the back the one issue about Denmark is that they are not scoring very well at the moment. They have produced only five goals in their last nine games and that would just be a slight concern for them, but they did bank a 2-0 victory over Mexico on the weekend in their final warm-up fixture. Eriksen notably was on the scoresheet. This is probably the best Denmark set up for a long time, will they be able to come up with that piece of magic to unlock the Peru defence? In our Peru v Denmark predictions a Denmark 1-0 option in the bet365 correct score market at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018, at 7:20 p.m.) has big appeal.

Peru v Denmark Predictions

This is likely to be a low scoring game so under 2.5 goals jump off the page. If you’re looking for a touch of quality to be the difference in the fixture then you would have to lean on it being Denmark who comes out on top. Denmark to win to nil looks a solid proposition.
