Peru v Denmark - World Cup 2018

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

This could be a tight tussle between Peru and Denmark in Group C at Russia 2018. With France expected to win the group, the battle will be on for that other qualification spot. Denmark are favourites to get it and they are in solid form, but this opening fixture looks a bit trickier for them at the moment than it first did. That is because of some very good results that Peru posted during their World Cup warm-ups. Will the South Americans be able to pull off a surprise? Find out in our Peru v Denmark predictions.

Peru vs Denmark Odds*

Peru vs Denmark Preview

Punters will probably have had a good look at Denmark and their chances of getting out of Group C at the 2018 World Cup. They had a great qualification campaign and looking a solid enough option to make it through to the knockout phase of the tournament. This is the same group as France’s and with the French likely to take one of the two qualification spots from it, then this becomes a very important game for Denmark in Group C in trying to lock down qualification place. Denmark strengths are definitely at the back as they have collected seven clean sheets in their last eight games and the longer that kind of defensive form stays intact, the better the chances are going to be progressing.

Can Denmark raise attacking threat?

They have not been particularly prolific in front of goal the which will be of concern for them as they have come up with only five goals in their last nine games played. They did collect a good 2-0 win over Mexico on the weekend in what was their final warm-up game ahead of the 2018 World Cup and Christian Eriksen was on the scoresheet in the victory. The Tottenham man was Denmark’s top goalscorer through qualification and he is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018, at 7:20 p.m.) in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market. Denmark are going to need him pulling all the strings in the middle of the park to the best of his ability.

So defensively Denmark are right there at the moment and both teams not to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018 at 7:20 p.m.) which appeals greatly in Peru v Denmark predictions. While a Denmark 1-0 option in the bet365 correct score market is at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018 at 7:20 p.m.). Again with Eriksen at the heart of everything, this is the best Denmark side that we have seen for a least a couple of decades. But suddenly this looks like a fixture which could be trickier than first thought.

Peru hit form at the right time

That is because Peru have upped their game and they have a great run of form going at the moment. The South Americans are W4 D1 in their last five games and haven’t lost a single match going back to September 2017 which is an 11 match sequence. It’s not only that but they have taken very good wins against Croatia, Iceland and Saudi Arabia in their last five games and earned a good 0-0 draw against Sweden on the weekend and those are all sides who will be joining Peru at the 2018 World Cup. So Peru who had a ban on captain Paolo Guerrero overturned, seems to be suddenly moving in the right direction.

One big notable change about them is that they have tightened up at the back. They had only two clean sheets in their entire qualification process and suddenly they have six in their last seven games. So that is a drastic turnaround for them and given they are taking on a Denmark side who are struggling for goals just a little bit at the moment a Peru v Denmark prediction of under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018 at 7:20 p.m.) appeals too. This is Peru’s first World Cup appearance since 1982 and they have scored at least two goals in five of their last six fixtures as well. Can they make a game of this?

Peru v Denmark Predictions

Given the results that Peru have churned out recently, they may be a bit of value in backing them to get something out of this fixture. Denmark are not a side who are particularly full of goals but they are a very tough side at the back and the prediction of 0-0 correct score in this fixture would not be a huge surprise.
