In the sixth round of the South American selection for the 2022 World Cup, two outsiders in the overall standings will meet – Peru will host Venezuela. Will the White-Reds be able to become stronger again in the face-to-face confrontation on September 6 and return to the race for a ticket to the world championship? – learn from our forecast.
The national team of Peru under the leadership of Ricardo Gareca was able to score four points in the last two qualifying rounds and with five points scored is ninth in the overall standings.
The gap from the fifth line, which gives the right to play-offs, is four points, and the “white-red” have a chance to catch on this opportunity. In the last match, they were able to withstand the confrontation with Uruguay (1: 1) and even had an advantage in the home meeting. And before that, they minimally outplayed Ecuador away (2: 1), conceding only in stoppage time.
Venezuela is the last team to qualify and have only four points in seven games. Jose Peseiro’s wards in the last round lost to Argentina at home (1: 3), remaining in the minority in the 32nd minute of the match and scoring a prestige goal only in stoppage time. Before that there was a home goalless draw with Uruguay in a fairly equal fight.
The Peruvians have not lost to their current opponents for five matches in a row and have good statistics of performances against Venezuela. The White-Reds still have chances to compete for a ticket to the World Championship, which they will try to take advantage of in the next game.
Most likely, the owners will get down to business with the starting whistle and will not calm down until the advantage becomes quite comfortable. We believe that the guests will suffer another defeat and we propose to take advantage of this.
Our forecast is the Asian handicap (-1) in Peru . 1xbet.ng app download offers a coefficient of 2.26 for such an outcome.
Teams often play with each other quite effectively and there is every reason to assume that the next meeting between the teams will not be an exception to this rule. A good line of attack of the Peruvians, in our opinion, will constantly disturb the opponent’s defense, which often makes gross mistakes. The guests, in turn, will try to respond in counterattacks, and the match promises to once again become rich in goals scored.
Our second bet will be over 2.5 goals total . Such a bet can be placed for 2.31
