Argentina vs Peru – 2018 World Cup Qualification: The two last rounds of the 2018 World Cup Qualification Stage in South America will be very entertaining to watch
Since there are 7 teams who are fighting for 3 direct access spots and 1 play-off spot.
Argentina is one of the highest-rated National teams who is still in this fight.
The bad results obtained under the command of Edgardo Baúza have led to a change of manager, with Jorge Sampaoli taking over the team in a dangerous period.
After 2 official matches, he is still looking to get his first win.
If the goalless draw in Uruguay felt like a win, the 1-1 draw against Venezuela, at home, was very bitter and left the team in a tough situation.
At this moment, Argentina are in 5th place. On the last round, they will travel to Ecuador, who is also involved on the fight for qualification.
Therefore, there will be some pressure on the Argentinians. Amongst the absent players, Sergio Aguero, who is injured, will be the most worrying one, although he hasn’t been an option for Sampaoli yet, who preferred to start Dybala and Icardi.
It is an Argentinian team trying to change their playing stile while they are very pressured to win. This is a context that favours the occurrence of mistakes.
For Peru, who is coming off 3 straight wins, in Venezuela, with Bolivia and in Ecuador, the opportunity of beating one of the best teams of their continent is a possibility.
Argentina vs Peru – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Paolo Guerrero and Jefferson Farfán, two very experienced strikers, can be the weapons to defeat a somewhat nervous Argentinian team, due to the situation they are currently in.
But manager Ricardo Gareca, also Argentinian, knows very well the risk he has of getting dominated on this match.
A match where Argentina will have to overcome the pressure and anxiety in order to ensure a win they need and that gets them closer to the World Cup in Russia.
