Peru hosts Bolivia at Estadio Monumental de Lima in a match for the 2018 World Cup Qualification stage.
Their triumph over Uruguay on the last round of qualifying gave the team some hopes of qualifying to the next World Cup.
That’s something that hasn’t happened for a long time. The team has now 18 points, sitting 4 and 5 points behind Argentina and Chile, respectively.
Those teams are the last ones inside the qualification zone, and they are the one that Peru needs to overlap.
Playing at home, Peru has 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses, with a goal record of 12 goals scored and 12 goals conceded.
The only absence for Peru is Paolo Guerrero, who is suspended.

Peru vs Bolivia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Bolivia is doing better than on the last qualifying stage, but they’re still far from achieving that said qualification.
That is Bolivia’s reality currently. The team hasn’t attended a World Cup since 1994, and this time they will miss out, again.
Bolivia has conquered 10 points so far, so they sit on 9th place currently, only above Venezuela, who only has 6.
Away from home, Bolivia’s record is awful, as usual, with 7 losses in 7 matches and a goal record of only 1 goal scored and 20 goals conceded.
That is natural, because the Bolivians always struggle without the altitude of La Paz.
The news from La Paz already warned us that Bolivia might play without some usual starters.
Raldes and Chumacero shouldn’t play and they are considering other players, in order to rest some of them for the game against Chile.
With that said, with the good football that Peru has been playing and with a Bolivia that has been awful when playing away from home, I think Peru will win.
They have a stronger squad and should score at least two goals against this weak Bolivia side.
