Peru vs Croatia – International Friendly: In one of the several international friendlies taking place this Saturday, played on neutral ground, in Miami, United States, at the Hard Rock Stadium
The Peruvian national team, managed by Ricardo Gareca, and the Croatian national team, managed by Zlatko Dalic, face off in what will be the first encounter between these two teams, serving as a preparation match for the World Cup in Russia.
The South-American team comes into this match after a very positive campaign in terms of the World Cup Qualifiers,
only finishing behind the strongest teams on that qualification zone and still managing to overtake Chile with the result obtained on the last round against Colombia, pushing the South-American champions out of the International competition.
The team is coming off a very positive streak of results, probably even the best of the last couple of years, being unbeaten since the end of 2016, having only slipped up, on official matches, on the trips to Venezuela and Argentina and on the reception to the Colombians.
As for the European side, they are coming off a complicated qualifying campaign for the World Cup that will be played this year in Russian soil, needing to play on the play-offs to achieve the desired objective, beating Greece 4-1 on aggregate.
The team is coming off a streak of results with some alternation, although being unbeaten for a total of 4 matches, winning 2 and drawing the other 2 in that period.
Peru vs Croatia – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Peru that is one of the most consistent teams on the defensive point of view and that has caused a lot of problems to the stronger teams of the American continent,
I believe that this will be the match where they will prove that same consistency and that, therefore, will result on a more tactical match, instead of a properly exciting one.
