Peru host Argentina

Peru host Argentina at the Estadio Nacional de Lima in a World Cup qualifier in South America. These games are so hot, so let’s preview it in our football prediction betting tips today.

Peru are in a desperate need of points at the moment. They are currently 8th in the standings with just one point won from three matches played. One draw and two losses – this is what they have achieved so far in the campaign.

Few days ago Peru suffered a second defeat in their campaign. Ricardo Gareca’s team faced Chile away from home, but suffered a 0-2 loss after two goals from Arturo Vidal. Nothing which Peru tried really worked for them on this day.

Argentina are doing better and they are currently second in the standings with 7 points won so far. They lost points for a first time few days ago when they made a 1-1 draw against Paraguay in Buenos Aires. Nicolas Gonzalez scored after an assist from Giovani Lo Celso, but in the second half no goals were scored and the 1-1 draw was not changed.

It won’t be surprising if Argentina’s manager Lionel Scaloni makes some small changes in the line-up for the next game. Players like Lo Celso, Di Maria and Alario could return in the starting eleven. After a dissapointing result Argentina need some changes and extra motivation to do better in Lima.

These are our football prediction betting tips today for the World Cup qualifier between Peru and Argentina in Lima. The visitors are doing better since the beginning of the qualifying campaign, but do not underrestimate the hosts – Peru are in a real need of points at the moment. This could give them some extra motivation to do better against Lionel Messi and his teammates. Argentina didn’t impress in their last fixture, so let’s see how they will do.
