Peru vs Croatia Preview
Peru are now unbeaten in their last ten matches, including recording a 0-0 draw against Argentina in their World Cup qualifying campaign. They qualified for this summers tournament by beating New Zealand in the playoffs which means they will be playing in their first World Cup since 1982. The South American side are up against France, Denmark and Australia in Group C and will be planning on giving it their all in these friendly matches to take confidence to Russia.
With Peru captain Paolo Guerrero unavailable for this match through suspension due to drugs charges, manager Ricardo Gareca will be looking to other players for goals. Thankfully, players such as Ruidíaz, Farfán, Carrillo and da Silva can all perform in front of goal and will no doubt cause the Croatian defence problems.
Croatia qualified for Russia 2018 by finishing second in their group behind Iceland with six wins, two draws and two losses. They’ll meet Iceland again in Russia as they, along with Argentina and Nigeria are in their group. Despite Iceland claiming a 1-0 victory over Croatia in the group stages and finishing above them, it is Croatia who are favourites to proceed past the groups’ stages along with Argentina.
Croatia are unbeaten n their last four matches but have only won two of their last eight away from home. Saturday’s match will be a tough test for Croatia who are likely to field a strong side to prepare themselves for a difficult group stage in two months time.

Peru come into this fixture with the better form but it is Croatia who have the most quality in their side. Both sides will likely field strong sides and we’re expecting a lively game. Croatia are the bookies favourites to claim the victory but with the home advantage and current form, we’re backing Peru to hold them to a draw. Both sides are capable of scoring goals and with victories wanted to give confidence before heading to Russia, we expect both sides to push for the win and get on the scoresheet. This is one of our both teams to score tips with the victory possible for either team.
