But they got the points thanks to VAR and can now push forward to trying to secure a place in the next round. Peru did a great job in threatening Denmark in their opener, but they just couldn’t take their chances and end up on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline. Can Peru raise a challenge to France?

France v Peru Betting Tips
France are going to have to find a few more gears if they are serious about winning the World Cup. They looked very flat and devoid of creativity in their opening 2-1 win over Australia. It was a late strike assisted by VAR that got the French a very nervy win in a game that they were expected to be so comfortable in. Because of that a France to win by a 1 goal margin in this one is at 5/2 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.). So it will be interesting to see what kind of performance they can provide in this one, which isn’t going to be that easy of a game as Peru look competitive. France are the ones with the deep squad and the quality of some of the top stars in the world and Antoine Griezmann is the 4/1 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.) for the fixture. To be fair the French forwards need a bit better service than they got against Australia.
France are unbeaten in their last six games, winning five of those so their form is pretty strong. They will be concerned about things at the back though because they have collected only the one clean sheet in that sequence and because of that and how shaky they looked in conceding against Australia, both teams to score at bet365 is a 19/20 odds option* (Betting Odds were taken on June 18th, 2018 at 4:39 p.m.) here which doesn’t say a great deal against France’s defence really. So this could end up being a good competitive match and the mentality of the French will be tested if the South Americans get up a head of steam and get them rattled. With the three points from the first game, France does have a bit of a cushion and they could get out of this with a draw and still be comfortable in qualification. However, they need to prove to themselves that they are better than that first performance.
Peru gave a really good account of themselves in their opening game against Denmark, which they lost 1-0 but really deserved a draw out of it. They looked pretty positive and you could tell that they were a side running on self-belief after a surprising turn of good form in the World Cup warm-ups. They are now W3 D1 L1 in their last six games and they have conceded just the two goals in that sequence. So for a side who were an absolute defensive shambles through qualification for Russia 2018, things have come good for them and they should be able to stick in there and frustrate the French. For our France v Peru betting tips were are going to take a chance on under 2.5 goals with bet365 for the game, backing the South Americans to stick in there defensively against a French side which may not be up and running in full flow yet. Four of Peru’s last five games have finished under the goal line and two of France’s last four have as well. Because of their loss in their opener, Peru has to chase and push hard in this one. Will they have enough to not only get under the skin of the French but produce a World Cup upset and a major one at that?
