Peru v Denmark World Cup 2018, 16th June – 5.00 p.m
(Full time: 0:1 – goals: Poulsen 59′)
It is going to be interesting to see how Denmark handle themselves in this one. Overall the Danes look in pretty good shape and could be a very interesting dark horse at the tournament. But this may well be a test of their patience against a Peru side who are actually carrying some decent form and that has made a Peru v Denmark prediction a little more complex.

Peru v Denmark Betting Tips
Peru who only scraped into the 2018 World Cup by the skin of their teeth in the final round of qualification matches, have suddenly looked like a growing force. Peru have not lost a game since the beginning of September 2017 and they have won four of their five games played in 2018, drawing the other one. There have been some notable results in that sequence as well as they beat Croatia, Iceland and Saudi Arabia all of which will be playing at the 2018 World Cup. Last weekend they completed their warm-up so with a 0-0 draw against Sweden who are also at Russia 2018. So that’s pretty decent form that Peru are carrying and they have scored at least two goals in all but one of their last six games. The interesting thing about this form also is that during qualification for the 2018 World Cup their defence was a shambles but they have now collected six clean sheets in their last seven fixtures.
Under 2.5 goals at bet365 is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018 at 7:20 p.m.) makes for a good Peru v Denmark betting tip, because Denmark rock solid at the back. So this may end up being a tight evenly matched affair. This will be their first World Cup since Spain 1982. Peru have their captain Paolo Guerrero as their star player and he along with Jefferson Farfan are their main goal scoring threats. They are not very young scoring threats though at 34 and 33 years old respectively. At the end of their qualification campaign where they completed an inter-Confederation play-off success against New Zealand, you would probably wouldn’t have even been talking about them being in the picture in this contest. Suddenly that has changed and they could pose Denmark a problem or two.
Denmark can be considered one of the dark horses for the tournament and given the setup in Group C alongside France, Australia and Peru, the Danes will fancy their chances of appearing in the knockout phase of the competition. They are just will have to tread cautiously a little bit here and will need their are excellent defence at its very best because Peru are far better going forward than they are defending. We have already spoken about the recent Peruvian defensive record and Denmark’s is right there equally as good. Denmark have seven clean sheets in their last eight fixtures and for Peru v Denmark betting tips both teams not to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018 at 7:20 p.m.).
Christian Eriksen had a tremendous qualification campaign for the Danes and he is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018 at 7:20 p.m.) in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market. He certainly is their most influential player and they will look to him to pull the strings in the game. While Denmark have had a fantastic defensive record the one issue which may hinder them is a lack of goals themselves. Denmark have managed just five goals in their last nine games so don’t have a high output. They did round off their World Cup warm-up campaign with a good 2-0 win over Mexico on the weekend (with Eriksson getting one of them) and given how many clean sheets Peru have collected recently you do wonder if they will be able to break the South Americans? They should be a really interesting battle. The Denmark 1-0 option at bet365 is at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on June 11, 2018 at 7:20 p.m.).
Peru v Denmark Head to Head
This will be just the second meeting between Denmark and Peru the previous one happening back in 1997 in what was just an international friendly. Denmark collected a 2-1 victory in a game.
Who will win – Peru v Denmark Predictions
Peru have held themselves together pretty well, especially at the back, in their final warm-up matches and suddenly look more of a threat than they were a couple of months ago. So this could be a tricky opener for Denmark who themselves are in good form, but the Europeans have that extra touch of quality and our betting tip leans towards the Danes getting a victory to nil.
