Peru vs Denmark Match Preview
Ricardo Gareca’s team make a draw against Sweden in their last test before this match, and they are now undefeated in 15 games (10W, 5D). After the qualifying for Peru, few people believed they could get here, but this happened after making some good matches and winning against New Zealand in two playoffs games.
On the other side, Denmark is in a similar form, having no loss in the last four games and just two of the last 10 (4W, 2D, 2L). And Danes had to go through a playoff game against Ireland by beat them with 5: 1 aggregate.

Peru vs Denmark Betting Tips and Predictions
This game is difficult to predict, but I still expect Peru to win over Denmark who hardly play away from their country, as they are without a victory in the last three games (1D,2L).
Better to look at the goals market, when we talk for match of Denmark more than three goals we saw only 1 time in the last 5 games, the same being seen in 2 out of 5 for Peru. Both teams can be proud with their defensive statistics, with Peru having recorded 7 clean sheets in the last 9 games and Danes make it 6 times in the last 8 encounters, so under 2.5 goals in the match is the best choice here.
