Australia vs. Peru

Monday, June 13, 2022 – 02:00 PM EDT at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium

  • Australia is unbeaten in 31 of their 34 WC Qualification Asia meetings.
  • Australia has qualified for the World Cup consecutively since 2002.
  • Peru has lost or drawn 6 of their last 9 World Cup qualifiers away from home.

Australia Soccer Analysis

Australian fans over the globe rejoiced in the 84th minute this past week as Ajdin Hrustic delivered a sublime volley to put his team 2-1 up versus the UAE and ultimately send the Socceroos into the World Cup qualification final.

Peru stands in their way on Monday afternoon, but can the South American outfit prevent the Aussies from a fifth straight World Cup appearance?

Hop into the World Cup time machine for a moment, and you won't recall Australia failing to reach the World Cup tournament in 20 long years. However, the Socceroos won't be quick to forget their 2018 World Cup outing when Peru eliminated them from the competition (0-2).

As a revenge game is upon them, can we really trust the bookmaker's favorable odds on Peru?

Peru Soccer Analysis

The last time Peru was the betting favorites, they barely defeated New Zealand with a 1-0 scoreline. Now we're expected to believe in this untrustworthy side versus a highly confident Aussie outfit?

We cannot expect this meeting to be as simple as a Peru victory. Yes, of course, that result is possible. I just don't expect the Aussies to fall back and allow Ricardo Gareca's men to run havoc, especially when we consider that New Zealand is 59 ranking positions below their Australian neighbors.

The importance of this meeting suggests that both teams will be at their best mentally and physically, which should lead to a low-scoring affair. Backing Peru doesn't feel safe, and with the odds becoming more expansive by the day, the Aussie double chance (win or draw) betting market is increasing its temptation.

Australia vs. Peru: Betting Pick and Prediction

The best sportsbooks and betting sites favor Peru, but I struggle to envision a comfortable repeat of the 2018 clash between these two sides where Peru easily sailed to victory.

The Aussies are high on confidence and will be looking to extend their impressive streak in qualifying for World Cups. With this in mind, taking Australia to win or draw within 90 minutes boasts some exceptional value and is close to plus-money.

As more Peruvian backers expect Australia to crash out of the competition, I wouldn't be surprised if we witness the odds increase.
