Argentina – Peru – Two rounds before the end of the South American qualifications, almost nothing has been resolved, except that Brazil is surely the first, with only two selections unable to reach Mundial. Argentina and Peru are practically the same situation, because they have the same number of points and are fourth and fifth in the division. The difference is that the fourth position leads directly to Russia, and the fifth is in the extra row, while on the small score there are a few more selections. In the previous two rounds, Argentina deflected, while Peru won twice, and the first mutual duel in these qualifications ended with a score of 2: 2.
The worst qualifications for Argentina in the recent past are nearing completion, and this selection as the current world vice-champion can still be left without placement on the Mundial, they can be placed directly, while they are currently in a position that leads to further diversion. Only the fact that they have already lost four games in these qualifications so far and have remixed six times, with the same number of victories, enough talk about the problems they faced.
In the last round, we were, for example, greeted Venezuela, the most plausible team on the table, and they were not able to win them. They finished 1: 1 and thus they lost perhaps the key two points, although Sampaoli coach sent a very offensive line lead by Messi in the field. Not at this gathering of aggressors Aguero and Higuain, while Otamendi is skipping this duel due to cardboard.
Probable starting lineup of Argentina: Romero – Mercado, Fazio, Mascherano – Biglia, Banega, Acuna, di Maria – Messi, Dybala, Icardi.
Peru has already been virtually eliminated from the battle for Mundial, but then they have played great lately and have recorded three boundary victories, which led them to a situation that they can rightly hope for. Far from their way is now easy, because after this tour, they will also meet Colombia and they will need two good results. Judging by the form in which this selection is located, it is not excluded to make two more surprises and get to Russia. The series began with a home triumph over Uruguay, when they reversed the result and celebrated with 2: 1.
Then they were expected to beat Bolivia ahead of their fans, in order to make a great deal in the last round with a winning victory over Ecuador. The first name of this selection is the midfielder Flores, who scored goals for all three of the aforementioned tournaments. The big problem for this game is absent, because in the finish of the match with Ecuador stopper Ramos got a red card and has no right to perform. Due to the yellow cards, Carrillo, Cueva and Hurtado will be absent, and Advincula will return to the last line.
The likely starting lineup of Peru: Caceda – Advincula, Rodriguez, Araujo, Trauco – Yotun, Tapia – Flores, Santamaria, Ruidiaz – Guerrero
Argentina – Peru
Argentines have definitely knocked out all the loans and they really should not have had a new kicks in the fight for placement on the Mundial. They have certain problems with the composition, but Peru has even bigger problems and maybe for this selection, the placement in Russia would be too big, so we predict a certain defeat.
