Argentina vs Peru Prediction & Analysis

The Argentine team recorded a comprehensive 3-0 win at home the last match-day, against Uruguay. In the meantime, Peru lost 1-0 on the road against possibly the weakest team in the CONMEBOL federation – the Bolivians.

Going on, Messi and co had won nine of their former ten games, and they had scored thrice or more in five of their preceding eight fixtures. Moreover, the last they lost at home was back in March of 2019.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their former eight matches, and they are on a four-game losing run on the road.

On top of that, they also have an inferior h2h record against this rival over the years, and for all these reasons, expect a huge win for the in-form Argentina this Friday at the Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti.

Key Stats for Betting

  • The Albiceleste are the reigning South American champions, and they are also ranked 6th in the world at the moment – as opposed to their counterparts for the day being placed at the 21st position.
  • Lionel Messi and co are also on the longest unbeaten streak for any international team at the moment. In fact, their latest defeat had come in the semifinal of the 2019 Copa America.
