Peru vs Chile
Date: Saturday, 13th October 2018
Kick-off at 1:30 UK/ 2:30 CET
Venue: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami.
Latin American heavyweights, Peru and Chile square off in this exciting match-up. Chile is back on track to bring their international football standards to the top-notch level, after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Peru will have no regrets about their campaign in Russia. Though beaten, they put on displays to be proud of.
Alexis Sanchez after miraculously saving Manchester United from the brink of defeat last weekend, as well as Mourinho’s career at the Old Trafford from being sacked is rested for this friendly tie. It must be said his absence will take off the potency of Chilean attack.
Peru will avoid at all costs from having three losses in a row in their record. Both teams are well known for their defensive prowess and it will be on full display come Saturday.
Arturo Vidal, after his high profile transfer to the Catalan club Barcelona will be expected to show up in style. His Barca career has not taken on the right note as he has sparingly used by Ernesto Valverde, and that too in dying minutes to protect the lead of the team. It will be his chance to shine and show what he is capable of.
Peru vs Chile Head-to-head
- Peru has one win in their last six matches, while Chile has one win in their last five matches.
- Peru has conceded just six goals in their last eight matches.
- Chile has conceded a combined six goals in last six of their matches.
Peru vs Chile Prediction
Both Chile and Peru will be keen to avoid losses. Peru will want to get over their recent stumble and also add on to their impressive World Cup performance. Whereas Chile will want to get out of the shadow of failure to qualify for the summer tournament.
Without Alexis Sanchez at their disposal, Chile will have their wings cut from their attack. And against the steady Peruvian defence, Chile will likely suffer.
Peru attack will be controlled by the presence of defensive midfielder Arturo Vidal, who will be highly motivated to prove himself.
The match will play out to a draw and players will find it hard to score goals.
