Peru look to keep their good form going when Jamaica visits them for a football friendly on Tuesday night.
The La Blanquirroja came on top in the recent friendly match against Paraguay by a narrow 1-0 margin to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to three games. Previously, they defeated Uruguay 2-1 and held Venezuela to a 2-2 draw in qualification fixtures.
Peru’s chances in the 2018 World Cup qualification campaign cannot be ruled out as they sit 4 points behind the fifth placed Argentina. Their head-coach Ricardo Gareca will be keen to perfect the tactics before the teams take on Bolivia and Ecuador in August.
Jamaica will have one eye on the Concacaf Gold Cup starting in July. Their friendly against Peru is a perfect opportunity for them to test the metal against a stronger team outside their continental zone.
The Reggae Boys’s last duels came in the month of February when they met USA and Honduras for friendlies. They lost to the USA by a narrow 1-0 margin, but picked up a morale boosting win against Honduras by the same score-line.
Peru vs Jamaica: Head-to-head
These teams had met twice in friendly fixtures, but this will be their first meeting in the Peruvian soil.
Peru won 2-1 when the teams met for the last time in 2010. While they clash in 2006 was a 1-1 draw.
Peru vs Jamaica: Prediction
The team in form is Peru, as they are coming with some brilliant home form. They were beaten just once in the last five matches in home soil, which was against Brazil. While they defeated a top class team like Uruguay and shared the spoils with Argentina among the 2 wins and 2 draws during the period.
Jamaica can tend to play ultra defensive, which could play out in the hands of a offensive minder Peru. One cannot expect an upset result here. On form, Peru are poised to win this without conceding a goal.
