Peru vs Uruguay Prediction
The host has 3 wins and 5 losses in their last ten fixtures in the schedule. Peru has stumbled on a couple of draws in the meantime. On the other hand, Uruguay has won 7 and lost none in their last 10 games in all competitions. The guest is also carrying a nine-game undefeated streak ahead of this contest.
Manager Oscar Washington will be relying on Christian Stuani to lead the front as both Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez have not been included in the squad yet. The return of star striker Paolo Guerrero missed out in the prior games will aid the home team in their quest and is also going to pose a big threat to the opposition defenders. Also, Miguel Araujo and Christian Cueva will not feature in this bout.
Apart from that, the host is on a three-game winless run in their home matches. Also, they have registered three wins in the last ten home ties. In the meantime, the guest is unbeaten in the last six away fixtures in their schedule. Moreover, the home team has lost to nil in their previous home tie in the fixture. Meanwhile, Uruguay had their previous trip on the road pulled to a draw in the end.
Besides that, the Peruvians are a real force to be reckoned with at home and they are likely to take advantage of the fact that the visitors are without their star players. Be as it may, the traveling side missing their star duo still should be considered as the better side as they have more international experience. As such, the chances of the visitors shine more than the host.
