Uruguay vs Peru
International – Friendlies
Date: Saturday, 12 October 2019
Kick-off at 00:00 UK / 01:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Centenario.
On a note that Edinson Cavani misses the game with an injury and Luis Suarez is out of contention for the friendly, there is not much hope in relying on the hosts to win. However, Uruguay will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take on Peru in front of home fans at Centenario.

Uruguay vs Peru Prediction
The host is pretty strong at home and is known for their cavalry strength on their turf. Their home run in this season has been decent with just one loss and two draws in the previous ten home ties. Also, their lone loss recently at home was against the World Champions, France, in a 0-2 score.
The Peruvians, on the other hand, did remarkably well to beat Brazil in their last warm-up game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Besides that, Peru has suffered three losses and draws each in their last ten away fixtures in the schedule of this season. Even so, their defeats too were against giants like Brazil, Germany, and Netherland and as such, they cannot be written out of the match.
Anyhow, la Celeste is tough to beat at home, therefore, there is a big value in taking a double chance in case of a close encounter draw. Moreover, the guest has fared well on their last trip to Brazil defeating them at their home. This has increased their confidence and morale in the game.
Also, the host had their previous home game subjected to a draw against the same visitors in the last month. Be as it may, the visitors won in the penalty shootout throwing Uruguay out of the Copa America. Alongside that, the absence of Cavani and Suarez will shine the light upon Gaston Pereiro. Surely the host will suffer in attacking without the main duo.
Henceforth, the match will probably favor the guest in the bout or we can expect the home team to fight back to settle for a draw.
