Denmark v Peru World Cup betting picks – Danes can be great in defence

Posted on: 5th June 2018

Peru have enjoyed an outstanding 2018 to date, with Los Incas winning all four of their matches against Croatia, Iceland, Scotland and Saudi Arabia.

The South American side were rather surprising qualifiers considering it had been 36 years since they last featured at a tournament, with Ricardo Gareca now looking to steer his team beyond Group C and into the knockout stages.

They clearly have a danger man in the form of Paulo Guerrero, with the Flamengo forward racking up 34 goals in 87 international appearances thus far and a drugs ban has been lifted so he can participate in this tournament.

However, the Peruvians were defensively porous in World Cup qualifying and could find life difficult against a Denmark side who are defensively stout and come into this tournament in a confident mood.

Christian Eriksen is the ultimate playmaker and really makes the Scandinavian side tick, while Denmark are looking defensively stout after enjoying shut-outs against Panama, Chile and Sweden.

We would imagine that the European side will have the upper hand in this match, with Andreas Christensen and Simon Kjaer likely to flourish in central defence and Kasper Schmeichel is a safe pair of hands between the sticks.

Rather than back Denmark to win the game, we like their price to claim victory without conceding, while a 1-0 victory in their favour is also worth taking.
