Peru v Denmark

Peru and Denmark will face off in one of the most evenly-matched encounters of the opening weekend of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

5Dimes has this game as dead even with each team with posted odds of +220 and a draw at +135. The Over/Under for this match is set at 2.5 goals.

Not only is this match even with the betting odds, but it could not be any more even when it comes to the FIFA rankings either. Peru is the 11th ranked team in the world while Denmark is right behind them rankling 12th.

This is the first ever meeting between these teams.

Peru was the last team to qualify for Russia beating New Zealand in a playoff after finishing South American qualifying as the 5th place squad. To say they come into the tournament hot would be an understatement unbeaten in their last 15 matches. Peru is back in the World Cup after a 36-year absence

Denmark was unbeaten in their last four friendlies leading up to the World Cup with two wins and two draws where they did not concede a single goal. Their last match was an impressive one beating a solid Mexico team 2-0.

Andreas Christensen and Simon Kjaer form a solid tandem for the Dames on the defensive side of the pitch and Christian Eriksen, William Kvist, and Thomas Delaney will likely be in the starting 11 for the solid midfield. While Denmark has a good defense and midfield their issue has been scoring goals. In their last four friendlies they only scored three goals even though they went unbeaten.

Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen is the key player up front for the Danes and he led them in qualifying with eight goals including a hat trick in the win over Ireland that booked their trip to Russia.

Both teams have been playing great defense and don’t look for a high scoring match in this one. Peru has seven clean sheets in their last nine matches and Denmark has six in their last eight matches.

Peru suffered a big blow before the tournament with striker Paolo Guerrero ruled out because of a suspension for a doping ban. Jefferson Farfan will have to lead the attack up front. Christian Cueva is the best playmaker for the squad and his skills in the midfield will be crucial in this match and the tournament.

With each team still having to face France each will likely not use an attacking style so the match will likely be won in the midfield. Both teams will look for the counter-attack, but being cautious both will also drop their midfield back to the defensive side of the pitch.

This is a very evenly-matched game with both teams having a good defense and playing well in their last few matches.

I would not be surprised if it ended in a scoreless draw. Denmark may have the slight edge in the midfield and that is why they will win this match. They will find a way to find the back of the net once and take three points away with a 1-0 win over Peru.
