The South American qualifiers for the World Cup are slowly but surely starting to showcase their winners and their losers.
As every four years, South America is one of the most dynamic regions, with lots of surprises and almost never the same nations finishing on first spots.
This time around, roughly all favorites are doing well, but there still are teams which play great at home – and Peru is one of them.

The Peruvians are coming after a sound 4-1 away win over Paraguay and are now only 3 points short of 5th place – which will take them to the inter-region playoffs.
It’s safe to say they are not completely ruled out of the race yet, but it will be hard to recover the difference, especially looking at the names of their direct adversaries: Argentina, Chile, Ecuador and Paraguay.
Regardless, Peru will continue to push their great home form (only losing 1 game in this qualifiers) as much as possible and maybe sneak into top-5.
Sadly for them, their next opponents are the Brazilians. The current leaders, 24 points, 26-9 goal difference, who come after a commanding 3-0 victory over arch-rivals Argentina.
They beat Peru in their former clash 3-0 at home, and will be looking to repeat this feat in order to be sure they remain in 1st place.
They’re already virtually qualified from the group, with 7 points separating them from 5th place, but will be looking to win it – since they haven’t done so for quite some time.
Peru vs Brazil Betting Tips
From a betting perspective, we can’t think that Brazil will lose this game, so X2 is a virtual certainty. Their great form can bring them a win, but Peru will prove to be up for the challenge.
We’d rather bet that Peru will also score in the game, backed by their home crowd, at that we will see over 2,5 goals in the game. Good luck!
