Venezuela vs Peru Predictions
Will it be a Peru Win? Can Venezuela take a lead by winning over Peru? We have a prediction for the match based on the matches they have played so far. Have a look.
Can Venezuela Defeat Peru?
Venezuela has been delivering surprising goals against top teams such as Argentina at the Friendlies. Venezuela was swift enough to take a lead immediately after the game began at the 6th-minute with Salomon’s goal. They won 3-1 against Argentina and their recent win was against the United States.
Again the star performer of the team, Salomon Rondon scored the opening and closing winning goal for the team. He scored a brace and Savarino added a goal to the team at the 30th-minute and they went on to defeat the USA goalless 3-0. Take a look at Salomon’s stunning brace against the USA.
Will Peru Top the Group A?
Peru is one of the 4 teams in Group A that will be playing its first match against Venezuela this Saturday. Peru faced a disappointing defeat against Columbia at the Friendlies on 10th June. Columbia was strong enough to net 3 goals, whereas Peru remained goalless 0-3.
Peru’s Yotun received a red card at the 55th-minute of the match and the team was able to take 3 shots on target. Of the last 5 Friendly matches, Peru was able to collect 2 wins against Paraguay and Costa Rica with one goal each and defeated the teams goalless (1-0).
Will it be a Draw? – Our Prediction
Both the teams are in the transitional phase as their win-loss strategy has been unpredictable. Venezuela’s key player Salomon is in its best form and might want to start the tournament with a win, whereas Peru’s Cueva is expected to compete well enough to keep the team’s dream to win the tournament.
Venezuela, as well as, Peru are capable of upsetting each other with a win and therefore there are chances that the match might end in a draw. If Peru succeeds in taking a lead with an early goal, then there are chances that the match might end in their favor, yet Venezuela will not let go so easily.
