France vs Peru Today’s Soccer Prediction
As mentioned above, the French can compete much more relaxed. In the first round, they played a lame game, but in the end they could still achieve a significant 2-1 win over Australia. The first goal was scored by the charges of coach Deschamps namely only after a realized penalty, while they got the winning goal from the opposing defender Behich in the 81st minute. He scored an own goal. Incidentally, the trikolors had the same possession as their opponents, and they have one of the best midfielders in the world in their own ranks. These are u.a. Pogba, Kante, Toliss and Matuidi.
Matuidi came on as a substitute in the second half while we expect him from the first minute instead of Toliss. In the attack instead of Dembele the fast Fekir or Giroud should get the chance. Most coaches like players like having Giroud on the bench as a wild card, so Fekir is more likely to be expected from the first minute. He is also much more agile, which the French really need in the fight against the aggressive and militant South Americans. It should also be mentioned that the appearance of the slightly injured defender Sidibe is questionable and the young Pavard should play in this position.
Probable lineup French: Lloris – Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Fernandez – Matuidi, Kante, Pogba – Mbappe, Griezmann, Fekir
As we said in the introduction, the Peruvians delivered a very good match in the first match against Denmark. There was only a little luck but also concentration in the final phase. That’s why the points were gone. In all statistical categories, they were better than the Danes. Whole 18 shots on the gate of Schmeichel and just before the end of the first half, the Peruvians even sipped a penalty. Midfielder Cueva shot the ball out of the goal. The penalty came in the 59th minute when Poulsen scored a goal. He also ensured the first victory of his national team.
The Peruvians are now in a delicate situation. They must not allow themselves a foul anymore, where they meet only now on the group favorites and one of the candidates for the title. Coach Garcea does not have a very broad player squad, so he can not make any significant changes. But he has no reason to, because the team has done a very good job in the first round. This time, only the attacking Guerrero should act in the attack instead of Flores.
Expected lineup Peru: Gallese – Advincula, Ramos, Rodriguez, Trauco – Tapia, Yotun – Carrillo, Cueva, Farfan – Guerrero
Although the French did not make a very good impression in the first round, they are still a big favorite. The Peruvians are not allowed to lose anymore, which is why we expect them to play offensively. Accordingly, there should be goals on both sides here.
