Tip Reasoning

  • Australia are unbeaten in six of their last eight internationals.
  • Australia have not failed to qualify for a World Cup since 2002.
  • Peru failed to win six of their last nine World Cup qualifiers on foreign soil.

The Socceroos are on a bounce

Attacking midfielder Ajdin Hrustic sent Australian fans across the world into raptures as his stunning 84′ volley against the UAE last time out set up this intercontinental World Cup qualification final with a slender 2-1 victory, now only Peru stand in their way of a fifth consecutive World Cup finals appearance.

This game provides Australia with a perfect opportunity to exact their revenge over Peru after their World Cup 2018 defeat (0-2), a result which contributed to their early elimination from that tournament. The odds suggest that they are rank outsiders, yet having played at this stadium last time out may give the yellows some solace.

The pressure is on Peru

All eyes will be on Peru to get the job done as relatively short priced favourites here, though a slender 1-0 win over New Zealand last time out suggests that this will not be as straightforward as the markets suggest.

However with New Zealand ranked 59 places below Australia, the increase in challenge this time around is notable.

The very nature of this game suggests that both teams will need to be at their very best in order to book their ticket to Qatar, but we predict that the value lies in backing the outsiders. We are taking Australia in the double chance market, with a smaller stakes play on a narrow 2-1 Australian success, watch out for Frankfurt and Australia’s Hrustic on the edge of the area!
