Key Players To Watch Out For in Peru vs Denmark :[spacer height=”30px”]

Yoshi Yotun:[spacer height=”30px”]

Orlando city midfielder Yotun is expected to sit in the heart of the midfield of this Peru side- a position he plays to great effect for the MLS side. The 28 year old has scored 3 goals in 10 appearances for Orlando in 2018 and his ability to turn defense into attack from his role just in front of the back four could be vital to Peru’s chances of finding the net. He is also responsible for providing defensive stability and fill the gaps in midfield by plugging out passing lanes.[spacer height=”30px”]

Paolo Guerrero:[spacer height=”30px”]

All Peruvian hopes are on the veteran striker’s shoulders. He was on course to miss the World Cup due to an extended drugs ban but the football world collectively appealed to overturn the ban and he was cleared very late before the cup to take part.[spacer height=”30px”]

Guerrero is expected to lead the nation from the front and it is likely that any fruitful attack will be centrally designed towards the striker. The 34 year old striker scored 21 goals in all competitions for Flamengo this season and will be extra motivated to take Peru through to the next round as this will be his last World Cup.[spacer height=”30px”]

[spacer height=”30px”]Predicted Line Up:[spacer height=”30px”]

Peru are expected to play a 4-2-3-1 with Gallese starting between the posts. Trauco, Ramos, Rodriguez and Advincula make up the back four. Yatun and Tapia are expected to play as holding midfielders and Carillo, Cueva, and Farfan are going to play as LW, CAM and RW respectively with Guerrero playing as the lone striker.[spacer height=”30px”]

Key Players To Watch Out For in Peru vs Denmark:[spacer height=”30px”]

Andreas Christensen:[spacer height=”30px”]

The Chelsea center back is thought to be future leader for his country and is currently a revered talent who managed to put David Luiz out of the Chelsea team. While he has established himself at club level it is time for him to replicate his club form with the country.[spacer height=”30px”]

He will mainly be responsible to keep Pablo Guerrero quiet and shun out any danger caused by the veteran striker. Christensen is considered the leader of the Danish defense and will look to keep a clean sheet against for his country in the Peru vs Denmark clash[spacer height=”30px”]


Christian Eriksen:[spacer height=”30px”]

Denmark’s star player and by far the most recognizable one. He has already made his mark with Tottenham in the Premier League it is now important for him to do the same with his country. It was his hattrick that helped Denmark into this World Cup.[spacer height=”30px”]

Eriksen will look to be the team’s creative hub and run things in attack for Denmark and also nurture the younger players in the squad and becoming the best leader he can be. If Eriksen is on form then it could mean lights out for Peru’s defense.[spacer height=”30px”]

Predicted Line Up:[spacer height=”30px”]

Denmark are most likely to start with a 4-3-3 for Peru vs Denmark with Schmeichel in goal and Christensen leading the defense consisting of Dalsgaard, Kjaer and Larsen. Kvist, Delaney and Erkisen will for the midfield trio and Sisto, Poulsen and Jorgensen will be the front three.[spacer height=”30px”]

Predictions:[spacer height=”30px”]

Peru vs Denmark a very tricky encounter to predict with both sides on an unbeaten 15 game streak and Peru have kept 7 clean sheets from their last 9 and the Danes have kept 6 from their last 8.[spacer height=”30px”]

Since, neither of the managers will want to lose the Peru vs Denmark match a cautious approach could be seen by the managers of the teams. Christian Eriksen will be the difference between the two sides for the Peru vs Denmark clash and we predict a 1-0 victory in favour of the Danes.
