Saudi Arabia vs Peru Predictions

Since beating New Zealand 2-0 in the second leg of their World Cup playoff tie, Peru have won all three subsequent friendly matches scoring at least twice in each match. The South American team were also last beaten in a game back in November 2016 when two second half goals netted by Brazil condemned them two a 2-0 defeat in a World Cup qualifier. In contrast, there has been much more inconsistency regarding recent Saudi performances with just three victories earned from their last nine matches. 2-0 and 4-1 defeats by Oman and Iraq respectively within the last six months do not inspire much confidence although they have beaten Greece and Algeria this year. With Peru winning their last four fixtures by at least two clear goals, the first of our Saudi Arabia vs Peru predictions is for a Peru win via a two-goal margin.


Anytime Goalscorer Tips

While Peru have been securing fairly comfortable victories in their last four games, there has been a valuable contribution from veteran striker Jefferson Farfan as he netted in three of those encounters. The former Schalke forward has also helped Lokomotiv Moscow in winning the Russian Premier League last term, netting 10 goals in 22 league appearances. Farfan scored in Peru’s recent 2-0 win against Scotland and appeals as a decent anytime scorer tip in this contest. Therefore, the second of our Saudi Arabia vs Peru betting tips is for Farfan to score anytime.


Correct Score Predictions

With just two goals conceded in their last seven matches, the Peru defence could be described as fairly reliable at the moment while they have also secured three recent victories via 2-0 scorelines. Although Saudi Arabia are capable of registering clean sheets, they can be vulnerable when playing some of the better international teams as happened with Belgium, Portugal and Italy breaching their defence at least twice in recent months. Peru could prove to be a better team than suggested in some World Cup predictions, and so our correct score tip to complete these Saudi Arabia vs Peru predictions is for a 2-0 Peru victory.
