Our prediction for this match:
Peru played Germany only the one time, losing to them in the 1970 World Cup. This match will take place at the WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim. Germany is playing France in the opening match of League A, Group 1 which means they are free to play a friendly while France is playing against the third team in their group, Netherlands. Peru are hoping to have a good game after they didn’t get past the group stage in Russia. They also need some matches under the belt ahead of next years Copa America. However, Germany will see it as a must to win this home game to further raise their level of play, after their debacle in Russia. Peru was in great form before their two defeats in the World Cup, with five wins and two draws. In fact, their last defeat before Russia was in 2016 by Brazil. They will not roll over against Germany who still should have enough to beat them.
