Our match prediction:
Venezuela will be looking to put an end to their four-game losing run in the World Cup qualifiers when they take on Peru at Estadio Nacional de Lima on Friday. Los Llaneros are low on confidence ahead of the trip to the Peruvian capital and that could prove to be the biggest problem for the visitors in the upcoming qualifier. La Blanquirroja suffered a 3-0 loss to Brazil in their last qualifying match, but seeing that Ricardo Gareca’s men defeated Paraguay in their last home fixture in the process, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Friday’s football clash. Venezuela do not seem to be at the top of their game at the moment and seeing that Peru attacker Claudio Pizarro has recovered in time to face los Llaneros, home win appears on the cards. When the two teams met at 2015 Copa America Peru recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Venezuela.
