Our prediction for this World Cup 2026 match:
Bolivia will look to put an end to their four-game losing run in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers when they take on fellow strugglers Peru on Thursday evening. La Verde failed to spoil Paraguay’s party at Estadio Defensores del Chaco in their last group game, but they are surely capable of matching La Blanquirroja at Estadio Hernando Siles at the altitude of 3581 meters. Keep in mind that Bolivar midfielder Gabriel Villamil is one yellow card away from suspension.
The Peruvians, on the other hand, are eyeing their first win of the process. Considering that Paolo Guerrero and co. will go for a victory as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. As for the away team, Genoa striker Gianluca Lapadula returns to the squad, while the likes of Raul Ruidiaz, Chistofer Gonzales, and Anderson Santamaria have been omitted.
Highlighted Team (Peru):
Peru national team has been competing at the international stage since 1927 when they played their first ever match against Uruguay. Over the course of their history, La Blanquirroja have formed long-standing rivalries with Chile and Ecuador while 1970s brought the team a worldwide recognition during the period that is to this date considered the most successful in Peruvian football.
Teofilo Cubillas, the team’s top scorer with 26 goals to his name is considered Peru’s greatest player helped the team qualify for three World Cups and win the Copa America in 1975. Peru are the two-time champion of the tournament, who came close to lifting the Copa America trophy again in recent years, finishing third in 2011 and 2015 respectively.
La Blanquirroja are managed by Ricardo Gareca commonly referred to as the Tiger who will lead his team to 2016 Copa America Centenario looking to win Peru its first trophy at a major tournament since 1982.
