Our prediction for this World Cup 2026 match:
Sparkles will be flying when Chile and Peru go head to head at Estadio Monumental David Arellano in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers round 3. La Roja are eyeing their first win of the process and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Los Incas. All Javier Altamirano, Nayel Mehssatou, Juan Delgado, and Benjamin Kuscevic have been ruled out with injuries, while experienced duo Arturo Vidal – Alexis Sanchez made the cut.
The Peruvians, on the other hand, produced a fine display against Brazil, but the Selecao eventually scored a late winner to pick up all three points from the match. Peru and Chile seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be veteran forward Paolo Guerrero, who helped LDU Quito book their place in the Copa Libertadores final.
