Our football match prediction:
Olimpiyskiy Stadion Fisht will host Tuesday’s football game between Australia and Peru. The Peruvians failed to book their place in the last 16 of the FIFA World Cup, whilst the Socceroos are still in the race for a place in the knockout stages. The Australians are likely to leave their hearts on the field in their last group game and seeing that the South American side head into the match with the lack of confidence, we are tempted to put our money on Bert van Marwijk’s troops. A man to watch in the Australian team will be Aaron Mooy, who is enjoying a season to remember. Peru key attacker Jefferson Farfan has been struggling to find his best form at the showpiece tournament in Russia and, taking everything into account, we predict the Socceroos are going to pick up all three points from the Olimpiyskiy Stadion Fisht clash.
