Our match prediction:
Uruguay enjoyed a strong start to the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, taking nine points from first four fixtures, which is an excellent achievement considering that Edinson Cavani missed the first two games and Luis Suarez was suspended for all four. The Barcelona star made a timely re-turn against Brazil, helping La Celeste come from two goals behind to earn a 2-2 draw in Recife, with the PSG forward also getting on the scoresheet. Buoyed by the great comeback, Uruguay will be looking to make another important step towards the tournament finals by defeating Peru. La Blanquirroja have been on a major downtrend since defying predictions to win the third place at the 2015 Copa America, and they are in a very difficult position at the moment. Not only did Peru take mere four points from first five games, but they will now be without star players Farfan, Vargas, Balon and Zambrano, so we cannot see them getting anything from this game.
Highligted Player (Luis Suarez):
Luis Suarez is a controversial footballer who plays for La Liga side Barcelona as a striker. The Uruguayan forward moved to Europe in 2006, signing a deal with Groningen. After scoring 10 goals in 27 league appearances for the club in the 2006/2007 Eredivisie campaign, he joined Ajax at the end of the season. The prolific striker scored no less than 81 goals in 110 appearances for Ajax and, as a result, Liverpool chiefs decided to sign him on 31 January 2011. Suarez became the club’s most expensive signing and he was producing thrilling performances with the Anfield outfit between 2011 and 2014. Liverpool were on the verge of winning the 2013/2014 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and they eventually finished the season in second place in the standings. In 2014 Suarez joined Barcelona and he was the top scorer in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign. He won the 2013/2014 Premier League Golden Boot as well and in 2011 he clinched the Copa America trophy with Uruguay.
