Last month’s 1-0 win over Mexico is the United States’ only victory in their last five outings (three defeats, all friendlies), though Peru haven’t fared much better of late.
They’ve scored just four times in their last five matches, two of which came in their only win—a 2-0 win against Australia—the other four of those games ended in defeat.
Ricardo Gareca’s side were on a 15-match unbeaten run prior to that but have surrendered form lately, particularly losing their way in defence. Peru conceded an average of 0.53 goals per game during that streak, but that ratio has more than doubled to 1.2 (six goals in five games) since.
United States vs. Peru Prediction
The hosts edge an advantage with the bookmakers for Tuesday’s home fixture at 6/4 (2.50), but there’s really nothing to separate these two sides, with Peru on almost identical 7/4 (2.75) odds.
The U.S. beat Los Incas in 2015—only their second meeting this century—but they look to have regressed in confidence since then, while Peru have largely improved (recent run aside).
It’s so difficult tell the two teams apart, in fact, that our betting experts predict both United States and Peru teams will score in Connecticut on 16/10/2018 and share the spoils, priced at 9/4 (3.25).
