Peru have put together a strong set of results in World Cup warm-up matches and may be good value to get the better of Sweden in Gothenburg on Saturday.
Los Incas have rattled off four straight wins in international friendlies this year, scoring 10 times and conceding only once.
Their hosts have claimed just one victory in five such matches in 2018, so 2/1 for the South Americans looks a steal for our Sweden vs Peru betting tips.
A Look At Sweden’s Betting Odds
Sweden battled bravely to secure a place at Russia 2018, edging out Holland for second place behind France in their qualifying group and then upsetting Italy in a play-off.
However, Janne Andersson’s side have since stuttered as they prepare to appear at their first World Cup since 2006, sorely missing former talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Having lost to Chile and Romania in March, the Blue and Yellows didn’t manage a single shot on target when drawing 0-0 with neighbours Denmark in Solna recently.
Striker Isaac Kiese-Thelin had the best chance of that game late on, but could only hit his attempt over the bar.
A Look At Peru’s Betting Odds
Peru will end a 36-year absence from the World Cup after finishing fifth in the South American qualifying section and then beating New Zealand 2-0 on aggregate in a play-off.
Los Incas built on that by accounting for Croatia 2-0 and Iceland 3-1 in March friendly matches in the USA.
Ricardo Gareca’s side maintained the momentum with a 2-0 home win over Scotland and then brushed aside Saudi Arabia 3-0 in Switzerland last Sunday.
Former Bayern Munich and Hamburg forward Paolo Guerrero bagged a brace in the most recent triumph and 9/2 he nets first here completes our Sweden vs Peru betting predictions.
SWEDEN 0-0 Denmark
Saudi Arabia 0-3 PERU – Andre Carrillo, Paolo Guerrero (2)
