Australia vs Peru Preview
Australia were predicted to finish bottom of Group C but they could still qualify for the knock-out round. They have taken just a single point from their opening two matches but have been impressive in each of those encounters. Bert Van Marwijk’s side not only look well-organised but they also have pace in wide areas and can hurt the opposition. They will be desperate for three points in this game and hope that France hammer Denmark. Mile Jedinak has been the hero so far with the experienced midfielder keeping his cool from the penalty spot. They don’t win many games at the World Cup but will quietly fancy their chances of beating Peru.
Peru have been desperately unlucky so far. Ricardo Gareca’s side have been exciting to watch and they pour forward in numbers but their end product has been sorely lacking. They have failed to find the net in 180 minutes of football which included a penalty miss against Denmark. They will be hoping to end on a high and pick up their first World Cup victory since 1978. They have already been eliminated but will be aiming to collect three points in this tie. The travelling Peruvian fans will be hoping for something to celebrate ahead of a long trip home.
This could be a terrific spectacle for the neutral. Australia need the points and will relentlessly attack Peru, whereas Los Incas are likely to play with plenty of freedom and width. They have nothing to lose and will relish the opportunity to hit them on the counter-attack. The Socceroos have netted in six of their last seven World Cup matches and should be able to find a way through. They haven’t managed to keep a clean sheet in their first two games and are liable to concede once again. Both Teams to Score? Yes is available at 1.80 with 888Sport.

Head to Head
This is the first meeting between these two teams.
Aaron Mooy – Mooy wasn’t included in the squad against Iraq due to a fall-out with Ange Postecoglu and although Australia qualified, he was badly missed. He is influential in the centre of the park and is one of the better players in the team. He has fantastic vision and can find team-mates with ease. He could make the difference for the Socceroos.
Paolo Guerrero – The captain is back. He is absolutely essential to Peru’s attacking play and his goals helped them secure fifth place in the South American qualifying group. He has a knack for finding the right positions and he should be able to score a couple of goals during the early stages of the competition.
