Bet Now on The World Cup Final – France vs Croatia
Didier Deschamps’ France are amongst the favourites at the 2018 World Cup and they continue their quest to qualify for the round of 16 with a tie against Peru. Realistically, the South American side will be fighting it out for second place with Denmark. They will be aiming to test the French defence in this game.
France vs Peru Predictions
France are expected to reach the latter stages of the competition and they began with a narrow victory over Australia. Les Bleus can often be slow to get going and they didn’t make the breakthrough until the second half. They will be expected to collect three points against Peru and should have too much for Ricardo Gareca’s side.
Peru enjoyed plenty of possession and out-shot their opponents 6-3 during their opening encounter. They couldn’t find a way past Kasper Schmeichel and will be hoping for better luck against France. They should cause a few problems for their opponents but, inevitably, there is a gulf in quality in the final third.
France should take three points and secure their progress to the knock-out round. They are priced at 1.51 with Pinnacle.
France vs Peru Preview
France needed VAR to help them secure three points and although it wasn’t a swashbuckling start for Didier Deschamps’ side, they still found a way of winning the game. They will be expected to pick up three points once again.
Peru haven’t featured at the tournament in 36 years and would have preferred to have marked their return to the tournament with a victory. They fell short against Denmark but missed a penalty and looked lively in the final third. They will be looking to make up for those missed chances in this second Group C clash.
France vs Peru Both Teams to Score Prediction
Peru created numerous chances but couldn’t find that killer finish. They missed a penalty and they may suffer similar bad luck in front of goal here. It is likely that they will fail to breach the French back-line and 1.82 for Both Teams to Score? No with Sports Interaction looks decent value.
France vs Peru Over/Under Prediction
France have plenty of firepower but could find the Peruvian defence hard to break down. They didn’t score until the second half against Australia and they may have to be patient once again. Over 2.5 Goals is priced at 1.79 with Bodog and will be fancied by many bettors however Under 3.5 Goals is available at 1.36 and looks a much safer option in this Group C encounter.

Why should I bet on France against Peru?
Although France were far from convincing in their opening fixture against Australia they still came away with the three points that puts them pole position in the group. Peru were unlucky against Denmark, going down 1-0 while showing some positive signs after a 36 year wait for a return to the World Cup finals. The South Americans now need to push for a positive result that may give France more chances in an open match. Didier Deschamps’ men should just about win this one and Sports Interaction has France at 1.48 for the victory, which promises some marginal returns.
Peru have already been a big hit in this World Cup – from their thousands of fans enjoying a return to the big stage, to the attacking play shown in their opening game against Denmark. It is unlikely that they will sit back against France and although that tactic may cost them by the end of the match it does make for some interesting potential bets. The talismanic Guerrero looked very impressive when he came on against Denmark and if he starts against the French then 888Sport having him at 10.50 to score first seems very attractive.
Even if Peru do score first, most money will still be on France to go on to get the victory that would put them through to the round of 16 with a game to spare. With the talent and players at their disposal it would seem likely that Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé and the rest would not play as poorly again and not get the three points. Sports Interaction are offering an attractive 7.85 for France to win 2-1 – a result that takes into account the pressure Peru will put on the European side.
