Peru - Paraguay betting tip & odds comparison 30.03.2022

Betting Tip for matchday 18 of the 2020-2022 WC-Quali. South America between Peru and Paraguay. The game will be played at Estadio Nacional (Lima, Peru) on 30.03.2022 at 01:30.

As the curtains close on the South American chapter of FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers, one slot remains to be confirmed. 5th-placed Peru occupy final spot, 1point above Colombia and 2 points above Chile, who both still harbor hopes of qualifying should Peru falter. Victory for Peru against Paraguay in this final group game will send the hosts to Qatar for the big global tournament. Paraguay are already out of contention for qualifying, but that does not mean that they will willingly lose this game, if their victory in their last game is anything to go by. We will promote Odibet and Cyberbet betting sites as we preview this Peru vs Paraguay game. You can read about the best betting sites in Africa on our page.

PERU

Peru will be feeling so close yet so far in their bid to qualify for the World Cup to be held later this year. They suffered a heart-breaking 1-0 loss to Uruguay in their last match, which could have given them the points they need to seal 5th spot. They now have to go out and get the coveted 3 points at home against 8th-placed Paraguay.

The good news for Peru is that they are unbeaten in the last 8 head-to-head games against Paraguay (W7 D1). La Blanquirroja also have an impressive record when playing at home, having won 4 and drawn 3 of their last 7 home games. Add to the fact that Paraguay have nothing to play for, except maybe pride, Peru will feel that victory is very possible here.

PARAGUAY

8th-placed Paraguay cannot make it to Qatar 2022 as they have only 16 points, 5 points behind the 5th and final qualification spot with only 1 game to go. Nevertheless, they remain a dangerous opponent as they showed in their last match where they beat Qatar-bound Ecuador 3-1. With little pressure on their shoulders, they are free to play an attacking game that will provide some consolation for missing out on the World Cup.

The victory over Ecuador last time out ended a 7-game winless run for Los Guaranies (D 2 L5) without scoring a goal. Their weak attack is one of the main reasons why they will miss out on the World Cup as they managed to score only 12 goals from 17 qualifying games. The defense was no better, shipping in 24 goals in the process.

Our Betting Tips

With all to play for and playing at home, Peru will be going for nothing short of a win here. They are unbeaten at home in the last 7 games (W4 D3). Peru also have an excellent record against Paraguay in recent games (W7 D1). Paraguay will have little motivation to play for a win in this match. As a result, we feel Peru have what it takes to get the victory in this match.

TIP 1: Peru Win @ 1.53

Peru’s defense has been quite mean in the last few games, with only 3 games conceded in their last 5 games. 4 of Peru’s last 5 games ended with less than 3 total goals each. With Paraguay’s attack also not firing much, we expect this encounter to produce only a few goals. Hence, our 2nd football betting strategy is Under 2.5 Goals. Find out how we make our picks from our betting strategies page.

TIP 2: Under 2.5 Goals @ 1.63
