Peru were the fifth and final team to qualify for the 2018 World Cup from the South American CONMEMOL qualifying group.
The last time Peru played in the World Cup was back in 1982 and they were given little chance of making it through the qualifiers this time around but caused a shock by finishing above Chile in the group.

Peru had a mixed bag of results during qualifying but most of their defeats came against the top teams including Brazil, Uruguay and Colombia as they won 7 of their 18 games. This may not seem like a big return but it was the same as both Argentina and Colombia.
Peru required a playoff win against New Zealand to reach Russia and having been held to a 0-0 in New Zealand, they won the home leg 2-0. This is not very convincing and Peru are the outsiders for this match, priced at 13/5 with Bet365.
Much like the Peruvians, Denmark were also forced into a playoff to qualify for the 2018 World Cup having finished second to Poland. At one stage it looked as though they were going to struggle to even get second but a great 4-0 win over the Poles set them on their way.
In the playoffs they were paired with Republic of Ireland who did well to hold them in the first leg in Denmark but their shortcomings were brutally exposed by Denmark in the second leg, who romped home with an impressive 5-1 win.Only once have Denmark gone beyond the group stage which was in 1998 but they are the favourites to get a win in this match and give their chances of reaching the knockout stages in Russia a huge boost.
. Peru vs Denmark Odds
Peru conceded more goals than any other team to come out of South American qualifying, having allowed 26 goals and the next worse was Uruguay with 20 goals. Denmark also conceded more goals than all but three of the other teams which finished in the top two places of the group stages in European qualifying.
Both teams to score is 19/20 with Bet365.

With that in mind and an entertaining game in prospect, Denmark to win and over 2.5 goals makes an intriguing bet at 13/5 with Bet365.
Much of the Peru defence is based in South America but they do have some players in the European leagues including Jefferson Farfan. He currently plays in Russia and will combine with Paolo Guerrero in attack.
Denmark will be looking to the creativity of midfielder Christian Eriksen to open the Peru defence and the Tottenham Hotspur man will be key to the Danes chances of winning this game.
This clearly shows that Denmark is a big favourite to win. But this is sports, and especially on the biggest events like World Cup there are a lot of unexpected results. Still, it would be the safest to put your money on Denmark.
