Both Peru and Denmark needed to come through play-offs to qualify for Russia this summer and neither are likely to trouble the World Cup Winner Odds, although they could serve up an entertaining clash when they meet at the Mordovia Arena for their opening Group C match on Saturday evening…

Peru v Denmark
Both Teams To Score
@ 21 / 20
Peru v Denmark Odds
Peru are gearing up for their first World Cup since 1982 and it has been a rollercoaster ride for them as they started the CONMEBOL section of qualifying in dreadful fashion before sneaking into an inter-continental play-off, where they duly dispatched of New Zealand to book their spot in Russia.
They have been progressing nicely since Ricardo Gareca took over as head coach though, reaching the semi-finals of the Copa America and qualifying for these World Cup finals, so they are not a team to be underestimated.
The Peruvians are unbeaten in 13 internationals since November 2016, so they could offer value at 9/4 in the Peru v Denmark Odds, although it is the fact that they have scored in 10 of those 13 that catches our eye this weekend.
Both teams to score is a stand-out 21/20 with Betway and it is a bet that paid out in nine of Peru’s final eleven CONMEBOL qualifiers, and their attacking threat has been bolstered by the news that Paolo Guerrero’s doping ban has been overturned, with the national team’s all-time record goalscorer ready to take his place in the side on Saturday.
Denmark Start Favourites In The Match Betting
It is Denmark who start as 7/5 favourites to win this Group C encounter, despite the fact they finished second to Poland in their section of European qualifying. The Danes have only lost two of their last 17 internationals and it is the draw (11/5) which is most appealing in the outright market this weekend, while the score draw is 7/2 with Bet 365.
Where will the goals come from? Christian Eriksen has been Denmark’s talisman as he scored a hat-trick in the 5-1 win over Republic of Ireland in their qualifying play-off and he scored 11 goals in the qualifiers. In fact, the Tottenham midfielder has now scored 16 goals in his last 18 international appearances and he is 13/2 to be first goalscorer with Unibet.
