World Cup Peru
It would be a remarkable preparation for La Blanquirroja should they put up a masterclass performance against Alex McLeish’s men

Peru will be looking forward to another morale-boosting win when they welcome Scotland to Estadio Nacional de Lima for their international friendly on Wednesday.

The World Cup-bound Peruvians come into this game off the back of outstanding victories over European sides - Croatia and Iceland and it appears that the South Americans could as well continue their winning streak under Ricardo Gareca against their Scottish counterparts.

Following their impressive feats during the qualifiers, Bet365 tips them as clear favourites in this clash at (1.90).

Despite winning Hungary 1-0 in March on the road, which followed their loss at the hands of Costa Rica on their turf by the same score line, the Scots are tagged underdogs at odds of (9.50).

A stalemate, which only featured in just one of their three outings, is available at a juicy (2.25).

Since McLeish’s men have failed to find the back of the net in four of their last six intercontinental friendly games, they will be toothless in this showdown against a better team.

Thus, the Peruvians should be backed to keep a clean sheet here at odds of (1.61) with the same betting firm.

The last encounter between these two yielded three or more goals. It threfore won’t be out of place backing  a similar result here considering the hosts’ lethal attack. This is available at a mouth-watering (2.05).

Though Scotland have nothing to play for here, the South Americans will be hoping to make a statement of intent in this duel as they prepare for the  World Cup finals in Russia. Hence, the home team can be backed to win to nil at odds of (1.83).

What seems rewarding in this encounter is backing an outcome that sees two or more goals scored in the first 45 minutes of this duel quoted by Bet365 at a chunky (3.00).
