Australia vs Peru World Cup 2018: Date and Time
As we’ve just mentioned, Australia and Peru will play each other as their third and final match of the group stages of the competition. The game will be played in the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi, which has a 41,220 spectator capacity and will also be the location for one of the quarter-final matches.
Australia vs Peru will take place on Tuesday the 26th of June, and kick off will be at 16:00 PM (CET).
By the time this match is played, both teams will have already played two matches each in the tournament, and their previous performances are sure to influence the betting odds closer to the time. What’s more, this match presents the two teams with their final chances of bagging a win, and ultimately could impact their chances of advancing out of the group stages.
Australia vs Peru: Group C Odds to Advance
Australia and Peru belong to Group C in the World Cup 2018, which also includes France and Denmark. Whilst neither team in this match are favourites to progress into the Round of 16, Peru are considered more likely to advance over Australia.
France are the favourites to advance from group C and we’d find it very surprising if they didn’t. Denmark should, statistically, be the next most likely to advance and therefore occupying the second place to progress, but there is also a chance they could be pipped to the post by Peru.
This leaves this match slightly inconsequential. Whilst it would be rude to say that a win is not important to either team, by this stage in the competition it’s likely that Australia will already be facing elimination, and Peru’s fate will be clinched by however Denmark perform. That being said, if Peru and Denmark are facing off for second place in the group, Peru will be determined to score as many goals as possible as goal difference could be the clincher.
Australia vs Peru Winner Betting Odds
At the moment, the betting odds on Peru vs Australia show that Peru are the clear favourites to win:
- Peru to win: 13/11
- Australia to win: 5/2
- Draw: 21/10
These odds show that the bookmakers think a Peruvian win is certainly the most likely outcome in this match. There is a small amount of value in placing this bet, but backing a draw may be a more appealing and lucrative option.
Given that it’s likely that both teams will be playing knowing that they’re not advancing, we think a draw is entirely possible. That being said, we would wait till closer the time to place a wager on this match, so that you can assess how the rest of the Group C matches have unfolded.
