A 50/1 Super Rugby interest!
A 50/1 Super Rugby interest!

Super Rugby is a marathon and when things are a little bit tight financially you have to be selective with long term bets.  There are plenty of markets that I fancy but I also want to bet on the individual matches and need to ensure I keep some of my bankroll back to do that.

peru18Peru and Denmark open their respective World Cup 2018 campaigns in a Group C clash at the Mordovia Arena, Saransk on Saturday

 

 

 

Group C also includes France and Australia and you can read our outright preview for this quartet here.

 

Peru:

Peru qualified for the finals via the play off route. They finished fifth best in South America before seeing off New Zealand over 2 legs in the play offs. After winning 7 of 18 South American qualifiers, drawing 5 and losing 6 with 26 goals scored and 25 conceded this is their first World Cup finals since 1982. Their public have been celebrating wildly since qualification was secured and although they have bumped into some useful sides in the group stage draw, they are no mugs.

Peru’s last major tournament was Copa America 2016 and they made it to the quarter finals where they lost 1-0 to Columbia.

Friendly internationals this year have delivered 4 straight wins over Croatia (2-0), Iceland (3-1), Scotland (2-0) and Saudi Arabia (3-0) and most recently they played out a 0-0 draw with Sweden.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Pedro Gallese (Veracruz), Carlos Caceda (Deportivo Municipal), Jose Carvallo (UTC).

Defenders: Aldo Corzo (Universitario), Luis Advincula (Lobos Buap), Christian Ramos (Veracruz), Miguel Araujo (Alianza Lima), Alberto Rodriguez (Atletico Junior), Anderson Santamaria (Puebla), Miguel Trauco (Flamengo), Nilson Loyola (Melgar).

Midfielders: Renato Tapia (Feyenoord), Pedro Aquino (Leon), Yoshimar Yotun (Orlando City), Paolo Hurtado (Vitoria Guimaraes), Christian Cueva (Sao Paulo), Edison Flores (Aalborg), Andy Polo (Portland Timbers), Wilder Cartagena (Veracruz).

Forwards: Andre Carrillo (Benfica), Raul Ruidiaz (Morelia), Jefferson Farfan (Lokomotiv Moscow), Paolo Guerrero (Flamengo).

 

Denmark:

Denmark booked their place in these finals with a 5-1 aggregate win over Republic of Ireland in the play offs and all the goals came in the second leg in Dublin. In the qualifying group stage they finished as runners up, 5 points behind Poland, winning 6 of their 10 matches, drawing 2 and losing 2 with 20 goals scored and 8 conceded.

The Danes failed to qualify for the 2014 World Cup finals and in 2010 in South Africa they won 1 and lost 2 of their group matches to exit the tournament early. Denmark also failed to make it to the Euro 2016 finals.

Friendly international results since March 2018 comprise of a 1-0 win over Panama, 0-0 draws with Chile and Sweden and a 2-0 victory over Mexico.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Kasper Schmeichel (Leicester), Frederik Ronnow (Brondby), Jonas Lossl (Huddersfield).

Defenders: Simon Kjaer (Sevilla), Mathias Jorgensen (Huddersfield), Andreas Christensen (Chelsea), Henrik Dalsgaard (Brentford), Jannik Vestergaard (Borussia Monchengladbach), Jens Stryger Larsen (Udinese), Jonas Knudsen (Ipswich).

Midfielders: Christian Eriksen (Tottenham), Lasse Schone (Ajax), Michael Krohn-Dehli (Deportivo La Coruna), Thomas Delaney (Werder Bremen), William Kvist (FC Copenhagen), Lukas Lerager (Bordeaux).

Forwards: Andreas Cornelius (Atalanta), Kasper Dolberg (Ajax), Martin Braithwaite (Middlesbrough), Nicolai Jorgensen (Feyenoord), Pione Sisto (Celta Vigo), Viktor Fischer (FC Copenhagen), Yussuf Poulsen (RB Leipzig).

Match Result:

Peru 22/10

Draw 22/10

Denmark 27/20

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

 

Verdict:

With only very distant form in World Cup finals Peru represent something of an unknown quantity but I see them as potential upset material.

A chance is taken on Peru to come out on top with “draw no Bet” insurance which means your stake is returned if the game finishes all square.

 

Bets: Peru draw no Bet at 12/10
