TODAY'S BEST BET | OCTOBER 14
We’re heading to the South American World Cup qualifiers for today’s best bet as Argentina look to continue their sensational run of form when they host struggling Peru in Buenos Aires.
Argentina crushed Uruguay 3-0 earlier this week to extend their unbeaten run to 24 straight games, with Lionel Messi becoming the first South American to scored 80 international goals.
Following on from Copa America triumph over great rivals Brazil, Argentina have now won nine of their last 10 matches and another victory here would almost certainly see them advance into another World Cup.
Argentina will be extremely confident of claiming all three points once more – they have never lost a home match to Peru in their history across 22 matches, while they also haven’t lost against Peru anywhere in World Cup qualifying since 1985.
For some added value, we’ll be backing Argentina to win to nil.
Argentina have leaked just two goals in their last five home World Cup qualifiers, keeping three clean sheets in the process.
Additionally, Peru have failed to score in three of their last five away World Cup qualifying matches, while as mentioned, their away record against Argentina is dismal.
Peru don’t tend to get on the scoresheet when they lose – indeed, they’ve failed to score in seven of their last eight defeats, including a horror 1-0 loss to traditional whipping boys Bolivia earlier this week.
All signs point to another comfortable win for the Argentinians at home here.
- Argentina are unbeaten in their last 24 matches
- Argentina have won nine of their last 10 matches
- Argentina have kept a clean sheet in seven of their last 10 matches
- Argentina have never lost a home match vs Peru in 22 meetings
- Peru are coming off a 1-0 loss to Bolivia this week
- Peru have failed to score in seven of their last eight defeats
