Will Peru make it two wins out of two in this international window?
On Wednesday, Alex Valera was the only scorer as la Blanquirroja beat Paraguay 1-0 at Estadio Nacional del Perú.
Los Incas enjoyed unprecedented success, certainly in modern times, under Ricardo Gareca, qualifying for World Cup 2018 and reaching the Copa América Final the following summer.
However, he’s now left, following a disagreement with the federation, so Juan Reynoso certainly has big shoes to fill.
Bolivia meantime haven’t qualified for a World Cup since USA ‘94, winning just 33 of 161 competitive games since then.
Amazingly, la Verde haven’t won a competitive match played outside La Paz since Copa América 2015.
Given that, Peru are big favourites to win this one in Lima.
