The Peru vs Ecuador CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers match will be this Friday, June 7, 2013 (7:00 PM PST) at the Estadio Nacional in Lima. In this match, Peru will play for their survival against a very difficult visitor like Ecuador. With 11 points, Peru is currently in 7th place, where a win is crucial if they want to remain in a close fight for CONMEBOL’s wild card seed. Ecuador has been outstanding thus far, as they are in 2nd place with 20 points; 4 points below the leaders Argentina, and 5 more than the wild-card seed.
Peru has been on the rise as they have not lost in their last 5 matches, including a win in their last game against Chile. Friday’s game is a great opportunity to obtain another 3 points to keep alive in the fight of the wild-card seed. The team coach ed by Sergio Arkarian has done great at home as they have only lost one match. With a win against Ecuador, Peru could move up one position, but most importantly, they would be within a win from a World Cup seed.
Ecuador is on the way to another World Cup; they are in 2nd place, and they have one of the most dynamic offenses in the qualifiers. They will visit the difficult Estadio Nacional with the opportunity that a win will put them just a point away from the leader Argentina. Like Peru, Ecuador is also on a great non-losing streak; they are undefeated for 6 games. Ecuador will use the speedy striker Christian Bermudez and Joao Rojas in their attack to try and bolster scoring opportunities.
