Brazil vs Peru by Marlo
Columbia and Brazil are the powerhouses of their group along with the two lesser teams in the form of Venezuela and Peru.
Considering the clash between them finishes in a draw the winner of the group would most likely come down to goal difference.
Brazil will host Peru in their first game and they are big favourites to do the business.
Led by Neymar the expectation is high to undo the debacle at the last World Cup where they were thrashed by eventual winners, Germany.
This Brazilian team has now won their last 10 games and their have been few thrashings in there as the seem to be approaching games in a more cautious manner. In their last game against Honduras many would have been burned heading the Asian Handicap route when a win to nil would have paid greater dividends.
It is for that reason I want to avoid making a similar mistake here. Wanted to take Brazil -1.5 @ 1.88 but I'm slightly put off by recent outings and would hate to fall a goal short.
A win to nil and Brazil win and under 3.5 goals pays the same price @ 2.1 and in light of this I think it is marginally better than asking the Brazilians to win by 2. Best price of 2.2 for same selection at Betway and if you prefer even more security you can have Brazil and Under 4.5 @ 8/13 with Betfair.
Peru should be looking to damage limitation and I feel they may set up to defend from the start and we must take that into consideration.
