France vs Peru
2nd round in group C and France will face Peru at Ekaterinburg Arena.
France started really unconvincing against Australia, but succeeded to win 2:1 in a strange match with two penalties and a winning goal after using VAR technology. I doubt France will repeat such a bad performance once again and Didier Deschamps will make what it's needed to make the things look better in French squad. Maybe he will make changes in the starting line-up and players like Giroud and Matuidi can start the match from the 1st minute. Sidibe is also a possible option for the starting line-up instead of Pavard, whose performance against Australia was not on good level.
Peru started with undeserved loss against Denmark after so many missed chances during the match including a penalty-kick. Paolo Guerrero is expected to start from the beginning of the match as a striker and Farfan to play on the wing. I expect them to be aggressive and try to take something from France to keep their chances alive, but it's possible only with a win. It's hardly expected for me Peru to be capable of winning against France, draw is their max if the luck is on their side, but I doubt it will happen.
I believe France will make what it's needed to perform on totally different level in comparison with their first match in the group and will grab another three points, which will practically mean securing a place in the 1/8 finals! We saw how hard is to predict the final results in the matches till the start of the WC, that's why I will change the strategy and will only point winners, without looking for goal handicaps or overs/unders and so on! Not now..
