Argentina vs Peru prediction, odds & betting tips – 30/06/2024

🔥 Our Hot tip

Argentina to win-to-nil

Argentina have kept clean sheets in each of their last four games against Peru.

Argentina have already secured their qualification for the knockout stage at the 2024 Copa America following back-to-back wins against Canada and Chile but Lionel Scaloni's side will be hoping to maintain their 100% record when they take on Peru this Sunday.

A win for Peru is unlikely and even if they did manage to pull off a shock result they would be relying on Chile beating Canada by fewer goals than they beat Argentina to stand any chance of finishing as runners-up in Group A.

Peru preview: Lacking a goal threat

Peru vs Canada always looked like being a tight and tense match but the big turning point arrived just shy of the hour mark when Peru defender Miguel Araujo was shown a red card.

From that point on, there only ever looked like being one winner and in the 74th minute, Jonathan David fired home to secure Canada's first Copa America victory.

Predicted lineup: Gallese (GK), Zambrano, Callens, Santamaría, López, Flores, Cartagena, Peña, Quispe, Lapadula & Polo

Player to watch – Lautaro Martínez

Inter Milan's Lautaro Martínez has surely done enough in the opening two group games for Argentina to deserve a place in the starting lineup against Peru.

The 26-year-old, who has scored 26 times in 60 games for his country, came off the bench and scored against both Canada and Chile to help his team qualify for the knockout stage with a game to spare.

Has Martinez played his way into the starting lineup?

We're backing Martinez to start and score against Peru this weekend and that will put him in contention for the Golden Boot award at the 2024 Copa America.
