Tip Peru - Denmark
Peru are returning to the World Cup for the first time since 1982 while Denmark missed the 2014 edition and are making a return. As they head to the first match of the Group, Peru have had a fine run, winning five of their last six matches, and on a 15 – match unbeaten run that has seen them win 10 of those. In their last five matches, Peru have scored 10 goals and conceded just one, a case for their strength in defence. Peru have kept seven clean sheets in 10 matches and are unbeaten in the last eight away from home. They have scored in 12 on their last 15 matches and hope to start with a bang on their return to the global showpiece, having managed just four wins in the 15 World Cup matches they have played. They failed to register a win in their last six matches at the World Cup. Denmark on the other hand, will be playing their 17th World Cup game, seeking a ninth win. In the last 11 World Cup matches they have won four, but have eight wins overall. They head to this match unbeaten in four matches and with four straight clean sheets. They have two wins, two draws and a loss in their last five matches, scoring five goals and conceding three. The Danes have lost just two of their last 17 matches and scored in six of the last 10 matches.

Conclusion Peru - Denmark
This will be the first meeting in the history of the two nations and both make returns to the World Cup, Peru having missed a number while Denmark missed the Brazil showpiece. Peru have had a great run ahead of this game and they should be confident enough to take on the Danes, who are by no means pushovers. Both teams have been good defensively heading to this match, going by the number of clean sheets but at this stage things may change. Denmark are more experienced at the World Cup stage but Peru have mastered the art of playing as a compact team. A draw seems possible in this game.
