Following a dismal goal-less draw between these sides at Wellington in the first leg of this World Cup qualifying play-off, a straight win on Wednesday evening will be enough to send the victor through to the 2018 World Cup.

New Zealand were under the cosh from the very start in front of a sell-out Westpac Stadium with the home side presented with an opportunity to secure a last-gasp win but for Ryan Thomas to squander the chance to make it 1-0 with four minutes left on the clock.

Nevertheless the All Whites will certainly be the happier of the two sides having avoided an away goal despite the visitors going close on a couple of occasions. Indeed the hero of the game was home keeper Stefan Marinovic who managed to hold the Peruvians off until the final whistle although he will be in for a tough time in South America this week.

A grand total of 112 places separate these two sides in the official FIFA World Rankings and Peru will head into the return match as overwhelming favourites with the bookmakers currently going 1/4 on the home side. The hosts have lost just two of their nine home qualifiers – one of these to Brazil – and they enjoyed draws with Colombia and Argentina as well as a win over Uruguay, therefore the massive task awaiting New Zealand is very clear.

An away goal could prove crucial, however we don’t fancy the visitors’ chances on this occasion and we’ll be backing Peru to be winning at half time and full time at odds of 3/4 with Ladbrokes Free Bets
