The Peru national team match against the Venezuela in 6e ronde of the CONMEBOL 2026 World Cup Qualification on Tuesday, November 21, 2023 will be held at the Estadio Nacional de Lima Stadium, Lima.
Although Peru have a fairly good record in the Copa America (reaching the semifinals in 4 of the last 5 editions), they usually perform poorly in the South American region of the World Cup qualifiers. Since 1986, Peru has participated in the World Cup only once (2018).
In qualifying for the 2026 World Cup, Peru has big ambitions, especially because South America is allocated 6.5 places in the final tournament (up 2 from the 2022 World Cup qualifiers), and there are only 10 national teams in this region.
However, after 5 matches, Peru was even the team with the worst performance. They only got 1 point from a draw with Peru in the opening match and have not scored a goal at all.
A few days ago, Peru lost 0-2 to Bolivia, which is considered the weakest team in the region. This defeat made coach Juan Reynoso’s position shaky, and if Peru cannot win this match even though they are playing at home, it is likely that the 53 year old coach will be fired.
Venezuela, on the other hand, took many by surprise. Despite being considered a weak team (like Bolivia), they are currently in 4th place (before the 6th match), a position sufficient to qualify for the World Cup – a feat they have never achieved before. In the last match, Venezuela drew with Ecuador, and they see their next away match against Peru as an opportunity to get full points.
Even if you have ambitions, turning them into reality is another challenge. Venezuela still looks like a temporary phenomenon and needs more time to prove whether they are truly strong enough to compete fairly for a place in the World Cup.
One weakness that Venezuela needs to overcome is away form. In nearly 15 years, the only home team they have beaten in World Cup qualifying is Paraguay (2 times). In the last 5 matches in Peru in the 21st century, Venezuela has never won (lost 3 times).
Considering Peru is playing below average but is still considered a “strong team”, this is quite positive. It is estimated that Peru will again show its class as a great team, so victory seems to be on Peru’s side.
