Argentina vs Peru Team News:

Argentina team news: Fellow striker Gonzalo Higuain and midfielder Javier Pastore are the other big names set to miss out. Lionel Messi is the man to watch for in this home match. This Barcelona super star, as has been recorded various times, by various media outlets, is clearly not the same man for his country as he is for his club.  However, he's still one of the best players on the planet and fully deserves the respect he earns.  He might soon be overshadowed by Paulo Dybala, but that day has not yet come and this is still his team to play.  Four goals and two assists sees him lead in both categories in the gauntlet of a group in the region.

Peru Team news: Ricardo Gareca would be missing centre back player Christian Ramos after he was sent off in the match against Ecuador last month. This leaves the team with a big gap to fill, and they will have to try to fit a round hole in square peg in this match. The attacker of the team is a budding star in the Danish league for AaB, and he has also shown to be quite the burgeoning threat in CONMEBOL. Five goals in the cycle so far has him among the top producers of goals so far, and he would be a constant trouble to Argentina throughout the 90 minutes of the game play.

Argentina vs Peru Match preview: 

Peru has not shown a great scoring record, winning three out of eight times so far, but it has not been bad either. They are not really big outsiders here, and a draw would not be a shock at all in the match.

Argentina should rigidly have already wrapped up qualification same as Brazil have, but now have to find themselves having to beat Peru. The form book does not make a good reading for Argentina. The 11 match streak against Peru, held by Argentina, might be up for challenge in World Cup, where the odds of a draw are likely.
