There is no room for error in the peruvian team, which this Thursday is obliged to win at home to Bolivia for matchday 13 of the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. A defeat or draw would take him away from next year’s World Cup dream. Meet those chosen by Ricardo Gareca to be from the start in front of the ‘green’.
In the arch will be Pedro Gallese. The ‘Octopus’ goes through a great present in the Orlando City of the MLS, where every week he appears as a figure with amazing saves. What’s more, he appeared on the prestigious list of the best goalkeepers in the world today. With Peru he also breaks it and is the undisputed one.
Luis Advíncula It will be the right back. But the big question is in the central rear. The ‘Tiger’ has to choose between Carlos Zambrano and Christian Ramos: the ‘Shadow’ goes with more possibilities. The other defense will be Alexander Callens, of good performance with the Peruvian team since the last Copa América.
As a left back I would go Miguel Trauco, which would win the arm wrestling to Marcos López. Both were alternating, according to the rival, for a long time. The former attacks better than it defends, while the latter defends better than it attacks. Good competition for the position in the ‘bicolor’.
Renato Tapia will mark his return to Peru’s midfield. This after overcoming an injury that did not allow him to be in the previous triple date of the South American Qualifiers. Close to him would be Christofer Gonzáles, who will replace the suspended Yoshimar Yotún (returns to Venezuela for a visit).
A little later it will align Sergio Pena. The skilled midfielder has been breaking it individually with Malmö of Sweden (Champions League and local tournament). ‘Peñita’ scored against Chile and then was left out of the squad due to injury.
Above will appear André Carrillo, another of those who did not play last October due to a lower back fracture. The ‘Culebra’ is Peru’s top scorer with 3 goals and a key piece in Ricardo Gareca’s scheme.
The other is Christian Cueva, favorite of the technician in these Qualifiers. ‘Aladdin’ is one of the most destabilizing of the ‘red-white’. As tip will be Gianluca Lapadula, who is yet to score his first goal in the tournament. ‘Lapagol’ only scored in the Copa América (3). Likewise, he has all the confidence of the fans and technical command.
Peru and Bolivia will meet this Thursday, November 11 at the National Stadium in Lima for matchday 13 of the Qatar 2022 Qualifiers. The match will start at 9:00 pm (Peruvian time) on the signals of Latina TV (open signal) and Movistar Deportes (cable).
