At the beginning of the Playoffs for the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the Peruvian team will have Paraguay as their rival at the Defensores del Chaco stadium. For the crucial encounter, Ricardo Gareca prepares his best starting eleven considering sending three footballers in the middle of the field and putting Christian Cueva, a habitual hitch, as a left winger. Undoubtedly, the trident that would be made up of Yoshimar Yotún, Renato Tapia and Pedro Aquino, has as a precedent the victory against Brazil in the friendly played in Los Angeles.
On September 10, 2019, the Peruvian National Team defeated Brazil 1-0 in the friendly played in Los Angeles with a goal from Luis Abram. For said match, Ricardo Gareca changed the tactical system and added Pedro Aquino as an inside wheel on the right to gain aggressiveness in the brand. Renato Tapia was the anchor midfielder and Yoshimar Yotún went on to play inside midfielder on the left. Peru played a good game and with a different proposal beat Neymar’s team.
What does the national team win with the trident Yotún, Tapia and Aquino? All three players feel football in the same way. That is, they have as characteristic a good technique for passing the pass, a fundamental aspect for the style of play that Ricardo Gareca captures on the field. Above all, having Peru as a team that discusses the prominence of the meeting on any stage.
The presence of Pedro Aquino in the middle of the court can give us a reference to the proposal that we can find in the bicolor against Paraguay. It is not a secret that the main characteristic of the Club León steering wheel is the aggressiveness of the brand. In this way, we could find a more conservative Peru in the match to neutralize Eduardo Berizzo’s team and, in this way, go on the attack with the usual arguments.
The most decisive footballer to leave his teammates in better condition is Yoshimar Yotún. The Cruz Azul midfielder is the National Team’s nexus of defense and attack. Without a doubt, with the 4-3-3 system and with Pedro Aquino in the middle of the court, Yotún will have greater freedom to join the attack and even at certain moments of the game end up playing as a hook.
Finally, Renato Tapia enjoys the confidence of Ricardo Gareca in the Peruvian National Team. The footballer is going through a good time at Celta de Vigo and arrives continuously for the start of the Qualifiers.
