Five dates from the end of the South American Qualifiers, The Peruvian National Team has very little margin of error to continue to think that qualification to Qatar 2022 is possible. In that sense, It is essential to win a visit to Venezuela to get closer to the playoff Or, in the best of cases, enter the qualification zone for the World Cup.
Forced not to make more mistakes as in the previous visits by Qualifiers, Ricardo Gareca’s team must make the perfect match or to approach it in front of a Venezuela that already only plays the honor on the way to the World Cup in Qatar.
What to do to beat Venezuela? Impose superiorities to violate his defensive system, take advantage of his poor coordination in the pressure and extract oil from the stopped ball, one of his weaknesses.
Leonardo González has already warned that he has studied Peru, that they will seek to cancel the offensive trio Carrillo-Lapadula-Cueva, so The incorporation of the steering wheels and laterals will be important to generate surprise and anxiety to an opponent who usually defends withdrawn in his field.
On a defensive level, the Bicolor will have to be very careful with Darwin Machís and Jefferson Savarino, two attackers who will seek to attack the exposed side in transition or when Gareca’s team loses the ball.
Twenty-four years after the last visit triumph, the Peruvian National Team has an appointment with history in the middle of its great objective: to be in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
