La Blanquirroja got off to a poor start to their campaign as they had to wait until their sixth game to claim their first win. However, things began to improve since then, but they were beaten again in their last match. Will Ricardo Gareca's boys defeat the longtime rivals to get back on track?
La Roja are in a similar spot, though. Martin Lasarte hasn't turned things around yet and he is currently in a hot seat as Chile's World Cup aspirations are in real danger after six winless games. Therefore, this is a crucial match for the visitors as well.

Peru vs Chile: Storylines and Head-to-Head
Peru have struggled to grab results in the South American World Cup Qualifiers and now they're suffering the consequences of dropping all those points. Gareca's side managed to claim its first wins but it suffered another setback at the hands of Brazil on Matchday 10.
The outlook isn't encouraging for Chile either. La Roja picked up only one triumph in nine games, curiously against Peru. Their last game ended in disappointment as they lost 1-3 to Colombia and now they're under pressure to get back to winning ways.
This will be the 21st meeting between these two lifelong rivals in the World Cup Qualifiers. Chile have the edge with 12 wins, while Peru emerged victorious on six occasions, and they drew twice.
