Peru and Uruguay meet in the South American World Cup Qualifiers 2022. This game will take place at Estadio Nacional de Lima on September 2, 2021 at 9:00 PM (ET). Peru expect things to improve in September after poor results in previous months. Here is all the detailed information about the confirmed lineups for this World Cup Qualifiers game, which can be watched in the US with FuboTV.
Peru suffered four losses in the last six games of the qualifiers 2022. They are having trouble winning games and if they continue like this they will not be able to reach a spot for Qatar 2022. The bottom of the table in the standings is deep.
Uruguay are favorites, but that does not mean that they are going to relax against other teams. Uruguay has two wins, two draws and two losses in the six games of the first phase in the South American World Cup Qualifiers 2022. After this game they return home to play against Ecuador.
Peru confirmed lineup
The solution to Peru's problem is simple: Win the game or forget about the World Cup in Qatar 2022. The only two positive results for the Peruvians in the qualifiers were a victory against Ecuador in Matchday 8 and a draw against Paraguay 2-2.
Ricardo Gareca (Peru’s Head Coach) was supposed to have the magic formula to make the Peruvian team win a spot in Qatar 2022. But so far everything has been negative for him and his strategy. Peru after this game has to play against Venezuela, Brazil, Chile, and Bolivia.
This is the Peru’s lineup for this game: Gallese (GK); Advincula (DF), Santamaria (DF), Callens (DF), López (DF); Tapia (MF), Yotún (MF), Carrilo (CAM), Cueva (CAM), Flores (CAM) Guerrero (FW).
Uruguay confirmed lineup
Luis Suarez will not be available for this game, neither will Cavani. Those two players were left off the roster to play Peru because soccer leagues in Europe refused to give the players permission to travel. But Suarez will not be available due to a “muscle injury” per Atletico de Madrid.
Oscar Tabarez, Uruguay's head coach, told a press conference about how good the other teams are playing in the South American World Cup Qualifiers 2022. He knows, as a veteran coach, that the absence of Cavani and Luis Suarez could be decisive for winning against Peru.
This is the Uruguay’s lineup for this game: Fernando Muslera (GK), Nandez (DF), Diego Godin (DF), Jose Maria Gimenez (DF), Viña (DF); Bentancur (MF), Matias Vecino (MF), Federico Valverde (MF), De Arrascaeta (MF); Maximiliano Gomez (FW) and Jonathan Rodriguez (FW).
