Best World Cup bet: La Celeste for the win

La Celeste’s winning possibility does not only rely on the fact that it fared well in the ranking. This alone cannot guarantee a sweep since they will be playing in foreign territories. Moreover, they should not forget that Peru is also determined to make their World Cup berth.

 

Other than the figures, if there is anything that will give them the edge, this is no other than their experience in the recently concluded Confederations Cup. During the said tournament, the team had the chance to go against World Cup giants such as the title holder, Spain, the crowd favorite, Brazil and the strong Italy.

 

Moreover, it cannot be denied that the team overflows with talented players such as Edinson Cavani, Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez. The world saw how these 3 fared in the Confederations Cup. Indeed, it was just a friendly. But the power that the team brings on the flank are expected to be seen when they go against Peru.
