The Peruvian national team played the match in the absence of striker Gianluca Lapadula, who was unable to recover from his injury, as well as Christian Coeba, who is suspended due to the accumulation of cards.
The guests surprised the Peruvian players with the first goal after only two minutes of the match, and also showed an organized defense against the attacks of the Peruvians.
And the Peruvian players continued their attempts until they managed to equalize in the second half with Edison Flores’ header.
It is noteworthy that Peru will face Uruguay at home in the 17th and penultimate round of the South American qualifiers, which will be held on March 24, while Ecuador will face Paraguay, who fell to Brazil yesterday by a clean four to bid farewell to his hopes of qualifying for Qatar.
