Peru were beaten at the death by Mexico last week

Peru and El Salvador lock horns at the Audi Field in Washington DC on Tuesday for an international friendly.

Los Incas missed their flight to Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup after losing 5-4 on penalties to Australia, who held them to a goalless draw in normal time.

Alex Valera missed the decisive kick in the June playoffs as the South American outfit failed to secure back-to-back appearances in the competition.

Former Peruvian international Juan Reynoso was appointed as their new manager in August, but his reign started off with a 1-0 defeat to Mexico on Saturday.

Hirving Lozano broke Peruvian hearts with a strike in the 85th minute.

El Salvador, meanwhile, finished seventh in the third round of the CONCACAF qualifiers after collecting only 10 points from 14 games. Only Honduras accrued fewer (10).

Since then, Los Cuscatlecos are unbeaten in four games, including three in the CONCACAF Nations League.

They started their campaign with a 3-1 defeat of Grenada, before being held by them in the next match, followed by another draw with the USA.

Peru vs El Salvador Prediction

Peru have a good squad but haven't scored in their last two games and were clearly not playing their best football against Mexico.

El Salvador are the underdogs here but could still manage a draw.
