Peru wrap up their international friendlies for the month with a game against Jamaica at the Estadio Nacional de Lima on Thursday.

Peru played out a 1-1 draw at the venue against Panama on Monday while this is the only friendly game planned for the month for Jamaica.

Both teams will resume their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaigns for the final push later this month and this game provides a good opportunity for both managers to get their players in shape.

Peru vs Jamaica Prediction

Peru looked a bit disorganized in their friendly game against Panama and in this friendly fixture we do not expect the players to push themselves to exhaustion with one eye on the upcoming World Cup qualifiers. So, a draw looks like the most likely outcome from this fixture.

Prediction: Peru 1-1 Jamaica.
