Fourth place is well and truly up for grabs in the CONMEBOL qualifying section.
At the moment, it is Uruguay’s to lose as they lead Peru by a single point with two matches remaining.
A third straight victory for La Celeste – coupled with Chile failing to beat Brazil – would seal a fourth successive World Cup finals appearance.
Although, they cannot expect Peru to roll over in Montevideo.
La Blanquirroja will be desperate to secure back-to-back finals appearances for the first time since 1982.
And Ricardo Gareca’s men certainly have momentum on their side.
After all, they are unbeaten in six matches – winning four and conceding just three goals during that span.
