Peru are hoping for a flying start in Group C after a 36-year absence from the World Cup – the longest from any nation competing at this year’s tournament
Peru vs Denmark will be shown live on BBC1 in the UK.
The game will be available to stream via the BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport Online.
TV coverage in Russia will be shared between Perviy Kanal, VGTRK and Match TV.
TV channels Latina and DirecTV will show coverage of the game in Peru.
TV2 will broadcast the match in Denmark.
The Danes will clearly hope to take advantage of this, with Age Hareide’s squad looking to make a comeback after their failed attempt to propel themselves out of their group back in 2010.
Kep player Christian Eriksen is also in good form after scoring a hat-trick against the Republic of Ireland in the play-offs.
Peru and Denmark debut at the 2018 World Cup when they meet in Saransk on Saturday in Group C play, just hours after France and Australia open up the group’s play.
It’s set to be a battle between two countries that feel like they have more than enough to get out of the group, and a victory for one puts that team with a foot into the knockout stage. Both teams are riding some momentum, but Peru more so. The South Americans haven’t lost a match since November of 2016, and they went unbeaten in their last six qualifiers to jump into the fifth spot in CONMEBOL to make the cup for the first time since 1982.
Peru enters the match healthy and greatly boosted by Paolo Guerrero’s presence. The star striker was ruled out of the World Cup for doping but earned permission to play, cutting his ban short, just prior to the tournament.
Denmark meanwhile is healthy and ready to go, feeling good after a 2-0 win over Mexico in a friendly the other day, with the team finding its scoring touch after scoring just once in the two games before that.
