The 7 best players in Peru’s Liga 1 2023
The Callao-born midfielder is the most valuable player in Liga 1 and plays for Sporting Cristal, the club he returned to in 2022 on a six-month contract.
He is also currently playing for the Peruvian national team, and was in the news in recent hours for not showing up at Sporting Cristal’s first training session ahead of the 2023 season. Will he remain at the club, or will he go abroad again?
He is undoubtedly one of the signings of the season. Gabriel Costa, a Peruvian nationalized Uruguayan midfielder, returns to Alianza Lima after eight seasons (he played between 2014 and 2015), coming from Colo Colo of Chile.
The task at hand is to win the regional title three times and go as far as possible in the Copa Libertadores, a competition for which Alianza Lima has already qualified in the group stage. During his stint with the squad from the capital, he played 84 games and scored 27 goals.
FBC Melgar has a very strong roster with multiple players who have been chosen for the national team, making it one of the strongest teams in Peru in recent years.
Among them is Alexis Arias, a midfielder who scored a goal and provided 7 assists last season.
With 15 goals scored last season, the 31-year-old Colombian striker is one of the big names in Ligue 1. He plays for César Vallejo, a club that has just hired Uruguayan Sebastián Abreu as its new coach.
He is clearly the goal scorer for the 2021–22 campaign. In 35 games with Sport Huancayo, he has scored 19 goals.
The midfielder, whose goals helped his team reach the Copa Sudamericana, has renewed his contract with the club for two more seasons.
A remarkable Peruvian soccer player who has played for Alianza Lima since 2021. Last season he scored 18 goals in 37 games, making him the second-highest scorer behind Luis Benítes.
He played in 17 games for Club Centro Deportivo Municipal this season, scoring 7 goals (10 as a starter).
