Brazil vs Peru Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Rock solid Brazil have yet to concede a single goal in the 2019 Copa America. This puts them in a fantastic position to claim the crown on home soil against Peru in Sunday’s final at the Maracana.

I am tipping Brazil to win to nil at 1.83 against a Peru team which has rode its luck to get this far.

Brazil Form & Team News


Brazil hit the ground running in the 2019 Copa America as Philippe Coutinho’s brace and Everton’s goal saw them down Bolivia 3-0. The Selecao have hardly looked back since, performing superbly at both ends.

A 0-0 draw against Venezuela followed with three disallowed goals preventing the Selecao from sealing the win. Brazil were undeterred and next beat Peru 5-0 with goals from Casemiro, Roberto Firmino, Everton, Dani Alves and Willian.

The Selecao then beat Paraguay on penalties after totally dominating in a 0-0 draw before seeing off Argentina with a clinical 2-0 win in the semifinals. Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino were on target for Brazil with Neymar’s absence not felt at all.

The Selecao are paying short odds of 1.33 to win as they are heavy favourites. The win to nil market offers value at 1.83 for a team that has not conceded all tournament.

Peru Form & Team News


La Blanquirroja scraped through to the quarter-finals despite their 5-0 loss to Brazil. Their passage to the next round came thanks to a 3-1 win over Bolivia and a 0-0 draw with Venezuela.

Ricardo Gareca’s men have since slayed two giants, beating Uruguay on penalties after a 0-0 draw and then Chile 3-0 in the semifinals. Brazil however are a completely different beast and the memories of a heavy group stage defeat will linger in Peru’s minds.

Edison Flores, Yoshimar Yotun and Paolo Guerrero were on target for Peru against Chile but it was only the second 2019 Copa America match in which La Blanquirroja scored. Peru have their backs against the wall heading into the final and are paying big odds of 13.00 for the win with a draw paying 5.35.

Brazil vs Peru Head to Head


Peru and Brazil have played 27 times since the 1963 Copa America and the Selecao lead 18-3 in the win count with six draws. Brazil’s 5-0 group stage win came at the Corinthians Arena.

Brazil vs Peru Match Up


Philippe Coutinho has been a strong attacking presence in the 2019 Copa America with 3.4 shots per game. The Barcelona playmaker is worth watching in the anytime goalscorer market.

Peru’s Paolo Guerrero will likely lead the line for La Blanquirroja and has two goals in five 2019 Copa America matches.
