Brazil vs Peru Predictions


Brazil have been in incredible form and should have few problems beating Peru. With a stern defence and Neymar on fire, I am backing Brazil to win to nil and Neymar to score in Rio de Janeiro.

  • Brazil have won to nil in 7 of their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Brazil’s Neymar has scored 6 goals in his last 4 internationals (all competitions).
  • Brazil have won by 2+ goals in 4 of their last 5 matches against Peru (all competitions).
  • Brazil’s Neymar scored 3 goals in his last match against Peru (World Cup qualifiers).
  • Peru have lost 4 of their last 5 matches (World Cup qualifiers).
  • Peru have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 matches (World Cup qualifiers).

Head to Head


Brazil have a 32-5 advantage against Peru with 8 draws in 45 matches.

Brazil Form


Brazil have won their last eight matches in all competitions, keeping seven clean sheets in that run. They have won all six World Cup qualifiers.

The Seleção started 2021 with 2-0 wins against Ecuador and Paraguay, Neymar scoring in each victory.

Tite’s side beat an understrength Venezuela 3-0 in their opening match at Copa America. Marquinhos, Neymar and Gabriel Barbosa were on target in Brasilia.

Left back Alex Sandro replaced Renan Lodi at half time against Venezuela and could start here. Éverton Ribeiro came on for Lucas Paquetá and could also start.

Tite could make changes here with Fabinho, Vicicius Junior and Gabriel Barbosa hoping to start.

Neymar has scored 67 goals in 106 internationals and needs 10 more to equal Pepe at the top of the goalscorers list for Brazil.

La Blanquirroja lost 4-2 against Brazil, 2-0 in Chile, 2-0 against Argentina and 3-0 against Colombia.

Ricardo Gareca’s side managed to beat Ecuador 2-1 in their last match. Gianluca Lapadula assisted both goals for Christian Cueva and Luis Advíncula.
