Peru met Brazil in their opening match at Copa America and lost 4-0 in Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil have won 10 of their last 12 matches, keeping nine clean sheets in that run and winning eight of them by 2+ goals.

Tite’s side beat Venezuela 3-0 in their opening match at Copa America. They backed up with a 4-0 win against Peru in Rio de Janeiro.

The Seleção left it late against Colombia in a 2-1 win. They were 1-0 down with 15 minutes remaining, Roberto Firmino equalising and Casemiro heading in Neymar’s corner deep into added time.

Tite made many changes in their final group game against Ecuador that ended in a 1-1 draw. They took the lead through Éder Militão with Vinícius Júnior missing a great chance after Ecuador had equalised.

Brazil beat Chile 1-0 in the quarter-finals. Lucas Paquetá opened the scoring in the 46th minute, Gabriel Jesus was sent off 2 minutes later but they held on to keep another clean sheet.

Neymar has scored 68 goals in 109 internationals and needs nine more to equal Pepe at the top of the goalscorers list for Brazil.

Peru Form


Peru started Copa America with a 4-0 defeat against Brazil. They bounced back with a 2-1 win against Colombia.

Peru’s last match was penalty shootout victory against Paraguay in the quarter-finals. Gianluca Lapadula score twice to make it 2-1 with Yoshimar Yotún making it 3-2 in the 80th minute.

They conceded a 90th minute equaliser to take it to extra time. Lapadula, Yotún, Renato Tapia and Miguel Trauco scored in the shootout which they won 4-3.

Verdict

Brazil are close to full strength and playing with plenty of confidence. With Peru missing a key player in André Carrillo, I am backing Brazil to win to nil.
