Brazil were late hosts for Copa America but entered the tournament with their eyes set firmly on a 10th title, making them the third team to reach double digits behind Argentina and Uruguay. Tite’s men have been practically faultless at Copa America so far, winning four of their five games, scoring 11 and conceding just twice. Brazil got through the group stages with relative ease, beating Venezuela, Peru and Colombia to top Group B before finishing on a 1-1 draw with Ecuador. Despite winning the group, Brazil were given a potentially tough tie against Chile in the quarter-finals, but a goal from Lucas Paqueta was enough to seal their spot in the final four.
Peru were drawn in the same group as Brazil and finished second, but their ride has been a lot less easy – albeit slightly more exciting for the neutral. La Blaquirroja started Group B with a 4-0 loss to Brazil but went unbeaten in their next three games, beating Colombia and Venezuela either side of a draw with Ecuador. A second-placed finish set up a quarter-final tie with Paraguay which was a thriller, as Peru only advanced on penalties following a 3-3 draw win which both sides were reduced to 10 men.

Brazil vs Peru: Match Stats
Many people will see Neymar as the goalscorer in this Brazil team, and it’s not hard to see why considering he is the only member of the squad with more than one goal at Copa America. But the PSG man is also the star creator. In his four appearances so far, Neymar has created 15 chances and recorded two assists.
Brazil may have let their defence slip in their final two group games against Colombia and Ecuador, but Tite’s side have been rock solid at the back for some time now. Since the start of 2020, they have conceded just four goals in 11 games, keeping seven clean sheets, all of which came in victories.

22 June 2019- Peru 0-5 Brazil – Copa America
Brazil have lost just five times against Peru in history, winning 33 and drawing eight of the 46 meetings so far. The last defeat came as recent as September 2019 in a friendly, but Brazil will not have cared having done the double over Peru en route to Copa America glory in 2019 – with one victory in the group stage and another in the final, not to mention a 4-0 thrashing already this year.
