Brazil vs Peru Preview, Prediction, Head to head results: Copa America 2021 Semi Final
Brazil will face Peru in the last four on Tuesday, 6th July, with Alley Sport bringing Brazil vs Peru preview and buildup to this South American clash.
Brazil survived losing Gabriel Jesus to a red card early in the second half to defeat Chile 1-0 in a thrilling Copa America tie on Friday and move into a semi-final next week against Peru. The host nation will play Peru, who beat Paraguay on penalties earlier in the day, at Rio de Janeiro’s Nilton Santos stadium on July 5. The other quarter-finals will be played on Saturday, with Argentina playing Ecuador and Uruguay facing Colombia.
Brazil vs Peru Preview
Friday’s tie between the last two Copa America champions was more closely fought than their form coming into the game suggested. Brazil were unbeaten in 11 games and topped Group B, while Chile finished only fourth in Group A and have drawn four of their last six matches 1-1.
However, the outlook changed less than two minutes later. Brazil were reduced to 10 men after Gabriel Jesus was shown a straight red for a horrific kung-fu kick that sent Eugenio Mena tumbling.
Peru beat Paraguay 4-3 on penalties to move into the Copa America semifinals on Friday following an action-packed match that ended 3-3 after 90 minutes. Gustavo Gomez put Paraguay ahead in the 10th minutes but two goals from Gianluca Lapadula gave Peru the upper hand before Gomez was sent off on the stroke of half-time.
Brazil vs Peru: Prediction
Brazil are the favorites to win the game against Peru. Brazil are in tremendous form, which is evident with their prominent displays against Chile, and are looking to extend on this form prior to the Semi with a win against Peru. Peru have the ability to upset the reigning champions, but they need to play an aggressive game in order to obtain any result out of this game.
