We’ve come to the final match of the Copa America 2019, where the tournament host Brazil is pitted against Peru. With a lot of support from the stands of Maracana, as well as a huge amount of talent in the squad, Brazil are the favorites to win the Sunday’s game. But, history thought us that anything can happen in matches like these. This is why you better prepare yourself for the clash by reading our Brazil vs Peru prediction and betting tips!
Even before the tournament started, bookies made Brazil the number 1 favorite for winning the trophy. It’s not a big surprise considering that this team is the host of the tournament. And, of course, Brazil has some extraordinary players on the team. Even though their biggest star Neymar is out of the squad, this team has a planet of amazing players who definitely seem capable of beating Peru in the final.
They did struggle on a couple of occasions over the course of this competition, especially in the final third. For instance, they played 0:0 with Venezuela in the second round of the group stage, which made their fans boo them off the pitch after the game. They also played 0:0 with Paraguay in the quarter-final, but they did beat Argentina, their biggest nemesis, 2:0 in the semi-final.
Right now, their job of winning the trophy seems pretty easy. After all, their players are several times better than Peru’s. And they’ve already shown it in the third game of the group stage when these two met at the Arena Corinthians in Sao Paulo. Brazil absolutely hammered Peru; the final result was 5:0. Our Brazil vs Peru prediction is that something like that is going to happen on Sunday as well.
Although Peru is one of the worst-ranked teams in the tournament, they did manage to find their way to the final. Sure, you might argue that they were a bit lucky. First of all, they got into the knockouts by finishing third in the group. In the quarter-final, they played Uruguay. After a penalty shootout, Peru were able to get themselves to the semi-final.
In the semi-final, they played against the winner of the previous Copa America. Chile was the favorite in that game, but Peru hammered them 3:0. How this happened is that Peru played very defensively and looked for their chances from counter-attacks and set-pieces. It’s needless to say that their game plan worked very well.
It’s probably the same tactic they’re going to use against Brazil – defend with all they got and hope for the best. But, Brazil isn’t Chile. Brazil’s attackers seem more skillful than those playing for Chile, not to mention that they’re going to be backed by nearly 80,000 fans at the Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.
Obviously, our Brazil vs Peru betting tips are going to be in the favor of the host. Still, you can be sure that winning this game won’t be as easy for Brazil as it was in the group stage. Peru are going to play even more defensively, so finding the net could prove to be a difficult task.
Alisson – Silva, Marquinhos, Dani Alves, Alex Sandro – Casemiro, Arthur, Coutinho – Gabriel Jesus, Everton, Firmino

Brazil vs Peru Prediction
Anything but a big Brazil win would be a big surprise. But, they probably will have to work hard until they find the net for the first time. After that, Peru will have to open up, which will only bring more room for Brazil’s attacks.
