Recent Form

Before heading into this weekend Copa America clash, both teams have been involved in other matches. Let’s check out the latest results that they have been getting to have an idea about their current form.

Brazil

Recent form in all competition (last five matches): WDWWW

Selecao have been doing very well in this year’s Copa America with four wins and one draw. Tite’s squad also got a convincing 5-0 victory against Peru during their group stage battle.

Beating Argentina in the semifinal should give that extra confidence for Brazil in their attempt to win it all. Playing at home will give that added pressure for Tite’s squad, but they must give their all.

Los Incas’ success in getting into the Copa America final is certainly surprising especially after their groups stage loss against Brazil. However, victories in the knock out stage against Paraguay and Chile set to change Ricardo Gareca’s confidence.

Getting all the way into the final stage, Peru will give all they can to take down the host nation. Los Incas are set to battle with less pressure as eyes are on Brazil this Sunday.

Team News

Brazil

Selecao doesn’t have any concern regarding late injury issues as they can even welcome Filipe Luis back into the starting line up. Luis set to replace Alex Sandro in that left back position for Tite’s squad.

Roberto Firmino continue to lead the line up front with Gabriel Jesus, Coutinho and Everton just behind. Alisson is hoping to keep his clean sheet record and complete his excellent achievement this season.

Peru

Ricardo Gareca’s side will have an injury concern to think about for this upcoming final match. Experienced attacker, Jefferson Farfan is still struggling with injury and might be out for this match.

Paolo Guerrero will continue to be Peru’s main man up front and set to cause threat for Brazil. Carillo, Cueva along with Flores are the ones supporting Guerrero in that attacking midfield roles.

Head to Head Records:

In their last five meetings, Brazil have been able to dominate their opponent with four wins and just one defeat.

Both teams latest match up happened earlier in the tournament with Selecao destroying Los Incas 5-0.

Match Prediction

Getting into the final, Brazil will be expected to win it all as they face a familiar opponent. Tite certainly hope that his players won’t take things lightly as anything can happen in a final game.

Peru will try to forget their group stage loss and turn things around on the Sunday final match. Brazil are favorites to win this weekend, but underestimating their opponent can cost them dearly.
