Stadium: Estádio Nilton Santo
In the second round of the Copa America 2021, the national teams of Brazil and Peru will meet. Two years ago in the final of the Copa America 2019, these teams played each other twice, first in the group stage and then in the finals. In the group, the Five-Time World Champions dashingly dealt with the Incas, outplaying Peru with a score of 5-0. In the final at the Maracana, the Brazilians were stronger again, but this time the score was 3-1. How will the score be this time?
Brazil: the most valuable team of the tournament
The Brazilian national team continues to be led by Tite, with whom the Five-Time World Champions won the Copa America 2019 at home. This time the tournament is again played in Brazil, although previously it was to be played in Colombia and Argentina. Before the start of the tournament and after the first round, the Brazilian team is quoted as the favorite of the continental championship. The Brazilian national team has the most expensive squad at the tournament, worth more than 900 million euros. In the first round of the Copa, the Brazilian national team defeated the Venezuelan national team, having outplayed their opponent with a score of 3-0. In that match goals for the national team were scored by: Marquinhos, Neymar, and Gabriel Barbosa with a pass by Neymar. By the way, the Flamengo forward scored after coming on as a substitute, another whist in favor of moving this striker back to Europe. It should be noted that the winning streak of the Brazilian national team has eight matches, and the dry streak of Five-Time World Champions has lasted five consecutive matches.
Team Peru: finalists of the last Copa America
The current Peruvian team is not as strong as it was a few years ago. That team made it to the finals of the Copa America 2019 and played at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The current team is in the last place, 10th in the standings of the South American zone in the qualification for the World Cup 2022 after 6 rounds. We believe that this result, more than any words, shows the real state of affairs in the Inca team. In contrast to the Brazilian team, for the Peruvian team, the upcoming meeting will be the first at the tournament. In June, the Peruvians played two matches in the World Cup qualifying, they lost to the Colombians 0-3, and beat Ecuador 2-1 on the road.
Betting and prediction
In the last eight games, Brazil has conceded only two goals, and interestingly enough, both goals came from Peru's Carrillo and Tapia. Despite the two goals scored, the Incas lost the game 2-4, and Neymar scored a hat-trick. However, we should not forget that the meeting was held in Lima. The upcoming match will take place in Rio de Janeiro. Here are the following bets: W1 for 1.20, TO 2.5 goals for 1.70, Both Teams To Score - Yes for 2.50.
