Reason For Peru vs Brazil Predictions

Brazil suffered their first setback of the tournament in midweek, as they drew 0-0 with Venezuela. They could have booked their place in the next round with a win, but now they’re left facing a must-win finale. The hosts are chasing a victory to follow up their success against Bolivia in the opening match. With the hosts desperate to land some silverware following a few poor World Cup campaigns, they can’t afford to drop more points in the group stage.

Peru made it to the 2018 World Cup, picking up plenty of admirers along the way. They’ve been impressive contenders at the Copa America in recent years, including taking their place in the last eight in the 2016 tournament. That run included a success over Brazil, as they won 1-0 on their way to the quarters. Could Peru pull off a similar result this weekend in order to leave the Brazilians in huge trouble?

Brazil will be disappointed to fail to score against Venezuela in their last game, having dominated the clash. They were able to get two-thirds of possession and create chances, but they only hit two shots on target in that game. That’s a major issue for the hosts to sort out, especially given how the whole country expects them to finally deliver success on home soil. That expectation went unfulfilled at the 2014 World Cup, leaving fans of the Samba stars desperate for success this summer.

However, the pressure is on the hosts to win this clash, especially following that draw with Venezuela. Having seen their superstar attack thwarted, they should be concerned about this Peru side. While the outsiders are fresh from a 3-1 win over Bolivia, they can also produce much more restrained displays too. Peru also played out a 0-0 with Venezuela, while they claimed 1-0 wins over Paraguay and Costa Rica earlier this year.

Brazil have kept four clean sheets on the spin, so we expect them to keep the opposition attack quiet. However, Brazil are unlikely to get the space they had in their 3-0 win over Bolivia. Peru know a point – or potentially even a narrow defeat – takes them through, so expect them to try and keep things tight. We are backing a low scoring clash between these sides, following on from their close encounter in 2016. Under 2.5 goals is our tip, while we’re backing Brazil to win 2-0.
