Brazil VS Peru Final LIVE Football Match Score Sept 10/9/2021
Brazil host Peru at the Itaipava Arena on Thursday with Tite’s side aiming to extend their perfect record in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying. The five-time world champions have won all seven of their matches in the tournament and, despite the surreal circumstances surrounding the abandonment of their weekend match with Argentina, La Canarinha will be confident of claiming another victory against Peru.
The home team still has all wins in these qualifiers after the derby with Argentina in the last round was interrupted after a few minutes. Meanwhile, Peru is not doing that well so far. With that in mind, and taking into account that Brazil won four of the last five previous duels against Peru, our prediction is for Brazil to win this game by at least two goals.
They began with a 5-0 thrashing of Bolivia and a 4-2 win over Peru, as Neymar hit a hat-trick alongside a Richarlison goal to punish Thursday’s opponents, and subsequent victories over Venezuela, Uruguay, Ecuador and Paraguay saw them head into the Copa America with 18 points from their six qualifying games.
Tite’s men cruised through the group stage of the continental tournament comfortably, with a draw against Ecuador being the only blemish as they collected 10 points from four games, and 1-0 victories over Chile and Peru in the quarter-finals and semi-finals respectively saw them come within one game of retaining the title.
The Selecao fell short of fulfilling their aims though, as an Angel Di Maria goal made the difference in a 1-0 win for rivals Argentina, before Brazil returned to action recently with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Chile thanks to Everton Ribeiro’s 64th-minute winner.
Tite’s men then met Argentina in Sao Paulo on Sunday, but the game was brought to an abrupt end inside the first 10 minutes as Brazilian health officials stormed the pitch, claiming that three Argentinian starters had broken rules by not declaring that they arrived from England, a nation on Brazil’s COVID-19 red list.
Looking to put that drama behind them on Thursday, the Selecao will hope for a repeat of July’s Copa America semi-final, when Lucas Paqueta fired them to a 1-0 win over Peru, but they certainly face a difficult test.
Brazil: After the chaos of the Argentina clash, PSG’s Marquinhos has been sent home as the Brazilian Federation are unsure if his ban stands or not. The Selecao boast a 100% record still and will want to keep it that way as they sign off until next month’s fixtures and a possible rearranged Argentine date.
Peru: A win over Venezuela and a draw with Uruguay is a decent return but the damage was done in earlier losses to Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and Colombia. Points are needed to close the gap on the Colombians in the last playoff berth before automatic promotion can become a realistic target once again.
