In the match of the 2nd round of the Copa America, Brazil will face Peru. A confident victory for the Brazilians?
In the first round, Brazil went according to the usual schedule-they scored two goals and did not concede a single one, but in the penultimate minute of regular time, Gabriel Barbosa decided to make something new and scored the third goal of his team, bringing the matter to a rout. The Brazilians won the biggest of all, thanks to which they led Group B.
If for Brazil the reporting match will be the second, then for Peru the first. The previous match with the participation of Peru was held as part of the qualification stage of the 2022 World Cup, in which the guest victory over the national team of Ecuador was won with a result of 1-2. With this success, the Peruvians broke an 8-match winless streak, which consisted of six defeats and two draws.
Statistics and figures:
- Brazil had won their previous eight matches;
- The national team of Peru has won one victory in the last nine games;
- Brazil has beaten Peru in four of their last five matches.
The Peruvians will go on the defensive and hope for counterattacks, as was the case with Ecuador. Brazil will act in the usual way - long control of the ball and numerous attempts to open the massive defense of the enemy. I believe that Neymar and company will cope with their task and extend the winning move.
