Match Preview

The Peru vs Brazil match in the 2021 Copa America semifinal schedule took place at the Nilton Santos Stadium, Brazil, on Tuesday (6/7/2021) at 4:30 a.m. Indian time. The duel, which was broadcast via Indosiar live broadcast and live streaming Vidio, was a chance for Brazil to reach the 10th Copa America title.

Previously, Brazil had dominated the Copa America final in the last 10 editions with 5 times entering the final and all of the winning titles. Brazil now has 9 Copa America titles. The Selecao are the third most successful team in this event, behind Argentina (13 titles) and Uruguay (14 titles).

If they can beat Peru, then Brazil will enter the final again and have a chance to maintain the status of a champion. At the 2019 Copa America, the Selecao became champions after beating Peru 3-1 in the final.

Prior to the 2021 Copa America semifinals, Brazil and Peru had met in the group stage with a 4-0 win for the Selecao. After losing to Brazil, Peru immediately bounced back by picking up a 2-1 victory over Colombia, holding Ecuador 2-2, and then winning again from Venezuela (1-0) and Paraguay (4-3).

With Peru's consistency reaping positive results, Brazil must be careful to avoid the revenge mission of Ricardo Gareca's troops.

"I think it's clear that we [Brazil] are favorites because we are at home, but we have to know how to deal with it," said Fred, a Brazilian player, in a press conference, quoted by CBF.

"It will be a game of life and death for them [Peru]. The semi-final of the Copa América, the match against Brazil at our home. They will try to play a great game with great consistency," he added.

If you look at the history of meeting the two teams, in the past 90 years Brazil and Peru have met 48 times. A total of 34 wins belong to Brazil, while Peru has only won 5 wins and 9 draws. 

However, it should be noted that 2 of Peru's 5 wins have come in the last 5 years. Therefore, although Brazil still dominates head to head, Peru's rise must be watched out for.

"Brazil is still a very strong team. Our present has also improved and we are in a position to improve on what we have done so far," Peru tactician Ricardo Gareca told Marca

In the 2021 Copa America semifinals, Brazil will not be strengthened by Gabriel Jesus who received a red card, and Felipe who is currently injured. On the other hand, Peru will be without Andre Carrillo who is facing a ban.
