Peru vs Brazil Match Analysis & Prediction
13/09/2023 5:00 am
Brazil will be looking to follow up Saturday’s dominant victory over Bolivia when they travel to Lima for Tuesday’s match against Peru in World Cup qualifying.
Meawhile, the hosts will be hoping to pull off a surprise result and claim all three points after they shared the spoils with Paraguay in their opening match.
After CONMEBOL were awarded an extra automatic qualifying spot for the expanded 2026 tournament, Peru will believe that they have a real chance of reaching their fifth World Cup finals.
Juan Reynoso’s side were forced to work hard in their opening match against Paraguay after Luis Advincula was sent off on the stroke of halftime for two bookable offenses.
The 10 men of Peru held firm in the second half to hold Paraguay to a goalless draw, ensuring that they returned home with a crucial point.
While they may have won just one of their last five internationals, Peru will be pleased with the fact that they have now kept three clean sheets in their last four matches.
Brazil interim manager Fernando Diniz, who is balancing the role with his position as Fluminense head coach, began his tenure with a 5-1 victory over Bolivia in Belem on Saturday.
Rodrygo scored either side of a Raphinha strike to give Brazil a commanding three -goal lead, before Neymar netted a brace to become the nation’s men’s leading scorer, surpassing the reord previously held by Pele.
That result represented Brazil’s fourth successive victory in World Cup qualifying – a run that includes three consecutive 4-0 wins over Paraguay, Chile and Bolivia.
