Brazil vs. Peru: Copa America final prediction, pick, TV channel, live stream, watch online, game timeThe 2019 Copa America wraps up on Sunday at the Maracana as host Brazil takes on Peru in the final.
It’s a rematch of a game from the group stage in which Brazil blasted the surprise finalists 5-0, with the expectation being Brazil wins somewhat comfortably again to lift the title for the first time since 2007. A win for Peru would arguably be the biggest upset in Copa America final history.
Brazil: The massive favorite to win. Having already beaten Peru, confidence is there in being able to do it again. Having yet to concede a goal at the tournament and with an inspired Dani Alves leading the way, Brazil is expected to go with duo Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino in attack as they aim to end their title drought.
Peru: They aren’t happy with just being here. After making the World Cup in 2018, this has been a wonderful stretch for Ricardo Gareca’s team. They’ll need to set their priority to defending first and foremost to have any shot and then take some of the few chances they’ll likely have in attack.
Brazil and Peru will go head-to-head in the Copa America final at the Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday, July 7.Brazil will be playing for its first title since 2007 after edging Paraguay in penalty kicks after a scoreless draw in the quarterfinals and then taking down rival Argentina 2–0 in the semifinals on goals from Gabriel Jesus and Roberto Firmino. The hosts won their group with wins over Peru and Bolivia and a draw against Venezuela.
Peru will be playing in its first final since 1975, when it last lifted the trophy. Peru advanced to the final after defeating defending champion Chile 3–0 in the semifinal. Peru defeated Uruguay in a penalty kick shootout following a 0-0 draw in the quarterfinals and started the 2019 tournament with a 0–0 draw against Venezuela and 3–1 win over Bolivia. Peru fell 5–0 to Brazil in the group stage, though, meaning it must find a way to close the gap quickly or risk being blown out with a trophy on the line.
