The finals of Copa America are here. Both sides are just one win away from the ultimate goal, and that is the trophy. For Brazil, that is something expected, while on the other hand, Peru’s participation in the finals is a huge sensation. Nobody saw them here after the group stage. By the way, this is going to be the second match of these two sides at this edition of Copa America. The first one ended with Brazil annihilating Peru with 5-0 in the group stage.
For Tite’s guys, this is a must-win situation. To be honest, they were under huge pressure to win this competition from the moment when the news arrived that Brazil will be the host. So far, they are playing well, and despite all the criticism for not playing nice and attractive football, Selecao posts good results. They haven’t allowed a single goal in five games, which is something remarkable we need to add. Tite always preferred strong defence, and he isn’t going to allow himself making the same mistakes as during the World Cup when he backed out from that style of play.
Peru couldn’t score a goal in four out of five matches prior to the clash with Chile. And all of a sudden, they demolished Chile, who has one of the best defensive lines in the world, netting three times. But we have to be realistic and add that Peru had an enormous amount of luck. Three shots towards the goal and all three ended behind Arias’ back. They had 35% of the ball possession and a fantastic goalie Gallese who recorded seven saves. He is the ultimate reason why this team reached the finals in the first place. All the mistakes of his teammates in front of him were covered up, and that wasn’t just the case in this clash.

Felipe Luis is questionable for the hosts, as he already missed a game against Argentina in the semi-finals. The same applies to Richarlison and Fernandinho. It seems that both of them aren’t going to recover for the finals.
With Peru, Jefferson Farfan is listed doubtful.
Brazil to win is our first choice. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out. After all, Selecao demolished this same rival 5-0 in the group stage. And they have the fans behind them. But what is the big problem here are the odds on Brazil’s triumph. They are just too low. Because of that, we are going to suggest betting on hosts’ win with an Asian handicap, -1.5 goals. Unibet has a nice offer here, with the odds almost doubling your investment, 19/20.
Regarding goals, one pick stands above others from our point of view. We strongly believe that Peru’s attack isn’t going to score in this one. Alisson is in great shape, and the players in front of him also. Meanwhile, the Peruvians are struggling with scoring, and it is hard to believe that they have the same amount of luck as against Chile. So, Brazil to keep clean sheets with the odds of 8/15 at Bet365 is our choice.
