Peru vs Brazil by Enzo

Peru made quite a big surprise last time out few days ago, when the team managed to win over more favorited Paraguay away from home with impressive 4:1 result. Hosts took the lead first in ninth minute with a goal from Riveros, but weren't that threatening from that moment on, while the Peruvians increased the pressure as the time was progressing.

Everything went on their side in the second halftime, since Ramos broke the opponents defense in 48th minute and the things became more easy for them. With three goals inside the last twenty minutes of the game, via Flores, Cuevas and an own goal, Peruvians celebrated deservedly all three points and became competitive again in the battle for spots that will be leading to World Cup in two years. Currently, they are at eight position with fourteen points earned and 4-2-5 record, which is only three points less than fourth and fifth placed Ecuador ad Chile. It means that the team needs to be attacking here as well, since they simply can't afford to lose points here even though the opponent is very strong.

Out of more known players who recently played, Peru won't be counting at defenders Juan Manuel Vargas, Carlos Zambrano, midfielders Carlos Lobaton, Jefferson Farfan and striker Cladio PIzarro who is anyway 38.

Brazil did what was needed in the previous game, taking all three points in the big derby at home against Argentina with a 3:0 result. Even though Argentinians looked a bit more concrete at times and maybe sometime with better ball control, it was all about Brazil's efficiency in attack and that's what decided the game.

Hosts took the lead in 24th minute with a goal from Coutinho and then looked to make dangerous situations via counter attack more than often, managing to seal the victory with two more goals, via Neymar at the end of the first halftime and Paulinho in 59th minute. Brazil is now standing at the first position with twenty-four points, which is seven more than play-off fifth placed Chile and the team will be looking to get a victory here as well - simply to use their great momentum, five victories in a row in qualifiers, and seal the qualifying ticket as soon as possible.

Defender Marcelo isn't part of the team here, as well as David Luiz, midfielders Casemiro, Oscar, Lucas Moura, forwards Hulk, Gabriel and Ricardo Oliveira.

I can't see this game being anything but a very open and attacking one. Both teams are coming into the match after great victories and are in good momentum, while they both keep on needing points badly. Their offensive lineups have showed what they are able of doing in previous few days and anything but similar performance would be a huge surprise for me.

    Second time Perú is a smart and high stake option. It seems like they always start vera bad the first half of every game but at the esconde they always do decent games. How about it?

  2. josue ccoyccosi says:

    Let me add; some key players are also not playing in the peruvian national team, renato tapia (feyenoord), trauco and edison flores, so peru will have some problems to hold offensive of brazil, i wil also have to add, this is almost the same players that played the copa america centenario, i will bet for a draw, for history this match represent in my country, peru.

  3. felsve says:

    Most of the players you mention have NEVER been called and will never be called to play for Brazil with Tite. Forget Hulk, David Luiz, Lucas Moura, Oscar, Gabriel, Ricardo Oliveira (really?)…
    Anything other than 3 points for Brazil here is a big surprise, but I don’t see a big margin win. 0-1 very likely, 1-2 if you are lucky :) But Brazil’s defense is looking way better than before, only 1 goal (own goal) conceded in 5 matches played against stronger opponents such as Colombia, Argentina and Equador.

  4. josue ccoyccosi says:

    Another point, let add, since the year 2000, brazil could not win in lima, for the qualify world cup, all matches always finished in draw. I will still say, this match will finish draw or better bet even both teams score, good luck with your bets

  5. Pana Fan says:

    A good bet could also be 1X double chance at beautiful odds. Brazil has been hammering as of late and especially after big win vs Argentina it could be wripe for picking by the Peruvians tonight.

  6. Michael C. Jensen says:

    Excellent remarks tptally agree could be a 0-1 or 0-2 for brazil

  7. Guardiolix says:

    Brazil HT/FT or Brazil AH-1
