Brazil are expected to lift the Copa America trophy on home soil

<div><h2>Brazil vs Peru</h2><p><a href="">Sunday, July 7, at Maracana Stadium (Rio de Janeiro)</a></p><p>Hosts Brazil beat Argentina 2-0 on Tuesday with goals from Man City’s Gabriel Jesus and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino booking their Copa America final spot. They will meet Peru in the final at the Maracana Stadium on Sunday. Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has blamed Ecuador referee Roddy Zambrano for Argentina's defeat saying he favoured the Brazilians during the entire match. Messi and Co. recorded over 10 scoring opportunities hitting the woodwork twice but unfortunately, they failed to covert their chances. No player has beaten Liverpool and Brazil’s goalkeeper Alisson in 846 minutes for his club and country, confirming he’s one of the best keepers in the world. He played 41 matches for Brazil conceding just 13 goals and keeping 28 cleans sheets in the process. He became the 1st goalkeeper to be awarded the Golden Glove in 3 different competitions during the same season (Premier League, Champions League and Copa America). Brazil will be without Willian who has been ruled out with a hamstring injury.</p><p>On the other side, Peru pulled off the upset beating the reigning champs Chile 3-0 in their semi-final match. They were deadly on the break and clinical in front of the net scoring 3 goals from 3 shots on target. They reached the Copa America final for the 1st time since 1975 and they fully deserve to be here. They are very organized they have a rock-solid defense and it’s very difficult for their opponents to find spaces and find the back of the net against them. They already played Brazil in the group stage losing 5-0 but they will surely try not to repeat the same mistakes. They managed to overcome the criticism provoked by the heavy defeat against Brazil beating 15-time winners Uruguay in the quarter finals and defending champs Chile in the semis which mean that they are mentally prepared and that they will enter this match full of confidence and ready to fight till the last minute of the game.</p><p>It will be very tough for them to repeat their semi-final performance against Brazil who are playing in front of their fans, they are fully packed with world class players and they kept 7 consecutive clean sheets across all competitions. Brazil have played who can decide a match on their own, a strong bench and most important they have 1 extra day of resting before the final match. The atmosphere will be superb, and Brazil’s fans will cheer for their idols during the whole match giving them a boost of energy. The pressure is on the hosts, but their experience and skills will be the key to this match.</p><p><a href=";a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Copa America Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Brazil to win and under 3.5 goals in the match at 1.91 with Coral.</strong></em></a></p></div>
