Revenge will be on the mind of Peru against the Selecao this evening. Ricardo Gareca’s side were beaten 3-1 by Brazil in the Copa America final in 2019, ending their hopes of winning the competiton for the first time since 1975. Peru had to battle past Paraguay in the last eight to advance, requiring penalties to see off their rivals. Miguel Trauco was composed from 12 yards to guide his team over the line, but they will need to be flawless tonight to beat out Brazil.
Brazil booked their place in the last four with a 1-0 victory over Chile last time out. Lucas Paqueta’s goal was enough for the Selecao in their quarter-final contest to advance, but they had to display resilience after Gabriel Jesus was given a straight red card early in the second half. Tite’s men held their nerve and now have the chance to seal their place in the Copa America final for the second-straight tournament.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Copa America semi-final clash between Brazil and Peru at the Estadio Nilton Santos.
PERU (3-5-1-1): Pedro Gallese; Alexander Callens, Christian Ramos, Alexander Santamaria; Aldo Corzo, Sergio Pena, Renato Tapia, Yoshimar Yotun, Miguel Trauco; Christian Cueva; Gianluca Lapadula.
