Brazil finished their last world cup in 4th place and Copa America tournament as a winner in 2019. Right now Brazil is one of the prominent team because this team has many young players which are very good and they are playing in the various well-known clubs like Chelsea, PSG, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and so on. Neymar is one of the great players of this time. And after a long injury, he is back and playing really well in the current season with PSG. They also have players like Rodrygo, Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino, Coutinho, Willian, Casemeiro and so on. They also have the best goalkeeper in the world right now, one and only Alison Becker. In addition, he has won the best goalkeeper in the world.
The Peru national team enjoyed its most successful periods in the 1930s and the 1970s. The national team’s all-time top goalscorer is Paolo Guerrero, with 38 goals, and its most-capped player is Roberto Palacios, with 128 appearances. Under manager Ricardo Gareca, Peru placed third at the 2015 Copa América, reached the quarterfinals of the Copa América Centenario, participated in the group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, and earned second at the 2019 Copa América and this year they also participating. Overall this is a quite balanced team that has few marking players in attack, as well as in the midfield.
Brazil is now in with very good form and they have been playing really well, there I think Brazil is probably going to win the match against Peru by 2-0.
