Brazil continue their quest for a successful Copa America title defence with a Group A clash against Peru. The Brazilians have steamrolled all in their path in recent times and with Neymar continuing his good form, should be too strong for Peru.

La Selecao began their campaign with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Venezuela in their opening fixture. Marquinhos opened the scoring in the first half while Neymar and Gabriel Barbosa added further goals after the break.

It was a dominant performance from the Brazilians that underlined their status as pre-tournament favourites. The result also extended their winning streak to eight matches, a run stretching back to November 2019.

Manager Tite will be looking to Neymar to provide the spark in attack and the PSG forward has already shown his quality in the opening fixture. However, the backline has been the foundation for their recent good form with seven clean sheets from their last eight matches.

This will be Peru's first taste of action at this year’s Copa America having not featured on match-day one. Their last fixture was a 2-1 victory over Ecuador in the World Cup qualifiers with Christian Cueva and Luis Advincula getting the goals.

It was the first win in nine matches for Peru, who have not been at their best in recent times. They have lost six times in that run, including a 4-2 defeat to the Brazilians in a World Cup qualifying fixture back in October.

The goals have also not been forthcoming for Ricardo Gareca's men in recent times and have failed to score in three of their last four matches.

How the bookies view it

Brazil have been installed as overwhelming favourites among the bookies and are priced at 1/4 by bet365 to secure the win. A victory for Peru is priced at 11/1 by bet365, who are also offering odds of 5/1 for a draw.

The Brazilians been almost unstoppable in recent matches and should ease past Peru.

Head to head

Brazil have a 14-3 advantage with three draws from 20 previous matches against Peru. They have claimed four wins in the last five meetings and triumphed 4-2 in a World Cup qualifying fixture back in October with Neymar scoring a hat-trick.

Players to watch

Neymar has been in good form lately, scoring six goals in his last four matches for the Brazilians. The forward also netted a hat-trick the last time he faced Peru and is priced at 1/2 to score anytime by bet365, who are also offering 2/1 for the first goal.

Brazil’s defence has proved to be just as pivotal as their forward line with seven clean sheets from their last eight matches. Centre-backs Eder Militao and Marquinhos will be the ones to watch as they look to keep another clean sheet at 4/6 with bet365.

Anything else catch the eye?

Brazil are likely to be untroubled against Peru and could be backed to earn a win to nil at 5/6 with the same firm. The hosts could also be tipped in the – 2 handicap market at 7/4 with bet365.

The Brazilians are likely to score in both halves at 10/11 with bet365, who are also backing them to win both halves at 13/8. Brazil to win and Neymar to score anytime could also be considered at 4/6 with bet365.
