Hosts Brazil takes on Peru for the right to crowned champions of South America. It all comes down to this.
So, even without Neymar, Brazil have been able to qualify, fairly easily, for the final of the 2019 Copa America. A strong defensive display kept Argentina out in the semi final before Roberto Firmino confirmed the victory with the second goal of the night. Confidence will be high in the Brazil camp – and Tite may even keep his job now.
Although Brazil have cruised through the tournament so far they have had a little trouble from Venezuela and Paraguay – two unfancied nations that both kept them to goalless draw. This has been a team effort from the hosts, rather than relying on the talents of just one or two superstars. They will go into the final as favourites with the bookies – and fully deserve that billing.
Peru only qualified for the knock out rounds as the highest ranked third placed team – but they have gone about their business in a determined manner and have deserved their place in the final. The semi final victory over Chile was a master class in pace and energy but the final will be a different proposition all together. Brazil could win 2-0.
