Alternative Condensed Highlights:
Brazil are coming into the final game of their 2016 copa america group stage with a resounding 7-1 win where Philipe Coutinho tore Haiti apart scoring a hattrick while Renato Augusto also grabbed a bace. Highly rated Gabriel came on in second half to get on the scoresheet. Having said that their fist game against Ecuador was a 0-0 draw and Peru will provide even stiffer challenge.
Last time these two meet was back in Copa America 2015 when Brazil came from behind to win the group game 2-1 thanks to Neymar and Douglas Costa goals. Both of them are missing from this Brazilian squad and tonights game will be a major test of Dunga young side.
We can expect Dunga to start with youngster Gabriel upfront after his lively performances in both of the first two games. Gabriel is pretty much into the mould of Neymar and big European clubs will be keeping an eye on this youngster who has so far rose to the occassion.
Brazil Possible Lineup: Alisson, Miranda, Marquinhos, Dani Alves, Filipe Luis, Casemiro, Philippe Coutinho, Lucas Moura, Willian, Jonas/Gabriel
Predictions: Peru on the other hand have went into wilderness as far as their recent FIFA rankings are concerned, currently sitting in 61st place Peru once was a decent South American team and their performances in the Copa America since 1997 has been pretty good where they qualified for quarter finals 4 times and semifinals twice. This should be an easy win for Brazil.
