Brazil vs Peru: Team news & key stats
Brazil are without any of their Premier League-based players meaning the likes of Alisson, Fabinho, Roberto Firmino, Ederson, Gabriel Jesus, Thiago Silva and Fred are all missing.
Third-choice goalkeeper Weverton is likely to start once more, with Gabriel Barbosa set to be paired with Neymar up front.
Peru have no major absentees and look set to field a similar starting XI to the one which beat Venezuela at the weekend.
- Brazil’s dominance of this competition has stemmed from their exceptional defensive record, with the side conceding just twice in seven matches.
- Peru, for their part, are the third-lowest scorers, managing just eight goals in their seven games and the visitors look to be in for another difficult evening in the final third.
- These sides met twice at the Copa America this summer, with Brazil managing a clean sheet on both occasions, their 1-0 win in the last four preceded by a 4-0 group-stage victory and backing the hosts to record another shutout makes plenty of sense.
- Peru have failed to score three times already in the qualifying tournament and against the outstanding team in the competition they are likely to struggle.
