Hosts Brazil will hope to secure their first Copa America title since 2007 when they face Peru before an eager home group at the Maracana on Sunday evening. BRAZIL will play Peru in what is set to be an intoxicating Copa America final. Dani Alves lead his team to a 2-0 win over a star-studded Argentine side, while Peru succeeded all expectations and beat holders Chile 3-0.
The Copa America final will take place on Sunday, July 7. Bangladesh time 2 am . It will kick off at 9pm UK time – that is 5pm Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The final will be held at Estadio do Maracana in Rio de Janeiro.
Brazil, without the injured Neymar for the duration of this year’s Copa, will be missing Chelsea’s Willian, who has a minor hamstring issue. Fernandinho (knee) and Richarlison (illness) remain doubtful, although Filipe Luis could return. For Peru, veteran forward Jefferson Farfan (knee) will not play in the final.
Brazil 11: Alisson, Alves, Marquinhos, Silva, Filipe Luis, Casemiro, Arthur, Coutinho, Everton, Firmino, Jesus
Peru 11:Gallese, Advincula, Zambrano, Abram, Trauco, Yotun, Tapia, Carrillo, Cueva, Flores, Guerrero
Prediction: Brazil 2-0 Peru
Brazil have won every Copa played on home soil and it would be a real surprise if they fail to maintain that record in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday night.
