Brazil head into their opening Copa America fixture with Peru looking to record their 11th successive victory since their humiliating defeat against Germany at last year’s World Cup finals.

Peru enter the tournament as one of the minnows, but they will be keen to make a good impression after their surprise third place in Argentina four years ago.

Neymar in action for Brazil on November 18, 2014

Striker Neymar is expected to make his return to the starting lineup after linking up with the squad in the last few days.

One of Roberto Firmino or Diego Tardelli could also earn a start, while either Fabinho or Dani Alves will fill in for Daniloat right-back.

As far as Peru are concerned, Gareca is expected to use the majority of the team that began their draw with Mexico.

Fiorentina midfielder Juan Manuel Vargas could potentially be handed a role in the side should Garcea decide to add an experienced head to his lineup.

Head To Head

Unsurprisingly, Brazil have never lost against Peru in their 11 previous meetings, with the Verde-Amarela winning eight times since the first match at the 1970 World Cup.

Brazil began with five successive victories, but Peru have improved since the turn of the century with three draws coming in their last six games against their more illustrious opponents.

The last fixture took place in 2009 when a Luis Fabiano double helped Brazil to a 3-0 triumph during the qualifying campaign for the World Cup.


 

We say: Brazil 4-0 Peru

Despite an unconvincing display against Honduras in their last match, Brazil should have little trouble in overcoming Peru, who haven’t shown the form to suggest that they can record a positive result against a team who have a 100% record since September.
