Peru vs Brazil: Brazil 1 Peru 0 RESULT Neymar’s Brilliant Assist for Lucas Paqueta’s Winner Leads Selecao to Copa America Final. After a win against Peru 1 -0, Neymar’s excellent support has led Brazil to the second straight Copa America Final, which transpired at the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Stadium.
Before Lucas Paqueta, who scored the winner for a second in a straight line in the fourth quarter-finals, following his achievements with Paraguay, the Paris St Germain superstar threw three defenders down.
During the first half, Tite’s (Adenor Leonardo Bacchi) got to grips with Peru and had a few fantastic chances to score extra goals in the first round and put pressure on earlier in the game.
After eight minutes, Paqueta gave a lovely ball and found Richarlison in the vicinity of the six-yard box. The star from Everton dribbled past Pedro Gaulse but felt at a narrow-angle, passing the ball back to Neymar.
Gallese had a spectacular first half that saw him rescue Peru with impressive saves to add to his tally.
A long-range attempt by Casemiro was blocked by Blanquirroja’s captain, along with two nearby tries by Neymar and Richarlison.
Orlando City keeper could not keep a clean sheet since Neymar dribbled past Alexander Callens, Christian Ramos and Aldo Corzo just 10 minutes before halftime before and passed the ball to Pacqueta, who made the most of this open chance and scored the goal.
Peru, who were outplayed in the first half, regained their composure and came back more robust in the second half thanks to the introduction of two replacements, Raziel Garcia and Marcos Lopez.
Peru’s best chance came when Callens headed the ball from a set-piece, but he was unable to convert because Ederson stepped in the way of the back of the net.
Brazil has advanced to the finals, where it will face either Argentina or Columbia. Whoever loses will compete for third place against Peru.
