Match preview

2021 Copa America Semifinal, Brazil will play against with Peru home. Brazil's quarter-final clash with Chile was a cagey affair, but Lucas Paqueta's effort in the early stages of the second half ultimately proved enough for the host nation to secure their spot in the semi-finals. Tite's side actually had Gabriel Jesus sent off for a high kick on Eugenio Mena in the 48th minute, and Chile came close to a leveller when Ben Brereton's header hit the crossbar; Selecao are in the last four, though, and will be looking to defend the trophy that they lifted in 2019. Brazil disappointed in the Copa America between 2011 and 2016, being eliminated in the quarter-finals on two occasions, in addition to failing to make it out of the group stage in 2016. The South American nation beat Peru in the 2019 final, though, and will now take on the same opponents in the semi-finals two years later. The five-time world champions comfortably topped Group B, collecting 10 points from their four matches, scoring 10 times and conceding twice, and it would certainly be a surprise if they failed to progress to the final of this year's competition. Brazil have already beaten Peru in this tournament, recording a 4-0 victory in Rio de Janeiro on June 17, and they have only lost five of their previous 49 matches with their South American rivals in all competitions, which is an indication of the size of the task facing Ricardo Gareca's side.

Peru are unquestionably the underdogs heading into this semi-final, but it would be fair to say that they have impressed many with their performances at this year's Copa America. Aside from the 4-0 loss to Brazil, the White and Reds beat Colombia and Venezuela in the group stages, in addition to drawing with Ecuador, which saw them finish second in Group B behind their opponents here. Peru's quarter-final with Paraguay in Goias was a sensational affair, with the two teams playing out a 3-3 draw before Gareca's side recorded a 4-3 win on penalties. La Blanquirroja, as mentioned, reached the 2019 final, while they finished third at both the 2011 and 2015 competitions, which demonstrates their experience at this stage of the Copa America. Peru have not won this tournament since 1975, though, and they will need a lot to go in their favour on Monday evening in order to overcome the hosts and advance to the final at Maracana Stadium.

Ederson; Danilo, Marquinhos, T Silva, Lodi; Casemiro, Fred; Paqueta, Firmino, Richarlison; Neymar
