The duels between the teams have been commonplace in recent times. It will be the eighth clash with Tite in charge of the Seleção, since 2016, and the fourth within a year. During this period, Brazil had a large advantage, winning all the official games and losing only one friendly, played in the United States, in 2019.
The last matches were for Copa América, with a rout in the first phase (4-0) and a slim victory in the semifinals (1-0).
The overall record is also largely favorable for Brazil. In nearly 90 years of the confrontation, there were 35 wins, nine draws and five defeats – none in the qualifiers.
Brazil leads the competition with 100% success after seven games. Peru, on the other hand, is trying to recover after a bad start in the Qualifiers and is coming from a draw with Uruguay and a victory over Venezuela, both at home. With eight points in eight rounds, the selection led by Ricardo Gareca occupies the seventh place.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the confrontation will not have the presence of an audience.
It is worth remembering that the first four placed directly qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, while the fifth place competes in the repechage against a team from Oceania. According to mathematician Tristão Garcia, Brazil has a 99% chance of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.

Peru – Technician: Ricardo Gareca
Without being able to count on one of its main players, striker Paolo Guerrero, who is suspended, Peru bets on Lapadula. Also known as “Lapagol”, he is the son of an Italian father and has defended Azzurra.
Coach Ricardo Gareca will also be without Sergio Peña, who was injured in the game against Uruguay and also did not play against Venezuela at the weekend.
An old acquaintance of Brazilians, midfielder Cueva, ex-São Paulo and Santos, is one of Peru’s hopes. It was his winning goal in the last round.
Peru’s likely lineup is: Gallese, Advíncula, Santamaría, Callens and Marcos López; Tapia, Cartagena and Yotún; Carillo, Cueva and Lapadula.
Embezzlement: Guerrero (suspended) and Sergio Peña (injured).
