Brazil Argentina Copa America 2019
The hosts boast a superb defensive record and we are backing them to lift their ninth Copa America title without a conceding a goal on Sunday night

Brazil recorded the biggest win of the Copa America when they beat Peru 5-0 in the group stages and the two nations meet again in Sunday's final.

Both sides came through penalty shoot-out wins in the last eight, before winning to nil in the semi-finals, yet while their respective paths to the showpiece may have similarities, there is little doubt that Tite's men are overwhelming favourties.

Latest odds

Brazil are hosting the Copa America for a fifth time and the four previous times they have played the tournament on home soil, they have emerged as champions.

The Selecao are offered at 1/3 (1.33) with bet365 to win in 90 minutes and at 1/7 (1.14) to lift the trophy. Peru are priced at 17/2 (9.50) to win without extra time and at 11/2 (5.50) to lift their first Copa America title since 1975.

Team news

Filipe Luis missed the semi-final success over Argentina with a thigh problem, although he could be in line to return.

The front four of Gabriel Jesus, Everton, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho have all started the last three matches and should do once more on Sunday.

Peru remain without their second all-time leading goalscorer Jefferson Farfan. 

Preview

Peru have now been semi-finalists in three of the last four editions of the Copa America, yet this is their first final appearance for 44 years.

Ricardo Gareca's men were extremely fortunate to get passed Uruguay in the quarter-finals with La Celeste having three goals ruled out as well as missing some glorious chances.

Peru also made the most of some comically poor Chilean defending in the semi-finals while also riding their luck as La Roja hit the woodwork and missed a penalty.

Brazil have reached Sunday's showdown without conceding a goal and their only defeat in 31 matches was a quarter-final loss to Belgium at last summer's World Cup.

The weight of expectation will be huge for the hosts in the Maracana but since Tite took over nearly three years ago, the side have generally delivered when required and they should be able to do so once more.

Tips and predictions

Peru's last win over Brazil came in June 2016 in what proved to be Dunga's final match in charge. Since Tite took over Brazil have beaten Peru twice, both without conceding, while the side's record in competitive games under the former Corinthians coach is exceptional.

In 22 competitive matches with Tite at the helm, Brazil have lost just one and kept 17 clean sheets. Indeed the five-time World Cup winners have kept 13 clean sheets in their last 15 matches, including in each of their last seven and the price of 9/10 (1.90) for them to win to nil is surely of interest. 

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
