Peru and Brazil go head-to-head at the Estadio Nacional de Lima in the World Cup qualifying showdown.
The 85th-minute equalizer from Andre Carrillo saw Peru seal a 2-2 draw against Paraguay in their opening World Cup qualifier, meaning they are now winless in four matches in a row (D2, L2). For ‘La Blanquirroja,’ goals have been at a premium lately, as they have netted under 1.5 goals in eight of their previous ten outings, drawing a blank in the first half on seven of those occasions. However, Ricardo Gareca’s men are unbeaten in seven World Cup qualifying games (W3, D4), scoring precisely twice per match in five. Yet, against Brazil, they have lost three of their last four competitive H2H meetings (W1), each via at least a two-goal margin.
As for the visitors, they go into this encounter on the back of two consecutive triumphs, including a 5-0 thumping of Bolivia in their World Cup qualifying curtain-raiser. But, before that, the ‘Seleção’ had gone five games winless (D3, L2), scoring one goal or less in four. When it comes to their recent World Cup qualifying performances, Tite’s men have been nothing short of outstanding, picking up 11 victories from their last 13 such fixtures (D2). Furthermore, five of their previous six such matches have yielded a clean sheet, which has been the case in both of their last trips to Peru. Additionally, Brazil have run out winners in five of their previous seven visits to this country (W5, D2), securing a multi-goal win in four.
