The final group stage of Copa América in Group A will take place on Saturday. Peru will play against Brazil and Bolivia will play against Venezuela. For Venezuela to have a chance to move on to the second stage they need to score at least 3 goals against Bolivia, meaning a draw between Peru and Brazil might take them both to the quarter finals. The Geeks are totally hooked!
Peru proved their strength by coming back from a 0-1 situation to defeating Bolivia 3-1. With a draw against Brazil they will have a good chance to move on to the second stage. We will probably see a defensive approach from Peru with focus on counter-attacks and set pieces. Peru will look to their top players and veterans Paulo Guerrero and Jefferson Farfan to make a difference.

After a disappointing goalless draw against Venezuela in their second game, Brazil will be looking to clinch top position in Group A with a win over Peru. Brazil had three goals disallowed in the draw with Venezuela due to VAR, but their performance was anything but good. Tite’s troops need to improve their game if they are to win against Peru and to have a chance to with the trophy. And Saturday’s game against Peru will be anything but easy for Tite´s team. Brazil have no injuries or suspensions to consider but will probably do some changes due to the poor performance against Venezuela
