Copa America Final 2019, Brazil vs Peru Highlights: Although Peru started with purpose and real intent against Brazil at Maracana, their early efforts were soon made irrelevant after Everton broke the deadlock in the 15th minute, after a brilliant piece of skill and cross from Gabriel Jesus. After Brazil scored, Peru equalised on the 44th minute from the spot, before Gabriel Jesus restored the lead in the death of the first half.

The second half started off with a bang, because of a barrage of bookings. But things turned interesting when Gabriel Jesus was sent off in the 70th minute for two yellows. Richarlison sealed the fate of the Brazilians with a late penalty, making it 3-1 against Peru at the final whistle.

Mayhem and madness

HALFTIME! BRA 2-1 PER!

The goal from Guerrero levelled it up, but Gabriel Jesus restored it within 6 minutes. Peru have been lively from the start and they got their reward, but they went back to square one again.  So far, it has been a really energetic and entertaining match.

PENALTY FOR PERU! Cueva was carrying on with the ball inside the Brazil penalty box, but Thiago Silva handles it. Tobar goes to VAR and confirms it.

02:10 (IST)08 Jul 2019
Peru clueless

Edison Flores is trying to come up with something, and that is chasing long balls in the opposition half so far. Peru are making it far into their half, but they are yet to have a proper shot at goal since that Yotun long shot inside ten minutes. There's no lack of pressing and intensity from the team in white and red though.

02:08 (IST)08 Jul 2019
CHANCE!

After a brilliant passing move, where Firmino dropped deep to pass the ball back to midfield which got around to Alex Sandro. He then crosses it in to the far post, where the Liverpool forward was lurking and he heads it over. BRA 1-0 PER, 36 mins.

Casemiro warned fans that there would be no repeat of the 5-0 group-stage thrashing of Peru when the two sides meet in Sunday's Copa America final. Casemiro opened the scoring in their Group A encounter when hosts Brazil ran away with the match as Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese had a day to forget, entirely at fault for Brazil's second goal scored by Roberto Firmino and guilty of hesitancy for the opener and poor positioning for the third goal by Everton.
