Copa america 2019: Brazil prepare to face Peru ahead of the Copa America final

Host Brazil continued with their preparations on Saturday ahead of the Copa America final against underdogs Peru at the Stadium Maracana on Sunday.

Brazil has won all four Copa America editions it hosted, the last in 1989 when Romario scored the winner against Uruguay at the same Maracana.

Only two weeks ago the Brazilians crushed their neighbors 5-0 at Sao Paulo's Arena Corinthians, with goals by Casemiro, Roberto Firmino, Everton, Dani Alves and Willian. It could have been six for the hosts if Gabriel Jesus had not missed a penalty near the end. That result nearly eliminated the Peruvians from the tournament.

Brazil is chasing its ninth Copa title and first since 2007. Peru won in 1939 and 1975.
