Brazil coach Tite and defender Marquinhos spoke to media on the eve of the third round of the Group A of the Copa America against Peru.

Under pressure after two lackluster performances by Brazil in the Copa America at home, coach Tite is expected to make changes to his squad ahead of its final group game this weekend.

Brazil faces Peru on Saturday in Sao Paulo needing at least a draw to guarantee a place in the next round of the South American competition. Few doubt Brazil will make it through, as the "Selecao" can advance even with a loss, but only a convincing performance will satisfy the demanding Brazilian fans and relieve some of the pressure on Tite.

The coach's main changes are expected in the attack, which has been the team's primary weakness.

Brazil and Peru are tied at the top of Group A with four points, two more than third-place Venezuela. Bolivia has no points after two matches. Venezuela and Bolivia meet in Belo Horizonte on Saturday.
