The Copa America 2021 is back with a crucial semi-final clash this week as Brazil host Peru at the Olympic Stadium on Monday. Tite's Brazil outfit is one of the most impressive teams in South America at the moment and holds the upper hand going into this game.
Peru have been inconsistent in Copa America 2021 but have managed to fight their way to the semi-finals. The Peruvians stunned Paraguay in a penalty shoot-out last week and could potentially pull off a massive upset in this fixture.
Brazil, on the other hand, are arguably the favourites to win the Copa America this year and are one of only two unbeaten teams in the competition at the moment. The Selecao were given a run for their money by Chile in the quarterfinals and will hope for a more comfortable outing against Peru this week.
