Brazil has beaten Peru 1-0 to move into the final at Copa America

Brazil arrived at the Copa America last after a first-half objective from Lucas Paqueta — his second in two games — gave them a 1-0 success over Peru on Monday. 

The host country will play the champ of Tuesday's other semi-last among Argentina and Colombia in the title decider at the Maracana arena on Saturday. 

Brazil have won the Copa America each time they facilitated the competition and in the early piece of Monday's match showed precisely why they are top picks to do as such once more. 

Inside the initial 20 minutes Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese made two point-clear saves in progression from Neymar and Richarlison in addition to another two squares when Casemiro took a stab from farther. 

With Paqueta, who scored the champ in their 1-0 quarter-last win over Chile, a champion in midfield, Brazil played some complex, nervy football, loaded with flicks, nutmegs and backheels however it took them 35 minutes to break the halt. 


Neymar beat three men on the left and cut the ball across objective for Paqueta to volley home from 10 meters. 

"It was an extreme game, hard battled," Paqueta said. 

"They are an exceptionally solid side however we figured out how to endure a troublesome spell." 

Neymar rushed to sing his partner's commendations and said there was more to come. 

"Paqueta is an extraordinary player, he's improving with each game," he added. "He had an incredible season with his club and here he is showing that he can be a vital player for Brazil." 

While Brazil were in the power in the initial time frame it was an alternate story in the second half as the presentation of Marcos Lopez and Raziel Garcia at the break shook Peru alert. 

Losing finalists in 2019, Peru pushed forward looking for an equalizer with Gianluca Lapadula constraining Ederson into a key square, with the Brazil goalkeeper looking uncomfortable two or three different events. 

Peru stuck Brazil back for long spells of the subsequent half yet couldn't make the most of their ownership as the home side stretched out their unbeaten race to 13 games.
