Watch Brazil vs. Peru live stream free in first round action of the Copa America from Estadio Municipal Bicentenario Germán Becker in Temuco.
Brazil has much to prove to itself and its fans after the rather disastrous exit from the World Cup it hosted last summer, which they thought would surely avenge its worst nightmare, the Maracanazo of 1950. Back then it was Uruguay who destroyed their dreams of winning a World Cup at home in 2014, it was Germany who crushed them 7-1.
But Brazil first has to play its scheduled match against Peru in a debut that promises to have much action. Since their devastating loss against Germany in the semifinals, Dunga has turned the team around. They have been almost unstoppable, which means there is intense pressure to deliver.
No matter what happened at the 2014 World Cup or how convincingly they lost to the current World Cup champions, Brazil is always a favorite to win it all and should not be underestimated. If you watch Brazil vs. Peru live stream, you will see whether the Seleção can put the demons of last year behind it.
Brazil has won their last 10-matches almost unopposed and only conceding two goals. Impressive for a team that reached one of the lowest points in its history nearly a year ago.
However, the match against Peru is the first real test in a competitive setting for Dunga’s men. Of course, all eyes will be on the flashy Brazilian captain, Neymar, but goalkeeper Jefferson knows this is it, time to prove what their team is made of.
“The real kick-off is now, there are many national teams in transition, such as Argentina and Uruguay.
“It will be good for us to continue to grow in the competition which will certainly be a good preparation for the 2018 World Cup (qualifiers).”
Watch Brazil vs. Peru live stream to see if the eight-time Copa America champions can redeem themselves in the eyes of their loyal fans. In 2011, Chile’s neighbor to the north finished in third place, after defeating Venezuela, but falling to Uruguay, which would go on to win the tournament.
Peru’s assistant coach, Nolberto Solano, said that his team will not sit back and defend against Brazil.
“We know that the Brazilian are strong and can hurt you at any time, but the group is strong and motivated to play a good game on Sunday,” he added.
