Brazil will take on Peru in the last match of Group B of Copa America 2016 at the Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts on Sunday. There are a number of scenarios that can happen depending on the result of the Ecuador vs Haiti match.
If Ecuador defeat Haiti, they are through to the quarter-finals of Copa America 2016. This game will happen ahead of Brazil vs Peru. Thus, if Ecuador win, the Brazil and Peru match will become a virtual knockout game.
If Brazil and Peru end up drawing the match, both teams can make it to the quarter finals of Copa America 2016. Brazil will obviously stay above Peru because of the goal difference. Peru can make it to the last eight as one of the third-placed teams among all the groups.
Coming back to the game, Brazil will look to continue with the momentum they gained by thrashing minnows Haiti in their previous game.
Meanwhile Peru, too, have looked good in this edition of Copa America. They could have sailed into the quarter-finals if they had managed to hold on to their lead against Ecuador. They would have banged their heads against the wall after that result. But one cannot simply ponder such results, and now they have a mountain to climb as they run into an upbeat Brazilian side.
For Brazil, Philippe Coutinho will be one of the players to watch out for as he scored a hat-trick in the last game against Haiti. Two of them came from two sublime strikes and one he converted from a through pass. The Liverpool star will look to emulate that performance against Peru.
Coach Dunga is confident that Coutinho will make good use of this opportunity and come out all guns blazing against Peru as well.
"Coutinho is taking advantage of his opportunity. With every game and every practice, his confidence is growing. We talked with him for him to be the Coutinho of Liverpool, dictate play, lead and take risks," Dunga was quoted as saying by ESPN.
