Peru and Brazil have faced each other 47 times previously, including three times in 2019. Most notably, the two sides met in July 2019 for the final of the Copa America tournament in Brazil.

Everton Soares opened the scoring before Paolo Guerrero equalised from the penalty spot. Gabriel Jesus restored Brazil’s lead moments before half-time, and Richarlison’s penalty made sure of the victory in second-half stoppage time. Brazil ended the match with 10 men following Gabriel Jesus’ sending off.
