Brazil 5 – Peru 0
Brazil coasted to their second win at the 2019 Copa America on Saturday night against Peru.
The home nation opened their campaign with a 3-0 win against Bolivia.
However, Brazil were poor in a 0-0 draw against Venezuela on matchday two.
Unfortunately for Peru, they were steamrollered this weekend, as Brazil rediscovered their scoring touch.
Goals from Casemiro, Roberto Firmino and Everton put Brazil 3-up at the break.
Dani Alves and Willian scored in the second-half, while Gabriel Jesus missed a late penalty.

Roberto Firmino was back on the scoresheet against Peru.
After a terrible mistake by the Peruvian keeper in the 19th minute, Firmino capitalised to score.
As is his trademark, Firmino put the ball in the net with another no-look finish.
