Brazil vs Peru Prediction
A place in the Copa America quarter-finals will be at stake when Brazil and Peru take on each other at Gillette Stadium in their final group game. The two teams are level on points ahead of Monday’s clash and seeing that the Selecao need one point from the game in order to book their place in the knockout stages, there is every chance Carlos Dunga’s troops will adopt a cautious approach against Peru. Taking everything into account, under 2.5 goals bet appears on the cards.
Betting Tip: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.87 (7/8) @10bet
