Brazil and Peru renew acquaintance once more when they collide in the Copa America 2021 semi-final at Estadio Olimpico Nilton Santos.

A repeat of the 2019 Copa final, the two sides have already played each other in this tournament, with Brazil coming out on top in their Group B encounter.

Peru will be eager to avoid a similar outcome to that game and they will need a major effort if they are to pull off an upset against Neymar and Co. to reach the final.
