class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The hosts have been in imperious form and are good value to put in another impressive defensive showing against their misfiring opponents this week
Brazil host Peru at the Itaipava Arena on Thursday with Tite’s side aiming to extend their perfect record in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.
The five-time world champions have won all seven of their matches in the tournament and, despite the surreal circumstances surrounding the abandonment of their weekend match with Argentina, La Canarinha will be confident of claiming another victory against Peru.

Peru, for their part, are the third-lowest scorers, managing just eight goals in their seven games and the visitors look to be in for another difficult evening in the final third.
These sides met twice at the Copa America this summer, with Brazil managing a clean sheet on both occasions, their 1-0 win in the last four preceded by a 4-0 group-stage victory and backing the hosts to record another shutout makes plenty of sense.
Peru have failed to score three times already in the qualifying tournament and against the outstanding team in the competition they are likely to struggle.
Brazil vs Peru tips & predictions
The hosts are offered at 5/6 (1.83) to keep another clean sheet, while both teams to score ‘no’ is priced at 4/6 (1.66).
