Brazil will be aiming to return back to winning ways after a frustrating draw with Venezuela and has increased the pressure on coach Tite.

Coach Tite spoke earlier with media and said, “Take my word of honour that there was nothing, the word of honour.”

“If you have to pay this price to win, I’ll take my cap and go home.”

Hosts Brazil needs at least a draw in their final Group A match to be certain of a place in the last eight.

But a victory over Peru would guarantee them a place in the quarters.

Both teams have 4 points from 2 games, and both have drawn games against Venezuela.

The Barcelona playmaker Phillipe Coutinho said to the local media, “We have a lot of motivation for this game, a very important game.

“It is certainly a very difficult game, against a very strong opponent, as everyone in the Copa America is.

“We have one more day of work and (the coaches) will be passing on to us all the information so that we are aware of everything.”

After the draw with Venezuela, the Brazilian team was booed off the pitch by home fans.

The Neymar less Brazil has lacked creativity but has players who can make a difference.

Earlier, Neymar visited the team in Sao Paolo ahead of their clash with Peru.

Coincidentally, At the 2016 Copa America, Brazil went into their third group game against Peru on a record of one win and one draw. Then they lost 1-0, were eliminated from the competition and coach Dunga lost his job, to be replaced by Tite.
