Punters rarely get the chance to see two teams playing against one another twice in one tournament, but this is exactly what will happen in the 2019 Copa America final.
Brazil trashed Peru 5-0 in their previous match in the tournament and forced the Peruvians to qualify for the elimination rounds via their third place finish. This defeat will certainly be in the back of the Peruvians minds coming into the match and judging by their recent performances they will probably go into it with a point to prove.
A Tough Match
This means that betting enthusiasts should be ready for a very tough match in which both teams will be careful not to concede a goal, especially not in the opening stages of the match.
The Peruvians have had this approach in their last two elimination matches and it definitely bore fruit for them as they didn’t concede a goal in both matches and progressed through to the final.
Similarly, Brazil have also played a very compact type of football and are through to the final after keeping a clean sheet in all of their previous matches.
Brazil to Win, Eventually
This means that punters should bet on betting propositions which state that there won’t be lots of goals in the match, especially not in the first half. Backing the match to finish with fewer than 2.5 goals comes with good odds of 4/5, while backing the first half to end 0-0 comes with enticing odds of 7/4.
However, we don’t think that the match will end in a draw, especially as Brazil have got too much firepower in them and that cannot be contained. That’s why we advise punters to go for the Draw – Brazil betting proposition in the half time – full time market which comes with excellent odds of 12/5.
Furthermore, punters can even go for the correct score market and back Brazil to win 1-0 at odds of 4/1. Finally, we think that the scorer of that solitary goal will be none other than Roberto Firmino and that’s why we back Firmino to score first at odds of 9/2.
