Another day at the office. Brazil turned the page on the controversy of the superclassic and returned to the routine of the South American qualifiers. It defeated Peru without suffering (2-0) and added its eighth consecutive victory in the eight games played. A 24 of 24 that leaves those of Tite virtually with the passport stamped for Qatar 2022 when the first round is over.

Arena Pernambuco Stadium (Recife). Behind closed doors.
The version of team B, without the nine Premier League players prevented from traveling, convinced. Brazil played mild. The presence of Gerson He provided fluidity in the ball exit to which was added the automatisms with his former colleagues at Flamengo, Everton Ribeiro and Gabigol. The ecosystem, in which a Lucas Paquetá in frank progression, enhanced the virtues of Neymar. The proposal of Tite It had nothing to do with the rocky and bureaucratic team that won a week ago in Chile (0-1) asking for the time.
The brave approach of Peru, risking and going out to bite up, helped the show. The Seleçao knew how to interpret the spaces offered by its rival. Gerson had it in a face to face in which Gallese made the paradón of the night (min. 9). However, the next time, the match broke down. Neymar, with a very clear push, stole Santamaría’s wallet, and served the second suit so that Everton Ribeiror, free coming from behind, score a goal that should have been disallowed. Brazil did not need a favor of this size, endorsed by the omission of the VAR.
It was a good first half, with a high circulation of the ball, nerve and two teams proposing. It just lacked a bit of finesse. Brazil was better and scored the second at the end of the break, on a rebound that Neymar hunted at the far post. The 10 of PSG, who suffered a hard marking during the 90 minutes, marked the differences in the two goals.
THE SELEÇAO LOWERED THE REVOLUTIONS
Brazil managed efforts after the break and took their foot off the gas in a clear exercise in pragmatism. Although Ricardo Gareca He quickly put four men on refreshment, the Albirroja crashed before his own offensive limitations, which increased the local timing.
The Seleçao abdicated scoring and Peru could not find the way to disturb Weverton. And, without undefined objectives, the party became cloudy and ugly. The claw drifted into a shower of untimely tickets. The fuze did not explode, although Neymar he lost his temper at the last minute and almost did not make a mess.
