The numbers of Tite in only four months in the control of the Brazilian selection are already historical. They are six wins in six games, 17 goals scored and only one. It is only the second time in history that the Seleção has won six straight victories, equaling the mythical generation of Pelé, Rivellino, Tostão and Gérson who achieved the same numbers before winning the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.
Gabriel Jesus, Coutinho and Neymar are still in tune and were decisive to break the hard punching Peruvian armed by Gareca, that made difficult the life of the striker of Barcelona that had a party more discreet than normal and went blank for the first time since the Arrival of the new coach.
The party began in high speed and with a peruvian Peru, attacking without fear to the Canarinha. Cueva, Guerrero, and Carrillo were in great danger with their walls and plucks. Carrillo hit a ball to the post and Cueva almost scored in a couple of occasions. But Brazil knew how to defend themselves and to have patience to wait for their moment, that did not come until the 57 minutes of the second part.
Renato Augusto started on the right wing and centered for Coutinho who tried to finish. The ball slipped in the Peruvian defense and was lost on the penalty spot where Gabriel Jesus was only marking. The Palmeiras forward dominated, lifted his head, chose the side and ended with a bomb. No chances for Gallese.
Peru went on the attack with urgency. He bittered the eighth position with 14 points and a draw did not help him in his mission to reach Russia 2018. But he paid for an error of his defense at the time of leaving with the ball in the minute 78, Gabriel Jesus took advantage. The forward dominated from the left and touched for Renato Augusto who, within the area, finished off to the right of Gallese.
Brazil and Peru return to the field on March 23 and 28. The Canarinha faces Uruguay and Paraguay while Gareca’s team faces Venezuela and Uruguay.
