Brazil will take on Peru in the 2019 Copa America final on Sunday and the hosts will fancy their chances of claiming overall glory.

1) Everton to score anytime

Gremio forward Everton was a bit of an unknown quantity outside of Brazil before the Copa got underway, but he has scored twice at the tournament to date, including in the 5-0 thrashing of Peru during the group stage.

The 23-year-old has formed part of a three-pronged attack for Brazil at the tournament alongside Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus and he could be playing his club football alongside the latter next season following recent reports linking him with a switch to Manchester City.

Everton could further underline his case for a move to a big European league by notching during Sunday's final and he is priced at 23/10 to be an anytime scorer.

2) Brazil to win and Gabriel Jesus to score

City forward Jesus seems to be finding form just at the right time, as he scored his first goal of the tournament during the Selecao's semi-final victory over Argentina and he also assisted Roberto Firmino for the second in that 2-0 win.

The 22-year-old hasn't always been appreciated by the Brazil fans, but his goal record at international level stands at one in every two and you can back him at 13/10 to score and for the Selecao to win.

3) Casemiro to be carded

It is unlikely that Brazil will have it all their own way against Peru like they did when the two teams met during the group stage, as La Blanquirroja have grown in confidence as the tournament has developed and that was showcased during their semi-final victory over Chile.

Ricardo Gareca's side have tricky attacking players like Andre Carrillo and Edison Flores, who could both lure the odd Brazilian player into a rash challenge.

Real Madrid defensive midfielder Casemiro is perhaps one of the most likely candidates to dive into a challenge and he is certainly no stranger to a yellow card, as he has been booked 30 times in La Liga over the last four seasons.

The 27-year-old has also been cautioned twice in this tournament, including against Peru during the group stage, and he is priced at an enticing 15/8 to be carded once again on Sunday.
