After Neymar became the all-time leading goal scorer in Brazil international history last week, he will look to chase a new all-time record as the Selecao travel to Peru for a CONMEBOL World Cup qualifier.

The 31-year-old passed Pele for the top spot on Brazil’s career goal-scoring charts with his 78th and 79th international goals in a 5-1 demolition of South American minnows Bolivia on Friday. With that milestone now secured, Neymar is chasing the global all-time assists record, held by Landon Donovan of the United States, a mark of which he is just two shy.

With three points in their qualification opener, Brazil already hold one foot in the 2026 World Cup thanks to FIFA’s expansion of the tournament field. Thus, individual records will carry the narrative for much of their qualifying journey this cycle and beyond.

Peru began their 2026 cycle with a drab 0-0 draw on the road at Paraguay, out-shot 19-5 as they simply held on for dear life after falling to 10 men just before halftime. After qualifying for the 2022 World Cup via the intercontinental playoff, the road point is valuable, but fans will be hoping for more signs of life to avoid such a narrow way in this time around.

Peru vs Brazil projected lineups & team news

After being sent off for a second booking just before halftime of their qualifying opener last week, Luis Advincula is suspended for this game, meaning Aldo Corzo of domestic side Universitario de Deportes will step in at right-back.

Changes are made up front by head coach Juan Reynoso, moving to a 4-3-3, but captain Paolo Guerrero will stay at striker to earn his 11th cap. Wingers Andy Polo and Andre Carrillo keep their places, which means  21-year-old playmaker Jostin Alarcon will have to wait to earn his first international cap.

Orlando City goalkeeper Pedro Gallese – whose six saves in the draw with Paraguay secured a point – will likely continue between the posts.

Peru starting lineup (4-3-3): Gallese (GK) — Corzo, Lopez, Abram, Trauco — Cartagena, Tapia, Yotun — Polo, Guerrero, Carrillo.

New interim Brazil head coach Fernando Diniz made changes against Bolivia in his debut with Neymar a surprise inclusion due to his lack of minutes with Saudi club Al Hilal, but here in the second qualifier he installs an unchanged XI. Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior is sidelined through injury, while Antony and Lucas Paqueta were both withdrawn from the squad due to legal issues.

Man City goalkeeper Ederson was given the start on Friday, and Diniz leaves him installed in net rather than affording Alisson an opportunity. The Liverpool man was statistically the best goalkeeper in the Premier League last season and is already off to a solid start this young season. Another swap could be made up front, as Richarlison struggled at the striker position, but he’s deployed again instead of offering Gabriel Jesus a chance.

Casemiro wore the captain’s armband against Bolivia last time out, signaling a change from the longtime skipper Marquinhos.

Brazil starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Alisson (GK) — Danilo, Gabriel, Marquinhos, Lodi — Casemiro, Guimaraes — Raphinha, Neymar, Rodrygo — Richarlison.

Peru vs Brazil betting odds & lines

Brazil roasted Bolivia last time out, and while this match isn’t expected to be nearly as lopsided, Peru’s poor performance has shattered any shadow of confidence in a home upset result.

Neymar, searching for the all-time international assists lead, is a heavy favourite to follow up his brace last time out with another goal in this match, while Gabriel Jesus and Richarlison are also thought likely to score. Interestingly, despite a brace of his own against Bolivia, Rodrygo is not amongst the expected goal scorers for Brazil, according to bookmakers.
