Copa America 2021: 10-men Brazil defeats Chile to face Peru in the semi-finals


Brazil won the quarter-finals match against Chile despite being 10-men down.

Brazil had their best early chance just after 20 minutes when Neymar picked out Roberto Firmino at Claudio Bravo’s far post, but the Liverpool striker missed the target altogether when he looked more likely to score.

Jesus had a good chance to fire Brazil in front shortly before half-time after being played in by Neymar, but his shot was tipped well over the bar by Bravo and the teams remained level at 0-0 at the break.

A horrendous tackle by Gabriel Jesus had him sent off and Brazil was down to 10-men with 30 minutes left. However, the Brazilians stayed strong and kept Chile at bay.
