The quarter-final match between Brazil and Chile was tense, but Lucas Paqueta’s attempt in the early parts of the second half was enough for the home nation to advance to the semi-finals.
Tite’s team saw Gabriel Jesus sent off in the 48th minute for a high kick on Eugenio Mena, and Chile came near to equalizing when Ben Brereton’s header struck the crossbar; however, the Selecao is in the final four and will be seeking to defend the crown they won in 2019.
Between 2011 and 2016, Brazil struggled at the Copa America, losing in the quarter-finals on two occasions and failing to advance past the group stage in 2016.
But, after defeating Peru in 2019 final, the South American nation would face the same opponents in the semi-finals two years later.
The five-time world champions won Group B with ten points from four matches, scoring ten times and conceding twice, and it would be surprising if they did not go to the final of this year’s competition.
