After Ecuador time and time again ran through the Brazilian defense like battering rams in Quito, it must have been a relief to face Peru, the bottom dwellers of the group. Luis Fabiano who toiled in vain against Ecuador scored two and Felipe Melo who was turned inside out by Cristian Benitez in that game scored the third goal. Brazil brushed aside Peru, 3-0.
With this win Brazil secures the second spot behind Paraguay. On third is Chile with Argentina slipping to fourth after their historic beating by Bolivia.
