Live stream Brazil vs Peru Copa America Final on Foxtel Now
To stream Copa America on Foxtel Now you will need to pay for the Essentials pack, which costs $25/month, and pay $29/month on top of that for the Sport pack, totalling $54/month. It comes with a 10-day free trial for new customers.
Watch Brazil vs Peru Copa America Final on beIN Sports Connect
beIN SPORTS CONNECT is available as a standalone service and costs $19.99/month (or $199/year) and offers a two-week free trial. While this is a cheaper deal than Kayo and Foxtel, it doesn't come with as many channels. The three beIN SPORTS channels are available on Kayo and Foxtel, as are eight Fox Sports channels and two ESPN channels, so there's a much larger range of sports on offer there.
Watch Brazil vs Peru Copa America Final via Fetch TV
Another option is through Fetch. Customers can add the beIN SPORTS pack for $19.99/month, with no lock-in contract. You'll need to already have the Fetch box and service running, and that monthly charge would be on top of what you already pay.
2019 Copa America preview
As hosts, Brazil come into the tournament as favourites, even though they're missing Neymar through injury. Before the 2014 World Cup, Brazil had been unbeaten for 39 years at home in competitive matches, but then the "Mineirazo" happened, as Germany beat them in 7-1 in the semi-final on the way to becoming world champions. While the Seleção do still have one of the strongest squads in the tournament, even without Neymar, the players will be under pressure to deliver and not suffer as they did in 2014.
This tournament represents one of the last chances for Lionel Messi to win a senior trophy for La Albiceleste, though Argentina are taking a young and inexperienced squad to Brazil. After losing three finals in three years from 2014 to 2016, this side also has plenty of demons it needs to exorcise. To have any chance, Argentina will need Messi firing on all cylinders and the rest of the team stepping up to support him.
Uruguay are always a danger and the tiny nation of 3.5 million people have won more Copa Americas than anyone else, with 15 wins under their belt. La Celeste will be hard to beat, as always, with a defence marshalled by captain Diego Godín, a young, exciting midfield, and some stardust upfront in Luis Suárez and Edinson Cavani.
Of the other teams, reigning champions Chile will be keen to bounce back after missing last year's World Cup, though the club form of Alexis Sánchez over the last 18 months will be of concern for La Roja.
Colombia will need James Rodríguez to recapture some of his form from the 2014 World Cup when he won the Golden Boot for his six goals in five matches and was arguably the tournament's best player. Los Cafeteros have a squad capable of challenging for the trophy and have unfinished business in Brazil after a controversial exit in 2014.
Peru surprised many by qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in dramatic style and Los Incas will be keen to build on that experience. Peru hadn't qualified for the World Cup since 1982 before last year and boast a talented generation of players.
Paraguay are in a tough group alongside Argentina, Colombia and Qatar, but won't be easybeats. The nature of the tournament means that the two best third placed teams will advance to the quarter-finals and it would be a surprise if Paraguay couldn't manage at least third place in Group B. Evergreen striker Roque Santa Cruz was forced to withdraw from the squad from injury and Los Guaraníes will miss his experience.
Venezuela's young squad can draw on the experience of the 2017 U-20 FIFA World Cup. A number of members from that team are now fully fledged internationals and will be in action in this tournament.
Ecuador had a disappointing end to the 2018 World Cup qualification, losing the last six matches after looking certain to qualify. Grouped with Uruguay, Japan and Chile, La Tricolor will be up against it.
Away from the altitude of La Paz, Bolivia have always struggled, and this tournament will be no exception. Being grouped with Brazil, Venezuela and Peru won't be easy and if La Verde can make it out of the group it would be an achievement.
The inclusion of Japan and Qatar is curious, but common in the Copa America as there are only 10 teams in CONMEBOL. Neither side is expected to progress far into the tournament but both will do well to use the experience as a learning curve.
This is Japan's second appearance, though in recent additions, teams from CONCACAF such as Mexico, the USA and Costa Rica have been invited instead. Of interest to Australian fans are reports that the Socceroos have been invited to the 2020 edition of the tournament.
