Neymar Jr. is again set to feature for Brazil as they take on Peru in a friendly in the United States on Tuesday evening.

The world's most expensive player has not yet featured for Paris Saint-Germain this season due to the doubts that surrounded his future at the Parc des Princes before the transfer window closed on September 2.

However, after also missing Brazil's Copa América triumph on home soil in July due to injury, Neymar started in a 2-2 draw with Colombia in Miami last Friday, scoring one goal after setting up his side's opener.

Coach Tite is now tipped to start the 27-year-old again in the Copa América final rematch against the Peruvians, which will be played in Los Angeles, kicking off at 0300 GMT on Wednesday.

After that match, Neymar will return to Paris but it remains to be seen if he will feature in Saturday's Ligue 1 Conforama meeting with RC Strasbourg Alsace at the Parc des Princes. He is suspended for the start of their UEFA Champions League campaign against Real Madrid next midweek.
