A hat-trick from Neymar helped Brazil to a 4-2 win over Peru in a 2022 World Cup qualifier in Lima on Tuesday and moved the Paris St Germain forward to second behind Pele on his country's all-time goal-scoring list.
Peru's Andre Carrillo got his third goal in two games to put the home side ahead after six minutes with a crisp volley from outside the box, but Neymar equalised from the spot in the 28th minute after he was fouled.
Peru, who have never beaten Brazil in a World Cup qualifier, went ahead again after 59 minutes when Renato Tapia's 25-metre shot hit Rodrigo Caio before rolling into the net, only for Richarlison to equalise five minutes later.
Neymar put Brazil ahead with another penalty with seven minutes left and, after Peru's Carlos Zambrano was sent off, scored his 64th international goal when he stabbed home in injury time to make it 4-2.
Only Pele, with 77 goals, has scored more goals for Brazil than Neymar.
Brazil top the South American qualifying group with six points from two games.
Earlier, a late goal from Joaquin Correa helped Argentina come from behind to beat Bolivia 2-1 and maintain their 100 per cent record in qualifying.
Bolivia took the lead after 24 minutes when captain Marcelo Martins rose unmarked to head home a cross from the left.
However, Argentina, who beat visitors Ecuador 1-0 in their opener last week, equalised seconds before halftime when a clearance from defender Jose Maria Carrasco hit Lautaro Martinez just yards from goal and flew into the net.
Correa then got Argentina's winner with a sweet left-foot strike 11 minutes from the final whistle as Bolivia suffered another defeat following their 5-0 thrashing away to Brazil last week.
The result was Argentina's ninth game unbeaten under coach Lionel Scaloni and their first win in Bolivia since 2005.
It came in spite of their evident troubles with the thin air, with the game being played at high altitude in La Paz.
Martinez could have had a hat-trick but scooped one chance over the bar and had another well saved by the Bolivian keeper.
Lionel Messi was another outstanding performer for the visitors, although the Barcelona forward played a deeper role than usual and was more of a creator than taker of chances.
Ecuador beat Uruguay 4-2 with goals from Moises Caicedo, Michael Estyrada (2) and Gonzalo Plata.
Luis Suarez scored both of Uruguay's goals from the penalty spot.
The top four sides in the 10-team South American group qualify directly for Qatar 2022 and the fifth-placed side goes into an inter-regional playoff.
