Brazil vs Argentina (America's Cup semi-final 2019)
source This South American duel will be on Tuesday, July 2nd at 21.30, at the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte and will be televised by Public TV, TyC Sports, America TV and DirecTV. Undoubtedly this is the most repeated duel in the history of the American Cup, as they have faced 32 times, of which Argentina has won 15 times and Brazil 9 times and 8 games tied. Brazil will have a tough challenge in search of the 2019 America's Cup to face Argentina for the semifinals of the tournament. Besides, as a local team Brazil has never lost in matches that have not been friendly, since in Brazil they have won 8 and tied 2 and in all local competitions. On the last four occasions that have faced in the Copa America Brazil has eliminated Argentina, in 1995 in the quarterfinals and in 2004 in the final of the Copa America in Peru, Adriano tied the decisive match in the last play (2-2) and led everything to the definition by penalties, to then become champion Brazil and in the 2007 final Julio Baptista, Ayala against and Dani Alves sentenced the 3-0 final: another title for Brazil . Argentina's national team began with setbacks, losing 2-0 to Colombia, tangled 1-1 with Paraguay, resurrected 2-0 against Catar and then beat Venezuela in the quarterfinals by the same score, qualifying for the semifinals. The Brazil team has gone from strength to strength with an attacking trident that ran over Peru 5-0 but has a hard time violating closed defenses. So much so that the clash with Paraguay in the quarterfinals ended in penalties, which won 4-3. SOURCE I think Messi is doing things well, although he's not doing the goals, which is what he's normally used to doing, but I think he's doing an excellent job. No matter how much you study a good strategy to neutralize Messi, he is always going to surprise with some play that nobody expects, as happened with Boateng who waited for the left and Messi hooked for the right. Leo Messi has faced Brazil nine times and the record is very negative for the number 10 of Argentina. However, within those nine games should be highlighted the excellent performance in 2012 when Messi scored three goals in victory 4-3. e nine games played, Messi won three, tied one and lost five against the Brazilian set. Argentina's technical director Liones Scaloni is evaluating the possibility of repeating against Brazil the same starting team that lined up in the quarter-final triumph against Venezuela. If Argentina plays against Brazil with the same line-up that it won against Venezuela, this means the granting of more fertile spaces for Brazil's attack, but also a greater degree of concern for Brazil's defense, due to the importance of the names that would make up the Argentine attack: Lautaro Martinez, Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi. My prediction Brazil will be the winner 3-1 And what do you think of this wonderful South American duel? Will it be an early final? Will they be extended? Or will they decide on penalties?
