Brazil and Argentina face off in the Copa America Semifinals. Most analysts expected these two teams to meet in the Final but Argentina’s poor performances in the Group Stage ended up deciding that this classic match was not meant to happen in the game for the title.
Casemiro will return to the team after missing the previous match against Paraguay with a suspension. The midfielder will have a clear mission: stopping Leo Messi. Barcelona’s attacker is the obvious leader of this Argentina team and in fact the rest of the team isn’t that special, so the outcome of the Casemiro-Messi matchup could very well decide the winner of the game.
Brazil are most likely the better team and the favorite to win and they are the home side as well, given that this edition of the Copa America is played in Brazil. However, Argentina have the best player of the 22 who will step on the pitch, so Tite’s men will need to be very careful.
