Tournament: Copa America. ½ final.
The semifinal of the Copa America will be played between Brazil and Argentina.
Pentachampions have spent rather questionable tournament, the group was the weakest one and the victory over Peru with the score 5:0 really impresses but it became possible only thanks to the mistakes made by Peru but not to the strong pressure of the team of Tite.
Also, Brazil has got some problems in a match against Bolivia but it was the difference in gaming class that influenced the match outcome but with Venezuela the match has ended with a goalless draw as well as with Paraguay that having played short-handed didn’t let the Yellow and Greens to score and conceded only in penalty series.
Argentina has left absolutely unmistakable impression about their game – it was terrible. Despite the presence in the squad, the whole group of attacking players of the highest level, the game of Argentina in the attack was awful: loss to Columbia (0:2), draw with Paraguay (1:1) and squeezed out a win over Qatar (0:2).
After this, Venezuela has been won over with the same score in frames of the ¼ final but the second goal has been scored by the end of the match after the mistake made by the goalkeeper. Otherwise, the outcome could have been different.
It is obvious that both teams didn’t show their best football in this tournament but with that Brazil seemed to be more organized and hasn’t missed any goal on the Copa America though is suffering from inability to convert scoring moments.
Argentina is terrible in attack and it will be difficult for them to overcome such great defense with amazing Alisson Becker as a goalkeeper even with Lionel Messi in the starting line-up. With that, Argentina misses few goals.
In this situation we can assume that the goals won’t be scored at all and the winner will again be defined with the help of penalty shoot outs.
