Brazil continued to exert their tournament dominance by making it to the Copa America Final without any major hiccups along the way.
Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar turned up for Brazil’s semi-final fixture against Peru, ready to show the world exactly what he is capable of. The Brazilian talisman played an instrumental role in creating many of his teams best chances throughout the 90-minutes, also assisting teammate Lucas Paqueta brilliantly.
Unphased by the threat Peru posed on the day, the Seleção easily held firm to see a famous 1-0 Copa America Semi-final victory, with the final against Argentina now scheduled for this Sunday at the Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro.
Despite them measuring up as the favourites this weekend, Brazil will still have a lot to do on the day. Argentinian talisman Lionel Messi will undoubtedly make the lives of Brazilan defenders difficult. However, with their status as a host and their talent on the field, Brazil will fancy themselves capable of lifting the trophy and securing their 10th Copa America championship.
If you fancy a low-scoring game, we’ve got under three goals on the market at 1/4 (1.25).
Form: D – W – W – W – W – D(W)
Argentina are set to meet Brazil in the Copa America Final this Sunday for the first time in 14 years.
While their journey to the final wasn’t the most straightforward affair, there can be no doubt that La Albiceleste deserve their place at the Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro this weekend.
Although a tough matchup against Colombia in the semi-finals was always going to make fans sweat, not many would have predicted it to go down to a nerve-racking penalty shootout with everything on the line. Dubbed by Lionel Messi as a ‘phenomenon’, Aston Villa’s keeper Emi Martinez engraved his name into legend by keeping out three penalties which ensured his side’s progression into the final round.
Argentina’s recent history comes with plenty of heartbreak, something this generation of talent will be trying to avoid. The football-obsessed nation is in the process of enduring a trophy drought that dates back to 1993. And, while many will see this period as a waste of Messi’s talents, the current free-agent footballing megastar can still flip the script on its head with what will be most likely one of his last chances to secure national silverware for his country.
If you think these team are ready make a go of it and give us a final to remember, we’ve got over four goals available at 17/2 (9.50).
