Argentina and Brazil will go head to head on Tuesday in mega clash in 2019 Copa America semi’s, the winner advances to the final to play either Chile or Peru. Both teams will be looking for a win here.

Kick-off : 9:30 PM (Local)

Venue : Estadio Governador Magalhães Pinto, Belo Horizonte

Argentina haven’t had an ideal campaign so far in Copa America 2019 and they would wanna change that soon by knocking Brazil out and potentially winning the tournament. But they will need to play their brand of soccer.

La Albiceleste know it is the game of the tournament in which their rivals as hosts will look to dominate them. So Argentina will look to be equally on the task and be competitive and bring their A game into play to overcome their neighbours.

Defensively they had a bad game against Colombia while against Venezuela in the quarter-finals they were more respectable and solid which is what the standard they will be after.

They need to show defensive solidity against The Selecao while Messi will take care of the attack with other fantastic players. They need to have a perfect game.

On the other hand, Brazil the tournament hosts have had a fine campaign so far and went undefeated in the group stages. 

Here against Argentina they will have to be at their best and play with flair to knock Argentina out who have been rather lacklustre.

The Selecao are a good unit and possession could be expected to be with them against their arch rivals. Brazil will be hoping they have good game defensively and in the final third.

Team news and possible line-ups

Richarlison is available for Brazil for the Argentina game and might play. While Filipe Luis is doubtful.

As for La Albiceleste, Giovani Lo Celso is available and might get a place in the starting XI.

Brazil XI : Alisson, Alves, Marquinhos, Silva, Sandro, Arthur, Casemiro, Jesus, Coutinho, Everton, Firmino.

Argentina XI : Armani, Foyth, Pezzella, Otamendi, Tagliafico, De Paul, Paredes, Lo Celso, Messi, Agüero, Martinez.

Prediction

I think the team who will be better on the night in all the departments will win the game. But if one team to choose than five time world champions and hosts Brazil.
