Argentina had won the Copa America 14 times. However, the last time they won the title was back in 1993 in a final clash with Mexico.

In the quarter-finals, Argentina dominated with a comfortable 3:0 win over Ecuador.

This could be Messi’s last Copa America. After a poor start to the tournament, they have overturned the doubts about them with their ability.

Brazil have proved that they are a superior team with great matches. They have been in good form throughout the tournament. Brazil have been doing well defensively, conceding a tight 2 goals in their last 10 games.Argentina have been inconsistent in terms of scoring goals and it is expected that they will struggle to find scoring opportunities against Brazil.
