Rio de Janeiro Five-time world champion Brazil and star Neymar are the first team to reach the Copa America final. There may be a clash with Lionel Messi and Argentina.
Coach Tite’s team won the semi-final against Peru after a strong first half 1-0 (1-0), and as in 2019, they reached the title. For Selecao, this will be his 10th victory in the South American Championship.
In the new version of the final two years ago, Neymar scored the winning goal, as happened in the quarter-final 1-0 against Chile’s Lucas Paqueta (35) of Olympique Lyonnais. In the second semi-final, Argentina will battle with superstar Lionel Messi and Colombia on Wednesday night (3:00 am) for a place in the final.
Neymar said with a mischievous smile after the match: “I want Argentina, friends play there. But Brazil will win in the end.” Among the Argentines are Leandro Paredes and Angel Di Maria, who play together at the 29-year-old Paris Saint-Germain.
At Nilton Santos Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, not far from the mysterious Maracanas, where Saturday’s ‘Gran Final’ will take place, Brazil ultimately had more work to do after a torrent of opportunities in the first round than they did in the fourth. . 0 group stage. However, Neymar’s team refined Tite’s record in his second Copa America to nine wins and three draws. This means that the coach is undefeated in official matches against South America.
Thus, Brazil reached the final for the ninth time in the last 14 editions, with a total of six victories. “Now it’s my mind, it’s the heart now, now it’s the final,” Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro said. “You don’t play a final, you win it.”
