Brazil face off against Peru while Argentina lock horns with Colombia in the semi-finals of Copa America 2021, starting from Tuesday, July 6.
Both Brazil and Argentina are unbeaten in the competition so far, making them the favourites to compete in the final. After topping their respective groups, the teams did well enough to book a place in the semi-final.
While Argentina had a rather easy route, beating Ecuador 3-0 in the quarter-finals, Brazil had to face a stern challenge from Chile. Lucas Paqueta’s 46th-minute goal made the difference as a 10-man Brazil held Chile in fine fashion.
Brazil’s opponents, Peru, finished second in their group and had to rely on a penalty shoot-out against Paraguay to make it to the last four.
Colombia, on the other hand, had a similar fate. While they finished third in the group stage, they took their quarter-final game against Uruguay right until the penalties. Goalkeeper David Ospina made the difference as Colombia beat their opponent 4-2 on penalties.
