It is currently one of the most anticipated fixtures in world football as both countries parade some of the finest footballers on the planet.

Though they had to rely on penalties to see out Paraguay in the quarter-finals, it has been a decent tournament for host country Brazil who are surprisingly reaching this stage the Copa America for the first time since 2007.

Argentina, on the other hand, have had what could be termed an underwhelming Copa América. They won one, drew one and lost one in their group – hardly inspiring considering they were one of the favourites going in. They did, however, earn a solid win against Venezuela in the quarter-finals on Sunday, courtesy of goals from Lautaro Martínez and Giovani Lo Celso.

Team News

Brazil’s Filipe Luís, who was replaced at half-time in the Paraguay meeting, missed training on Saturday to undergo physiotherapy and is doubtful for Wednesday’s game.

Richarlison, who missed the Paraguay game, is set to return to training after contracting mumps but is unlikely to start against Argentina. Fernandinho, who suffered an injury to his right knee while playing Venezuela, is also doubtful as he continues treatment.

Argentina have no reports of any injuries and could field a full-strength squad.
