Argentina earned their spot in the final of the Copa America final in dramatic fashion with a stunning display from the Aston Villa goalkeeper, Emi Martinez. Lautaro Martinez provided Lionel Scaloni’s side with an early lead against Colombia but a second-half equaliser so the game eventually went to penalties where Villa’s Martines shone to seal their spot in the final.
Brazil have been the standout side in this summer’s tournament so far. Tite’s men sailed through the group stage and went their four games unbeaten with three wins and one draw to their name. Since progressing to the knockout stages, the tournament hosts are yet to concede a goal after two 1-0 victories against Chile and Peru.
These two international rivals will have their eyes on the prize but the eyes of the world will be on the battle between Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr with the two footballing geniuses looking to guide their teams to glory on Sunday. Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus will not be eligible to play in the final following his red card awarded against Chile which earned the striker a two-game suspension.

Argentina vs Brazil: Match Stats
Brazil have looked mighty in this competition so far. Total dominance in the group stages made them the team to beat, however, since progressing their back-to-back clean sheets have been just as impressive. In their six games so far in this summer’s tournament, Tite’s side has kept clean sheets on four occasions.
The host nation’s last three games have proven to be tight affairs in which Brazil have prevailed in the end. All three of their last games have ended with under 2.5 goals and two of those ended with under 1.5 goals. Equally, four of Argentina’s six Copa America games to date have ended with under 2.5 goals.
