Brazil vs Argentina Live Stream (Copa America 2 July 2019)

Two of the biggest rivals in international football will lock horns once again this week as Brazil face off against Argentina in the Copa América semi-finals.

All things considered, it’s been decent tournament for the Seleção so far; in fact, it’s surprisingly the first time they’ve reached this stage of the Copa América since 2007. They probably would’ve preferred not to rely on penalties to see out Paraguay in the quarter-finals, but they did dominate the match and very much deserved the victory. 

Argentina, on the other hand, have had a relatively 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.

Saudi Arabia is the stage for a clash between two of South America’s biggest and best teams as the Selecao face the Albiceleste

Perennial South American rivals Brazil and Argentina lock horns on Tuesday when they face off at King Abdullah Sports City stadium in Saudi Arabia.

Both sides are on a tour of the Middle East, with Argentina beating Iraq 4-0 last Thursday and Brazil defeating Saudi Arabia 2-0 on Friday .

Sometimes described as the continent’s Clasico, meetings between the two teams tend to be highly competitive and, despite it being a friendly, bragging rights are always at stake.

Both Brazil and Argentina are gearing up for the 2019 Copa America, so the autumn friendly games offer an opportunity for coaches to experiment with personnel and fine-tune tactics.

Argentina are shorn of some of their most recognisable performers for the game, with Messi, Aguero and Di Maria among those not in the squad, but their absence has allowed space for the likes of Lautaro Martinez and Ricardo Pereyra to shine, not to mention the likes of Icardi and Paulo Dybala.

Brazil, on the other hand, boast a typically strong panel, with Tite including stars such as Neymar and Philippe Coutinho in his squad for the match. Nevertheless, the 57-year-old has included a number of new faces, with the likes of Richarlison, Arthur and Malcom being given a chance to impress.

Tite was not pleased with his side’s performance in their 2-0 win over Saudi Arabia last week and he will be demanding a much more passionate display against their bitter rivals.

“We were not convincing,” Tite told reporters of his side’s victory. “We won because we had creativity up front and that was it. Brazil versus Argentina is never a friendly. We hope to be better for that.”
