Everything is smart so that Brazil recibá in the Maracaná to Argentina, in the final of the Glass America, this Sunday by the morning (2:00 h, in Spain), in a party in which they will go out sparks. In addition to being a 'Classical' of the football sudamericano by the historical rivalry between both selections, supposes the reunion between Leo Messi and Neymar Jr, in addition to the big personal challenge that has the forward and Argentinian captain.

After losing his last four finals with the 'albiceleste': the Glass America of 2007, 2015 and 2016 and the World-wide of 2014, Messi goes back to have the opportunity to win his first big title with his country, after the World-wide Sub-20 of 2005 and the olympic gold of Peking 2008. 'The Flea' has more than clear that it is now or never and goes to go to by all, dressing again like the big leader for his.

The true is that Argentina and Leo Messi, especially, have a lot of credit to carry the title. They have not conceded a defeat and the 'capi' has taken part in nine goals: four annotated by him and other five assistances, figures that have turned him into the player with more influence of face to the goal of the present edition of the Glass America. This promotes it, even more, to litigate by the so longed for trophy.

The fact that Argentina does not win the continental title from 28 years ago (in 1993) and that in 2004 and 2007 fell in front of Brazil, in the final, adds an extra condiment to the crash between the two more important selections of Sudamérica. To this, it is necessary to add him the controversial elimination of the 'albiceleste' in the semifinals of the edition of 2019, with an arbitration that left a lot that wish.

In fact, in this opportunity, Leo Messi heaved the voice and criticised duramente to the Glass America, his direction and the referee's body, aiming that: "Lamentably I think that (the Glass America) is armed for Brazil. Ojalá That the VAR and the referees do not have at all that see in this final and that Peru can compete, because has team to do it, but see it difficult".

Brazil no will put it to him facil to Leo

Although Argentina has signed a big Glass America, Brazil also adds merits to remain , again, with the title home. The ones of Tite add, in total, 13 parties without losing, with twelve victories and a tie (in front of Ecuador, in phase of groups). In this edition of the tournament accumulate 12 so many in favour and two against. Neymar, on the other hand, wants to add a new title and will go to by all, in spite of his reunion with his ex mate and big fellow.
