The 2019 Copa America quarterfinals are underway and the second matchup in the Last Eight will decide who faces Brazil in next Tuesday’s semifinal as Venezuela and Argentina face off at the Maracanã.

15 years ago this wouldn’t even be a contest. Argentina have always been light years ahead of the Vinotinto, but with Venezuela’s quiet but impressive rise and Argentina’s instituional collapse this is a much closer contest than we ever thought it could be.

Friday’s is an impossible match to predict. Venezuela haven’t lost to Argentina in four years and dominated them in a friendly back in March when both sides were at full strength. But the Albiceleste have Lionel Messi and showed small signs of improvement in their final group stage match, so they come into this one with a more settled team and a little bit of confidence.

Venzuela have better, more stable coaching but Argentina have the talent, and that’s why we have no idea who is going to win and why this is a must-watch game if you’re a Barcelona fan.
