It’s time for the Copa America quarterfinals! Eight nations are left in the South American Championships and this promises to be a great knockout stage.

There are three big ones in this round and the first match takes place in Rio de Janeiro as Brazil and Chile clash at the Engenhão. Only one Barcelona player is represented here with Emerson Royal on the Seleção bench, but two former Barça stars go head to head as Neymar and Arturo Vidal look to lead their teams to a place in the semifinal.

Brazil dominated the group stage while Chile struggled, but La Roja has enough talent and fighting spirit to pull off the upset. The winner faces Peru in the semifinal, so winning this one is a huge step towards the title. Here we go!
