It’s time for the second Copa America semifinal! After Brazil booked their ticket to the Final with a tough win over Peru on Monday night, it’s time for Argentina and Colombia to battle for the second spot in the title game in Brasília.

Argentina are through thanks to a 3-0 win over Ecuador and a masterful performance from Lionel Messi, while Colombia beat Uruguay on penalties in the quarterfinals. These teams met a month ago in World Cup Qualifying action, with a thrilling 2-2 draw in which Colombia came back from a two-goal deficit.

Messi starts and captains the Albiceleste, while former Barça defender Yerry Mina is in the Colombian team. This will be good. Vamos!
