Argentina defeated Colombia after neither team scored in regulation, while Paraguay upset Brazil in their matchup after tying 1-1 at the end of regulation. Of note for the favorites today, both Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano have yellow cards. They’ll need to pay closer attention to their play so they won’t cost their team a trip to the finals, or possibly be on the sideline for it.
Paraguay will be without their midfielder Nestor Ortigoza due to injury. They’re also evaluating the status of defender Miguel Samudio to determine when he can participate for the side. In today’s matchup, Paraguay already knows they will be big underdogs but aren’t backing down from their opponents. Nelson Haedo Valdez told the media that “However, we came here to battle every rival, as we usually do. We have to give our best, with effort, with passion. We want to achieve more.”
