Lionel Messi and Los Albiceleste navigated their way to the final with minimal effort as they defeated Canada 2-0 in the semifinals and the defending champions are looking to win a major international tournament for the third year in a row. Messi hasn’t hit his stride yet, but Lautaro Martinez and Julian Alvarez are both Argentina’s top players when they have to support Messi in attack. The main reason Argentina has won so many titles in recent years is its solid defense.

Colombia was the attacking force of this tournament, but showed a different side of its game than They defeated Uruguay 1-0 in the semi-finals despite playing over half the game a man down as Crystal Palace’s Daniel Munoz was sent off. Los Cafeteros are unbeaten in 28 games and with James Rodriguez and Luis Diaz pulling the strings in attack, they are really strong and will make life very difficult for Argentina. It is only the third time in history that Colombia have reached the final of the Copa America.

Focus on Argentina, team news

Argentina have no injury or suspension concerns and will likely line up the same as they did against Canada. A tight formation has allowed Alexis Mac Allister and Angel Di Maria to get the ball often and Alvarez will be preferred up front over Lautaro Martinez. Lionel Scaloni’s defence is well-rehearsed with Emiliano Martinez in goal and Cristian Romero and Lisandro Martinez ahead of him in central defence.

Focus on Colombia, team news

Munoz is suspended for the final, so Colombia will make one change at right back, with Santiago Arias likely coming in. James and Diaz behind Jhon Cordoba have worked so well together in attack for Colombia, and they are such an aggressive team when they win the ball back, and James has the quality to hurt any opponent. They have scored 12 goals at the 2024 Copa America, the most of any team and four more than Argentina.
