Argentina’s positive semi final record in Copa America and World Cup’s


Argentina has a positive record when it comes to semi finals in senior tournaments.

When Argentina play against Brazil in the semi finals of the 2019 Copa America, their track record in that stage of the two largest tournaments is very much on their side. Argentina have played in 13 semi finals when it comes to both the Copa America and the FIFA World Cup and have won 12 of their 13 games.

The team’s only defeat in a semi final has to be traced back all the way to the 1987 Copa America when they lost 1-0 against Uruguay. The rest have all been victories or victories through a penalty shootout.
