This Thursday, Argentina drew 3-3 against Paraguay in the closing duel of Group B of the Copa América de Futsal that takes place in Asunción. La Albiceleste needed to win to stay as the leader of the area, but with equality they had to settle for second place that leaves them in the semifinals.
It was a tough match for the world runner-up who lost 2-0 in the first half, but Matías Edelstein got the discount. The local team was up 3-1 and in the complement it was Edelstein, again, and Sebastián Corso who sentenced the 3-3 that at least allowed the team to remain undefeated.
Their rival in the semifinals will surely be Brazil, who must first play against Uruguay. Only a win against would leave the Verdeamarela second in their area, something that seems unthinkable at least in the previous one, so in the next instance the classic would be reissued.
Argentina had sealed their ticket to the next stage on Wednesday, when they got their third win 3-1 to Venezuela, with goals from Constantino Vaporaki, Paul Taborda Y Matías Edelstein. Those led by matias lucuix, who had already defeated Bolivia and Peru, are already preparing for Saturday’s semifinal.
In the other group, Brazil, current champion of the Copa América, has just beaten Colombia 3-0. With 9 points, the canarinha knows that even losing by a few goals against Uruguay, positioned in second place with 6 units, will be the leader in his zone. The only chances that the Scratch does not stay with the leadership is that it loses in a historical way by three points of difference against the Celeste.
