Argentina, Brazil clash for title
The iconic Estadio do Maracana in Rio de Janeiro will pitch arch-rivals Brazil and Argentina against each other for the Copa America 2021 title on Sunday. The marquee match will kick off at 6:00 am Bangladesh time and will be telecast live on SONY SIX, TEN 1 & TEN 2 channels.
The Brazilians have set their sights on a sixth continental crown in ten Copa America editions, hoping to become the first nation to host and win back-to-back tournaments.
The Argentineans, on the other hand, are desperate to bring an exhausting 28-year title drought, with Lionel Messi aiming to lift his first trophy with the national team.
Brazil boast a resounding Copa America record against fierce rivals when playing at home, having won five of their six such encounters without ever losing.
However, an overall head-to-head Copa America record favours the Argentineans, who have prevailed in 15 of their 33 such showdowns.
All eyes will be fixed on this fixture to see who prevails – Messi or his former Barcelona teammate Neymar.
