Brazil will be playing a team they already met in the groups, Paraguay. The ‘canarinha’, coached by Mano Menezes, qualified with a 4-2 win over Ecuador last night and finished top of their group, thus avoiding a clash with Chile. Dani Alves and Adriano Correia will therefore be heading for La Plata, where they play on Sunday at 21.00 CET against a tough opponent.

After that, late Sunday night, early Monday morning at 00.15 CET, Chile and Venezuela will be battling for the last semi final berth.

The semi finals

Argentina and Brazil cannot face each other until the final, if they get there. If Messi, Mascherano and Milito’s team beat Uruguay their semi final opponent will be Peru or Colombia.

As for Dani Alves and Adriano Correia’s Brazil, if they get past Paraguay, next upm will be the winner of the quarter final between Chile and Venezuela.
