Watch Argentina vs. Colombia live stream free in the 2015 Copa America quarterfinals from the Estadio Sausalito in Viña del Mar, Chile.
After a controversial match between Chile and Uruguay, which ended in the expulsion of forward Edinson Cavani and Chile advancing to the semis, things are set for the second quarterfinal. Argentina and Colombia are currently two of the Continent’s superpowers and will give it all to move on closer to a Copa America title.
Even though most eyes will be on superstars Lionel Messi for Argentina and James Rodriguez for Colombia, both teams are much more well rounded than those two stars. Messi has been heavily marked in Chile, as is usual in any competition, with only one goal for the 14-time Copa America champions.
Fans who watch Argentina vs. Colombia live stream free will see if Argentina can consolidate its position as one of the heavy favorites to take the title once again. However, Argentina failed to convince observers with narrow victories against a much weaker Jamaica.
For Colombia defender Jeison Murillo — who will have the honor of guarding Messi on Saturday — Argentina is dangerous in many other areas and Colombia must focus.
“It will be nice to be on the same pitch and go up against Lionel Messi, though it’s not only him but an excellent team that we face. I will always do my bit for the sake of this team.
“We are keeping calm. We have the same mentality as always, which is to win. We are facing a great team with great forwards and we must be on top.
“The idea is for the defence to give security to the forwards so they know they can look for goals at any point.”
If you watch Argentina vs. Colombia live stream free, you will also have the opportunity to see Barcelona striker Messi face-off against Real Madrid forward James. One is an established player, the other a rising star who left fans wanting more at the 2014 World Cup where he led Colombia to the quarterfinals.
Messi is looking to avenge the 2014 World Cup final loss against Germany and bring home the Copa America to Argentina’s fans, but first he and La Albiceleste must get past Colombia. If the latter advances, we could see a repeat of the Group’s stage encounter against Brazil, which Colombia won 1-0.
