Watch Argentina vs. Paraguay live stream free in a 2015 Copa America semifinal from the Estadio Municipal Alcaldesa Ester Roa Rebolledo in Concepción, Chile.
Argentina is the heavy favorite to win this semifinal clash. However, don’t expect Paraguay to just sit back. Los Guaranis are known for their never-give-up attitude and will battle to the bitter end, leaving everything on the field.
Argentina qualified by the skin of their teeth after a dramatic quarterfinal, where they prevailed 5-4 on a penalty-kicks victory against one of the other 2015 Copa America favorites, Colombia. Despite Argentina’s clear advantage in the match, Colombia hung tight and the match was forced to end in penalties.
Also, despite being favorites to win it all from the start, La Albiceleste has failed to impress observers, with narrow victories all throughout the 2015 Copa America in Chile. Now, they face another surprise semifinalist, Paraguay, who comes in after eliminating Brazil, likewise in an even more dramatic round of penalty kicks.
Watch Argentina vs. Paraguay live stream free to see if the two-time Copa America champion can upset the giant that Argentina is. They will find a rival that is eager to avenge the 2014 World Cup final’s disappointing loss, and a team that has not won an international competition in 22 years.
These two teams met in the Groups stage, a game which ended in a 2-2 draw. However, the stakes are high this time, and the winner will earn a ticket to the July 4 Copa America final.
Nobody knows this better than striker Raúl Bobadilla — who was incidentally born in Argentina — and looks forward to the challenge Paraguay will face against La Albiceleste. If you watch Argentina vs. Paraguay live stream free, you can see if Bobadilla is proven right.
“This team has a special attitude. Nobody gave us anything, but we are no less than anyone else.
We do not have the players that Brazil, Argentina or other national teams do.
We were facing each game with intelligence and with the guidance of the coaches, led by Ramón Díaz, we can work things out.”
Not surprisingly, Argentina holds the lead in the head-to-heads, with three wins in their last five matches against Paraguay. La Albirroja have won one and earned a draw at the 2015 Copa America. Messi will make sure his teammates are ready to give La Albiceleste another chance at the title against Chile.
