Certainly, it was the two teams where one deposited his faith to reach final stages. But work and sacrifice demonstrated to be important in football to get short-term results. Both teams have new technicians, and despite having come up with a new philosophy, were able to change the mentality of his players to get a flashy game.

It will be a duel of Argentine technicians. On one side: Ricardo Gareca you printed the Inca selected an offensive game, based on good-true touch to Peruvian-style, but without neglecting the rear, where the order sought strategist and tactical discipline. On the other hand: Ramon Diaz claimed the identity of the Guarani player. It reaffirmed the ‘albirroja’ claw and gave greater show in midfield, especially with Derlis Gonzalez, a player who has surprised in this contest.

Unfortunately, for this match for third place, the young Paraguayan player may not be in the game due to a muscle tear, the same injury that also leave out striker Roque Santa Cruz, after the unfortunate match against Argentina, goleados which fell 6 points to 1.
For its part, Peru will be without Claudio Pizarro ruled out of this match due to physical problems, while Jefferson Farfan will be waited until the last moment by the coaching staff. The Peruvian striker has not trained in the last two days by discomfort in his foot.

This good match also bring another direct confrontation. Paolo Guerrero and Lucas Barrios, are one of two strikers in this South American fair, and this Friday will test his scoring in a match race for the honor. Both have 3 points and scoring reach the Chilean Eduardo Vargas has 4 targets.

But the opportunity is Inca gold ram. Guerrero will be able to make history in the Copa America in Chile. Vargas passing in the scoring reach the title for the second time, a fact that is not achieved since the Uruguayan Pedro Petrono achieved this feat in the editions of 1920 and 1923. In addition, Gabriel Omar Batistuta would emulate that managed to do in the events of 1991 and 1995.

It will be a great clash between two teams that in the edition of Argentina had achieved good results.Peru will seek reissue the third in four years ago and Paraguay will try to stay on the podium again.
