They are undefeated, with perfect scores and have the best forwards. Everything is served for Brazil and Argentina to gallop in the final home run of the U23 South American Pre-Olympic Games that begins today in the Colombian city of Bucaramanga.
The greatest soccer rivals of South America arrive as absolute favorites to stay with the two tickets to Tokyo-2020 against the irregular Colombia and Uruguay, thirsty to surprise them in their Olympic aspiration.
The four teams will battle each other in hot Bucaramanga (northeast), half a thousand kilometers from Pereira and Armenia, where the group stage was played. The first two will get passes to Tokyo-2020.
André Jardine's Brazil is burdened with the pressure of defending the gold obtained four years ago in Rio de Janeiro, the only soccer title absent from their showcases until then.
Master and lord of Group B, in which he left behind Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay, the Brazilians unleashed an offensive of fear. Today they will face Colombia. So far in four outings they have scored eleven goals, which makes them the best offense in the tournament.
Without an Olympic title since Beijing-2008, under the aura of Lionel Messi, Argentina's strong card is its balance: four wins, the second best offense with nine goals. Today they will collide with Uruguay.
