The 2024 Concacaf W Gold Cup enters its most exciting stage, with the knockout phase bracket already set. The quarterfinals will bring us a South American derby between Brazil and Argentina, with the rivals set to face each other on Sunday (3) at 12:15 AM (Brasilia time) at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.

The Brazilian Women’s National Team heads into this clash as strong favorite, being the second-best ranked team in the group stage. Arthur Elias’ side finished atop Group B with a perfect score and a clean sheet in all three games. While the Verdeamarela defeated Puerto Rico and Colombia by just 1-0, they secured a convincing 5-0 victory against Panama to conclude the first stage in the best possible way.

On the other hand, Argentina had to sweat to make it to this stage. Germán Portanova’s side started the tournament on the wrong foot with a goalless draw against Mexico before a 4-0 loss to the United States, but a big 3-0 win over the Dominican Republic on the final matchday was enough for them to advance as the best third-placed team.
