What is Argentina and Colombia's Copa América record?
Argentina is the second-most successful nation in this competition if titles won during the South American Championship, as the Copa America was known prior to 1975. However, La Albiceleste has lifted the title only twice since the name change, with their most recent success coming back in 1993. They have lost back-to-back finals and have finished as runners-up in four of the last five tournaments.
As for Colombia, their one and only Copa America triumph came in 2001. Los Cafeteros finished in third in the most recent Copa America and crashed out in the quarter-finals in the two tournaments that preceded USA 2016.
What is the form of Argentina compared to Colombia?
Since crashing out of the 2018 World Cup at the hands of eventual champion France, Argentina has gone on to lose only two games. Their first defeat was the 1-0 loss to Brazil while the second was the 3-1 humbling on Messi's return. That means Lionel Scaloni's men have won six of their nine games since their humiliation at Russia 2018.
As for their opponent, they have suffered only one defeat since being eliminated from the World Cup on penalties by England. That sole loss came against South Korea, meaning they have won six out of eight since the heartbreak against the Three Lions.

Who's injured/suspended for Argentina vs Colombia?
There are no fresh injuries or suspensions, meaning Scaloni and Queiroz will have a full squad to choose from. For the Albiceleste boss, it is a question of who to partner with Messi in attack and midfield. Lautaro Martinez will be vying for a start ahead of Aguero after scoring a brace against Nicaragua while there are question marks as to whether Di Maria will be an undisputed starter or not.
Colombia, meanwhile, will have to decide between starting legendary striker Radamel Falcao or opting for form by starting Duvan Zapata. Falcao is the captain and will thus likely beat out his countryman.
