Brazil and Argentina will play the final of the 2019 South American Men’s Volleyball Championship, held in Chile, the so-called “Clásico”.



The fiercest continental rivals Brazil and Argentina defeated Venezuela and Chile, respectively, in the semifinals that took place in front of packed stands at Gimnasio Polideportivo of the Estadio Nacional in the capital of Chile, Santiago, and will play a decider for the South American title for the sixth time in the history of the tournament. It will be a repeat of their encounter in the pool stage in which “Seleção” prevailed.

Brazil (No.1 in Pool A with 3-0 and 9 points) beat the hosts Chile (No.2 in Pool B with 2-1 and 6 points) by a 3-0 (25-16, 25-17, 25-21). The best scorer of the match was Brazil’s opposite hitter Alan Souza with 14 points.

In the other semifinal duel, Argentina (No.2 in Pool A with 2-1 and 6 points) recorded a comfortable win over Venezuela (No.1 in Pool B with 2-1 and 7 points) of a 3-0, partially 25-13, 25-16 and 25-13. There were no double-digit players in the match. Argentina’s outside hitter Jan Martínez top-scored for the winning side with 9 points.

Looking at the results of Day 4, Chile, Venezuela, Peru and Colombia assured participation in the continental Olympic Qualifier in January that grants one quota from South America for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. Brazil and Argentina earned a promotion to the Olympics via FIVB International Qualifier, earlier.

The 26-time consecutive winners Brazil (31 titles in 32 tournaments so far!) will play for gold in the South American Championship for the ninth time (played all finals), while Argentina will play the final for the sixth time.
