During the recent football match between Colombia and Brazil, Luis Díaz and Vinícius Júnior faced each other again in what was a direct competition of skills on the field.

This match, which ended in a 1-1 draw, left different impressions between the teams. While Colombia managed to stay at the top of Group D of the Copa América, extending its unbeaten streak to 26 games and being one away from tying its all-time high, Brazil had a less favorable result, accumulating its second consecutive draw and remaining in second place in the group.

In this context, Liverpool’s Luis Díaz outperformed Real Madrid’s Vinícius Júnior in several aspects of the game. Díaz was more active both offensively and defensively, and demonstrated greater effectiveness in his passes and crosses into the box.

Overall, Díaz attempted more passes (22 to Vinícius’ 11) and had a higher success rate with them (95% to 82%). He was also more effective with his crosses, achieving 100% accuracy against no effective crosses from Vinícius.

On the other hand, Vinícius did not take a shot on goal during the 90 minutes of play, while Díaz managed to take one. Although Vinícius had a better percentage of successful dribbles (60% compared to Díaz’s 33%), the Colombian stood out more in recovering balls and in defensive actions, with 13 successful defensive pressures against Vinícius’ 5 and recovering more balls in the opponent’s half.

In addition, Vinícius received a yellow card for a foul committed on James Rodríguez, which will prevent him from participating in the upcoming quarter-final match against Uruguay due to an accumulation of cards.

At the end of the match, while Vinícius left the field visibly affected without making any statements,

Diaz took a moment to speak in the mixed zone, dedicating the qualification to the quarterfinals to the fans who have been supporting the team in the United States and emphasizing the importance of keeping their feet on the ground and continuing to advance in the tournament.

This was not the first meeting between the two players; they had already met in November 2023 during the South American qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup.

On that occasion, although both started as starters, Vinícius had to leave the field after 27 minutes due to physical problems. Colombia ended up winning that match with a memorable comeback led by two goals from Luis Díaz in the second half.
