5. The top goal scorer in a tournament edition. The Brazilian Jair, in the South American Championship of National Teams of 1949, and the Argentinean Humberto Maschio with the Uruguayan Javier Ambrois, in Peru in 1957, are the biggest goal scorers in the same edition of the tournament by scoring each one 9 goals. In Brazil, who do you think will be able to overcome that mark?

4. The historic goal scorer of the Cup. The Argentine Norberto Méndez, together with the Brazilian Zizinho, both with 17 goals, are the maximum historical goal scorer of the CONMEBOL Copa América. Active players who have the ability to more closely match or exceed that record are the Peruvian Paolo Guerrero, with so many 11, and the Chilean Eduardo Vargas, with 10.

3. Brazil, for a record that only have three teams. There is a record that only the National teams of Argentina in 1921, Uruguay in 1917 and 1987, and Colombia in 2001, when getting the title of the tournament playing in their country, winning all the matches and without goals. The Brazilian team, as host of the tournament, has the possibility of joining this selected group.

2. The highest average attendance at the stadiums. The Centennial edition of the tournament, which was held in the United States, achieved attendance at the stadiums of close to 1.5 million fans in 32 games and 10 host cities. With an average of 46.000 fans per game, this represented the highest attendance in the 100 years of the tournament. CONMEBOL Copa América Brazil 2019 is challenged to overcome this record with its six stadiums in the five host cities.

1. Chile looking for the Tricampeonato. The National Team of Chile, which managed to lift the CONMEBOL Copa América trophy in the two recent editions (Chile 2015 and USA 2016), could equal the record that only the Argentine team has of winning three titles consecutively. The Albiceleste achieved this mark by winning the championships of 1945, 1946 and 1947.

The figures vibrate, the statistics vibrate, the records vibrate and the Continent vibrates with the CONMEBOL Copa América Brazil 2019.
