Two teams that have surpassed expectations in the 2015 Copa America, Peru and Paraguay, will be squaring off in the third place playoff game on July 3rd, 2015. The game will be taking place in the Estadio Municipal de Concepcion in Concepcion, Chile.

Peru found themselves in the third place playoff game after dropping a close contest to host nation Chile, 2-1, in the semi-finals. Peru was making it interesting until the 63rd minute, which is when Eduardo Vargas dropped the goal of the tournament on the shocked Peruvian defense. Peru couldn't respond and will now be looking to finish in third place in the tournament.

Paraguay, on the other hand, was throttled by Argentina in the semi-finals, losing 6-1. After struggling to score for the entirety of the tournament, the Argentinian offense finally unloaded, raining goal after goal down upon Paraguay's defenseless goalkeeper. Argentina, which had been struggling for the entire tournament, suddenly showed why they have been the team to beat from the beginning.
