The match was played on the occasion of the 50th. anniversary of Clarín, the largest newspapers of Argentina and the second most circulated in the Spanish-speaking world,[2][3] which was also the main sponsor for the match.

This was the 80th time that Argentina and Brazil faced each other,[4] and the first match between both teams after Brazil eliminated Argentina via penalty shoot-out at the 1995 Copa América, when forward Túlio scored a controversial goal (he used his hand to receive the pass before shooting) to tie the game on 81'. That goal forced the penalties to qualify a team to semifinals.[5][6]

They (the Argentines) can't claim anything because they did not claim when the hand of God happened in 1986. Mine was the hand of Virgin Mary, whom I love more than God.[6]

— Túlio in an interview in 2019

A second match would be played by both teams in 1997.[7]
