Brazil defeated Argentina's national football team after a penalty definition, and was crowned once again in the Americas Superclassic Cup.

Brazil won the "Superclásico de las Américas" trophy on penalties after 3-3 aggregate score in friendly double-header.

Ignacio Scocco opened the score after a penalty kick at 36' of the second half, but Fred rapidly draw two minutes later.

By the end of the match, Scocco netted once more, giving Argentina the chance to fight for the trophy at the penalties.

Nevertheless, Argentina missed twice at penalties' definition as Brazil's Cavalieri could manage with Martínez, and Montillo failed to score. 

Argentina's Orión also could handle a weak kick of Carlinhos, but was not able to stop Neymar's kick, who gave the final victory to Brazil.

The second leg was to be held on October 3 at the Sarmiento Stadium in Chaco, but had to suspended due to power issues.
