Copa America 2021 Predictions and Betting Tips

The Copa America begins soon, and it will be taking place in Brazil against Columbia and Argentina, as stated earlier, due to the intense political upheaval in Columbia. Also, Argentina is having a resurgence of the COVID 19 pandemic. Brazil hosting the competition was a last-minute choice not separate from its problems as internal player revolts might undermine the smooth sailing of the competition.

The competition will span 30 games played in 5 stadiums in 5 Brazilian cities:

  • Maracana stadium in Rio
  • Milton Santos in Rio
  • Estadio Nacunal Mané Garrincha en Brasilia
  • Arena Pantonal in Cuiaba
  • Estádio Olímpico in Goiânia

Twelve teams are participating in the competition, ten from South America and two guests, Australia and Qatar. The teams are divided into two groups of 5 teams each. The top 4 teams from each group then proceed to the knockout stages and then finals – Quarters, Semis and major finals. Also, the top four overall in the competition qualifies for the upcoming World Cup. Group A is Group South and consists of these teams:

  • Brazil,
  • Columbia,
  • Venezuela,
  • Peru, and
  • Ecuador

Group B is Group North and has these teams:

  • Argentina,
  • Bolivia,
  • Uruguay,
  • Chile, and
  • Paraguay

Group A First match(es) will be played on 13 June 2021. Source: CONMEBOL

Top Teams and Favourites of the Tournament

Some teams featuring in the COPA AMERICA that you might want to look out for:

Argentina:

Ideally, Brazil seems to have a greater likelihood of winning, but simply because of Lionel Messi, the game-changer would be having a last go at winning the competition. The stakes are somewhat raised, and we might see a more lethal Argentinian side this year. La albiceleste are favourites to win the competition, not necessarily by their performance in the qualifiers but due to heavy sentiments from Messi fans everywhere.

It gets even more urgent to win this one, considering Lionel Scalomi’s boys being four times runners-up in the competition. They haven’t tasted South American continental glory since 1993. Even with big names like Lionel Messi, Paulo Dybala, Angel Di Maria and Sergio Kun Aguero on their roster, they will be earnestly looking to break this seeming jinx over their national team once and for all.

Brazil:

The defending champions somehow happen to be second-favourites to win the COPA America. They also double as impromptu hosts of the prestigious competition, considering the political and health-related issues that arose and denied the original hosts, Columbia and Argentina, the opportunity to host the games this year. The Selecao is coming to this game, nostalgic of beating Peru in the finals in 2019 to clinch their 9th cup.

If entering the competition as immediate past winners were all the morale that Herman Crespo’s boys needed, then they would have more than enough, considering that they finished the qualifiers with the highest points, four above Argentina. Captain Dani Alves is back and fully loaded to lead his team to victory, just like in 2019.

On the roll call for Brazilians, we have Silva, Gabriel Jesus, who has enjoyed a fantastic spell at Manchester City, Neymar, and Roberto Firmino, with their decent share of contributions in top-flight European football all season long. The home advantage will be playing a major part in their favour, and if they can fully sort out the internal rifts in the team, they might be an unstoppable force.

Columbia:

If a contestant in the COPA America can be likened to a one-hit-wonder, it would be none other than Columbia. Having won the competition when they were hosts in 2001, they have been subsequently underwhelming. They somehow managed to qualify for the competition despite dropping a shambolic qualifying campaign that saw them let go of their coach.

The new manager, Reinaldo Russo, has an uphill battle on his hands in this tournament. He has Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez, who got them to the World Cup quarter-finals in 2014. Many punters and analysts have tipped them to come runners up in Group B, after Brazil.

Uruguay

They are the Real Madrid of the COPA America; having 15 COPA America cups in the show glass, they are easily the most successful team in the South American competition. Oscar Tabarez will be directing La Celeste into another competition, hoping to embody the spirit that has marked the 2011 champions’ continental dominance. Last season, 34-year-old Luis Suarez, rejected by the builders at Barcelona, was the cornerstone in an Atletico campaign where they won the La logs.

He will be bringing that euphoria to the team. Edinson Cavani has also made a mark for himself as one of the most potent dangermen in England. He will feature for the team, hoping that all things work in their favour. What to note about them is that just as they can put up a fantastic display, they may also be dismal.

Chile

The dark horse of South American, their star, has shined brightest in the last three competitions, winning twice and defeating the Argentine national team while at it. They don’t exactly fit in as the big boys in this competition but are full of surprises. Coach Martin Lasarte will be trying to repeat the outcomes of 2015 and 2016 when they are faced again with la Albiceleste in the group stages of group A.

La Roja’s talisman, Alexis Sanchez, had a redemptive season at inter this year. Who knows if the entire team might catch the mojo and turn up when needed. It might seem to some punters that the best days of Chilean Continental Football might be in the rearview for now. However, they have the entire competition to prove the naysayers wrong.

Odds Comparison

S/N Country to Win Odds Comparison

Summary
