Argentina v Colombia Betting Odds*
Argentina News and Form
Argentina have been unable to get over the finish line in recent Copa America campaigns. They have finished as the runner up in four of the last five editions of the tournament. They have lost the last two finals via penalty shootout against Chile. In the last edition they were prolific in front of goal at the tournament, but fell flat and bottled it in the Final.
Can they go one better this time? They have Lionel Messi fit and playing, which is more than what Brazil have with their star player Neymar out injured. The attacking unit of Argentina is fantastic with Messia, Paulo Dybala and Sergio Aguero. That’s an enviable line-up, but will they be cohesive and actually perform? Despite their wealth of attacking talent, the Albicelse don’t always play the most expensive of games.
Their warm-up has been fairly low key and they are W6 D1 L2 in their last nine games. They have won four of their last five, three of them with a clean sheet, in fixtures against Mexico and Morocco. Coupled with those failures at the Copa America recently and a round of sixteen exit at last year’s World Cup, they will be feeling the pressure. They have at least managed to integrate more youth into their set up particularly in the middle of the park.

Colombia News and Form
Colombia look to be a bit of a threat in this tournament. They have a W5 L1 record behind them in their build-ups and they look pretty fluent in front of goal. They have scored at least two goals in five of their last eight. Their final two warm-up matches ahead of the tournament were back to back 3-0 victories over Panama and Peru. Colombia made it to the round of sixteen at the 2018 World Cup where they were stopped on penalties by England. Three years ago at the last Copa America, they made a big impression.
They were the third place finishers after beating the USA 1-0 in the third-place playoff. That was their best result at the tournament since winning it in 2011. They do seem to be in pretty good shape and they are quite a youthful side as well. They are still persisting with Radamel Falcao up front and the goalscoring department is perhaps the one area in which they fall down. But after a good season with Atalanta, Duvan Zapata has a big chance to make a splash in the tournament after having been drafted in.

Who will win – Argentina v Colombia Predictions
A big fixture for both to open with. At the end of the day, the draw does have the most appeal. Neither are going to want to lose and it may just all fall a bit flat. They would both be happy with a point each as well you imagine, given that they will both only have Paraguay and Qatar to come.
