Copa America final! How to watch Argentina – Brazil, odds, predictions

2 Comments

The 2021 Copa America has been held in Brazil after it was delayed from last summer, and then moved from former co-hosts Colombia and Argentina.

It was moved from the former due to ongoing political unrest, while the latter has seen a surge in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.

That saw Brazil step in at the last minute to host the tournament, but that doesn’t mean players and staff are particularly happy about the tournament taking place.

Five stadiums in four Brazilian cities will host the tournament, with the Maracana and Estadio Nilson Santos in Rio, plus the Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha in Brasilia, Arena Pantanal in Cuiaba and the Estadio Olimpico in Goiania.

The Selecao are favorites for the tournament, while Lionel Messi aims to win his first-ever major trophy for the Albiceleste as time is ticking on his career. So many Premier League stars will be on show for Brazil and Argentina, so this is always a tournament to keep a close eye on.

Elsewhere, the likes of Uruguay, Colombia, and Chile have all looked dangerous, but the traditional powers will fancy their chances of being crowned champions of South America.

These 10 teams know each other extremely well as they are currently doing battle in 2022 World Cup qualifying too. This should be epic.

Below is everything you need to know for Copa America with the schedule, groups, betting odds, predictions, how to watch info and more.
