Argentina vs Colombia: Predictions

Argentina is the favorite, and we are all in on their victory here. The Colombians are a good team, but on the other side, they have a much better rival, with its leader (Messi) on fire in recent times.

Argentina are the favorites to win their clash against Colombia, with Colombia showing glimpses of their defensive fragility throughout the qualifying campaign. Argentina would be hoping to enter the Copa America tournament with a victory over their fierce rivals Colombia, with the Colombians also looking to qualify the the finals in Qatar with ease, with a victory over Argentina opening up the group table for the rest of the campaign.

The winner of this game will progress to the final: It’s been a long time since Colombia has managed to reach the final stage of Copa America, to be precise, it was in 2001. That year the team won its first and only title from this competition. After taking out Uruguay in the quarter-finals, now Colombia has a chance to trip up Argentina as well.

The favorites, on the other hand, have missed just 2 of the last 5 Copa America finals. However, they were unable to triumph in neither of those games. The other semi-final match is between Brazil and Peru, which means that the winner of this game will most likely play Brazil in the final.

Argentina vs Colombia: Preview

One of the biggest clashes in this summer’s Copa America comes on Saturday night, as Group B’s heavyweights go head to head. These two sides will each have ambitions of winning the whole tournament, only one can win their opener. Will Argentina finally secure success after back to back defeats in the final, or will this be a huge year for a Colombia side who have the attacking talent to make an impact in Brazil this year?

These two nations may be at opposite ends of the continent, but they are co-hosting the next Copa America 12 months from now. They are sharing hosting duties as the competition moves in sync with the European Championships. However, they’re rivals on the field in this tournament as they each look to book top spot in Group B. Argentina have drawn 0-0 with Chile in the last two finals, losing on penalties in each. They’ve been runners-up in four of the last five Copa Americas, last winning it back in 1993.

Colombia’s one and only Copa America victory came in 2001 when they hosted the tournament. They went on to finish third in the 2016 edition, but how far will they go this time around? Their attacking talents are likely to play a huge part in that, especially with James Rodriguez in the shop window and aiming to return to the heights of his 2014 World Cup displays. While Juan Cuadrado and Rodriguez will be key in midfield, up front Colombia can choose between Radamel Falcao, Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata. Muriel is currently being chased by top teams in Italy, while Duvan Zapata fired Atalanta to the Champions League last term.

Argentina’s big boost is the return of Lionel Messi, who desperately wants to win something with his country. With boss Lionel Scaloni building the side around him while including the country’s other brilliant attackers, we expect an offensive Argentina side in Brazil this summer. That should set us up for an entertaining clash with Colombia here.

Colombia have been flexing their muscles ahead of this tournament, picking up back to back 3-0 wins. Argentina did the same, with a 5-1 win over Nicaragua helping to erase the memories of a 3-1 loss to Venezuela. They saw over 2.5 goals in all of their matches on the way to the final of the last Copa America, so we’re backing Argentina to rack up more goals here. Over 2.5 is our tip for this clash, which seems like value given the talent up front for each side.
