Competition: Copa America

Market: Argentina win

Odds: 3/10 @ 1xBet

Getting their Copa America adventure underway in the early hours of Friday, world champions Argentina will meet Canada in Atlanta.

Starting with Argentina, making real history out in Qatar 18 months ago as they were crowned world champions for a first time since 1986, the South American giants have only continued on another sensational romp. Last seen picking up a routine 4-1 victory against Guatemala, Lionel Scaloni’s men are pencilled in as a leading Copa America contender this summer. Making a major World Cup qualifying statement back in November as they secured a 1-0 win against arch-rivals Brazil, La Albiceleste will certainly be looking to make an early statement here. In fact, continuing on from their iconic Middle Eastern success in the winter of 2022, Argentina have remarkably won 19 of their previous 20 matchups across all fronts. Now sat firmly at the top of the FIFA rankings and in the midst of what has become a sensational run of form, Scaloni’s superstar squad will be relishing their trip to Atlanta in the early hours of Friday.

As for Canada, enduring what was a major World Cup nightmare out in Qatar 18 months ago as they lost all of their three Group F appearances by an aggregate score of 7-2, the Reds have recently got a new era underway. Appointing former Leeds boss Jesse Marsch last month, Les Rouges are hoping to find some recent stability. Although they might have been last seen putting in a gutsy performance as they snatched a 0-0 stalemate away at European heavyweights France, Canada have won just a pair of their previous seven appearances across all competitions. Facing what is a monumental challenge when they open their Copa America adventure in Atlanta, Marsch’s new squad will be concerned by their only historic meeting against the reigning world champions. Suffering a 5-0 drumming when they last met La Albiceleste back in May 2010, it is hard to see anything other than a similar Argentina victory here.
