Argentina

Argentina are one of the biggest and most successful footballing nations in the world. La Selección won the 2021 Copa America and the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Lionel Messi and company are expected by many to clinch the 2024 edition of the Copa America as well. 

Lionel Scaloni’s side kicked off their 2024 Copa America campaign with a 2-0 victory over Canada at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Julian Alvarez and Lautaro Martinez scored the goals for Argentina.

Argentina will next face Chile in Group A before taking on Peru in their final group stage. Chile are a good side, but La Albiceleste should be able to pick up all three points from the game and ascertain their place in the next stage of the competition.

Argentina are likely to line up in a 4-4-2 formation. Emiliano Martinez will be in goal and will have Molina, Romero, Lisandro Martinez and Acuna in front of him in defence. Di Maria, De Paul, Lo Celso and Mac Allister will be the four midfielders. Messi and Alvarez will lead the line for Lionel Scaloni’s side.

Peru

Jorge Fossati’s side, though, are going to find it tough to make an impact in 2024 Copa América Group A. Peru have been drawn against Argentina, Chila and Canada in the group. Argentina and Chile are the clear favourites.

Peru kicked off their 2024 Copa America campaign with an encouraging goalless draw with Chile at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. They will face Canada in their second Group A fixture before taking on the mighty Argentina.
