We’re treated to a hugh South American clash early on in the Copa America this weekend and it should be a really exciting encounter. Argentina have lost the last two Copa America finals on penalties and will be desperate to finally lift the trophy this time around, but Colombia themselves will fancy their chances of going deep into the tournament. Falcao will captain their side in the tournament and Lionel Messi is back for Argentina, so goals look likely for our football betting tips.
Colombia will be relying on the likes of James Rodriguez and Juan Cuadrado to supply an exciting set of forwards including Duvan Zapata, who’s goals secured a Champions League place for Atalanta next season.
Lionel Messi is yet to win a major tournament with his country and after coming so close in the Copa America in recent seasons, and losing the World Cup final to Germany in Brazil in 2014, he will be desperate to finally lift a trophy. Argentina hve always blessed with fantastic attackers and this time around is no different, with Sergio Aguero and Paulo Dybala expected to support Messi.
The attacking players on show means we should get a fantastic tie here and goals look assured, so it would be no surprise to see a bet on a 2-2 correct score prove the right way to go. Argentina have been in good form since the World Cup, losing just two of their nine matches but the 3-1 loss against Venezuela would have been a concern defensively. Their most recent result was a 5-1 win over Nicaragua where Messi scored twice.
Colombia have been in similarly good form since losing to England on penalties at the World Cup. They’ve played eight times and lost just once, most recently beating both Peru and Panama 3-0.
A 2-2 draw is the first of our Argentina vs Colombia predictions and we’re also backing that up with a bet on the result to be a draw after 90 minutes. It looks tough to separate these two on paper and the betting odds suggest that too, with the best price for a draw being just 11/5 at Bet Victor.
The attacking talents in this match have already been talked about and with goals predicted for our betting tips, we can go for an anytime scorer too. It remains to be seen how Argentina manager Lionel Scaloni organises his starting line-up but in their recent friendly he went with Messi, Aguero and Lo Celso as a front three, leaving Dybala and Di Maria on the bench. Aguero didn’t score in that game and he perhaps isn’t as prolific for country as he is for Manchester City, however, at odds of 21/10 with Bet Victor to score in this match, he is hard to ignore.
From a Colombia anytime scorer point of view, Falcao is 11/5 but Zapata looks like the best bet at 5/2. He was on fire for Atalanta all season and it’d be no surprise to see him go close in the Copa America top goalscorer charts.
