Today’s Best Copa America Bet: Tuesday, July 2


Leigh Copson: Back Brazil to win to nil vs. Argentina @ 17/10 Coral

The stakes are high when the biggest rivalry in South American football continues with a Copa America semi-final clash between Brazil and Argentina, but who will win this match, march onto the final and stay on course to be crowned kings of the continent?

It would not be unfair to say that host national Brazil have underwhelmed so far, so much so that they were booed by supporters during and after a couple of their group stage games. That is somewhat understandable – they were poor throughout a 3-0 win over Bolivia and were then frustrated and held to a goalless draw by Venezuela. In response the Selecao produced an improved performance in a 5-0 rout of Peru, but it took penalties for them to scrape past Paraguay in the quarter-finals so they are clearly still looking for that something they need to spark their campaign.

The same can be said for Argentina, who are through to the semi-finals after surviving an almighty scare in the group stage. A defeat to Colombia and draw with Paraguay left them on the brink of an embarrassing early exit, but they kept alive their campaign with a 2-0 win over Qatar and then booked their place in the final four by beating Venezuela by a similar scoreline. Those two wins have hardly set the world alight though and if they are to advance they will need to show some serious improvement to get the better of Brazil. So can they?

I am not convinced. Brazil have hardly shone but their struggles have come against teams that tend to sit deep and force the Selecao to try to break them down. That is not an approach I expect to see from an Argentina team that, in all honesty, is pretty unimpressive at the back and have tended to concede when coming up against decent calibre opposition in recent years. And of course, at the other end of the pitch we have not seen much from Lionel Messi so fare either and Argentina seem to need a moment of individual brilliance to get them going.

Brazil, on the other hand, are a more well-drilled and organised team who do not concede many goals. That makes them my pick for Tuesday night’s semi-final clash and I would not be surprised to see them win this match without conceding. They have, after all, they have shut out 12 of their last 14 opponents and one of those was Argentina (Brazil beat them 1-0 last October).
