Copa América 2024: Messi will take all the laurels

Date: July 18, 2024 Time: 11:42:46

Not only are there passions at Euro 2024, but a large-scale football celebration abroad is also planned. The Copa América begins in the United States on the night of June 21 and 16 teams will compete for the prestigious trophy. There are enough top stars in the national teams and this tournament should not be overlooked. Who is the main contender for the title and who will score the most goals?

Messi and Di María stopped time

The world champion and current winner of the Copa América is the clear favorite of the tournament. Let’s consider that in the last five years, Argentina lost only three games: against Brazil in the semifinals of the 2019 Copa América, against Saudi Arabia in the 2022 World Cup and against Uruguay in the 2026 World Cup qualification.

Coach Lionel Scaloni has already formed the final candidacy for the Copa América, including almost all the veterans who won the World Cup in Qatar. It included Ángel Di María, Lautaro Martínez, Emiliano Martínez and, of course, Lionel Messi. But the Argentine coach also thinks about the prospects of the national team, which is why he brought youngsters Alejandro Garnacho and Valentín Carboni to the United States.

The Germans steeled themselves:

Germany – Hungary. Nagelsmann and Kroos will move mountains at home

Let us remember that the Argentine team will play in the same group with Canada, Peru and Chile. Betting houses highly value the fusion of daring youth and great experience: you can bet on Argentina’s victory in the Copa América with odds of 2.75.

Vinicius Júnior and Endric will resurrect the Brazilians from the ashes

The great Brazilian forward Ronaldinho criticized the team and said that this is the worst squad in recent years. It is possible that the former Barcelona star is too excited, since the presence of Vinicius Junior and Endrick in the Copa América candidacy seems very interesting.

Although it must be admitted that Brazil has rightly lost the trust of its fans. After a poor performance in the 2022 World Cup, the team managed to lose three games in a row in qualifying for the 2026 World Cup: Uruguay (0-2), Colombia (1-2) and Argentina (0-1). The long-awaited changes followed at the head of the national team, which was headed by Dorival Junior. He is determined to revive the winning tradition and trusts the young stars.

The “ladies” are being rehabilitated:

Croatia-Albania. Modric deserves to win

As for the friendly matches, it seems that the Brazilians have returned to their roots and are using an offensive scheme. It is difficult to say yet whether the new coach will help them regain their former glory, but you can take a chance and bet on Brazil’s victory in the Copa América with odds of 3.25.

Marcelo Bielsa can surprise

In the spring of 2023, the management of the Uruguay national team passed into the hands of Marcelo Bielsa. The most experienced specialist has earned a controversial reputation for his bold and sometimes logical decisions, but here he fits the puzzle almost perfectly.

The team, subject to emotional swings, and Bielsa gave a great result. Particularly incredible was the three-game qualifying streak for the 2026 World Cup, in which the Uruguayans successively beat Brazil (2-0), Argentina (2-0) and Bolivia (3-0).

There was also room for another Bielsa eccentricity: he called up a player from an amateur club for a friendly match for the national team. But in the United States the support will be in the usual leaders: Darwin Núñez, Rodrigo Bentancur and the veteran Luis Suárez. The victory of the Uruguayans in the Copa América is estimated at a odds of 6.00.

Forecast

Lionel Messi said in a recent interview that he is enjoying every minute on the field as he nears the end of his career. With his performances at Inter Miami and in the national team, he shows his motivation and is in good shape, so Argentina will be the main contender for victory. And in general, Lionel Scaloni has an excellent squad, and the Argentine coach has already demonstrated his talent with his victory in the 2022 World Cup.

Furthermore, Messi is quite capable of winning the scoring race. Argentina is likely to reach the final, so the national team captain will have enough games to add to his personal goal tally in the Copa América. You can bet that Argentina will win the Copa América and Lionel Messi will be the top scorer for 6.00.

Tender: Argentina will win the Copa América and Messi will be the top scorer at 6.00.
