Argentina betting news and analysis

Argentina, one of the world’s soccer giants, is slowly but surely moving from its previous generation to the next. Lionel Messi, one of the best soccer players of all time, is still playing an important role, but he is no longer the centerpiece of everything Argentina does. Even though he has played in three of Argentina’s four games, he has just one assist and no goals.

Their star offensive player has been Lautaro Martinez, who leads the team with four goals in the tournament. This is not a shock, as Martinez had an excellent season playing for Inter in the Italian Serie A, scoring 24 goals, the most in his club career. He has turned his club success into international team success. Argentina needs to get Martinez in good positions early and pressure Canada by taking an early lead.

Canada betting news and analysis

Canada has not always made things look easy in the 2024 Copa América, but making it to the semifinals is a huge accomplishment for the squad. Having lost to Argentina once already, Canada needs its best performance to pull off an upset that would potentially be the biggest win in the nation’s history. The Canadians must keep the game within reach for as long as possible and hope their youth can press Argentina in the second half.

The average age of Canada’s team is 26.4 years old, to 29.1 years old for Argentina. Canada has some young stars developing into a solid squad that could be the nation’s golden generation. However, they need some of their young attackers to produce more, as Canada has scored only two goals in the tournament. If they can get a special moment or two from star players like Jonathan David or Alphonso Davies, they have the talent to make this matchup with Argentina more exciting than their first one.

Argentina vs. Canada prediction

Expect this match to be closer and more exciting than the squad’s first matchup of the tournament. Canada will have a few moments where they scare Argentina; if it capitalizes, it could lead to an upset. The likely outcome, though, is that because of its scoring power, Argentina puts too many goals on the scoresheet for Canada to match.
