Bet on Argentina to winΒ 

This will be a tight game. Argentina are the better team. However, Colombia have pulled above their weight in this tournament. They overcame the more technically gifted Uruguay in their semi-final clash. James Rodriguez is also in the type of form that he was during the 2014 World Cup as his strong performances for Colombia in that tournament earned him a move to Real Madrid.

Argentina are more composed on the ball and should do what they need to do to win- just about.

Bet on Argentina to win 1-0

Colombia have an astute defence. They have so far only conceded twice in this tournament- against Brazil and Paraguay. They will make life difficult for Lionel Messi and the world-class Argentina attack. Colombia will track back in high numbers as they will know that Argentina are likely to have the bulk of the ball. In the end, while Argentina will not find it easy to penetrate the Colombian defence, Messi and Lautaro Martinez should come up with at least one moment of magic that will see their side over the line.

Bet on Lionel Messi to score

This is likely to be Messi’s last ever Copa America game. While he is past his prime, he will still be unplayable if he is on song. Expect him to produce one moment of magic in his final Copa America game that will see his side over the line.

What the coaches say?

Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni hailed the grit of his side after they advanced to the final of the tournament.

“It is extremely tough to reach another final. It is tough because we know how hard it is to get there,” Scaloni told reporters.

“The bar has been set very high. Everyone thought it was going to be a bed of roses and it wasn’t like that at all. Canada proved it today by being a very difficult opponent.”
