Argentina Preview and Copa America Cup History

The defending champion, Argentina, has a favorable group to advance to the knockout stage. Bookmakers have listed the 2022 FIFA World Cup Champions as the favorites to win Group A and the favorites to retain their Copa America title with odds in their favor. Since the 2015 Copa America, Argentina has only failed to top the group once. Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has included a mix of experienced players, including Argentina's all-time top scorer Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, Emiliano Martinez, Nicolas Otamendi, and others.

Argentina has won the tournament fifteen times, the joint-record holder with Uruguay. Argentina is also the only team to win the title three consecutive times (1945–1947). They are the second runner-up in the Copa American tournament, with a record of 14 times.

Chile Preview

Chile is considered the second-favorite team to advance to the knockout stage in Group A by bookmakers, despite struggling with form in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualification. Chile sits in eighth place in the qualification table with five points and has only scored three goals so far in the qualifier. Chile's new coach, Ricardo Gareca, will hope his squad can get back to form and advance to the knockout stage. Since the 2004 Copa America, Chile has consistently advanced to the knockout stage in subsequent editions after failing to qualify in 2004. So we back them up to advance to the knockout stage as a second runner-up.

Peru Preview and Copa America Cup History

Peru is considered the third favorite to advance, but it wouldn't be surprising if they made it to the elimination round. Peru has advanced to the knockout round in their last 10 Copa America appearances, and they even finished as runners-up in 2019.

Peru has a strong history in Copa America, having won two titles, and they have consistently been competitive, often advancing to the later stages of the tournament. Their historical record in the tournament and strong performances set high expectations for their campaign in the 2024 edition. Peru made it to the last four in four of their last five Copas, besides having won the tournament twice (1939 and 1975). Their recent best was a runner-up finish in the 2019 edition that was held in Brazil.

Canada Preview and Copa America Cup History

Canada is considered an underdog in Group A by bookmakers, given their chances of advancing to qualify for the knockout stage at 3.50 odds. The Great White North team advances to the Copa America in the playoff promotions of the CONCACAF by beating Trinidad & Tobago in the final stage. Canada coach Jesse Marsch will believe in the experience of players like Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David to see if they have a chance of pulling off an upset in the 2024 Copa America tournament.

Canada will be taking part in their first-ever Copa America when they land in the USA. It is worth noting that Canada is a two-time CONCACAF Gold Cup champion and will be hoping to make an impact when they make their debut in the Copa America.
