Argentina vs. Canada Prediction on July 9, 2024

Match info

It came as little surprise when Argentina, the defending World Cup champion and 2024 Copa América favorite, advanced to the semifinals. Many were surprised, though, to see Canada join them for its first-ever Copa appearance. They defeated Venezuela 5-4 on penalties in the quarterfinals, setting up a meeting with Lionel Messi & Co. where they’ll try to take revenge on the South American powerhouse for the group stage defeat (0-2). Tuesday, July 9, at 8 p.m. local time is when Argentina and Canada will play at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New York, New Jersey.

Argentina is currently a -120 favorite to win the Copa América title as per any betting site in Argentina. Brazil was +350 second-favorites before it played Uruguay in a quarterfinal contest that promised to be intense. The odds are +2500 for Canada to win the Copa for the first time ever.

Meeting statistics

The current form of Argentina

When Argentina faced Ecuador in the quarterfinals on Thursday, it failed to secure a win in the first 90 minutes of play for the first time in eight games. Just as “La Albiceleste” (the “White and Sky Blue”) were leading 1-0 at the end of the first half thanks to a brilliant corner play that was fruitfully finished by Lisandro Martínez, Ecuador’s Kevin Rodríguez shocked the Argentine supporters by equalizing in the second minute of stoppage time. Nevertheless, Lionel Scaloni’s team defeated Ecuador in the shootout as Argentina’s Emiliano Martínez saved two penalties to outperform a colleague from the opposing side, Alexander Domínguez.

Despite substituting before netting two of his goals, Lautaro Martínez still leads the tournament in scoring with four goals in the group stage. Messi is still without a goal, although he did provide an assist for Lautaro Martínez’s opening goal of the competition in the 2-0 victory over Canada.

The current form of Canada

Canada advanced to the knockout stage with a 1-1-1 record in the group stage despite only scoring just one goal. They managed to sneak past Peru, 1-0, and hold Chile to a 0-0 tie after losing to Argentina.

For the most part of the matches against Peru and Chile, “Les Rouges” (the “Reds”) were taking on rivals who were with 10 men on the pitch, which was fortunate for them, but they demonstrated in the quarterfinals versus Group B winner Venezuela that their success wasn’t only due to chance. Throughout the first half, Canada was the more dangerous team, and Jacob Shaffelburg’s goal in the 13th minute gave it a 1-0 lead. This score remained unchanged until the 65th minute when Salomón Rondón equalized at 1-1 by taking advantage of mistakes made by the Canadian defense and goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau. However, Crépeau made up for his error in the shootout as Canada prevailed 4-3.

Head-to-head

There have only been two prior meetings between Canada and Argentina, with Argentina winning 2-0 on June 20th in the latest one. The only previous encounter was in 2010, when “La Albiceleste” thrashed Canada 5-0 at home.

Match analytics

After losing the first game 0-2 to Argentina, Canada has since kept three straight clean sheets. They won’t be able to escape the East Rutherford pitch unscathed at the end of a match-up versus Argentina, though.

We predict the Winning margin – Argentina by 2, with odds of 4 at 20BET.
