The COPA America games have reached the semi-final with only four teams left in the tournament. The four teams have been paired, and the best two shall battle it out in the finals to find the winner of the tournament. The four teams in the tournament are all strong and are most likely to provide tough matches.
There are many factors that one has to put into consideration to know the team that is likely to win the tournament. The first factor that is to be considered is the level of the experience that the players have. The most experienced players are likely to win a match because they have been in the game for many years and know the different tricks that they can use to win any match. They also know the patterns that they can play to beat their opponents easily.
Individual talent is also very important because it will determine the extent to which the team is expected to perform. There are players who have the ability to help their teams win a tough match by the use of the individual talent that they have. The odds at BoydsBets show that Argentina and Chile are the favorites to advance.
USA v Argentina
The first game that is likely to be the topic of discussion is the USA versus Argentina, which involves two teams that are both strong. This is a tough match that is likely to have a few numbers of goals because both the teams have a good defensive play. Though Argentina has players who have individual talent and can help the team to win the game, USA also has the ability to pose a great threat to the defense of Argentina.
It will be a game that will be good to watch because it will be full of good attempts by both the team to win the match. The match is likely to be of a high standard because both the teams have experienced players who have the ability to use their individual knowledge to change the pattern of the game in an attempt to beat their opponent who are also very strong. Both teams have players who have played in various leagues and have the experience of how to beat teams that use a given pattern. This is likely to be used by both the teams, Argentina is likely to make use of the counter-attack because they have experienced strikers who can help them win use such a tactic.
In my opinion, Argentina is likely to win the match because they have better players compared to the United States of America. The number of goals of goals scored in the match will not be many since the game will involve two teams that have the best defenders who can help them avoid the many attempts that will be made by the strikers of the opposing team.
Colombia v Chile
The Colombia versus Chile match is also likely to be a tough game though not to the same extent to that of Argentina and USA. The match is likely to involve many attempts from the Chile side which has more experienced and talented players compared to the Colombian team.
Chile has players who have been playing for long and have gained the skills they need to be able to win such a match. They have the advantage of having a strong midfield that can enable them to push forward and score goals.
The Colombian team is likely to play most of the defensive game because Chile will be very offensive and if they do not defend they might be beaten easily. The match may also not have many goals in total because both teams have good defenders who have the ability to defend well and prevent the opponents from scoring in their goals. Both the teams also have good goalkeepers which is another factor that will make the number of goals not to be many. Chile is likely to win the match.
