Argentina vs Canada Preview & Picks

Canada are not expected to score in a losing effort against Argentina.

Argentina are strong defensively and are likely to keep a clean sheet as they open with a win over the Canadians.

  • Argentina won 13 of their last 14 games
  • Argentina kept clean sheets in 11 of their last 13 wins
  • Canada failed to score in their last 2 games 
  • Canada lost 3 of their last 6 games 

Head To Head

  • Argentina lead the all-time series 3-0
  • Argentina beat Canada 5-0 when the teams last met in 2010

Argentina Form

Argentina extended their winning run to seven games with a pre-tournament friendly victory against Guatemala.

Despite conceding a rare goal after just four minutes, Lionel Scaloni's men eased to a 4-1 victory, with Leo Messi and Lautaro Martinez helping themselves to a brace a piece. 

The reigning World Cup and Copa America champions, Argentina, have lost only two of 57 games played since 2019.

La Albiceleste kept clean sheets in four of their last five victories at the Copa America, including a 1-0 win against Brazil in the final three years ago. 

Canada Form

Canada wrapped up their Copa America preparations with a hard-fought 0-0 draw against France in Paris last week.

Jesse Marsch's side had fallen to a 4-0 defeat against Netherlands in the former Leeds boss's first match in charge four days earlier. 

Making their first-ever appearance at the Copa America, the Canucks have endured a tough run of form over the past year.

Canada failed to win eight of their last 11 games played since June 2023 (W3, D3, L5). 

Verdict

Argentina's superior quality and experience should prove the difference in a competitive Copa America opener.

I fancy the champions to win and keep a clean sheet as they win the game.
