Ace Football previews the Copa America final between Argentina and Brazil and offers betting tips, the best odds, and predictions.

The final of the 2021 Copa America between Argentina and Brazil takes place in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday.

The pressure will be great for both sides. Argentina are desperate to end a 28-year wait for a major title and a win first one with Lionel Messi, who remains trophyless after four World Cups and six Copa America competitions. But Brazil are not to be underestimated, with the defending champions hoping to deliver in front of their home crowd once more.

Argentina on a roll.

Argentina enter this match on a really fine note as past weeks have brought a very acceptable run of results. In their previous 3 matches, Lionel Scaloni’s side demolished Bolivia in a 4-1 win and went on to a 3-0 win against Ecuador. Their latest match served up a 1-1 draw against Colombia.

A run of five consecutive victories should inspire confidence as Argentina seek to win their first Copa America title since 1993.

Brazilians continue to sparkle.

Brazil seem untouchable right now extending their winning run in their latest outing. In their last 3 matches, Tite’s side ended with a 1-1 draw against Ecuador, followed by a 1-0 win against Chile. Their most recent match brought a 1-0 win against Peru.

On the back of an superb record of 5 wins and 1 defeat in the last 6 games, Brazil look like a great bet for a win here.
