ARG vs BRA Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Argentina vs Brazil Copa America Live Score 11 July

Share

ARG vs BRA Dream11 Prediction: The iconic Maracana will witness yet another historic Copa America final as Argentina take on Brazil on Saturday. The pressure is mounting on the Lionel Messi-led Argentine camp, with the national team suffering a 28-year trophy drought in international football. A win this weekend may also help the footballing nation draw level with Uruguay as record champions of Copa America.

ARG vs BRA Dream11 Prediction

It is the Copa America final that everyone hoped for between hosts and reigning champions Brazil, and Lionel Messi-led Argentina. After several failed attempts over the past few years, including a couple of heartbreaking penalty shoot-out defeats to Chile, Messi has another chance – perhaps his last – to win a major honour in national colours. The task ahead of them couldn’t be more difficult though – beating Brazil on their own turf. The Brazilians were favourites coming into the tournament and they have firmly lived up to that billing by going unbeaten throughout the group stage and not conceding a goal in the knockout rounds.

Date: 11 July, Sunday
Time: 5:30 AM (IST)

Who will win?

In what may be the most difficult game of the tournament to predict, this could certainly go either way, and we would not be surprised to see it go to a penalty shootout. However, we narrowly give the edge to the host nation, who could capitalise on Argentina’s relative defensive weaknesses if Paqueta can continue his form alongside the likes of Neymar and Richarlison. In our ARG vs BRA Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 2-1 win for Brazil in this match.
