Argentina vs Canada Team Overview 


The world champions, Argentina, will open their account in the Copa America competition against Canada in the early hours of Friday, looking to get off to a winning start.

Argentina, the current holders of the Copa America after beating their old foes Brazil in the final in 2021, will look to get a win against Canada, the debutantes in the Copa America tournament.

Lionel Scaloni’s La Albiceleste have been in fine form, winning 13 times and losing once in their last 14 outings. This means they will kick off against Canada with significant momentum. 

In their last two international warmup games, they edged Ecuador 1-0 before thumping Guatemala 1-4. They have won all their last five matches, including a 0-1 triumph over Brazil.

Canada will make their first appearance in the Copa America after six CONCACAF teams made it into the tournament.

Canada will look to test themselves against the major footballing sides in the Copa America, and they do not come bigger than the World Cup and Copa America holders, Argentina.

Canada changed managers ahead of the tournament, with Jesse Marsch taking over the reins of the Canucks. The manager made his bow with a heavy 4-0 defeat against the Netherlands in a friendly clash before responding by holding France to a draw.

They have won twice in their last five outings ahead of the tournament. They have also lost twice and drawn once. Their consistency will be a major factor ahead of their clash against Argentina.

Argentina vs Canada Head-to-Head Statistics 

Argentina and Canada have met once since 2010. In that match, the Albiceleste routed Canada 5-0, asserting their dominance and quality.

Football bet predictions heavily back Argentina ahead of their opener in Group A, given their pedigree and recent success at the tournament. 

Argentina vs Canada Player Focus 

Lionel Messi, 36 years old and playing in Major League Soccer (MLS), is still a major player for Lionel Scaloni’s side. The attacker, who played for clubs like Barcelona and PSG, will be hungry for more silverware after recent successes in the Copa America and World Cup.

The diminutive player is still a fine goalscorer, has a burst of pace, and has the trust of his teammates to be the difference maker on the pitch. Expect Lionel Messi to be the key player in this match for Argentina.

Canada will look to be compact and solid in how they line up to contain and absorb some of the danger areas from Argentina. However, Jesse Marsch is known to have an attacking intent. Our football predictions analysis forecasts that Canada will be dangerous on the counterattack.

However, the key players will be the two midfielders, Eustaquio and Kone. They will be pivotal in ensuring that they are not overrun in midfield, keeping the team’s shape, and launching transition attacks when they win the ball back.

Argentina vs Canada Tactical Analysis 

Lionel Scaloni is set to retain the fluid 4-4-2 formation he has used in pre-tournament matches. Lionel Messi will play with either Lautaro Martínez or Julián Álvarez up front, supported by Enzo Fernandez and Alexis Mac Allister in midfield. 

This tactical approach gives the team a territorial advantage in midfield and out-wide, allowing them to be defensively solid and create overloads to overwhelm their opponents.

Canada’s 4-4-2 formation will be primarily designed to contain. According to expert soccer predictions, Jesse Marsh will be reactive in the choice of shape and personnel in this match to ensure they contain the Argentinian danger before springing lightning-fast attacks on the counter.

Argentina vs Canada Prediction 

  • Football pick: Total Over 1.5
  • Odds: 1.21 (22Bet)
  • Score prediction: Argentina 2-0 Canada

Lionel Scaloni’s side have the firepower to overwhelm Canada in this opening match. They are in a confident mood and have momentum going into the tournament. Canada is making its first appearance in the Copa America against the holding champions, and football predictions do not back them to spoil Argentina’s day.

Argentina will win and get off to a flier.

Argentina vs Canada Betting Tip 

  • Football Pick: The first goal to be scored from open play by kicking
  • Odds: 1.39 (22Bet)

With Enzo Fernandez and Alexis Mac Allister in midfield and Lionel Messi dovetailing through the spaces and gliding at defenders, Argentina have the best recipe to score a goal from open play.

While Canada are threatening from set pieces, they are expected to play on the back foot and be pushed back, offering the only goal threat they have a counter-attack through open play.

This highlights why the first goal is likely to be scored from open play by kicking.
