The final of Copa America 2021 is here, and it’s a battle of the two footballing giants in South America as Brazil take on Argentina at the Estadio do Maracana in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday night. Betting Planet’s soccer expert presents his best bets and match analysis for what will be the 113th match between these two titans of world football.

Brazil vs Argentina betting preview

Brazil are set to compete in their 21st Copa America final, and it will be the 34th time they face Argentina in the tournament’s history as the 2019 champions look to defend their crown. Brazil booked their spot in a second straight decider with a 1-0 win over Peru in the semi finals, where a 35th-minute goal from Lucas Paqueta was enough to see them through. Despite constantly peppering Peru’s goal, it was hardly a comfortable passage into the decider with Peru creating several chances of their own.

Led in attack by Neymar with support from the likes of Paqueta, Richarlison and Everton, this Brazilian side is stacked with talent. In six games at the Copa America tournament, Brazil’s backline has conceded just two goals from six matches, which is no surprise considering their defensive setup. With Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Danilo and Renan Lodi in front of Ederson, the Argentine attack will have to work hard to break them down.

Argentina are back in the Copa America final and will be out to capture their first title at the tournament since 1993. Their passage was not as straightforward as their rivals, with penalties required to separate Argentina and Colombia. However, it was Argentina’s goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez who produced three stunning saves in the shootout to help his side progress.

As always, Lionel Messi will be front and centre for Argentina on Saturday night. Could the 2021 Copa America be Messi’s time to finally grab a major international trophy after so many attempts? He has formed a formidable partnership with Lautaro Martinez in attack, with Messi setting up the Inter Milan man’s last two goals against Ecuador and then Colombia.

Brazil vs Argentina predictions & best bets

Match result: Argentina

Despite entering the 2021 Copa America final as underdogs, this Argentinian side has what it takes to defy the odds and break down this star-studded Brazil line-up. No team in this year’s tournament starts games as fast as Argentina, who have netted four goals in the opening 15 minutes of their games. Brazil were far from convincing against Peru, and they may find it hard to get back in the game if the Argentines strike first.

Argentina to win (90 minutes)


Anytime assist: Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi has been provider and finisher in the 2021 Copa America, bagging five assists and four goals in the tournament. We expect him to set up another Argentine goal in the final by teeing up Lautaro Martinez or potentially Alejandro Gomez or Sergio Aguero off the bench.
