Copa America Quarter-Final Preview & Odds

The Copa America has reached the quarter-finals and the tournament remains wide-open with most of the tournament’s big-hitters through to the last eight. With four mouth-watering quarter-final ties set to take place at the weekend, here at we’ll assess the chances of some of the market leaders, offering tips and insights as well as providing the latest quarter-final and outright odds from our partners at William Hill.

Argentina v Ecuador

World champions Argentina remain the bookies’ favourites to win a second successive Copa America title in what is likely to be Lionel Messi's last ever major international tournament. Messi has endured a frustrating tournament up to now with a groin injury keeping him out of Argentina’s final group game against Peru. Messi failed to score in the group stage of the Copa America for the first time in his career. Lautaro Martinez has certainly stepped up amidst Messi’s struggles and the Inter Milan forward leads the Golden Boot race with four goals in three group games.

Argentina topped Group A having won all three group games against Canada (2-0), Chile (1-0) and Peru (2-0) without conceding a single goal. Quarter-final opponents Ecuador edged out Mexico on goal difference to progress from Group B as runners up behind Venezuela. Ecuador kicked off their tournament with a 2-1 defeat against the eventual group winner but took four points from a possible six in matches against Jamaica (3-1) and Mexico (0-0).

Argentina have won six and drawn one of their last seven matches against Ecuador including a 1-0 friendly win less than a month ago. At 4/9, Argentina to win inside 90 minutes against Ecuador is arguably the best bet of the entire weekend. Having scored in the last five minutes of each game Argentina have been involved in so far, Lautaro Martinez to score the last goal of the game versus Ecuador looks excellent value at 7/2.

Recommended Bets

  • Argentina to win to nil - Evens
  • Lautaro Martinez to score last - 7/2

Copa America: Lautaro Martinez group stage goals

Venezuela v Canada

Tournament debutants Canada reached the knockout stage at the expense of Chile and Peru in Group A despite managing to score just one goal in their three group games. Under the guidance of former Leeds United boss Jesse Marsch, Canada started their tournament with a 2-0 defeat against holders Argentina before a Jonathan David strike earned them a 1-0 win over Peru in their second match. Canada held Chile to a 0-0 draw in their final group game to progress with four points from a possible nine.

Two years out from hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup alongside USA and Mexico, Canada were the only one of the tournament’s three co-hosts to have made it beyond the group stage.

Venezuela impressed in the group stage, winning all three of their Group B matches. Venezuela kicked off their tournament with a 2-1 win against Ecuador before following up with wins against both Mexico (1-0) and Jamaica (3-0).

34-year-old Salomon Rondon has rolled back the years at the Copa America, netting twice in Venezuela’s three group games but whilst he’ll prove popular in the goalscorer markets, we’re tipping Canada’s prolific forward Jonanthan David to prove the difference at the AT&T Stadium.

Recommended Bets

  • Under 2.5 match goals - 4/7
  • Jonathan David to score first - 7/1

Copa America: Salomon Rondon stars in the group stage

Colombia v Panama

The dark horses take on the surprise package in the third quarter-final as Colombia and Panama prepare to meet at the State Farm Stadium this weekend. Seven points from three group games helped Colombia extend their unbeaten run to 26 matches in all competitions. The 2001 Copa America winners earned wins over Paraguay (2-1) and Costa Rica (3-0) before holding Brazil to a 1-1 draw in their final group game to top Group D ahead of the Brazilians.

Of the eight sides to progress to the knockout stage, Colombia’s opponents Panama boasted the worst defensive record by some distance in the group stage. Panama conceded five times in their three group games and failed to keep a single clean sheet. Having started their Copa America campaign with a 3-1 defeat against Uruguay, Panama bounced back to earn wins over both USA (2-1) and Bolivia (3-1).

Recommended Bets

  • Colombia -1 (handicap betting) - 19/20
  • Both teams to score - 6/5

Match Odds

Copa America highlights: Colombia 1-1 Brazil

Uruguay v Brazil

Arguably the closest quarter-final to call and from a neutral perspective probably the most anticipated of the weekend’s four fixtures. Uruguay were superb throughout the group stage, winning all three matches and scoring a tournament high nine goals in wins over Panama (3-1), Bolivia (5-0) and USA (1-0).

Darwin Nunez has been a revelation under Marcelo Bielsa and the Liverpool forward scored twice in the group stage whilst Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde is an early contender for Player of the Tournament.

Brazil have been dealt a major blow ahead of the knockout stage with Vinicius Jr set to serve a one-game suspension at the weekend having picked up two bookings in his side’s three group games. Vinicius Jr has scored twice at this summer’s Copa America and his absence may swing the tie in Uruguay’s favour. Extra goalscoring responsibility will now fall on the shoulders of Vinicius Jr’s Real Madrid teammate Rodrygo.

Rodrygo has underperformed in the USA this summer and failed to register a single group stage goal. Brazil had to settle for second place in Group D after being held to two draws in their three games so far. Brazil were frustrated by Costa Rica in a goalless opener and despite earning a comfortable 4-1 win over Paraguay in their second game, a 1-1 draw in their third and final match was enough to see Colombia top Group D.

Recommended Bets

  • Darwin Nunez to score at any time - 2/1
  • Over 2.5 match goals - 11/8
