This tournament will be the 46th edition of the Copa América, the quadrennial international men's association football championship organized by South America's football ruling body CONMEBOL. It will be held in Brazil. Chile are the two-time defending champions, having won the 2015 and 2016 editions of the tournament. (source Wiki)
Originally, the 2019 Copa América was to be hosted by Chile, while Brazil was due to host the 2015 Copa América due to CONMEBOL's rotation policy of tournaments being held in alphabetical order.
However, due to the organization of the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, 2014 FIFA World Cup, and the 2016 Summer Olympics in that country, Brazil decided against also hosting the 2015 Copa América. Brazil and Chile's football federations agreed to swap the order of being hosts of the 2015 and 2019 championships. This agreement was approved by CONMEBOL in 2012.
The 2019 Copa America will be the final edition played on odd years and with 12 teams. Starting in 2020, the tournament will be held in the same year as similar tournaments such as the UEFA European Championship.
- Apart from all ten CONMEBOL national teams which are eligible to enter, CONMEBOL initially planned to hold a 16-team tournament by inviting six teams from outside CONMEBOL. On 16 March 2018, CONMEBOL announced three teams from CONCACAF and three teams from Asian Football Confederation (AFC) would be invited to participate in the 2019 Copa América.
- On 12 April 2018, it was announced that Qatar, the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, accepted the invitation to participate in the tournament.
- On 4 May 2018, CONMEBOL announced that the tournament would instead be played with 12 teams, the same number as previous editions since 1993 (apart from the Copa América Centenario held in 2016), with the two guest teams being Qatar and Japan from the AFC. Both teams managed to reach the final of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup held in the UAE, which was won by Qatar.
- This will also be the first Copa América to not feature any team from CONCACAF since teams have been invited; in particular, Mexico, which have competed in all ten editions since 1993 as an invited team, will not participate in this tournament. United States have competed in four tournaments, including the 2016 event as host.
Chile vs Uruguay. Derby is ON! There is no pact between Men and Lions and I don't expect an easy win. Draw gathers high chances in this game and I hope both teams will please the crowd. Split bets in scores 2-3, 2-2 & 3-3 scores for inplay cash out trading.
Bolivia v Venezuela. The La Verdes sit comfortably at the bottom of the group's leader-board and the chances for going through to the next round, are scattered on the Copa America's air.
La Vinotintos on the other hand need to win this game and more likely they will go through to the next round along Brazil. If they can't score in this game, I think is better for next year to arrange a few friendly games with Tonga, Samoa and Cook Islands to
short out the problem. I expect an open game and the Over 3.5 goals market offers great value. Scores 2-3 & 2-2 for in play Cash out. (Partially lost)
Peru v Brazil. Please, please, please.... Don't start cheering ''Brazil, Brazil, Brazil'' again.
It looks like a win for the Seleção but I really can't put my finger on it.... 2-3 goals is my main prediction in this game. (Bets lost)
Colombia - Qatar. Both teams return in action with the Colombians to be the bookies'
favourite. I still believe that Qatar has all it takes to surprise us again. My estimate is to rain of goals and the Over 3.5 goals looks good to me. Feeling adventurous? Split bets on scores 3-2, 2-2 & 3-3 for inplay trading / cashout. They worth all the Gold in the world. (Although Draw remained up to 85', the bets lost)
Argentina - Paraguay. I have doubted the Argentinians in previous game but now I back them! This an entirely different game and I don't see the Paraguayans to keeping up! Argentina to win with Over 2.5 goals. 2-1 & 3-2 scores stand a chance with some luck. (Bets lost)
Uruguay - Japan. Unlucky for the Japanese because the ''raffle'' place them in a tough group. They conceded 4 goals against Chile and... how bad is going to be this time?
Over 2.5 goals is my main tip and I am after the ''surprise that Japanese could score a goal or... two. Scores 3-1 & 2-2. (Golden WIN! The 2-2 score matched up to @55.00 on Betfair Exchange).
Ecuador - Chile. La tricolors' defence has only one colour, the one of ''Jokes''. If there's some justice in this football world, Chile should win it with Over 2.5 goals. (Bet Won)
Brazil - Bolivia. The hosts hold the opening and face a 'tough cookie' in my view.
The visitors play tight in away games and they are not used to be 'humiliated'. What I am trying to say is, my main prediction is Under 2.5 goals @2.35 average price across popular
Now what puzzles me is the bookies 'tricks'. They favour Over 2.5 goals @1.55 average price but they offer score 2-0 @4.70 and 3-0 @5.50 average prices. This does not makes sense. If the Under 2.5 goals payout so high, the score 2-0 should payout at least @10.00 Felling adventurous? Score 1-1 @22.00 could be a 'surprisingly' addition to 2-0 score's
prediction for in play trading. (Partially Won - Cashed Out!)
Venezuela - Peru. The draw climbs high in this game although I favour slightly Peru's
experience. Both teams to score is my main prediction and scores 1-1 & 1-2 for in-
play trading. ( 0-0 draw but bets lost)
Argentina - Colombia. The bookies do not clearly favour the Argentinians and I could not agree more. I expect a tight game and it could go either way. Under 2.5 goals is my main tips and scores 1-0 & 0-1 for in-play trading. (Partialy Won - Cashed Out!)
Paraguay - Qatar. If I expect at least one surprise (among others) in this tournament, it's the team of Qatar. The Paraguayans don't convince me with their recent performance in contrast with their opponents who play ''convincing'' football in my view. 2-3 goals is my main prediction and scores 0-2 & 1-1 for in-play trading. (Draw but bets losts)
Uruguay - Ecuador. Not much to say about this game, I expect 'one way or another' to see the 'hosts' winning it with score 2-0 or 2-1. The market 2-3 goals offers great value. (Bets Lost)
Japan - Chile. Could the Japanese 'surprise' us? I don't think so, not in this
one at least. The hosts have improved a lot recently but Chile's side has some quality and
are in better form. 2-3 goals is my main prediction and scores 0-2 & 1-2 for in-play
trading. (Bets Lost)
