Argentina vs Canada best bet: Argentina Win in Shutout (-113)

Argentina remain a formidable force in international football and the reigning Copa America and world champions look set to book their place in another final at Canada’s expense. Argentina have eased their way to the semifinal stage of this tournament and our prediction is for the Albiceleste to cruise through in a shutout win. Things didn’t go their way in the quarterfinals as a late Ecuador equalizer forced a penalty shootout, but Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez was once again the hero, making 2 crucial saves to send his team though to the final four.

The 1-1 tie was the first time Argentina had conceded in 4 games at these finals, and we predict another win and shutout for the defending champions. Canada offered little resistance on matchday one, as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of the Copa America holders with just 2 shots on target. Expect a similar sort of game here.
