Predictions for Quarter final matches – Copa America Argentina 2011

In a few hours, the Quarter finals will take place for the Copa America Argentina 2011 tournament. My picks in bold and red:

  • Colombia vs. Peru: Peru is better than a few years ago, but Colombia is a better team. I’m not expecting Colombia to trash Peru easily, but they got better strikers. As a peruvian, I hope that Paolo Guerrero and Juan Vargas can screw Colombia and pray to God that Guarín and Falcao don’t score against goalkeeper Raul Fernandez, but Colombia seems very solid as a whole right now.
  • Uruguay vs. Argentina: Expecting corruption in favor of Argentina as well as them playing with more aggresion and confidence. I don’t expect Lionel Messi to score, but I think Sergio “Kun” Agüero and Angel Di Maria will make an impact. Uruguay could strike with Forlan and Suarez, but Alvaro Pereira scored more than them in the competition, lol.
  • Brazil vs. Paraguay: Paraguay seems more solid all-around than Brazil, but Brazil is still dangerous as fuck with Neymar, Ganso and company. Still, gonna go against the common thought and side with Paraguay. But I wouldn’t be surprised if Brazil won.
  • Chile vs. Venezuela: Venezuela has improved, but Chile seems like the best team for now along with Colombia. Maybe Venezuela could surprise Chile, but Sanchez and Suazo will give Chile the edge.

  1. So Peru won 2-0 – which I’m glad for – and Uruguay is ahead 1-0. Man, I suck. But football/soccer is not easy to predict and has surprises. True story.
