Argentina will face either Colombia or Ecuador in the Copa America quarterfinals.
Lionel Scaloni’s team finished second in their group, which means that the only way they may face Brazil is in a potential final. However, there is a quarter-final to contend with before reaching the final, and a win there would still guarantee a semi-final encounter.
While we know Argentina will finish in the top two, we also know the other group’s final results. To no one’s surprise, Brazil won the group, while Peru came in second. Colombia and Ecuador come in third and fourth place, respectively, while Venezuela finishes last in the group and misses out on the knockout rounds.
Argentina would face Ecuador in the quarterfinals if they finished first in their group. However, there is a second option.
In the quarterfinals, they will face Ecuador. A second-place finish, on the other hand, implies a quarterfinal encounter against Colombia.
Argentina would face either Colombia or the second-placed team in their current group if they won in the quarterfinals. Paraguay, Chile, or Uruguay are the options.
The group’s final game will be played on Monday, with Argentina facing Bolivia and Uruguay facing Paraguay.
