COPA AMERICA - 2015 (PREVIEW GROUP-A)

10.06.2015: ADHIRAJ DUTTA

CHILE

: : After a solid World Cup performance that saw them knock out Spain and give Brazil a scare, the hosts of this year's Copa America have looked a little rusty, losing friendly matches against Iran and Brazil. These losses have cost La Roja three positions in FIFA's ranking, but the Chileans are still on the world's top 20. With the veteran Juventus (Italy) star midfielder Arturo Vidal and Arsenal (England) striker Alexis Sanchez, The fourth-highest scorer in Chile’s history is coming off the back of a wondrous first season in the PL for Arsenal. After scoring 28 goals and relentlessly battering opposition defenses all season, the hosts will hope he’s not burned out.

Chile hopes homefield advantage will help it secure its first Copa America victory. Chile will benefit from having the weakest Group, and should advance deep into the tournament if its key players are able to stay healthy.

KEY PLAYER : Juventus (Italy) star midfielder Arturo Vidal and Arsenal (England) striker Alexis Sanchez.

COPA AMERICA PERFORMANCE : The six previous times Chile have hosted the Copa America they have finished third four times, runners up in 1955, 1956, 1979, 1987.

MEXICO

: Mexico comes to the Copa America with its sight set on the Copa de Oro, the most important tournament in the North and Central American region. With this tournament looming, most of their big names are staying home. ?Coach Miguel Herrera has called upon younger players with less international experience – with the notable exception of defender Rafa Marquez of Italian side Verona. Mexico is not expecting to do much in this tournament, and neither are most analysts. Mexico is the invitee team in this Edition of Copa america alongwith Jamaica.

KEY PLAYER : Defender Rafa Marquez of Italian side Verona's Center back and FC Twente's Jesús Manuel Corona, better known as Tecatito.

COPA AMERICA PERFORMANCE : Runners up – 1993, 2001

COACH : Miguel Herrera

EXPECTED LINe UP : (3-5-2): Jesus Corona; Julio Dominguez, Rafa Marquez, Hugo Ayala; Efrain Velarde, Tecatito, Juan Carlos Medina, Luis Montes; Raul Jimenez, Eduardo Herrera LAST 6 MATCHES OF MEXICO

ECUADOR

: : The Andean country is suffering from a number of unexpected injuries that have left their main stars out of the tournament, including RCD Espanyol (Spain) striker Felipe Caicedo, who recently suffered muscular injuries, as well as Manchester United (England) winger and National team captain, Antonio Valencia. The whole attack will solely depend on West Ham forward Enner Valencia as strikers Angel Meno and Michael Orroyo are both out due to injuries as well, practically decimating La Tri’s offense. If Ecuador manages to somehow advance into the second round, don't expect them to go much further.

KEY PLAYER : Enner Valencia – West Ham’s striker scored 11 goals in 19 games for Ecudaor.

BOLIVIA

: : The squad has a new coach in Mauricio Soria, who has vowed to lift Bolivia's play. Soria has selected a squad of players predominantly from its local league, and the tournament could provide an opportunity for them to shine and attract international offers. However given their standing at 89th place in the FIFA ranking and having been routed 0-6 by Argentina in a recent friendly, Bolivia is certainly not a favorite to win this year's Copa America, and is unlikely to advance beyond the group stage.

KEY PLAYER : Striker Marcelo Martins of Changechun Yatai of China and also played for Shakhtar Donetsk, Wigan Athletic, Gremio and Werder Bremen.

16.06.2015 - ADHIRAJ DUTTA : Argentina to face uruguay tomorrow.

Argentina take on Uruguay in La Serena in a crucial Group B encounter, where an Argentina loss can genuinely dent their hopes of securing a direct berth in the quarter finals of this year's Copa America in Chile. The Albiceleste squandered a 2-0 lead in their last match against Paraguay to end the match in a 2-2 draw, while Uruguay struggled to a 1-0 win against minnows Jamaica, thanks to a Cristian Rodriguez goal. Luis Suarez will not play the tournament as he is suspended for the whole tournament due to nine month international ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini during the 2014 World Cup.

With 56 goals, former Argentina forward Gabriel Batistuta is the highest goal scorer of Argentina. At the second spot, Lionel Messi is there with 45 goals in 97 games. Javier Zanetti have played most number of matches for Argentina [145 games].

For Uruguay, Luis Suarez have scored most times. So far in his career, the Barca player have netted 43 times. Another active player Diego Forlan have made most appearance [112 matches]. If Argentina wins the 2015 edition, they will equalize with Uruguay for the most Copa America title with 15.

Argentina once again will rely on captain Lionel Messi and Man City forward Sergio Aguero for goals. They will hope for an improved performance from the back 4 of Roncaglia, Otamendi, Garay and Rojo, as the defence was at fault for both goals during their match against Paraguay.

Meanwhile, with veteran Diego Forlan retiring and Luis Suarez still suspended following the infamous biting incident at the 2014 World Cup, their attack looks seriously depleted. Still the likes of Edison Cavani, Cristian Rodriguez and Diego Rolan have enough firepower between them to unsettle the Argentinian defence, which makes this Rio de la Plata derby a mouth watering clash and for the die-hard Indian football lovers, it should be worth setting an early 5am alarm to wake up and watch the match.

COPA AMERICA - 2015 ( GROUP ANALYSIS - GROUP B)

10.06.2015: ADHIRAJ DUTTA : The toughest group in the 44th edition of Copa Amrica. Argentina won 14 times, Uruguay won 15 times and Paraguay won 2 times alongwith Jamaica in this group of the 2015 Copa America. While the two teams, Argentina and Uruguay, are the favorites to book their ticket into the knock out stage.

ARGENTINA : After a successful performance in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the Argentine side is seeking its 15th Copa America title, which would put it on par with Uruguay for most South American titles. Argentina has called up its best players for the tournament, including its top strikers Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez both fresh from the Champions League final. According to FIFA's World Ranking, Argentina is the third best team in the world, making it the best ranking team in the tournament.

Argentina also benefits from being one of the teams that has suffered the least from injuries. Villareal defender Mateo Mussachio, who suffered a fracture in his left leg, is the only player who will not be available for selection. La Albiceleste is hungry for a tournament win, and they should go to the final as long as Messi maintains his incredible club football form.

PERFORMANCE IN COPA :: Winners 14 times (1921, 1925, 1927, 1929, 1937, 1941, 1945, 1946, 1947, 1955, 1957, 1959 (A), 1991, 1993) / RUNNERS UP - 12 TIMES.(1916, 1917, 1920, 1923, 1924, 1926, 1935, 1942, 1959, 1967, 2004, 2007)
COPA AMERICA 2011 : Quarterfinalist

Coach : Gerardo Martino
CPTAIN : Lionel Messi

KEY PLAYERS : Nahuel GUZMAN / Nicolas OTAMENDI- Valencia (Spa)/Javier MASCHERANO-Barcelona (Spa)/Lionel MESSI-Barcelona (Spa)/Sergio AGUERO-Manchester City (Eng).

EXPECTED LINE UP : (4-2-3-1): Sergio Romero; Pablo Zabaleta, Nicolas Otamendi, Martin Demichelis, Marcos Rojo; Javier Mascherano, Fernando Gago; Lionel Messi, Javier Pastore, Angel Di Maria; Sergio Agüero

URUGUAY : Currently holding more Copa America titles than any other team, defending champions Uruguay are looking to win their 16th tournament. La Celeste will rely on Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, who is coming off an outstanding season as the 2014-2015 Ligue 1 top goal scorer with 31 goals. Defensively, Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin has come into his own over the last few years and is widely regarded as one of La Liga’s best.

However, this year’s Uruguay side will be without Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, who is still suspended from his infamous World Cup biting incident. There is also a significant gap in midfield, and without the brilliance of former Atletico de Madrid striker Diego Forlan and Suarez, there will likely be too much reliance on an offensive spark from El Matador. Uruguayan coach Oscar Tabarez is leading a side that has not replaced the veterans from the 2010 World Cup and 2011 Copa America campaigns, but may squeek into the quarter finals.

PERFORMANCE IN COPA : Winners 15 times (1916, 1917, 1920, 1923, 1924, 1926, 1935, 1942, 1956, 1959 (E), 1967, 1983, 1987, 1995, 2011)/ RUNNERS UP- 6 TIMES (1919, 1927, 1939, 1941, 1989, 1991)

COPA AMERICA 2011 : WINNER
Coach : Oscar Tabarez.
CPTAIN : Diego Godin

KEY PLAYERS : Edinson Cavani, Giorgian de Arrasceata. LUIS SUZEZ can't play in this Copa as a suspention from FIFA in last Brazil World Cup match against Italy.

EXPECTED LINE UP : (4-4-2): Fernando Muslera, Maxi Pereira, Diego Godin, Jose Gimenez, Alvaro Pereira, Nicolas Lodeiro, Alvaro Gonzalez, Carlos Sanchez, Cristian Rodriguez, Christian Stuani, Edinson Cavani.

PARAGUAY : Ramon Diaz, who will debut as coach of the Paraguayan side, sees the regional tournament as a warm-up towards the classification stage for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Paraguay, who had climbed as high as the 10th ranked team in the World in the 2000 squad that featured goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert and and a young Roque Santa Cruz, has fallen to number 86 in World ranking. Coach Diaz says he aims at building a younger squad, leaving behind the veterans, which is just as well given that La Albirroja will likely see a first round exit from the tournament.

PERFORMANCE IN COPA : Winners 2 times (1953, 1979) / RUNNERS-UP- 6 times (1922, 1929, 1947, 1949, 1963, 2011)
Copa America 2011 : Runners-up

EXPECTED LINE UP : (4-4-2 diamond): Justo Villar; Ivan Piris, Paulo da Silva, Pablo Aguillar, Miguel Samudio; Victor Caceres, Nestor Ortigoza, Osmar Molinas, Osvaldo Martinez; Lucas Barrios, Roque Santa Cruz


JAMAICA : The Reggae Boyz have been invited to the Copa America tournament for the first time, an important accomplishment for the Caribbean side. Considered the tournament's Cinderella, Jamaica will look to surprise South American teams given the little experience CONMEBOL teams have against the Jamaican squad. Coach Winfried Schäfer, who won the African Nations Cup with Cameroon in 2002, has his work cut out for him however, playing against Argentina and defending champions Uruguay. JAMAICA IS THE INVITEE TEAM IN THIS EDITION WITH MEXICO.

Players to watch : Rodolph Austin, Darren Mattocks

EXPECTED LINE UP : (4-4-1-1): Duwayne Kerr; Adrian Mariappa, Jermaine Taylor, Wes Morgan, Kemar Lawrence; Garath McCleary, Je-Vaughn Watson, Rodolph Austin, Jobi McAnuff; Joel Grant; Darren Mattocks

Colombia Expected Eleven: Ospina; Zuniga, Zapata, Murillo, Armero, Cuadrado, Sanchez, Valencia, Rodriguez, Martinez, Bacca


BRAZIL : 10.06.2015: ADHIRAJ DUTTA :: Still considered one of the best football teams in the world – winning more World Cups than any other country – Brazil has called some of its best players, including Barcelona's star Neymar Jr., and Paris Saint-Germain defender Thiago Silva. After a mixed performance during last year's World Cup, Brazil dropped to the 5th spot on the FIFA ranking.

The squad brought back former captain and coach Dunga, who will face difficulties as many of the players called for the tournament have suffered injuries including Real Madrid defender Marcelo, VfL Wolfsburg's midfielder Luiz Gustavo and Chelsea's offensive midfielder Oscar. Despite the injuries, the Brazil side is deep in talent and should advance in the tournament if their backfield holds and their offensive players contribute to share the burden with Neymar. Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho is set to make his major tournament debut, while fellow youngsters Felipe Anderson (22, Lazio), Roberto Firmino (23, Hoffenheim), Fred (22, Shakhtar Donetsk), Casemiro (23, Porto) and Douglas Costa (24, Shakhtar Donetsk) have been brought in to replace the likes of Oscar, Ramires, Paulinho and Luiz Gustavo.

Best Copa America finish: Champions – 1919, 1922, 1949, 1989, 1997, 1999, 2004, 2007
PERFORMANCE IN 2011 : Eighth
COACH : Dunga
Star man: Neymar - The 23-year-old has been named Brazil captain for the summer, and it's in no way a surprise as he’s simultaneously the side’s most reliable player (43 goals in 62 caps at the age of 23) and ever-present mainstay (of Robinho’s 96 caps, 16 have been won since the 2010 World Cup).

KEY PLAYERS : NEYMAR-Barcelona(Spa)/ JEFFERSON - Botafogo (BRA)/ DANILO-Porto (Por)/ MIRANDA-Atletico Madrid (Spa)/ Roberto FIRMINO - Hoffenheim (Ger)


EXPECTED LINE UP : (4-4-2): Jefferson; Marcelo, João Miranda, David Luiz, Danilo; Everton Ribeiro, Luiz Gustavo, Elias, Willian, Neymar, Roberto Firmino.

COLOMBIA : After a surprising performance during the last World Cup, Colombia is eager to show the soccer world that it deserves its 4th place FIFA ranking by winning its second Copa America. The squad, coached by Argentine Jose Pekerman, will feature a potent attack including Real Madrid star James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao, who is looking to redeem himself after a disappointing season at Manchester United. Striker Carlos Baca, who plays for Sevilla and prolific Porto forward Jackson Martinez, will also join Falcao and Rodriguez in the Los Cafeteros offense. Colombia’s goal scoring abilities should propel the side beyond the first round, at least.

Best Copa America finish: Champions – 2001
Manager: Jose Pekerman
Star man: James Rodriguez — Like Neymar, Rodriguez 23. Only this time around. A season of experience in Carlo Ancelotti's Real Madrid first team has seen James mature into one of the greatest attacking midfielders on the planet.


EXPECTED LINE UP : (4-3-3): David Ospina; Juan Zuniga, Jeison Murillo, Cristian Zapata, Pablo Armero; James Rodríguez, Abel Aguilar, Fredy Guarín; Carlos Bacca, Radamel Falcao, Juan Cuadrado.

PERU : Despite not playing in a World Cup since 1982, Peru's level has grown during recent years. In the 2011 Copa America, Peru came third after an impressive offensive performance. New coach Ricardo Gareca has called all of Peru's major stars including veteran Bayern Munich striker Claudio Pizarro, Schalke star Jefferson Farfan, Flamengo (Brazil) forward Paolo Guerrero and Fiorentina's Juan Manuel Vargas. It is the first time in which Gareca's leadership will be tested in a competitive level, but Los Incas will have a tough time advancing from a group that includes Colombia and Brazil.

Best Copa America finish: Champions – 1939, 1975
Manager: Ricardo Gareca
Star man: Paolo Guerrero — The 31-year-old forward of Brazilian side Corinthians and Carlos Zambrano - the 25 years old of Bundesliga side Schalke, has established himself as a regular in the Bundesliga.

EXPECTED LINE UP :(4-2-3-1): Pedro Gallese; Yoshimar Yotun, Christian Ramos, Carlos Zambrano, Luis Advíncula; Josepmir Ballon, Carlos Ascues; Juan Manuel Vargas, Andre Carrillo, Jefferson Farfan; Paolo Guerrero.

VENEZUELA : Until recently Venezuela has never been viewed as a football nation. Ever since hosting the 2007 Copa America, the country’s soccer program has improved dramatically, thanks in part to investments made in infrastructure made by the Venezuelan government. In the 2011 Copa America, dark horse Venezuela advanced to the semi-finals for the first time in their history, finishing fouth in the tournament.

This time around the Vinotinto will look to repeat their strong performance, but their stars including Zenit St. Petersburg striker Salomon Rondon and Rayo Vallecano's Miku will have to be at their best if they want to move past Colombia and Brazil. ?Given their group, the odds to make it out of the first round are not in Venezuela’s favour.

Best Copa America finish: 4th place – 2011
Manager: Noel Sanvicente
Star man: Salomon Rondon — The 25-year-old bagged 20 goals in his first full season at Zenit St. Petersburg

EXPECTED LINE Up : (4-2-3-1): Dani Hernández; Gabriel Cichero, Fernando Amorebieta, Oswaldo Vizcarrondo, Roberto Rosales; Franklin Lucena, Tomás Rincon; Josef Martínez, Juan Arango, Cesar Gonzalez; Salomón Rondón.

MESSI'S PERFORMANCE IN COPA AMERICA 2007 and 2011
==============
13.06.2015: Messi has had an incredible season for Barcelona, helping his club to win the Champions League, La Liga and Copa Del Rey treble with 58 goals in 57 appearances. The Argentine striker is looking to help his country win Copa America for the first time since 1993.

Messi played on Copa America on two occasions, in 2007 when the tournament was held in Venezuela and in Argentina in 2011. Both tournaments were unsuccessful for the Blue-Whites.

Year    Goals	Assists	Matches	Place
2007	2	1	6	Runners-up
2011	0	3	4	Quarter-Finals


in 2007 Copa America which held in Venezuela Messi was elected young player of the tournament at the age of 20. In the first game, he assisted Harnan Crespo to win against USA over 4-1 margin. In the second match against Colombia he was fouled in the box and Crespo went on to convert the penalty and tie the game to 1-1 and finally Argentina win the gane 4-2. In the third group match against Paraguay, Messi had another assist to Javier Mascherano as Argentina won 1-0 to reach in the Qr Final.

In the quarte rfinals Argentina easily defeated Peru by 4-0 and Messi scored the second goal in the game. In the Semi Final against Mexico Argentina won 3-0 where Messi scord the 2nd goal for the team. But in the Final against arch rival Brazil, Messsi's Argentina lost 0-3. Overall Messi scored 2 goals in that Copa America Tournament.

In 2011, Argentina hosted the Copa America and all eyes were on Messi. Messi was officially voted the best player in the world for the first time in his career, he won FIFA Ballon d’Or in 2010 and had a stellar performance in Champions League, scoring 12 goals in that competition. Barcelona won their third title in six years.

However, he had a very bad, goalless tournament, although he finished as a joint top assistant with three assists. Argentina lost in quarterfinals against Uruguay (5-4 in the penalty shoot-out). Messi converted the first penalty for Argentina, but that wasn’t enough for the hosts to go through in Semi final.

ADHIRAJ DUTTA : Having survived Uruguay in the Copa America quarter-finals, Chile will be looking to move one step closer to winning their first ever title at the major tournament with a victory over Peru on Tuesday morning.

Chile did remarkably well to reach the World Cup knockout stages last summer and, as a result, coach Jorge Sampaoli managed to keep his job. La Roja are now on a quest to win their first ever Copa America title and it seems as if they have never been closer to meeting their goal. The Chileans play in front of home fans and they have been producing very good performances at the 2015 Copa America so far.

Jorge Sampaoli’s team, though, defeated nine-man Uruguay in the quarter-finals, but they do not face a difficult task in Tuesday’s encounter against Peru. Chile will surely adopt an attack-minded approach against Peru.. A man to watch in the home side will be Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez, but Arturo Vidal will also pose a big threat for Peru defenders in the Copa America semi-final. Gonzalo Jara misses the match through suspension, but Jorge Sampaoli has no injury concerns ahead of the Peru game. Eduardo Vargas is likely to keep his place up front.

Peru suffered a 2-1 defeat to Brazil in the opening match of their Copa America campaign, but they have been producing scintillating displays ever since. Thanks to a goalless draw against Colombia in their final group game the Peruvians set up a meeting with Bolivia in the quarter-finals of the tournament and el Verde did not prove to be a big catch for la Albirroja.

Ricardo Gareca’s men are brimming with confidence ahead of Tuesday’s encounter against Chile, but the match against the hosts will be anything but a walk in the park for Jefferson Farfan and Co. Jose Paolo Guerrero scored a hat-trick in the 3-1 win over Bolivia and the former Bayern Munich attacker is widely expected to lead the attack for Ricardo Gareca’s team. Nonetheless, Chile outclassed Peru in their last meeting (3-0) and, taking everything into account, it should be a comfortable victory for the hosts.

Ricardo Gareca is unlikely to make too many changes to the team that faced Bolivia, but Claudio Pizarro is widely expected to drop to the bench. Andre Carrillo is pushing for a start.

ADHIRAJ DUTTA : Argentina started their Copa America journey against Paraguay with a 2-2 draw. Sergio Aguero scored the first one, and Messi followed with a penalty. In their next match they played against Uruguay and defeated them with a stunner by Aguero. The last group match against Jamaica, Argentina won with a 1-0 result, thanks to Higuain’s early goal.

Moving on to the Copa America quarter-final Argentina faced Colombia. A very competitive and high voltage match got into a penalty shootout when both the teams failed to score even after extra time. Finaly a Carlos Tevez winner in the penalities won Argentina a place in Copa America 2015 semi final, up against Paraguay once again.

Meetings: 16
Argentina won: 10
Paraguay won: 2

Paraguay started their journey against Argentina with the late goal draw at 90th minute. They won against Jamaica with a 1-0 score and got a draw against Uruguay with a 1-1 score. Having qualified as the group runner up they had to face Brazil in the quarters, and they also managed to move to semi final due to a penalty shoot-out win against the famous Selecao.

LAST 5 RESULTS betweeen the two

10.09.2009 World Cup Qualification Paraguay (1-0) Argentina

It is worth notifying that both countries play a style of football opposite to each other. While Argentina is playing short-passes all around the field with a sublime lead on ball posession, Paraguay is tending to have long ball attacks and counter attacks. Argentina generally is relying on grounders and grass-cutters mainly from inside of the box while Paraguay is lethal on cross and headers and long rangers.

Argentina is too much dependent on their forwards where as Paraguay is playing a team game all around. Argentina will try to end up the match as soon as possible with numerous goal leads while Paraguay have the nerve of a serial killer as they can come back from any point of the match. Argentine defence is looking sloth and less confident and defeating Brazil in their last match Paraguay would be on the epitome of confidence. Argentina produces some mesmerising situational movements and Paraguay knows how to destroy opponents in dead ball situations.

While Paraguay has a fully fit squad, Argentina has injury concerns over Fernando Gago, who suffered a muscle strain in training, and fellow midfielder Lucas Biglia (knee).

ADHIRAJ DUTTA : This will be the 2nd time that Host Chile will face Argentina in the Final of Copa America after 1955. on 30th March 1955, the Copa America host Chile lost 0-1 to Argentina through a 59th minute score of Rodolfo Micheli. From 1920 to 2015, 37 times playing Chile host 7 times the Copa America but unable to win the title as only one time they stood 2nd place while 40 times playing Argentina host 9 times Copa where they won the title 6 times. After 1993 Argentina have a chance to win the Messi leaded Copa America in 2015 on the other hand Chile who stood 2nd in 1987 and got 3rd place as a host nation in 1991 also have a chance to win their 1st ever Copa.

Chile are one win away from their first Copa America success and face 2015 favourites Argentina in Saturday's final in Santiago. The hosts might not have as much talent across the board as their South American neighbours, but they will hope that a fervent home crowd can help them to victory.

Not only are La Roja chasing a first Copa title, they have also never won a major international tournament in their history. They have come close, though. They have hosted the World Cup and Copa America on seven occasions and never not reached the semi-finals on their own turf. The Chileans have also been runners-up at the Copa on four occasions, the last of which came in 1987 when they fell to Uruguay in the final. Chile are this year's top scorers with 13 goals in five games and they possess the top marksman in Eduardo Vargas, who has netted four times, including a match-winning brace in the semi-final. The forward, who was on loan at Queens Park Rangers last season, sealed the win for Chile against Peru with a dipping long-range effort in the 64th minute. He has clearly been Chile's best player outperforming star players like Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal. Chile had finished top of Group B with two wins and a draw and edged out defending champions Uruguay in the quarter-finals.

Like Chile, Argentina drew one game in the group stage to finish top of Group B, setting up a quarter-final with Colombia. After a goalless 120 minutes, La Albiceleste ousted Los Cafeteros 5-4 on penalties to book a last-four match with surprise package Paraguay, who had toppled Brazil on penalties in the quarters. Paraguay couldn't match the highest-ranked team at the Copa as Argentina romped to a 6-1 triumph, with Angel di Maria netting two as Lionel Messi, who has one goal in the tournament, went scoreless. La Albiceleste have won the Copa 14 times and victory on Saturday would see them match Uruguay as the competition's most successful ever country.

Argentina's record in Copas hosted in Chile is quite superb - they have never failed to reach the final, winning it four times and finishing as runner-up on two occasions. They are, however, without a major competition win since the 1993 Copa in Ecuador, losing last year's World Cup final to Germany in extra time.
