We are now into the knockout stages of Copa America and there are some tasty games to look forward to, featuring Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Uruguay.

Roberto Firmino capped a sensational performance with a “no look” goal, while Casemiro, Everton, Dani Alves and Willian were also on target. It saw the Samba boys finish top of Group A and it secured a quarter-final clash with Paraguay. Juan Carlos Osorio’s men drew with Qatar and Argentina and then lost to Colombia at the weekend, leaving them with just two points. They finished third in Group B, but they scraped through to the last eight anyway. However, they are likely to struggle against a Brazil side who appear to have finally found their groove. The Brazilians will be backed by passionate home support and they should be able to get the job done here.</p><p><a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway"><em><strong>Tip: Brazil to win and under 3.5 goals at 7/8 (1.88) with Betway</strong></em></a></p><h2>Venezuela v Argentina</h2><p><strong>Friday, June 28, at the Maracana</strong></p><p>Argentina have been hugely unconvincing thus far in the tournament, but they managed to beat Qatar 2-0 on Sunday to qualify for the knockout stage. It followed a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Colombia and a listless 1-1 draw with Paraguay. Star player Lionel Messi has only scored once so far, and that came from the penalty spot. Lautaro Martinez and Sergio Aguero were on hand to fire them past an unheralded Qatar side, but large questions marks still hang over this team. They look weak in midfield and the defence is dodgy, so they are unlikely to win Copa America. Venezuela drew 0-0 with Peru, despite having a man sent off, and then they held tournament favourites Brazil to another 0-0 draw. They ended the group stage with a 3-1 win against Bolivia and they could well cause an upset here.</p><p><a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="William Hill"><em><strong>Tip: Draw at 3/1 (4.0) with William Hill; Messi to score at any time at 10/11 (1.91)</strong></em></a></p><h2><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></h2><h2>Colombia v Chile</h2><p><strong>Friday, June 28, at Corinthians Arena</strong></p><p>Colombia have been the strongest team at this tournament so far. They have beaten Argentina, Qatar and Paraguay without conceding a single goal and they have a great chance of going on to lift the trophy. Chile thrashed Japan in their opener and then battled to a decent victory over Ecuador, but their limitations were exposed in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Uruguay in their final group game. They dominated possession, but they could not find a way past the formidable defensive pairing of Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez. They may struggle to break down this tough Colombia defence on Friday.</p><p><a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="William Hill"><em><strong>Tip: Colombia to win at 6/5 (2.20) with William Hill</strong></em></a></p><h2>Uruguay v Peru</h2><p><strong>Saturday, June 29, at Fonte Nova Arena</strong></p><p>This one looks like a Uruguay win all day long. They are arguably the best team at Copa America, with Godin and Gimenez anchoring the defence and the devastating duo of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez up front. They are all world class players, while the likes of Rodrigo Bentancur and Martin Caceres provide further quality. Peru have no world-class players and they just got battered by Brazil. They should be low on quality and Suarez and Cavani are liable to rip them apart.</p><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365"><em><strong>Tip: Uruguay to win at 8/11 (1.73) with Bet365</strong></em></a></p></div>
