All you need to know about Copa America 2024 Group A, including standings, fixtures, results and predictions as Argentina, Peru, Chile and Canada battle for a knockout place.

COPA AMERICA GROUP A PREDICTION

Argentina have not suffered a group-stage exit at the Copa America since 1983, and it would be a major shock if they do not progress to the knockout rounds in the USA.

With Argentina boasting an array of world-class talent, they should top Group A with relative ease, leaving it up to the remaining three teams to fight over a second place.

There is little to choose between Peru, Canada and Chile, but we think that the latter may do enough to reach the knockout stage for a seventh consecutive Copa America.

Canada may fall just short in their maiden Copa America appearance, while we believe that Peru may prop up the standings and crash out of the group stage for the first time since 1995.
