Top Copa America 2021 predictions for Monday, June 28
After studying both matchups on Monday, Fornelli has two strong picks, but neither has Argentina as a -700 favorite to win.

In 147 matches for Argentina, Messi has 73 career goals, including the Argentinians' lone goal in the tournament opener against Chile in a 1-1 draw. Messi, who stars for Barcelona in La Liga, scored 38 goals in 47 matches this past season.
Although Bolivia is winless in the tournament, it would love to spring an upset and give Argentina a harder draw in the quarterfinals. Bolivia has been outscored 6-1 in the three previous tournament games. Right midfielder Erwin Mario Saavedra scored the side's only goal in a 3-1 loss to Paraguay on June 14. He has three goals in 27 career games for his country.
