Here are my predictions for the 42nd edition of Copa America (in parentheses is their world ranking):

Pool Play

Group A- The winner of this group will be won by Uruguay (30th) and in a suprising 2nd place finish will be the host team, Venezuela (70th). Third place will be won by Bolivia (92nd) meaning Peru (64th) will take last in the group.

Group B- This group will be won easily by Brazil (3rd) and second will be taken by Mexico (26th). Equador (44th) will come in 3rd followed by Chile (53rd) in 4th.

Group C- In the 3rd group, the U.S. (16th) will flounder once again against fairly tough competition taking 3rd in the group. Taking 1st will be a tough Argentinian squad (5th) followed by Columbia (31st) in second. In last will be Paraguay (37th).

Elimination Round

Quarterfinals- 

Uruguay over Equador

Mexico over U.S.

Brazil over Columbia

Argentina over Venezuela

Semifinals-

Uruguay over Mexico

Brazil over Argentina

Finals-

Brazil over Uruguay
