Argentina is set to play in the 2019 Copa America tournament starting this Friday, but they see Brazil as the clear favorite to lift the trophy.

According to Argentina national team footballers Rodrigo De Paul and German Pezzella, Brazil is the clear favorite to win the 2019 Copa America.

The tournament starts in Brazil this Friday, and the players have chosen the local hosts as clear favorites.

But that doesn’t mean they don’t try to fight for it.

“The favorite, for being the host and for the players they have, is Brazil,” said midfielder Rodrigo De Paul to AP News.

“We have the best player in the world, we will try to help [Lionel Messi] so he feels comfortable.”

“But we are aware that Brazil is the favorite,” De Paul commented.

“Not being favorites doesn’t stop us from giving it all in every match,” defender German Pezzella added.

“We have dreams from the first moment.”

Argentina will play in Group B of the Copa America alongside Colombia, Paraguay, and guests Qatar.
