Last night, the Copa America Centenario kicked off with Colombia defeating the US 2-0 to move into the top spot in Group A.

The tournament truly gets underway today with three matches covering Groups A and B. One of the tournament's favorites, Brazil, features in your nightcap.


Who: Brazil v. Ecuador

When: Saturday, June 4 at 10:00pm

Available TV: FS1, Univision, Univision Deportes

Available Streaming: Fox Sports GO, Univision Deportes, fuboTV (free trial)

What to Watch For:

Who will score the goals for Brazil?

Without their talisman Neymar, who is taking this tournament off to focus on the Olympics in Rio in August, who will be the scoring threat for Brazil? Hulk has not been intimidating to opposing defenses and someone is going to have to step up.

Predictions

Jason:

Even with their injury issues and poor forward play, Brazil has too much for Ecuador to overcome. 2-1 to the Brazilians.

Seamus:

No Neymar, no Costa, no Kaka, no problem. Brazil puts its depth on full display, winning big, 3-0.


Who: Costa Rica v. Paraguay

When: Saturday, June 4 at 5:00pm

Available TV: FOX, Univision, Univision Deportes

Available Streaming: Fox Sports GO, Univision Deportes, fuboTV (free trial)

What to Watch For:

How will the loss of Keylor Navas affect Costa Rica?

Navas led Costa Rica to the 2014 World Cup quarterfinals, shocking the world and earning a transfer to Real Madrid in the process. He is out of the tournament with an Achilles injury that has been bothering him all season. In his place, 34 year old Alajuelense goalkeeper Patrick Pemberton will marshal the defense. Pemberton is a steady veteran but has not played with the national team in games of this magnitude.

Predictions:

Jason:

Paraguay will likely look at this game as their best opportunity for a win and will go forward in search of goals. Costa Rica will defend strongly to protect Pemberton and roll the dice on Tuesday against the US. I think both teams will cancel each other out and we'll end up with a 1-1 draw.

Seamus:

Costa Rica enter tonight's match in tremendous form winning seven of their last 10 matches, but Paraguay have gone undefeated in the previous two group stages of Copa America. They take all three points with a 2-1 victory, setting up a must win match in Chicago Tuesday for both Costa Rica and the U.S.


Who: Haiti vs. Peru

When: Saturday, June 4 at 7:30pm

Available TV: FS2, Univision, Univision Depotes

Available Streaming: Fox Sports GO, Univision Depotes, fuboTV (free trial)

What to Watch For:

Was Peru's 3rd Place finish last summer for real?

Peru surprised everyone with a run to the semifinals of last summer's Copa America. Even though attacking soccer is not their forte, they will know that they have to beat Haiti to have any chances of escaping the group stage.

Predictions:

Jason:

Haiti did well at last summer's Gold Cup, but have not replicated that during the World Cup qualifiers. Peru has more experience in these types of situations and will use it to roll to a 2-0 win.

Seamus:

Peru gets an easy win, but Hati manages to get on the board. 3-1 in favor of Peru.
