Copa America 2021 Schedule: Updated Standings and Tables

Argentina and Chile were the first teams to book their berth in the Copa America quarterfinals, with defending champion Brazil expected to follow suit later this week.

A goal from Alejandro Gomez was enough for Argentina to overcome Paraguay on Monday night and secure a second consecutive win after beating Uruguay on Friday by the same scoreline.

The result means the Albiceleste now tops Group A with seven points from five games and is mathematically through to the quarterfinals regardless of the outcome of the game against Bolivia next Monday. Two points adrift of Argentina, Chile has also punched its ticket to the quarterfinals after drawing 1-1 with Uruguay on Monday afternoon.

Eduardo Vargas notched up the 14th Copa America goal of his career—three short of the all-time record jointly held by former Argentina striker Norberto Mendez and former Brazil forward Zizinho—opening the scoring for La Roja, before an Arturo Vidal own goal levelled the score. The result leaves Chile on five points after three games, while Paraguay and Uruguay have three and one point, respectively, having played one fewer game. Bolivia has also played just two games and is bottom of Group A with no points.

In Group B, meanwhile, Brazil sat out the third round of games, but the hosts remain on the verge of qualification after back-to-back wins in their first two outings. The Seleção is two points ahead of Colombia, its next opponents on Wednesday, which has played a game more and lost 2-1 to Peru on Monday night.

Barcelona defender Yerry Mina's own goal halfway through the second half proved the difference, after Miguel Borja's penalty kick had cancelled out Sergio Pena's opener for Peru. The win leaves the 2019 Copa America runner-up on three points after two games, with Venezuela and Ecuador one and two points further adrift, respectively.

Like Colombia, Venezuela has played three games and needed an injury time equalizer from Ronald Hernandez to draw 2-2 against Ecuador on Sunday night. Playing in its second game of the tournament, Ecuador took the lead through Ayrton Preciado late in the first half, before Edson Castillo levelled for Venezuela shortly after the restart.

A goal from Gonzalo Plata 20 minutes from time looked to have earned Ecuador all three points, only for Hernandez to snatch a point late on.

Ecuador takes on Peru on Wednesday before facing Brazil on Sunday, when Venezuela plays Peru.

Here's a roundup of the state of play and of the upcoming games.
