Copa America 2019: Where to Watch Quarter-Finals, Live Stream, Latest Odds, TV Schedule

The Copa America comes to a boil this week as the formalities of the group phase have been exhausted and the knockout stages kick off Thursday.

There are few certainties as the tournament enters its quarter-finals, chief among them the fact Brazil and Argentina will not meet in the final, after the Albiceleste finished second in Group B.

The hosts haven't been entirely convincing but arrive at the knockout stage as Group A winners on the back of a thumping 5-0 over Peru. Argentina, meanwhile, needed a 2-0 win over Qatar in the final game of Group B to qualify after losing to Colombia and drawing against Paraguay.

The two-time World Cup winners have shown little to indicate a 26-year wait for a Copa America title could come to an end this month, but it is never wise to bet against Lionel Messi.

Elsewhere, Colombia won all its three group games without conceding a goal, reasserting its status as the tournament dark horse, while Uruguay and Chile battled it out for supremacy in Group C and have reasons for optimism and worry in equal measure.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the quarter-finals.
