Copa America 2021 has moved into the semifinal stage with Colombia meeting Argentina in the second semifinal. The winner will meet either Peru or Brazil in the final. Argentina is looking to make the final for the first time since 2016. Colombia last made a Copa America final in 2001, the only year they won the competition.

Here the opening lines for the second semifinal, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Opening odds, first semifinal

Colombia vs. Argentina

Colombia: +450
Tie: +250
Argentina: -135

Colombia held Uruguay to a 0-0 scoreline through extra time before ultimately prevailing on penalties. That strategy might not work well against Argentina, especially with Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martinez on the front line. Argentina struggled early against Ecuador, but eventually won comfortably 3-0. Messi is the best player on the pitch and Colombia does not have an answer for him. Expect goals in this one.
