Copa America Group C preview
A look at the teams in Group C and their projected order of finish:
The group begins with a pair of doubleheaders, first in San Juan and then in Mendoza. Uruguay should beat Peru in the opener, while the second game of that first day looks key. If Chile beat Mexico then it should be confident of going through with Uruguay while Mexico and Peru battle it out to be one of the two third-placed teams who make it through to the quarterfinal. Peru meets Mexico in the first game of the second doubleheader, while the second game that day sees Uruguay meet Chile, which should be the game that determines first and second in the group. The reward for winning Group C is a meeting with whoever finishes second in the Brazil group -- probably Paraguay -- while second faces second from group A -- in theory Colombia; if third place qualifies it will probably have to meet Argentina or Brazil in the quarterfinal: the rewards are clear.
