What started with 224 clubs representing every division in Argentina football has now been whittled down to just 14 clubs, as the 2013 Copa Argentina has reached the Round of 16 (with two clubs already qualified for the quarterfinals).

The tournament still features several of Argentina's strongest teams this season and most famous clubs—though River Plate was eliminated last round—with defending champions Boca Juniors and Newell's Old Boys still gunning for the cup.

Let's take a look at the remaining teams, bracket and upcoming fixtures.

 

Remaining Teams

Primera Division: Boca Juniors, Independiente, San Lorenzo, Newell's Old Boys, Estudiantes La Plata, Arsenal de Sarandí, Atletico Rafaela, All Boys, Quilmes and Godoy Cruz

Quarterfinals 

Two teams have reached the Round of 8, Godoy Cruz and Gimnasia y Esgrima. Godoy Cruz advanced by beating Olimpo, 3-2, while Gimnasia y Esgrima defeated Tristan Suarez on penalty kicks, 4-3, after the game finished scoreless in regulation. 

 

Predictions

I like Newell's Old Boys to win this tournament. The club has been the top overall Argentine side, finishing second in the first half of the season, and currently sits atop the table in the second half. With a very winnable game against Talleres de Cordoba next on the docket, Newell's should be moving on to the quarterfinals. 

But don't count out Boca Juniors. The famous club won this competition last season and has saved its best football for another tournament this year, the Copa Libertadores, where it has reached the quarterfinals. Boca Juniors are always a dangerous tournament team and could repeat as cup winners in the Copa Argentina. 

San Lorenzo and Arsenal de Sarandi have also been playing very well in the second half of the season, standing fourth and fifth on the Primera Division table, so they could make some noise as well.

In the end, however, Newell's—which faces Boca Juniors in the Copa Libertadores, by the way—looks too strong this season to be denied a win at the Copa Argentina.
