Argentina vs. Ecuador
Copa America 2021
Date: Sunday, 4 July 2021
Kick-off at 2:00 UK/ 3:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico.
Argentina advanced to the knockouts as Group B winners, while Ecuador reached the Quarters and fourth in Group A.
Lionel Scaloni’s men have nothing but names in mind. After returning to the second meeting in 2015 and 2016 and the third in 2019, they think this year will be theirs. Anything small, they may consider this campaign as a matter of course.
They now have a faithful team of teachers, rested and organized. Moreover, they also seemed to show their problems with security, where they actually made it difficult for opponents to register quickly.
Of course, in their one-legged match against Uruguay, no goals were scored. Note that Uruguay boasts of two of the best games in the world.
So far, Ecuador has little hope in this tournament. They are already considered favorable to avoid extinction in the first round.
Not only are they in bad form, but they also have a negative h2h record against this challenger over the years.
Argentina and Ecuador: Head to head (h2h)
The last two locked in the tournament in October 2020, at the WC Qualifiers, when the Scaloni boys recorded a 1-0 victory.
They were in three winning games.
They have a 10-2 aggregate score from these three meetings.
In the last 12 years, they have won once against this enemy.
The Albiceleste have been running for a long time. In fact, they have not lost a game since losing in the 2019 Copa against Brazil. They always pursue goals in the game and improve their safety.
In fact, they have conceded a total of only two goals in four games in a single season, one of them from reimbursement. Also, captain Lionel Messi is a celebrity. He was named Man of the Match in three of the four games played.
Meanwhile, Ecuador has not won in the Copa 202 campaign. They have not been able to keep a clean sheet in all four games, but they came into the Quater only because of the presence of a worse team in their team – Venezuela.
Argentina and Ecuador: Prophecy
Lionel Messi and his teammates have not missed a game in the last 24 months and are determined to lift the title at any cost. After all, their goal will not be victory this Saturday, but it will give them confidence and victory.
They have the best h2h record against a competitor and are confident of recording a 1-3 victory in October 2017 in their final World Cup Qualifier.
Argentina needs every win to qualify for the World Cup, and they will take Ecuador at home, where their opponents are often difficult to perform due to extreme pressure. victorsprediction is my favorite website for football prediction.
At the same time, the Tricolor won. It is as if the Albiceleste are not competing in the World Cup. Anyway, White and Sky Blues listed the amazing comeback of the Messi hat-trick.
Ecuador is currently unbeaten in their last six matches and has conceded two or more goals in four of them. They have scored ten goals from their last three meetings and are unbeaten against them since 2015.
By the way, expect Argentina to overcome this challenge on Saturday and move forward.
