Argentina vs. Uruguay, Predictions & Picks

The action of Group B of the Copa America 2021 continues this Friday, June 18, 2021, with one of the best South American duels on Brazilian soil. Argentina and Uruguay face each other, which will be the second match for the Argentine team and the debut in this Copa America for the Uruguay team. The match will be played at the National Stadium of Brasilia.

How do Argentina and Uruguay arrive?

The Uruguayan team comes to this Copa America with some recent challenging matches during the qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World CupUruguay has only managed to win 1 match of its last 5, which accumulates 2 draws and 2 defeats. In the previous FIFA date, the Uruguayan team was well below its level, showing a playing side that Master Tavares doesn’t like. In neither of the two games, Uruguay scored goals, and they ended up drawing both games, the first at home against the Paraguayan team and the second as a visitor against the Venezuelan team.

What is true is that Maestro Tavares knows in detail the football deployed by Argentina and will use all available resources to try to stop Messi.

For its part, the Argentine team came to this Copa America with the firm conviction of showing that they do not depend solely on Messi to obtain good results. Currently, Argentina is in second place in the general classification table of the South American qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. In its first match against Chile, the Argentine team began overwhelmingly, with many attacks that ended with shots on goal, but that Claudio Bravo repelled them calmly. However, in the 33rd minute of the first half, after a foul against the Argentine team, Lionel Messi scored a goal from a free-kick, which gave Argentina an additional boost to continue attacking Chile.

But this was not enough; the Argentine team could not endure a great start to the second half by Chile and ended up conceding a goal from Eduardo Vargas to end the match with a 1-1 tie on the scoreboard.

Betting line for Argentina vs. Uruguay – Copa America 2021.

It will be a very complex game, one filled with many strategies, but mainly by the incredible Master Tavares and Uruguay. The Argentine team continues to show a very great Messi-Dependence, and that’s if the 10th is not on its best day, or they are not on the field, the team seems to be lost and does not know what to do. Uruguay has an obvious strategy, and that’s to defend Leo. With Uruguay, we’ve noticed that they haven’t scored many goals in their recent games. They will be focused on improving this before their match against Argentina. We believe that the game could be for either team, but, in this case, we opted for Messi’s Argentina as the winner of this match.
