Argentina vs Ecuador, Copa America 04.07.2021
A place in the last four is in the offing when Argentina and Ecuador go to battle on Sunday in Goiania in the last quarter-finals of the Copa America.
Argentina were in fine form as they topped Group A to reach the knockout stage while Ecuador needed a draw against Brazil to book their quarterfinal berth after finishing fourth in Group B.
This preview will focus on Greatodds free bet prices for this game.
Argentina lived up to expectations as they swept aside their group A opponents with relative ease, topping the group with 10 points from their four games. A 1-1 draw with Chile in their opener seemed to light a fire in their backsides as they went on to record three straight wins in the remaining group games while scoring six goals and conceding just once.
La Albeceleste are on a mission to end a 28-year drought in this competition and their play in the group stages shows a determination that has been lacking in years gone by. This could well be the year to end the long wait.
Ecuador made it to the quarters despite failing to pick up even a single win in the group stage. They lost by a solitary goal to Colombia in the opener before drawing the next three group games including an impressive 1-1 draw with Brazil in the final group match, albeit with the Brazilians fielding a largely second-string side. That point helped them finish in 4th, a point clear of basement side Venezuela.
La Tricolor’s defence has cost them valuable points in the group games as they led in games against Venezuela and Peru but couldn’t hold on. They will have their work cut out against an Argentina attack that is raring to go.

ARGENTINA VS ECUADOR BETTING MATCH PREVIEW AND BETTING TIPS
Although Ecuador have been a hard nut to crack in the tournament, Argentina are a whole new challenge for them. Argentina have grown as a force as the tournament has progressed and are a team on a mission. They are unbeaten in their last 17 matches across all competitions. They have also dominated this head-to-head fixture with four wins in the last 5. We feel they have too many attacking weapons at their disposal and we are backing them to with a -1 handicap here @ 2.20 with Greatodds as our initial betting prediction.
Speaking of attacking weapons, there is none greater than the king himself. Lionel Messi has turned up to play in this tournament and he too is looking for his pound of flesh after years of sustained criticism of his failure to replicate his club form for the country. The Barcelona forward is the top scorer at Copa America with three goals in four matches. We fancy him to continue his scorching run here. Messi to Score Anytime is priced @ 1.95 at Greatodds and we have no hesitation snapping that up for our final shout here.
