Argentina vs Ecuador Predictions

  • Argentina are unbeaten in their last 17 matches (Won 10, drawn 7).
  • Ecuador have not won any of their last six internationals.
  • Six of Argentina’s last ten wins have been by exactly one goal.

Argentina are strong favourites to overcome Ecuador in the last of the four Copa America quarter-finals to take place on Sunday morning.

Lionel Scaloni’s side have grown as a force during the tournament as they attempt to win their country’s first Copa title in almost 30 years.

La Albiceleste began with an incoherent draw against Chile before getting the better of neighbours Uruguay in a tight game.

They began to hit their stride in the first half of the 1-0 win over Paraguay, although that was an incomplete performance, before finally putting it all together in a 4-1 mauling of Bolivia.

That may not be the ideal barometer for a game like this, though, as Ecuador will be nowhere near as open.

La Tri know they must put men behind the ball and deny Lionel Messi space if they are to have any chance of progression.

Ecuador midfielder Jhegson Mendez perfectly executed such a plan in keeping Brazil’s creative forces quiet in Sunday’s 1-1 draw and will have another prominent role this weekend.

Argentina are likely to be pushed hard in this one, but can still come out on top by no more than a goal.

Rather than back the hosts at a short odds-on price, we prefer to play Ecuador on what could prove to be a generous Asian Handicap of +1.5.

Only four of Argentina’s last ten wins (from 17 games) have been by a margin greater than a goal, which is also why we are plumping for a 2-1 Albiceleste win.
