Watch Argentina vs Ecuador Live Stream

Copa América quarterfinal, with Argentina taking on Ecuador on Sunday the 4th of July, 2021, at Estádio Olímpico Pedro Ludovico Teixeira, in Goiânia.

Argentina drew 1-1 with Chile on their debut in the tournament (a game in which they deserved better, as they were the better team on the pitch), improved defensively after that, beat Uruguay 1-0, repeated the same score against Paraguay, before finishing things off in the group stage with a 4-1 over Bolivia. The game was at 3-0 at halftime, Argentina never really got threatened. Their current form reads; WWWDD. Coach Lionel Scaloni played a 4-2-3-1 formation against Bolivia

, with Agüero as number 9 and three guys behind him, including Messi. Argentina’s number 10 scored twice (once from the penalty spot), with Gómez and Martínez adding the other two goals. Messi had scored against Chile as well, Gómez had netted the winner against Paraguay, while Rodríguez was the only scorer in that 1-0 over Uruguay, early in the group stage.

Ecuador are the only team that qualified for the quarterfinals of this Copa América tournament without winning a single group stage match(!). After losing 0-1 to Ecuador on their debut, they drew 2-2 with Venezuela, again 2-2 with Peru and 1-1 with hots Brazil, taking perfect advantage of the fact that the Brazilians looked rather complacent, as it was the final day of the group stage and they had already secured the top spot in the table. Ecuador’s current form reads;

 DDDLL. Coach Gustavo Alfaro played a 4-4-2 formation against Brazil, with Valencia and Preciado up front. Mena came off the bench in the 17th minute to take the place of injured Caicedo, and was the one who equalized 1-1 in the 53rd minute.

Argentina and Ecuador have met 36 times in the past and as you may be guessing the Argentinians have a seriously favourable record of 21W, 10D and just 5L. On neutral ground, Ecuador have never beaten Argentina, they have 3D and 3L. Last time they faced each other in Copa América was in 2004, in Peru, the Argentinians triumphed 6-1 in the group stage.

A 2-0 victory for Argentina is predicted at full-time.
Date: Sunday, 4th of July, 2021.
