Argentina vs Ecuador: Predictions and Betting Tips
The Argentines finished top of their group after three wins and a draw. They scored seven goals and conceded two.
For some players like Lionel Messi, Ángel Di María or Sergio Agüero, who have already played two Copa America finals and lost in both, it could be their last time playing in this tournament, so the Argentines will be hoping that these legends of their football, especially Lionel Messi, will win this tournament before retiring from the national team.
Ecuador reached the quarter-finals after finishing fourth in Group B, after three draws and one defeat. They were the only team to reach this round without winning a match.
The Ecuadorians are aware that they are probably the weakest of all the remaining teams, and the fact that they have never won this tournament and have not even been runners-up may benefit them as there is no pressure or expectation on them to win.
- 17 consecutive matches without losing for Argentina, comprising ten wins and seven draws
- Three consecutive wins for Argentina
- Six consecutive matches without winning for Ecuador, three draws and three losses
- Ecuador have conceded at least one goal in all of their last six matches
Argentina vs Ecuador Predictions
We see Argentina as clear favourites for this match. They play very well as a team and, above all, they have Lionel Messi, who has the ability to win matches even when the rest of his team are faltering. In addition, Ecuador are on a long streak of matches with no wins.
We think it will be a low-scoring game, as, in a knock-out match of this type, we expect Ecuador to come out defensively and wait for opportunities to counter-attack. There may, however, be few chances.
