Argentina v Ecuador betting tips – Albiceleste big favourites

It’s definitely possible that we’ll see Argentina clash with Brazil when it comes to the 2021 Copa America final on 10 July, with the Estádio do Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro hosting this grand finale, although the former have to navigate their way past Ecuador before a potentially tricky semi-final clash against either Uruguay or Colombia.

It’s easy to see why Argentina are big betting favourites to overcome the Ecuadorians when the teams clash at the Estádio Olímpico Pedro Ludovico in Goiânia, with Lionel Messi spearheading the attack and he was on the scoresheet during a 1-1 draw with Chile.

Can Messi Mastermind a Copa America Success?

Lionel Messi was also able to plunder a brace during his country’s group stage clash against Bolivia, with this being the final encounter although it might have served as a good warm-up before this slightly tougher ordeal, with the Barcelona maestro having been the difference against Ecuador in a World Cup qualifier.

Argentina are trading at a best price 1/2 to win the game and they are far from a one-man team, with Barcelona-bound Sergio Aguero set to take his place alongside Messi, while Angel Di Maria is potentially going to engineer some goals from a wide position.

La Albiceleste have not been full of goals during the group stage and that 4-1 win over Bolivia has to be taken on account of the latter already being out of the competition, with previous games just yielding one goal per game.

How Can Ecuador Stop Argentina?

Although Ecuador finished fourth in their Copa America qualifying group, they are not a team to be underestimated and Gustavo Alfaro’s side will relish the chance to clash with one of the tournament favourites as underdogs, with the team having enjoyed some eye-catching wins during World Cup qualifying.

Indeed, La Tri have won three and lost three of their six matches played in the CONMEBOL section, with fourteen goals scored and ten conceded which means that an average of four have hit the net along the way for each match.

Some Copa America betting sites offer 15/2 about Ecuador pulling off a shock and they might have to consider adopting an attack-minded approach rather than experience death by a thousand cuts at the hands of an Argentina side who could potentially have 120 minutes to find a way through.

What Are the Best Bets for Argentina v Ecuador?

We’re going to swerve the prospect of betting on Argentina at such a short price, with La Albiceleste potentially a better option on the win to nil market considering that we should expect them to be on the ball for large parts of the game.

We have seen Lionel Messi prove to be the match winner on multiple occasions when it comes to international football and it wouldn’t be a daft bet to gamble on the Barcelona forward to score the only goal of the game on the scorecast betting market considering that Scaloni will be looking for his captain to provide an edge.

A 1-0 win in favour of the Argentineans can be punted at 5/1 and this has already happened in 50% of their Copa America matches thus far, while you might also want to consider Under 2.5 Goals which could be the way that a lot of matches go when it comes to the quarter finals.
