Match Preview

The Argentine national team will face Uruguay in the second match of Group A of the 2021 Copa America at the Estadio Nacional Mane Garrincha, Brasilia, Saturday (19/6/2021) morning IST. 

Group A and Group B of the 2021 Copa America will consist of five teams each. 

On matchday 1 of Group A, the Argentine national team drew 1-1 with Chile. Argentina had taken the lead through captain Lionel Messi's goal, but in the end, had to settle for sharing a point. Meanwhile, in the other Group A party, Paraguay won 3-1 over Bolivia. Uruguay has not had a turn to appear.

Uruguay just dropped in the second matchday, namely against Argentina. In the other party, Chile will face Bolivia.

Seeing their performance, Argentina and Uruguay are both less convincing. Argentina is unbeaten in 14 matches but has been struggling to win recently.

Meanwhile, despite players of the caliber of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, Uruguay has struggled to score goals in their last few matches. In the last three matches in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, the team made by Oscar Tabrez was beaten by Brazil 0-2, then drew 0-0 with Paraguay and Venezuela.

Argentina and Uruguay last met in a friendly in November 2019. In that match, Uruguay twice took the lead through Cavani and Suarez, but Argentina twice equalized through Sergio Aguero and Messi to seal the final score 2-2.

Will the Argentina and Uruguay national teams return to present a fierce match when they meet in Brasilia later?
