Argentina vs Ecuador  Match Preview And Prediction

Argentina vs EcuadorOur tipsters predict that Argentina will defeat Ecuador in the Copa America 2024 quarterfinal with a strong effort. Pre-tournament favorites Albiceleste played up to the hype as they won all three of their group stage matches without giving up a goal.

Even though Lionel Messi hasn’t scored a goal in the competition yet, a number of other players have risen to the occasion, giving Argentina supporters worldwide plenty to talk about.

With four goals under his belt, Lautaro Martínez stands out among the players on the list. It’s also crucial to remember that he scored in each of the three games, even though he only made one start—that being the last group match against Peru when Messi wasn’t playing.

Conversely, Ecuador showed remarkable resilience following their unexpected loss to Venezuela on the first day of play, as they defeated Jamaica and held Mexico to a goalless draw. Thursday night at Copa America will mark the 17th encounter between Ecuador and Argentina.

With eleven victories and five draws in those contests, the Albiceleste are undefeated. When they played in this competition for the first time in 2021, Messi, Rodrigo de Paul, and Lautaro Martinez all scored goals in a one-sided match.

Argentina vs Ecuador: Betting Analysis

Argentina has an incredible record versus Ecuador at the Copa America, and we anticipate them to win handily. Their overall form is outstanding. Not only that, but no one has been able to overcome their defense in the three group games, even if Lionel Scaloni has used different pairings.

Although Ecuador has a dismal record in this competition—they haven’t advanced past the quarterfinals since 1993—it will be important to note this. With four goals, the Inter Milan striker leads the tournament in scoring.

With those four goals occurring in roughly 120 minutes on the field, he also has an excellent goals per minute ratio. Instead of starting Julian Alvarez, we are banking on Scaloni to start him, and if we support him to score at any point throughout this quarterfinal match, we might hit gold.

Argentina vs Ecuador Expected Lineups

Argentina (4-4-2 formation): Emiliano Martinez, together with Molina, Romero, Lisandro Martinez, Tagliafico, Énzo Fernandez, Nicolas Gonzalez, Messi, Mac Allister, and Tagliafico.

Ecuador (4-2-3-1 Formation): Hincapie, Pacho, Torres, and Dominguez Caicedo – Preciado, Sarmiento, Paez, Yeboah, Valencia; Franco.
