rgentina vs Uruguay prediction and preview
Argentina began their Copa America with a disappointing result, settling for a 1-1 draw against Chile. An exquisite free-kick from captain Lionel Messi gave them the lead before Eduardo Vargas pulled level to share the spoils. It could have been more for Chile but Emiliano Martinez saved a crucial Arturo Vidal penalty, ensuring that La Albicleste got a point from their opener. Argentina are expected to mount a serious challenge for the title in what could be Messi’s final Copa America chance and will be desperate to record a win to boost their chances of qualifying in one of the top few spots. Argentina have not won the title since 1993, having lost in the final in four of the last six Copa Americas.
