ARGENTINA VS PERU. Argentina extended their unbeaten sequence to 24 games with a fine 3-0 victory over Uruguay in Buenos Aires on Sunday and Lionel Scaloni’s stars should sweep aside Peru with similar ease at Estadio Monumental Antonio Vespucio Liberti this Friday. La Albiceleste have been terrific all year with six wins and four draws earned in qualifying in addition to their Copa America triumph, though they arguably turned in the best display of their lengthy unbeaten run on Sunday to tear through a vastly experienced and usually solid Uruguay outfit.
COLOMBIA VS ARGENTINA. Argentina should extend their 12 game unbeaten sequence against Colombia in Barranquilla in the early hours of Wednesday morning, though we think Lionel Scaloni’s side may have to settle for a point at Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Melendez. La Albiceleste haven’t tasted defeat since losing 2-0 to Brazil in the 2019 Copa America (W7, D5) and already they look absolute certainties to reach the 2022 finals in Qatar.
Argentina Argentina prepare for this match coming off the back of a 1-1 Copa America drawn match against Chile. It has been all too rare in recent times that Argentina have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, La Albiceleste have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 6 goals on the way.
BOLIVIA VS ARGENTINA. Argentina are long-odds on to defeat already eliminated Bolivia in Cuiaba this Tuesday and La Albiceleste should wrap up a routine victory to clinch top spot in Group A. Lionel Scaloni’s men have been no more than workmanlike in the tournament thus far, but they’ve claimed seven points from a possible nine following a 1-1 draw with Chile and a pair of 1-0 wins over Uruguay and Paraguay.
BOLIVIA V ARGENTINA Bolivia will be hoping to return to winning ways here after the 0-2 Copa America defeat last time out to Uruguay. It’s been seldom in recent games where Bolivia have shown defensive steel. The facts show that La Verde have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, giving up 10 goals in the process.
Argentina vs Ecuador A draw in their final group game secured the final qualifying spot in group B for Ecuador, which was much easier said than done against the hosts and tournament favourites Brazil, and it’ll certainly bode well for them as they come up against another one of the big guns in their quarter final.
