Argentina vs Uruguay Copa America 2021: Prediction
Argentina's squad is jam-packed with world-class players; however, they still rely on Lionel Messi; as we witnessed in the match against Chile, Messi’s solitary goal wasn’t enough to give the La Albiceleste three points.
The likes of Lautaro Martinez Nicolas Tagliafico and Rodrigo De Paul could prove to be pivotal in their next game.
While Uruguay highly relies on Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani, with their eagle eye in front of the goal, they can cause devastation to the opponent’s defense.
If Argentina plays as a team, they can easily eke out a win.
