Argentina returns to play in Copa America 2021 this weekend, when they face Ecuador at the Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico in a critical knockout match. Argentina has made significant progress over the last year and has the upper hand heading into this encounter.
Ecuador is clearly the underdog in this month’s quarterfinals, but they are more than capable of pulling off an upset on their day. Last week, Ecuador put up a valiant fight against reigning champions Brazil, and they will need to do the same in this match.
Argentina, on the other hand, is gaining confidence with each game and just smashed Bolivia 4-1 in their final group play. La Albiceleste, led by the great Lionel Messi, are the clear favorites to win this match.
