Argentina vs Colombia Preview

Argentina vs Colombia

Competition – Copa America

Stadium – Arena Fonte Nova

Date: 15th June 2019

Kick-off time – 23:00 GMT

Argentina will be open their Copa America campaign with this tough game and Lionel Messi would be hoping that he can finally win a major trophy for Argentina.

The Argentines come here after beating Nicaragua convincingly 5-1 with two goals from Lionel Messi. That win was their 4th in 5 games and only Venezuela defeated them 3-1 in that period of time.

While this isn’t one of the easiest games for Messi and his teammates, fans expect them to come here extra motivated to get all three points.

Colombia is not a team that should fear Argentina as they also come here with some of the best players in Europe who have a point or two to prove.

Colombia beat Peru 3-0 in their last warm up game to make it 5 wins from 6 games and they would feel that they have a point to prove in this competition.

They have been scoring goals in large numbers and we expect that to continue considering the amount of top attacking talents that they have at their disposal.

These sides have met 18 times before now and Argentina holds the better head to head record with 11 wins and just two losses.

Bookmakers have priced Argentina up as steady odds-against favourites to come out on top in this game however the odds are close and Colombia are very slight underdogs.

Goal markets point to a tight game as under 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Lionel Messi is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.
