Qatar vs Argentina Preview

Qatar vs Argentina

Competition – Copa America

Stadium – Grêmio Arena

Date: 23rd June 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Many expected Qatar to be the team that everyone beats and expected Argentina to be the team that challenges Brazil for this competition, but as we speak, Qatar are ahead of the Lionel Messi-led Argentina on goal difference ahead of this final group game.

Both teams come into this match with a fighting chance of reaching the next round, yet it is the Argentines who have something to lose and they will be playing this game under pressure.

Argentina have yet to score a goal from open play in this competition despite boasting the likes of Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero.  They now face a tough test against a Qatar side that is determined to reach the next round and make a statement.

Qatar won the last Asian Cup in stunning fashion earlier in the year and they would be keen to not leave this competition in the group stages.

They have been tough to beat so far with Colombia needing to work very hard to beat them 1-0, so we expect them to go all out for the win here.

These teams have met just once before now with Argentina winning that game 3-0 in 2005.

Bookmakers have priced Argentina up as extremely short-priced favourites to come out on top in this game while Qatar seemingly need a miracle according to oddsmakers.

Goal markets point to a lively game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Lionel Messi is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game followed by Sergio Aguero and Paulo Dyabala.
